Enstrom Almond Toffee Review & #giveaway
Confession time- I have a horrible sweet tooth. Ok you probably already knew that about me by now. But I still feel better getting that out in the open! Normally I can statisfy the sweet tooth with your typical candy bar from the gas station. But once in awhile something a little more, shall we say- decadent, is very much needed and Enstrom Candies has just the items!
Enstrom was started back in 1929 by Chester K "Chet" Enstrom and one other gentleman as "Jones-Enstrom Ice Cream Company" and stayed in the business form for 30 years. During that time Chet worked on his favorite hobby, handcrafting confections and his specialty was Almond Toffee. He worked hard on trying to get that perfect batch of toffee. By 1960 it developed a reputation and at the urging of those receiving them, he started Enstrom Candies. 6 years later they were shipping Almond Toffee all over the country and to this day is still family owned with one granddaughter owning the company, one grandson running all the retail shops and great grandchildren learning the art of candy making!
Their Almond Toffee in Milk Chocolate is made with Fresh California Almonds, sweet cream butter, and a generous layer of Guittard chocolate all while being sprinkled with more Almonds! Their toffee is Certified Kosher Dairy. They also have Toffee that is covered in Dark Chocolate, or Almond Toffee Petites, Toffee Popcorn, and more!
Their Toffee is amazing! There is just the right amount of almonds and chocolate so it is not overly sweet. It really does the trick for my sweet tooth! The flavor of this is really just amazing. It is hard to describe it so you could fully appreciate how good it is!
Never fear- if Toffee isn't your thing they do have some other gourmet chocolates available for you. Enstrom's would make a great gift for any occasion. One thing to note- They are not certified GF. The Toffee does not have wheat in it (I don't think the other chocolates have it either) but it is processed in a facility that handles wheat. But they are still amazing and worth trying!
