Seriously, how on earth are you supposed to pronounce this? It's some sort of variation on the word toffee but it makes me think of "iffy-toffy" in English! To be fair though they are a German product so it's up to them what they call it. If anyone would care to enlighten me on the pronunciation, please feel free. I bought a box of these out of curiosity today and me and DH had stuffed them all by evening time. We staggered our doses throughout the day.
I go a long way back with this product but only because my next door but one childhood friend's father used to work for Mars. In the words of Mr T "I ain't no fool" when it comes to choosing mates! Her dad used to bring home a plethora of sweets for us to test and scoff. Her Mum used to have some special sweets that we weren't allowed to touch as they were for grown ups. They were the unpronounceable Toffifee although I can't say if they were called that in the early 80s.
Now we've got that trip down memory lane sourced, I'll move on with the review. The box of toffifee comes in 15 pieces and are shaped like half a small egg. They are topped with a chocolate drop and promise there is a hazelnut in caramel with creamy nougat inside.
This is a hard one to describe. It is not like anything I ate before. But I did say as I munched the first one that I could detect a nutella type taste. The outside are solid caramel, but it is a fudgy style one that melts in your mouth. The chocolate melts quickly too and then you deal with the hazelnut and nougat chewy texture.
The chocolates are nicely packaged in a plastic tray that you have to 'pop' the chocs out of - they did leap out too at first but the last ones were easier or I got the knack of it. They are covered in a plastic wrapper which has a gold pull on it for instant access. The wrapper keeps them all fresh. The tray has a wrap-around cardboard tube which it slides out of. The outer wrapper has the Toffifee logo written huge and a picture of the sweets described as 'Lecker! Delicious! Superbe!' - who could resist?!
99p from the shop of the same title - bargain!
These sweets are a great shape to sit in the side of your cheek whilst you worry at the chocolate top with your tongue. The caramel stays firm until you are ready to bite into it and the nut gives it some great texture. I like these sweets and they do taste quite 'adult' whatever that means! The fact that there are 15 pieces does not bode well for sharing unless there are three of you (or any other denomination of 15).
Definitely! Why has it taken me so long to try these?
