Lambrecht's Gourmet Toffee in April 2011, when I attended the first Garden2Blog event, hosted by P. Allen Smith at his Moss Mountain Farm just outside Little Rock, Arkansas. He put us up in the Capital Hotel in downtown Little Rock and one of the perks of the five-star historical hotel is that they put 3-ounce bags of Lambrecht's Toffee on your pillow each night.
No one loves toffee more than I do. It's my favorite candy in the whole wide world. I've tried toffee in so many places that I've lost track and that includes several foreign countries. I like most toffees that I've had, but there's only one that I truly love.
Now I got excited when I saw that it was toffee, but then I ate some. It was the most incredible toffee I've ever eaten. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I know it's the world's best, because there's no possible way it could be improved upon. It has a crumble-crunch that almost melts in your mouth, and it doesn't stick to your teeth like some toffees do. And the chocolate isn't waxy at all - just milk chocolate that melts as soon as it hits your tongue.
Next week, I get to experience Garden2Blog, The Capital and Lambrecht's again. I'm going to try to find the toffee there in one of the local businesses so I can take some home with me.
And then I'm going to hide it.
