FYI, Where & Why
- Pure Maple Cream– This stuff is amazing. If you like maple syrup, then this is the stuff for you. It’s creamy and sweet without being too sweet. It’s the texture that just about kills me though. It’s so creamy! I love it. You can order it from Severance’s Maple Products 413-498-2032 (they don’t have a website, you have to call).
