Vermont doesn’t mess around

Vermont, of all places, is pretty militant in regards to what you can call maple syrup and what you can’t. Law in Vermont states that you can’t use the word “maple” on a food product unless the item in question is 100% maple syrup. Ask McDonald’s, who famously tussled with and lost to the state in 2011 over a foodstuff called “Fruit and Maple Oatmeal.”
