Hailing from the Longton area of Stoke-on-Trent, Walker’s have been producing traditional English toffee for well over a hundred years. Over the years, they’ve grown from a small local concern to a favourite all over the country and even beyond, but the recipe for their toffee remains a closely guarded secret.
Although the precise details of their manufacturing process may be a mystery, the basic process of making toffee is well understood. Toffee comprises just four main ingredients: sugar, butter, water, and a pinch of salt. Sugar and butter are slowly melted together over low heat, allowing them to caramelize and develop a deep flavor. The basic components are carefully heated to create a thick, sticky syrup with a perfect blend of sweetness and richness. This slow cooking process is what gives English toffee its distinct taste and colour.
Once the mixture reaches the right temperature, it’s poured onto a buttered surface to cool and harden. The end result is hard, chewy slabs of toffee just like you’ll find in this product. Of course, if you have the time, you could go to the effort of making your own, and without a doubt it would be delicious. But why not save yourself the trouble by buying Walker’s Nonsuch Original Toffee?
Even if you haven’t enjoyed Walker’s Nonsuch Original Toffee for a long time, as soon as you try it you’ll be relieved to find out nothing has changed! It’s still wonderfully firm and chewy, with a rich flavour that lingers in the mouth. Even if you break it up before you eat it – whether by using the iconic metal hammer, or simply whacking it off a hard surface – you’ll find that chewing Walker’s Nonsuch Original Toffee gives your jaw quite a workout!
Nobody else does traditional toffee quite like this, and we’re proud to be able to offer it for a great price here at Dalriata.
