Pure Vermont maple sugar candies have been popular Mother's Day, Father's Day, and birthday gifts for years. Why? Lets see... Maple sugar candy is unique, healthy, inexpensive, delicious, and also gives us a feeling of stepping back in time to when food such as cheese, milk, and fruits & vegetables came right from the local farm stand, and NOT from the supermarket or half way around the world. Back in the day maple candy came from the neighborhood sugar shack, often walking distance away. True, we now ship maple candies all across the country, but the production of maple candy is still very much the same as it was generations ago.
