Nut Free Maple CremesAs a resident of the state of Vermont, I can tell you one thing: people up here love their maple candies. If you walk down Main Street in my town, you’ll see maple sugar candies in several shop windows, a small piece of Vermont for locals and tourists alike to celebrate and enjoy. I felt like a bit of a traitor when I moved up here and saw the amount of pride Vermonters take in their maple sugar goodness; I’ve never been a maple candy fan, often finding it a bit too sweet and chalky for my tastes. However, I’ve finally found a maple candy that makes me proud to be a Vermonter: delicious Maple Creme chocolates from the Vermont Nut Free company.

They came to me via my boyfriend, who was given a box by a friend as a thank-you gift. Like any extreme Candy Addict, the small box of chocolates was the first thing I noticed when my boyfriend walked through the door. “What’s in the box?” I asked, trying to use my non-existent X-Ray vision to determine what lovely sweets he was carrying, “What’s in it!? What is it?? Is it chocolate!? Can I have one?!”

My boyfriend then opened the box to display a row of maple leaf shaped chocolates. “They’re so pretty,” I exclaimed, before realizing that the maple leaves were no decoration: “Ugh, they’re maple, aren’t they.” However, I am not one to turn down a chocolate, and so I decided to give the nut-free maple cremes a try. I’m SO glad I did: they are absolutely delicious.

The chocolate is high-quality and, though it sounds corny, you can tell that these candies are made with a lot of love. The presentation is flawless and the candy tastes even better than it looks, with rich chocolate cascading over a sweet, creamy maple center; a tremendous and slightly unexpected flavor combination that is reminiscent of the best chocolate chip pancakes you’ve ever eaten in your life. The sweetness of the maple, which I normally find a bit overwhelming, is perfectly balanced by the rich chocolate coating, making it an outstanding mix of creamy and sweet.

The centers of all Vermont Nut Free candies are made from scratch, by hand, at the candy’s processing facility, which is a nut-free environment designed to cater to those with tree nut or peanut allergies. And if maple isn’t your thing, the Vermont Nut Free Company has plenty of other options, including barks, bars, fudge, and crispy chocolate lollipops, all safe for those with peanut allergies, as the company was founded by a mother who wanted to make safe, delicious candies for her son, who has a peanut allergy, to eat. Mission accomplished, Mom! Not only is the candy peanut allergy-safe, it’s truly delicious as well.

    Cali girl me has never tried maple candy… it really doesn’t appeal to me, as “creamy” and “rich” aren’t the kind of words II would like to describe my candy. I’m more into “minty” and “fresh.”
