I love toffee and have found a great one from Enstrom. It is a Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee. This Almond Toffee is hand made in small batches so it is very fresh when it arrives. I received a one pound box of Almond Toffee.
This toffee was rich, buttery, and covered in crushed-almond. It was so good!! It was easy to break a part, it was some of the best I have ever had. I almost didn’t want to share it. I am now trying to save a little but I keep going back in the box and breaking off another chunk.
The history of this confectionery family dates back to 1919, when Chester K. “Chet” Enstrom got his start in the candy business. At 17 years of age, Chet went to work in the ice cream factory at Barthel’s Confectionery in Colorado Springs. Often, when his shift ended, he would help out across the street in the adjacent candy factory, and he quietly began learning the candy-maker’s art.
n 1929, Chet married and moved to Grand Junction, Colorado to begin a new life. There Chet and a partner, Harry Jones, launched the Jones-Enstrom Ice Cream Company, a business he pursued for the next thirty years.
Meanwhile, Chet also pursued his favorite hobby; handcrafting various confections. His specialty was almond toffee, and he experimented at night and on weekends, brewing up small batches of this hard-to-make treat as a gift for family and friends. By 1960, his almond toffee had begun to develop a reputation and, at the urging of those early gift-recipients, Chet founded Enstrom Candies.
Today, Enstrom Candies remains a family business. Jamee and Doug oversee the operation of the “Candy Kitchen” and retail stores in Grand Junction, Colorado, where every batch of traditional almond toffee is still made by hand with only the finest, freshest ingredients.
