Why You'll Love

Handcrafted, fresh candy, made with love in Calgary using my fourth generation family recipe. This is the candy that started it all. Our Nut Free Olde English Toffee offers a buttery smooth flavour topped in rich milk chocolate. This tried and true classic begins with a crunch and ends with you begging for more!

Select a single portion (2 oz) for $5.00, or get the special deal of 5 candies for $20.00 (GST not included, shipping extra).

My fourth generation family recipe is the basis for all of my fresh confections. When I was a little girl, I remember helping my mom swish hot candy in pans, and trying not to get burned while tugging the edges off the candy into long, translucent strings that we called "angel hair".

The only movie I ever watched with my family growing up was "The Nutcracker", so it is not much surprise that I always wanted to be the Sugar Plum Fairy when I grew up. She was beautiful, kind, and made people happy with candy!

I love making people happy, and creating candy runs through my lineage. It only made sense to start my own confections business!

In the fall of 2011 at age 19 I began hand crafting and selling English Toffee and Peanut Brittle, and the flavor line quickly expanded as friends, family, and customers offered suggestions!


Around the third month I was in operation, I met a young girl with many allergies and was touched by something I had never thought of before: So many people have NEVER had Peanut Brittle due to a dairy or nut allergy; or fear of gluten contamination from baked goods in the same equipment. Being Lactose intolerant myself, I understand the frustration of seeing something delicious, and not being able to have it.

Usually brittles do contain alot of dairy, but with careful experimentation I was able to extract a wonderful flavor from the nuts (Nature's natural butter!) during the cooking process. My mom still uses butter, but I am slowly convincing her to become more allergen friendly, ans she now offers a small amount of Vegan candies!

I became resolved to offer 100% gluten, soy, dairy, nut, and egg free options.
I use 100% gluten and egg free equipment, and the equipment used for dairy, soy, and nut free candies is dedicated for those varieties. Allergen free candies never touch the same surface as nuts, soy, dairy, etc.

Many nut free customers have enjoyed the Nut free options, and keep coming back with ideas for more flavors!

I once met a young boy who was allergic gluten, soy, dairy, egg, nut, and fish. His mom and dad (and of course he as well) were so excited that I actually had options for him! They enjoyed a coconut brittle right then and there!

Moments like that spur me on to continue these candies, because above all I love those moments when I can bring joy to someone else!
