So Sweet!

B. Toffee

B. Toffee based in Newport Beach is our favorite toffee we’ve ever tasted. What started out as a cooking hobby for founder Betsy Thagard to be given as gifts for friends and holidays is now enjoying a cult-like following with gourmet candy aficionados. Each batch is still lovingly handmade using the finest ingredients available.

You can pick up signature B. Toffee canisters and boxes locally at Promelis Market or the ‘A’ Market both in Newport Beach; or at Hi-Time Wine Cellars and Where’s the Party? in Costa Mesa. (Check online for more stores.) B. Toffee is now available online for corporate gifts, personalized gift favors, and gift baskets. 949.722.9001.
