Maple Sugar Candy?

Anyone know where we can get Maple Sugar Candy in the LA area? Thanks in advance!

  1. I really wish I could help you because I LOVE Maple Sugar Candy and it's cracklike effects to me: hyper for 15 minutes, then crashing for the rest of the day. you might have to order it.

    1. Try Cost Plus or Monsieur Marcel at Farmer's Market...I had some recently and I think it was from one of these two.

        I would think both those places have it, but Monsieur Marcel's definitely has it.

        I know it's normally considered a VT product and not one from RI, but you might try the Cheese Store of Silver Lake as well.

      2. I've been dying for it too. When I open my restaurant, some day, I hope to have maple sugar candy as a dessert in some form.

        1. Oh, yes, please do! In the meantime, you can always re-read the desserts section of the Vermont chapter in Jane and Michael Stern's "Good Food," or try some of the maple doughnuts at Fritelli's.

          1. Can't you make a version by boiling down maple syrup?

              You'd have to get Grade B (which is, to be fair, usually available at TJ's) in order for it to have any taste whatsoever... and it would be some extremely expensive candy, much moreso than ordering it from the Vermont Country Store or whatnot.

                If one had to resort to that sort of thing, wouldn't whipping out a credit card and ordering it online be easier?
