Maple producers here in New York State had one of their best seasons ever this spring, and they say the business is still expanding.

New York is the #2 maple syrup producer in the USA (Canada is #1, worldwide), and New York producers have grown the business by making more than syrup.

Many of the products are on display, and available for sampling, in the big maple sugar display. We sampled maple popcorn, maple cotton candy, maple cream (it comes in assorted strengths), and you can also buy maple candy, maple-bourbon sundaes, maple milk shakes and more.
