- Comments Off on Christine’s Toffee – Munch Wisconsin’s best toffee
Lets start with where it comes from: the great state of Wisconsin. This toffee is made with real Wisconsin butter, not so surprising it being the butter capital of the world A buttery toffee is always better and what is the first ingredient on their toffee? Butter; sweet delicious butter from the same state it is produced in – local confectioners building a product with the ingredients readily available to them. But not only is butter used from Wisconsin, but in their coffee and bacon bars they use Wisconsin coffee and bacon. It’s always nice to get locally made items, and when those who produce said item locally – all the better. Fantastic local ingredients can only take something so far, there must be magic in Christine’s kitchen because the toffee coming out the door is incredible. The bacon toffee is sweet with salty nibs of bacon, a decadent contract and who doesn’t love bacon? Then there is the coffee – chocolate covered toffee with splinters of coffee beans speckled throughout the bar in a flavorful crescendo of treatdom.
What of this curator of candy?
As Sam, the owner, tried to think of how honor his mom he tried to find his mother’s recipe for chocolate popcorn balls, but to no avail. Sam met a woman named Leanne, and they worked together to create Sam’s mother’s snacks. Together they forged Popular Snacks, the company that makes the ever delicious Christine’s Gourmet Toffee.
