One day recently I was watching something on TV and saw commercial for Legal Zoom. The ex-hubster and I used them for our divorce and saved ourselves a mint, however that is not why it caught my attention. The commercial was about a toffee company and scrumptious looking goodies had me drooling, the toffee looked amazing. Because the commercial was for Legal Zoom and not the toffee company, I wasn’t sure the company was even real. But you know me, the hound dog on the Internet, I googled “Elaine’s Toffee Company” and there it was, with pictures of that very toffee.
The story from the commercial was very sweet, a lady talking about her mother’s amazing toffee that everyone loved and how she and her sisters came to form the company, named for their mother. The photos on the website just added to my curiosity, and had my mouth watering. I decided I would give it a shot.
Now mind you, I am not one of those who parts with her money easily, so the prices kind of made the decision a tad more cautious to make, but I finally opted for the Dark Chocolate Almond Toffee. A 1 pound box is $21.50, which I purchased, along with the a bag of the Dark Chocolate Almond Toffee Nuggets for $6.95. With shipping my little indulgence was $39.40, steep to say the least but I was counting on this being truly outstanding.
I can describe this toffee in one word:
OMG this is baby angels dancing on the tongue delicious.
I shared some with my mom and sister the other night as we were watching the last few episodes of season 3 of Downton Abbey, which only made it all the more wonderful as we felt rather wealthy to be savoring such expensive treats. I nibbled mine with a glass of wine, I felt positively royal.
It is wonderful, buttery, crunchy English toffee, wrapped in chocolate and nuts. Worth every penny, believe me on that.
I will be buying more, and I will be purchasing it for gifts for special folks.
Check the website to see if it is sold near you, and save yourself the shipping if you can. You won’t regret it regardless of how you purchase it, just DO spoil yourself and buy some, then hide it from the kids. This is way too good for anyone but yourself!
