Dollar Make You Holler: Almond Roca

6925-almond roca-thumb-450x337-6924.jpg

Don’t be fooled by the “English Toffee-pieces with nuts” adverbabble on the front–this is Almond Roca, albeit in slightly shabbier form. The packaging may say “Factory Seconds,” but these gold-foil-wrapped lovelies are still tops in taste in my book. They were my favorite candy when I was a youngster, and were a surefire way of getting my toddler self to give a hug or kiss (hey, this loving don’t come for free). Sure, the toffee may get stuck in mouth crevices you didn’t even know you had, but it’s a welcome price to pay for the perfect blend of buttery toffee, chocolate and almonds. You won’t be sorry…until the bag is empty and you realize offering hugs and kisses for this candy now is on this side of creepy (unless said exchange is with your husband; in which case he really should buy it as soon as he reads this post *ahem*).

Almond Roca found at the 99 Cent Store: 2560 Notre Dame Boulevard, Chico, CA 95928

    Don’t hate on “English Toffee-pieces with nuts”

  2. I’m not hating. I’m just saying that not even being stuck with second-class labeling can distort the sweet, sweet taste of Almond Roca.
