I miss my dad terribly – and Father’s Day can sometimes be hard when my friends are spending time with their families. My dad had a sweet tooth and I know he would have loved these yummy toffees from Darling Sweets.
They have a wide range of flavours bound to please the paternal palate – from Bird’s Eye Chili to Red Wine & Chocolate and – their recently released – Coffee Toffee.
Says Darling Sweet’s toffee-maker Hentie van der Merwe: “We have a lot of families who come to our factory shop in Darling to buy toffees and we always find the fathers slipping an extra packet or two into the shopping basket for themselves.
“Favourites among male shoppers are the Bird’s Eye Chili, the Red Wine & Chocolate, the Ormonde Wine, the Licorice and our newly released Coffee toffees,” adds van der Merwe.
Altogether, there are nine flavours from which to choose, including those mentioned above as well as Tannie Evita’s Classic, Honey & Salt, Orange & Cranberry and Mint.
Darling Sweet toffees are handcrafted using traditional methods and with no artificial colorants, flavourings or preservatives added. Furthermore, to produce a range of toffee flavours that are unique to Darling and its surrounds, van der Merwe and his partner Frits van Ryneveld use as many locally sourced ingredients as possible.
Darling Sweet also manufactures toffee spreads in three flavours – Tannie Evita’s Classic, Bird’s Eye Chili, and Honey & Salt – as well as locally sourced raw veld flower honey and fleur de sel, hand-harvested salt.
