Fresh & Easy Milk Chocolate Covered Toffee Pieces

Fresh & Easy Milk Chocolate Covered Toffee PiecesWe don’t have Tesco stores where I live. I’ve heard from my other candy obsessed compatriots that they have an excellent selection. So I was pretty happy to hear that Tesco was creating a little chain of American stores called Fresh & Easy, which might be described as a Trader Joe’s style of no frills shopping for the price conscious. I’ve visited a few times and tried their house brand chocolate (but never wrote it up).

Over the weekend I popped in because I’d read online that they carry Gimbal’s candy and I was on the prowl for the Sour Lovers (no luck on that front). Instead, I picked up one of the house branded tubs of candy, in this case their Fresh & Easy Milk Chocolate Covered Toffee Pieces which were a smidge expensive at $3.99 for 11 ounces. However, they do boast there there are no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives used.

The little nuggets varied quite a bit in size. Some were as small as a ball bearing while the large ones were about the size of a Peanut M&M.

The chocolate coating is sweet and milky and quite smooth. It was far too sweet for me, I would have preferred a dark chocolate version of these if they were around. However, the toffee center makes up for it with a deep toasted flavor, crunchy texture and salted butter notes.

They’re not earth shattering. There are other products like this, but not a lot available in this format: a tub for unabashed full-fisted snacking. I might get them again, or I might go for the little caramels they also had that looked kind of like the Tahitian Vanilla Caramels that Trader Joe’s has in little packets, except of course they don’t mention the vanilla part and the price is in keeping with the bulk tubs, not the single serve.

They’re good for snacking, for watching movies or perhaps even as an addition to ice cream.
