Nine out of ten dentists approve!

When this shows up on your doorstep, you know it's going to be a good day:

Last week I received a sample of Enstrom Almond Toffee. There are people who are totally gaga for toffee; I am not one of them. In general, I can take it or leave it. However, when toffee is really good, then I turn to hoarding mode. This, as you might guess, is really good toffee. Here's what makes it a winner: 1) There's a good balance of chocolate to toffee. Just enough chocolate to get the meltiness and the taste, while not overpowering the toffee; 2) the almonds are big and whole, which is always a good thing; and 3) the toffee doesn't stick in your teeth. I'm not sure how they managed to produce a toffee that I don't later have to pick out of my fillings, but they've done it.
The toffee came packaged in a sturdy, elegant box, so this would make a great gift. (And good price point, too: $19.95 for a one pound box, which goes a long way.)

Have you ever tried the English Thornton's Toffee. It comes in quite a few flavours - plain, fruit and nut, brazil nut, liquorice, banana, and treacle which is my least fave. I really only ever buy the fruit and nut and the brazil nut. I live in the UK and it is now available in most places. Originates from Sheffield in Yorkshire.

Hi Cathy,
No, I've never tried those. They sound yummy. Next time I'm at the British food store, I'll keep an eye out.

I advise caution. Although the toffee doesn't stick to the teeth, it still contains sugar ingredients. But yes it is still safer than the normal toffee.
