It’s a Purdy’s Chocolates Kind of Day Today!

Purdy's English ToffeeHappy Valentine’s Day!  It’s a chocolaty goodness day for many of you.  Lots of red velvet chocolate hearts bought today and diets taking a one day hiatus. My sweetie has hinted the chocolate he’s been craving and it’s not any of the fancy sort.

He’s all about the substance not about the look.  Forget about the little decorations painstakingly added or the fancy packaging. No, he just wants what tastes good and this year he’s craving Purdy’s English Toffee. 

For those who have never tried it, Purdy’s English Toffee is very rich and crumbly. Its REALLY buttery toffee that is smothered in chocolate and then rolled in toasted crushed almonds.  It’s a mix of crunch and smooth sweetness in your mouth.  Beware, as you’ll find yourself breaking off a small piece of toffee and then find yourself going back for more…and more.  Before you know it, it’s all gone! 

I’ve tried other toffees that are similar but haven’t found one better than Purdy’s. So I’ve promised myself I won’t have any of his but that will mean he’ll have to remove it from our home. It’s too tempting to sneak a bite and I know I won’t stop!

Here’s hoping your Valentine’s Day is filled with lots of love and LOTS of chocolate!

Is Purdy’s the best toffee you’ve ever tasted? What are the crumbly bits?

The crumbly bits are toasted almonds. It’s rolled in ground almonds at the end. Yum!
