Brandini Toffee Review

We can't have a women only week without some chocolate right?  Brandini Toffee is an AMAZING chocloate too!!  Brandini Toffee is handmade with only four ingredients: butter, sugar, dark chocolate, and roasted almonds.  It is addictive!!  You can taste the dark chocolate, and the roasted almonds and the buttery toffee individually and yet they melt together to make the BEST candy/chocolate/dessert I have had.

The Brandini Company has a very interesting start up story.  This is from their website.  "During our freshman year of high school, our English teacher Ms. Douglas, told us she was planning a class trip to Italy. We were very excited about the possibility of going. Our parents liked the idea but told us that we’d have to find a way to pay for half the trip ourselves. We were too young to get jobs so we decided to start our own business. But what exactly? Brandon makes a tasty toffee and I just happen to love candy. Let’s start a candy company! Within a couple months we paid off our trips in full, plus spending money, and in the spring of 2007 we went to Assisi, Florence, Pisa and Rome.

Now we’re saving for college. Brandon and I are unsure as to where we would like to go to school but we do know that we want to further our education. While we’re away, our younger sisters will take over our jobs and they can make money for college. It’s the perfect plan!  Brandon and I met in preschool and have been best friends ever since.  ~Leah "

Can you believ that?  Holy crap!!  Makes me feel like a failure that at 28 I don't have a business ;)  They graduated from high school last June 2009.  They both received a McKelvey Foundation Entrepreneurial Scholarship. They will receive $10,000 per year to attend any 4-year college.  Brandon will be attending the University of Arizona and Leah Post, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

They received "The Best Chocolate Shop 2010" for the second year in a row.  They were on the Martha Stewart show and she loves their toffee. In Dec 2009, Brandini Toffee received the keys to a new manufacturing facility in Rancho Mirage, CA. Centrally located in the Coachella Valley, this 5,200 sq. ft. building will allow us to expand production and develop new products. With great visibility on Highway 111, this location is ideal for a retail storefront scheduled to open sometime before the holidays 2009. So if you’re in the Palm Springs area, look them up!

Another cool thing is they will be on the show Chef Vs. City on Food Network in June!!  I love their toffee and their company.  Check them out and I bet you will too!!!!!!!!!
