Maple Taffy Ice Cream (Laiterie de Coaticook)

Let’s start with a classic among classics: The Laiterie de Coaticook’s maple taffy ice cream. With its unctuous taffy sauce and crunchy bits of maple sugar, this gourmet series ice cream is truly a must.

Millebois Ambré (Millebois)

Millebois’ series of fermented maple beverages really showcase our region’s terroir, because all this young company’s products are developed by using their own maple tree sap. We recommend their Millebois Ambré for its rich and sweet taste, overflowing with maple aromas that will perfectly accompany a platter of aged cheeses.

Maple and Balsamic Vinegar Vinaigrette (L’Érable au fil du temps)

The flavours of maple and balsamic vinegar blend well together. The flavours of maple really goes well with the rich taste of balsamic vinegar. We couldn’t be more delighted to recommend trying this vinaigrette produced by a small but rapidly growing Saint-Ignace-de-Stanbridge company. It’s absolutely delicious poured over a strong peppery tasting lettuce such as arugula.

But, because we must choose but one, we recommend you try their maple sweetened white-chocolate bars! It’s SO delicious!!
