Sweet Bricks Toffee (100th post!)

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.
branding and packaging is A+

The package we recieved had 4 different flavors of hand crafted toffee. Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate, Cookies n Cream, Peanutbutter, and a smaller, more intimate packaging of a limited seasonal Pumpkin Spice.

Again, as a candy consumer, toffee is one of those candies that I never go out and purchase. If it's around, or if a friend snagged some exotic toffee candy from some far off adventure, I'd try it, but never have I pursued something in the toffee arena. I can without a doubt tell you, that Sweet Bricks will change your melancholic idea of how toffee should, and does, taste.

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.

Peanut Butter:

A favorite of most everyone in the household and any casual visitors that stopped by, this Peanut Butter Toffee candy offers some of the salty goodness of peanuts, and sweet smoothness of peanut butter, which ended up hiding a lot of toffee flavor, leaving you wondering if this was indeed in fact a toffee candy you just popped in your toothless mouth!

Pumpkin Spice:

As fall closes and winter begins, I'm not sure if this flavor will be on the table for much longer, but for lovers of all things Pumpkin Spice, get ready to get your mind blown by this sweet piece of Pumpkin Spice gold. Same as with the peanut butter offering, this flavor completely overtakes the toffee candy and washes over your taste buds like your favorite holiday flavored coffee.

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.

  1. Awesome post and pictures! I really love toffee so I would have been ecstatic over that box. Thank you for sharing this with us!

  2. The Sea Salt looks delicious. If you guys are ever on a trip through Minnesota, stop by Kings Bar And Grill in Miesville. They have over 50 burgers that have some pretty interesting ingredients.
