Long shelf life chocolate treat
R&J Toffees of San Jose opened in 2005 and since then has made one product only: their Premium Almond Toffee. Based on a decades-old recipe from the grandfather of the founders, brothers Ryan & Joel Sakakihara, it is a traditional toffee with good chocolate and almond flavor with a long buttery aftertaste.
The secret to their toffee’s buttery taste is that they age the toffee for 8-9 months before selling it. They recommend aging it further after purchase to deepen the buttery toffee flavor. It keeps in the fridge for 8-9 months, or a year in the freezer.
R&J Toffees are available online, in local Whole Foods, Costcos, and some other local stores. They also sell their toffee at special events and festivals. Visit their website to find other locations.
