Maple Candy – A Sweet Finish
Making maple candy is half science and half art – but the end result is 100% pure sweetness! The science part is easy. The art takes years of experience to perfect. Arnold Coombs’ grandfather perfected his recipe in 1925 and now this same tasty recipe has been passed down from grandfather to father to son.
Arnold first got a taste for maple candy as a four-year-old boy, exploring the candy kitchen. He still remembers feeling like a king as the candy packers – Marjory, Claire, Dot and all the others – motioned him over to their tables and offered him any pieces of candy that had gotten broken. Arnold’s walks through the candy kitchen quickly became a daily ritual!
