Enstrom’s Almond Toffee {Review & Giveaway}

enstroms_logo_replaced During the holidays is not a good time to start a diet! :) Okay so I’m definitely trying to eat better and smarter and not sit around snacking while still enjoying all the goodies of of the holidays. Well it just makes it ten times harder when I have companies left and right sending me so many yummy treats, and I’m happy to bring you a review of my recent favorite, Enstrom’s Almond Toffee.

Generally I don’t like nuts very much and I really haven’t liked toffee in the past because it’s always so hard. Well Enstrom’s Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT! Their toffee is just so soft and so easy to break apart, which is great because some of the pieces are a little bit too big and while I could easily just sit there and eat the entire box, I like to share with my family and friends; one because I know it’s not good for me to eat an entire box and two because I want them all to know how delicious it is! Like I said in my posting yesterday I’m a HUGE chocoholic so for me to really enjoy toffee is a big thing, yes there is milk chocolate in Enstrom’s toffee but it’s not overpowering in each bite which makes a nice change from my normal all chocolate treats. It’s the perfect blend of both salty and sweet. When snacking I find myself eating something sweet and then needing to eat something else salty to balance it out but not with Enstrom’s Toffee.

If you love chocolate, toffee or almonds, and especially if you love them together you have to try Enstrom’s because I know you’ll love it!

About Enstrom’s Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee:

Our all-natural, World Famous Almond Toffee is crafted from a perfect blend…fresh California almonds, sweet cream butter and pure cane sugar, covered in a generous layer of rich chocolate and sprinkled with crushed almonds.

About Enstrom’s Almond Toffee:

Three generations ago, Chet Enstrom perfected the art of blending the finest natural ingredients to create batches of almond toffee as gifts for family and friends. By 1960, his almond toffee had begun to develop a reputation and, at the urging of family and friends, Chet and his wife, Vernie, founded Enstrom Candies in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Over the years, the business has grown and been passed down from generation to generation. The family still follows the same original recipe for the almond toffee that Chet perfected almost 80 years ago. They have also created a delectable selection of fine chocolates, which like the toffee, are blended with only the freshest, high-quality ingredients to create luxurious and unique confections that are shipped around the world.

Today, Chet's granddaughter, Jamee and her husband, Doug Simons, have owned and operated the company since 1993, and oversee the operation out of Grand Junction. Chet's grandson Rick, and his wife Linda, manage the Denver area retail stores. This third generation continues to take pride in creating truly exceptional confections and still operates with the philosophy begun by Chet; that they're just making a little Almond Toffee for a few of their friends.
