I bought a box of these to give my mom as a birthday gift (she loves maple anything). When the they arrived, I was so delighted! It was elegantly packaged in a little box with a ribbon. And the candies were also delicious (I may have "taste-tested" a couple, before gifting :). I've had maple candies before from the grocery store, but these are definitely a notch above. They taste fresher, more flavorful - more 'maple-y' - if that's a thing? Anyway, I highly recommend them! You may want to buy two - one box as a gift, and one box to eat yourself. Thanks, Sterling Valley!
