    Default Maple candy melting

    Hi all,

    Was wondering what others do for selling maple candy at outdoor markets when it's hot out. Mine likes to start melting and doesn't look very attractive anymore. Just curious what others do. I dont coat them, if I did would that help? Thanks in advance.

    Keep them slightly cooled. You can use a cooler with just a gel pack or 2. Works well, unless the cooler gets no shade.

    We make sure ours stay in the shade.
