Inspired by the popularity of its bite-sized maple leaf-shaped Blond Maple Meltie, Purdys launched a full-sized 'Canadian Maple Bar' that blends the taste of white chocolate with maple flavors. Although the bar is larger in size than the original treat, it can be broken up into small squares, as with most chocolate bars.
For Canada Day, the maple-flavored white chocolate bar has been packaged in a festive sleeve that shows off the color of the chocolate bar against a patterned red box. As a result, the confection presents itself as a patriotic giftable for anyone with a sweet tooth.
As maple is one of the most celebrated flavors from Canada, confectioners are exploring it to the fullest for Canada Day 150 celebrations this year in both sweet and savory applications.
