Just beautifully set out, that you can see the staff working, wrapping and packing toffees. I just love the owners mom, she makes the store, she looks like the sweet lady, she is friendly and a breath of fresh air. Toffees are on hand to sample. I love the way they have restored this beautiful building. It's so clean and... More

When we arrived at this beautiful house,we were pleasantly surprised when we walked into a toffee haven and then tasted the most delicious toffees and flavours. Staff are so friendly and helpful as well.

We stopped by on a Saturday afternoon. The lady was so friendly and asked us all about where we were from and explained all the different flavours to us. You can also see where they make and pack the product which she also explained. Great product and well worth a visit!!

For all types of yummy toffees, the place to go. Incorporating some local flavor decisions into their recipes add a bit of flair.

The shop is nicely located just inside the factory and you can actually see the women preparing all the sweets. Not too many toffee options, though...

Thanks so much for your visit! We do have 9 different flavours toffee - maybe not bad for a company which is two years old, 3 different flavours toffee spread as well as fleur de sel and honey we sell! Please visit again! More

Good place to stop if you like toffee. The lady in the shop leaves you in peace to taste and buy. Quite a variety of flavors. They were just wrapping and packing in the glassed off factory area when we were there so not much to see.

I love their toffee, especially the liquorish (I'm Dutch). But all flavors are unique and worth a try before you pick your favorite. What I like most is their passion for what they do and it shows. Make sure you visit their lovely shop next time you are in Darling! In the meantime do yourself a favor and find a... More
