Granulated Maple Sugar - anyone used it?

I was at a local festival today and while replenishing my supply of pure syrup and maple cream I found granulated maple sugar among the sweets on the counter. I was intrigued! Of all the years I'd spent in upstate NY I couldn't believe I'd never seen the stuff. Anyone heard of this? I heard you can substitute it for cane sugar, just divide in half, but I could see this not working well with things like cookies where the amount and type of sugar affects both the texture and taste of the final result. I could see it possibly working in a combination with granulated or brown sugar though.

Nonetheless I am fascinated now with this new discovery and am determined to find some great recipes for this stuff. Anyone heard of it or tried it?
