Valentine's Review/Giveaway #2 ~ Enstrom's Almond Toffee



Sweets are a big part of Valentine's Day for most people. I'm not a huge sweets person, but there are a few sweet things that I cannot control myself around. One of those sweet things would be toffee! Mmmm, the crunchy, buttery, sweet deliciousness...somebody stop me. I've had lots of toffee in my day, but I honestly have never had toffee like the Almond Toffee from Enstrom's. Pure bliss.

Just listen to this description and tell me how you could possibly resist...
The perfect blend of sweet cream butter, pure cane sugar and California almonds, drenched in creamy milk chocolate and sprinkled with crushed almonds.


Let me just give you a personal account of how incredible this stuff is. When I got the toffee in the mail, Brian said "I don't like toffee. I don't see what the big deal is about it. It just gets stuck in your teeth and is annoying and doesn't even taste that good." This angered me (I am very protective of the things I enjoy) LOL. He proceeded to watch me open it up and I saw this little spark of interest develop. The next thing I knew he was asking to "just try a little" because he "might as well". Mmmmhmmm. The next words that came out of his mouth were "Oh my gosh. That stuff is really good. It's amazing, actually." Duh! But no, don't listen to me! LOL

We actually just got the box out of the freezer and both had a piece because he knows I'm writing up the review and just the thought of the toffee made us both want some. It's seriously that good, I'm not even kidding.

So, even the guy who basically called toffee "overrated" is now a serious fan and has already promised me that he will buy me a box of this Enstrom's Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee at least once a year (and that's only because I'm still trying to lose weight and then would like to maintain it, or I would demand it much more often than that). We've had it for well over a month now and have kept it in the freezer and just pull it out and break a little piece off every now and then and we are just now starting on the second big piece, so it lasts a while and is so yummy with a cup of coffee. Also, it's not sticky at all, like a lot of other toffee is. It isn't sticking in our teeth and that's just another selling point for Brian. We seriously just love this stuff. In fact, I don't believe I've ever had any kind of sweets that I've liked more than this. They also offer gourmet chocolates and sugar free options too, so be sure to check those out!

The sweet (ha, that's corny, but the lady I've worked with really has been sweet) people over at Enstrom's would like to share a box of their toffee with one of my readers! Isn't your mouth just watering in anticipation? See below for all the possible ways to gain entries into this great giveaway!
