After just one taste, I was inspired to write this
Love Letter to Toffee.
In fact, right now I’m treating myself to a little inspiration as I write.
Let me preface this post by telling you I was in no way begged, bribed, or bartered with to write about this toffee… it’s just that good.
This past weekend, I headed to Main Street Days- the official kick off to summer festival in Grapevine, Texas.
As my boyfriend and I strolled the streets, sampling food, listening to music, and checking out the local vendors, one particular booth caught my eye-
Let me give you a few adjectives that describe my feelings about toffee… delectable, fabulous, delightful, heavenly; I told you this was a love letter.
As we approached the Texas Toffee booth, I heard two of my favorite words in the English language: Free samples!
Now, while I love to partake in free samples (I’ll make entire trips to Sams Club or Central Market, just for the samples), I do at times feel slightly guilty in feigning interest in each product, with absolutely no true intentions of making a purchase.
To be quite honest, my intentions were no different as I took my free sample (okay, samples) of toffee.
However, after one taste, I was hooked. Form the milk chocolate infused pecan, to the dark chocolate with almond, every bite was better than the last.We walked away with not one, but two bags of toffee, a business card, and every intention of ordering again.
And order again I’ll have to, as I’m pretty sure those bags will be gone before I even get the chance to try it in some of my favorite toffee recipes.
After a day of grilling by the pool with friends, ice cream topped with toffee was the perfect end to an awesome weekend.
At $6 per quarter pound bag, this stuff is worth its weight in gold.
