Enstrom's Toffee


Sweet Treats Week- Review#6/Enstrom's Almond Toffee.
So I am not a huge fan of Toffee,  but I do usually like things spruced up.  That's exactly what Enstrom's Almond Toffee is...it's toffee spruced up with Almonds and Chocolate,  to make some of the best Toffee,  that you will ever taste!  Besides their world famous Almond Toffee,  they also offer Truffle Assortments,  Turtles, and Mint Meltaways.   They even have some Sugar Free  options.  If you are sending one of their items as a gift,  rest assured they have plenty of options including Gift Boxes,  Gift Baskets,  and Custom Message Sleeves.  

Enstrom's carefully crafts each batch to ensure the up most quality and freshness.   If you are located in Colorado,   they have several retail stores open,  where you can find all of their fabulous products.  Enstrom's originally started as a family owned business,  that sold ice cream in 1929.  Chet(the owner) loved making candy,  and specialized in English Toffee.  In 1965 he finally opened up a store,  and business soon boomed.  Today,  each batch is handmade in their Grand Junction Company. 

Enstrom's Almond Toffee  sent me a one pound box of their famous Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee to possibly review.  When it arrived it was wrapped in a pretty pearl white box.  The toffee arrived in perfect condition,  but contained a label on it that said to refrigerate,  so to the fridge it went!  After it had been in their long enough to cool down I took it out and immediately opened it up.  This isn't you average every day toffee,  this is much more!  The top contained a Almond  topping that was crushed  so finely,  it was almost like a powdery topping.  They also contained Almonds  throughout the Toffee,  but not too much.

As I bit into the toffee I noticed how extremely soft it is.  Usually Toffee is so hard and crunchy,  but Enstrom's Toffee is soft , and won't break your teeth.  Enstrom's Almond Toffee is all natural made with California Almonds,  Sweet Butter Cream,  and Pure Cane Sugar and then covered in a layer of Chocolate,  and then sprinkled with crushed Almonds.  They come in four different sizes:  1 LB.,  2 LB,  3LB,  and 5 LB ranging in price from $19.95 - $79.95.  They would make a great gift for anyone that loves toffee,  or even people that are not that fond of toffee,  as this toffee tastes unlike any other toffee you have ever tried! 

Enstrom's Toffee is by far the best Toffee that I have ever tried before!  I was thinking it would come in a large piece that you would have to cut into smaller pieces,  but I was happily surprised when I saw they come in bark size pieces.  Each one pound box serves approximately 10 people, and contains two layers of Toffee.  To ensure your toffee stays fresh and does not melt,  it is best to store it in your freezer or refrigerator.  You may store it for 4 to 6 months in your freezer,  or 2 to three weeks in your refrigerator.  I definitely give Enstrom's Almond Toffee two thumbs of approval!
 
*Disclaimer-  Enstrom's kindly provided me with a box of their Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee to possibly review.  In no way did this alter my opinion of their products.  All of my opinions are one hundred percent honest and true.*
