“Anneaux à l’érable”, or Maple rings, is a package designed for a project called “Selling Quebec” that contains products from the maple, a typical tree of this province, including syrup, the most recognised one. Cookies (made of maple butter) perforated in the center enable the integration of the cylindrical vial containing the syrup. It is suggested to pour syrup onto the biscuits enhansing the experience of teatime.

What’s Unique?
The maple sap is collected from inside of the tree and then converted to maple syrup. This packaging is unique because it was designed to remind a trunk of a maple tree with the syrup hidden in the center.
