Toffifay

Remember this candy, the ad said it was "too good for kids?"

Is it still around? They were little cups made of caramel, filled with a cashew (or some similar nut--not a peanut) and nogat and covered with a little chocolate. They were really good.

    Toffifay, it's too good for kids,
    Toffifay is made for grown-ups!

    It's still available in the Boston area. And I believe the nut inside is a hazelnut, no? But you're right, it's definitely not a peanut, and I don't think its a cashew.

    Toffifay is definitely still around.

    It's made by Storck, which also makes Reisen (a chocolate covered caramel) and Mambas (a fruit chew).

    I love the commercials that used to show "how they're made" where a big drop of caramel saw spin into a little disk, then formed into a cup - they dropped a whole hazelnut into it, filled with a hazelnut creme (nougat as they call it) and then a drop of dark chocolate goes on top.

    Even though the campaign when I was a child was that it was too good for kids, I used to buy the big trays.

    Oh, Toffifay...I remember many years ago going for a job interview at an ad agency on Madison Avenue. The interviewer offered me a sample from their brand new client's product: Toffifay. Yummy. Guess their ad campaign was a winner....

    It's spelled both ways.

    Toffifay is what it's called in the States. In Europe they call it Toffifee.

    Love Toffifay, still available in the Tops supermarket chain in NYS. Now if someone had a line on some Mambas, I haven't seen those in almost 20 years.

    Wander - I've found Mambas at Walgreen's lately (and Long's, but I don't know how many of those are left).

    Love it but it had better be fresh. Christmas time is your best bet. Otherwise, it will pull out all of your old fillings!
