The Northern treat maple taffy is made by pouring boiled down maple syrup onto snow or man made snow and then wrapping it around a popsicle stick to then be licked off.

Canadians well known for their famous maple syrup also call this sweet treat "tire d'erable".

The process of making maple taffy involves boiling down maple syrup to the point past where it would be maple syrup and before it becomes maple butter or maple sugar.

Traditionally, the thick syrup is then poured onto snow in the winter time where it hardens slightly, enough to smash a popsicle stick onto it and wrap it around.

The consistency is then of a very thick and slow moving liquid which is why it's then called taffy.

In Quebec City, this treat can be found along the sidewalk by a couple street vendors or even more widely known to be found at sugar shacks. For a great experience, visit nearby L'Isle D'Orleans (the island of Orleans) and find a sugar shack that will give you a taste of the best that Quebec has to offer!

    • Awesome! They have some good maple taffy there on the side of the street. I bet it’s cold there right now though.

        I’m glad you like our products :). For the temperature, it’s warm these days, around 5°C and more. It is not common for this time of the year though ^^’
