Three generations ago, Chet Enstrom perfected the art of blending the finest natural ingredients to create batches of almond toffee as gifts for family and friends. By 1960, his almond toffee had begun to develop a reputation and, at the urging of family and friends, Chet and his wife, Vernie, founded Enstrom Candies in Grand Junction, Colorado.
Over the years. the business has grown and been passed down from generation to generation. The family still follows the same original recipe for the almond toffee that Chet perfected almost 60 years ago. The family has also created a delectable selection of fine chocolates, which like the toffee, is blended with only the freshest natural ingredients to create luxurious and unique creations that are shipped around the world.
Today, Chet’s granddaughter, Jamee and her husband, Doug Simons, oversee the operation out of Grand Junction and Chet’s grandson Rick, and his wife Linda, manage the Denver stores. This third generation continues to take pride in creating truly exceptional confections and still operates with the philosophy begun by Chet over 60 years ago; that they’re just making a little Almond Toffee for a few of their friends.
About a week ago I received a 1 lb package of Enstrom's World Famous Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee. DELICIOUS!! The toffee is covered in a layer of Milk Chocolate which is then covered in Almonds. I brought it to my families Thanksgiving dinner and heard nothing but rave reviews! It quickly became an empty box! Although we didn't have any Almond Toffee left to preserve, Enstrom's recommends storing for 4 to 6 months in the freezer and 2 to 3 weeks in the fridge. That would be perfect to have in the freezer to get your chocolate fix in and not have to worry about devouring the whole box!
One great thing to mention is in support of our brave troops, Enstrom's is currently offering free shipping to APO and FPO addresses! Please place your orders by 1pm Mountain Time on December 8th if it's to arrive by Hanukkah and December 17th is it's to arrive by Christmas.
