Review: Ethel's Chocolates Pecan Toffee Crisp (Milk)
I risk hyperbole with this review. My tasting notes say things like "OMG" and "Good S#$%" so that gives you an idea about what we thought. The Pecan Toffee Crisp is the perfect salty-sweet combo - which we all know makes one's taste buds stand up and take notice. The combo is extremely well-balanced. It is quite salty to start, but then the creamy, milky chocolate kicks in, leading into the crumbly and sugary nuts inside. The crumbly nature of the nuts, and the piece in general, is what really puts this over the top. With many toffees, brittles and similar confections, they are more crunchy than crumbly, they are harder overall. Plus, you often get pieces stuck in your teeth. Ethel's Pecan Toffee Crisp is not like that at all, it soesn't stick to your teeth, it has the perfect texture, and a great balance of flavors.
