From Mount St. Mary's Abbey
MAPLE WALNUT PENUCHE


The first monastery of Cistercian Nuns in the U.S. -- famous for their candy-making for almost half a century. "Our candy is a gift of peace and praise of celebration of joy in serving you."

The name is derived from the Spanish word for brown sugar, but its maple flavor makes it a New England favorite. The nuns use cream, walnuts, butter and, of course, real maple syrup to make this delicious treat.

Mount St. Mary's Abbey: Wrentham, Massachusetts

Mount Saint Mary's Abbey is the first monastery of Cistercian Nuns in the United States. Located in scenic New England in southern Massachusetts close to the Rhode Island border the Abbey is easily acessible from Boston or Providence. The sisters come from all parts of the United States and from several other countries.

The first sisters arrived in 1949 from St. Mary's Abbey (Glencairn, Ireland).The community grew rapidly and in 1964 the first foundation was made in Dubuque, Iowa. Our Lady of the Mississippi was followed by Santa Rita Abbey, Sonoita, Arizona in 1972 and Our Lady of the Angels, Crozet, Virginia in 1987. At present there are 48 sisters at Wrentham. They support themselves by making Trappistine Quality Candy and by raising sheep for wool.
