I have found maple sugar at the Raisin Rack grocery store in Westerville, OH. They have a website that you can purchase it from: www.raisinrack.com as well. Our local Whole Foods store in Dublin, OH doesn't carry it.

I haven't purchased the maple sugar, but I have seen the maple sugar flakes. I am thinking it comes as a flake (probably dehydrated from the syrup.

Glad to see I'm not the only one!
I am having no luck finding the maple sugar! I was convinced I had read something wrong - and was looking for something that didn't exist! lol

I finally found it at Whole Foods, but for only 18oz it was like $12. Owch.

I have yet to find maple sugar. I made her granola yesterday and just subbed maple syrup. So far I haven't found a recipe where I couldn't make that sub. I don't really see maple sugar as an great sub for regular sugar because it still has that maple flavor.

Yes, I buy agave nectar, maple syrup, and maple sugar all in the syrup section at Trader Joe's.

The difficult is done at once; the impossible takes a little longer.

I was looking by the sugar, maybe that was my mistake. I'll check by the syrups. Thanks for the suggestion.

I found it in one of my local grocery stores next to the maple syrup. Do you have a Giant or Stop and Shop near you?

Today I was reading the chapter on Nasty Foods: Processed Sugar. I had no idea that evaporated cane juice was almost as bad as refined sugar. I mean - it's certainly an improvement - but Alicia doesn't seem really keen on it.

So, my question then is where the Hell do you find maple sugar? I have tried Sunflower Market, Trader Joes, a natural foods coop, and can't find any whatsoever, just different forms of cane sugar (turbinado, succanat, etc), stevia, and xylitol. Is the only place to get maple sugar online?
