It seems like Christmas came early for us here at FGFB headquarters. We opened the door to find a package delivered from the great and powerful candy chefs of Sweet Bricks. I was unsure what to expect and was frankly blown away at how awesome toffee, a candy which barely passes my lips these days, could be.

Let's start off with Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Toffee:
This Salty Sweet concoction let's the chocolate take a back seat to the sweet toffee, but is still there, twiddling it's thumbs about, waiting for after you've tasted the sea salty goodness to show it's face, and then let the toffee take over the after taste.
Cookies n Cream:
This offering to the toffee gods was Mikes favorite. This piece of toffee heaven feels more like if Oreo decided to make a toffee flavored cookie. The chocolate and cream wash over every other flavor in your mouth, and then, out of nowhere, comes the old toffee friend, clapping you on the back for a job well done. I was shocked on how well the flavor rolls together, like a well orchestrated symphony, it's absolutely stunning.
In a word, Sweetbricks toffee candies are amazing. I find myself hard pressed to include the word 'toffee' along with their review, only because I think in the candy world, toffee is the old man, sitting at a diner, sipping coffee, eating a slice of pie, and getting ready to start a hard days work. It's honest, it's knows what it is, and does a fine job doing it without asking for anything in return. Which I think is the thought behind bringing such awesome candies to the forefront and into a new age. Honesty and integrity, but with a hip name and packing.
Sweetbricks are delicious, and I highly recommend you picking some up immediately.
