Brown Family Farm Maple Candy

Unless you live in some horrible utopia without seasons, fall has descended like a warm Рcold Рblanket, wrapping you with wet leaves of many colors, harbingering hot cocoa, carved pumpkins, and whatever autumnal clich̩ you want right here.

But most importantly, when there’s a nip in the air, we all know that a boy’s thoughts turn to tree sap. Even better: maple sugar candy.

The Brown Family Farm of Brattleboro, Vermont, makes all manner of maple syrupy things, but we’re trying the Pure Maple Candy – in the shape of a leaf.

Have you ever had maple candy? I mean, candy with only one ingredient: 100% pure maple syrup? Well, what are you waiting for? This stuff’s delicious.

Wait, you haven’t? You want to know what it tastes like?

Okay, picture a wedding cake. You know that edge icing that’s like crystallized sugar? Well, maple syrup candy is the consistency and sweetness of that icing. It’s not hard, but it holds its shape. And yes, it’s very, very sweet. Obviously: it’s a candy that has sugar as its only ingredient.

But what makes this candy delicious is simple: all that sugar is the flavor of maple syrup. Real maple syrup.

In other words, this candy doesn’t taste like Mrs. Butterworth or Log Cabin syrup; it has the wonderful rich flavor of rarefied liquid sugar from maple trees.

So even though this 1.5 oz (42g) candy might seem small, it goes a long way; there’s no way you want to take normal-size bites. I more or less shaved off small portions with my teeth, then let it dissolve on my tongue in maple-y goodness. Ohhh yeahhhhh.

I recommend Brown Family Farm Pure Maple Candy very highly. Go ahead and fall for it.

    Re: horrible utopia without seasons.

    I’ve lived in either Monterey or Southern Texas the last three years. There are no seasons to speak of and this post made me feel totally deprived of color-changing leaves, knit hats, and being able to see my breath in the morning when I take my kids to school.

    Even though those maple leaves look small there’s definitely enough to put you in a sugar coma for a short while. All worth it of course.

    Oh, thank you for posting this!! I LOVE pure maple candy. We used to get it at different festivals when I was growing up. My poor, deprived husband, however, has NEVER tasted it. For as long as I’ve known him (ten loooooonnnnng years), I have searched for pure maple candy…but I can no longer find it anywhere! All the festivals now sell imitation corn syrup junk tablets.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for showing me where I can get some real maple candy!

    Oooooohhhh… I haven’t had any of this since I was a kid! We used to go to Vancouver B.C. every fall to visit a family friend, and they sold little packages with four or five tiny, differently shaped maple leaves inside on the ferry. Man those were good! I’ve got to go find me some!

    As a Canadian, I am well aquainted with this stuff – heck, it’s the symbol of my country! Around here, you can find pure maple and “maple-flavoured” (boo) candies at any gift shop or farmer’s market. Hmm, now I’ll have to hit up the ol’ market on the weekend.
