This Blueberry Maple Syrup is made by Maine’s Own Treats in Trenton, Maine. Combining two of Maine’s signature flavors the Gauvin family takes Maine Maple Syrup and cooks real Maine blueberries – the tiny-sweet-bursting-with-flavor kind – right into the maple syrup. It’s amazing on pancakes, ice cream, yogurt, or perhaps try it in a smoothie!
Maine’s Own Treats began in 1975 when the original owner, K. Weymouth Howard, Jr., a retired submarine cook, made his family’s old recipes for jams out of his Sea Captain’s home in Blue Hill, Maine. After winning multiple blue ribbons at the fairs and demand becoming so great for his jams, he moved the business to their current, 30 acre, location on the Bar Harbor Road. In 1987, the Gauvin family took over Maine’s Own Treats with Weymouth staying on to continue cooking the jams into his late sixties before retiring. They have expanded the flavors, but the originals still remain. Their jams, jellies and syrups are still made the old fashioned way, over a stove and hand poured.
