One of the very first products we knew we wanted to offer when we started Vermont Crafted was fresh maple candy in a small versatile size that could be enjoyed on its own or as an ingredient.
It was surprisingly hard to find!
Here's a dirty little secret - most of the maple candy available is encapsulated by a "crystal coating" - which may or may not be made out of maple syrup - to prevent it from drying out and extend its shelf life.
Inspired by one of the best things we've ever tasted - a maple "creemee" topped with fresh maple sugar crumbles at a town fair on a hot summer day - we set out to find a maker that would create fresh maple candy for us in bite size pieces.
The folks at Wood's Maple were up to the task! And now we're delighted to offer fresh maple sugar cubes in these USA-made glass jars (also surprisingly hard to find).
These melt-in-your-mouth treats are NOT like the dried out maple candy that's been sitting on a store shelf.
Whether you mix them in oatmeal, yogurt, ice cream, batter....or just enjoy them on their own, we're sure you'll be delighted with our fresh maple cubes, made in small batches right here in Vermont!
