Newtown's Maple Craft Foods company 'makes life sweeter' with trendy flavored maple syrups

With the colors changing in the leaves, folks are more inclined to reach for a bottle of maple syrup as they prepare their favorite maple treats. Recently, people aren't just looking to grab a bottle of store-brand syrup (which often has more corn syrup than maple); instead, they're looking for the real, tapped-from-the-tree maple syrup, in a variety of flavors.

Runamok Maple and Stonewall Kitchen are two brands that sell their flavored or infused maple syrups in Connecticut, but the state is also home to Maple Craft Foods, based in Newtown, which also offers pure maple syrup and flavored variations.
