    Moose Mountain Maple

    When a product comes with seven generations of family tradition, it’s {pretty much} guaranteed to be delish. That’s exactly the case with Moose Mountain Maple. Pure maple syrup from Vermont mixed with bourbon, rum or just by itself is incredible on pancakes, French toast, over vanilla ice cream, or straight out of a cup. The maple flavor doesn’t stop at just syrup. Moose Mountain Maple has a maple cream that comes in a cute little jar — think maple cream cheese that could go on a bagel or used as a fruit dip — as well as maple cotton candy.

    Jordan and Joelle are true Jersey Girls. Originally hailing from down the shore in Hazlet, NJ, the girls made their "rite of passage" move to Hoboken a few short years after graduating with degrees in Communications from Loyola University. Outside of their 9-5 as senior publishers in NYC, the twins can be found walking their yorkie-poo Chica, working out at the best hot yoga studios, or trying out the best restaurants in town. Like many 20-somethings, Jordan and Joelle are balling on a budget and know how to score the best deals around town!
