We love toffee/buttercrunch (here’s the difference). So when we receive a gift of it, we tingle with anticipation.

Sometimes that tingle pays off on the palate, sometimes not. When you’re a food writer who has tasted thousands of products a year for 15 years, you acquire a deep perspective on what is good, great, and just O.K.

We hasten to add that, like the beauty in the eye of the beholder, individual tastes vary. We always use the chocolate chip cookie analogy. Even with a very good cookie, you have your preferences:

Chewy or crunchy, milk or dark, chips or chunks, nuts or no nuts, normal or densely-packed with chips and nuts, etc. Every chocolate chip connoisseur knows what his/her ideal cookie tastes like.

So how do you evaluate toffee? For us:

  • The butteriness of the toffee layer. As with a caramel, we want the butter to shout out.
  • The quality of the chocolate. A premium chocolate is expensive, but we’re happy to pay more.
  • The freshness of the nuts. It’s not that we get toffee with stale nuts, but we can tell when they’re tasty-fresh.
  • The texture should be crunchy, not chewy.
    Fowler’s Toffee is a winner.

    The family business has been making toffee for more than 20 years. It began as many artisan products do: batches given as gifts to friends and family.

    The word got out, people came clamoring, and Fowler’s Toffee was born. It is available in:

  • Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee
  • White Chocolate Cashew Toffee
  • A mix of both
    The company also makes chocolate bark, which we plan to taste next, in:

  • Milk Chocolate Almond Bark
  • White Chocolate Almond Bark
  • White Chocolate Peppermint Bark
    The packaging is handsome: chocolate-brown boxes with grosgrain ribbon and a teal label. Custom labels are available for corporate gifts and special occasions.
