Asher's Almond Buttercrunch Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have a wonderful new candy coffee that I am just reviewing for the first time and their name is Asher's Chocolates and they had an awesome Almond Buttercrunch that I got to try and fell in love with it. I would love to share with you some other product that they make beside the Almond Buttercrunch but we will go more into depth about that first before I tell you what other fascinating candies that they have!
Do you see those huge pieces of nuts on that bar?  Wow, I sure was in heaven when I got to eat those. Mike had had some dental work done and couldn't eat any of it, but I made up for him and me both! Toffee in any form is my all time favorite candy and I will go back to it just about every time. I do manage to get some form or variation no matter how hard I try to make it happen.
Oh, before I forget, they have a chocolate survey on their site and if you go and fill it out they draw names once a month for some free chocolate! Pretty darn cool, huh?
It was hard for me to decide and I kept going back and forth and then I just decided I would stick with something I knew so I chose the toffee like candy. I know it's not your traditional toffee but it is close enough. The package came with 2 really huge and thick pieces that all you could do is take small bites at a time. I made that candy last a pretty good while actually. If you love Heath Bars, then you will go crazy over this stuff. It's sorta like those but better, much better!
Vanilla Caramels, aren't they the bomb! I almost got these but I really love that almond toffee, so in the end, it won out! But boy, these sure where awesome. And then the other thing I love too is chocolate covered pretzels and Asher's has 2 different kinds, the actual whole pretzel covered chocolate and the pieces of pretzels covered in chocolate too.
They also had some awesome looking truffles that come in a pretty good second next to the almond buttercrunch but I knew I was getting those from another candy company so I did not bother looking at the truffles here until now when I needed to grab some pictures and boy, they sure do look good!
This is a mixture of the pretzels, bars and truffles all mixed together! Doesn't that look absolutely mouth watering?  I have to tell you that chocolate candy is my one weakness and downfall. I can go without cake and stuff alot longer than I can if I am around chocolate candy! It wins out every time no matter how hard I try.
Whatever happens to be your fancy, Asher Chocolate's will have what you want judging from the pictures I have found on several different kinds of candy and that is not even counting the ones that I don't really care for like hard candies and such.
Then lastly, I saw these gift baskets really loaded down with a little of everything for everybody! So, if there isn't something in there that everyone likes, then it just doesn't exist! Because that looks like one big mess of stuff to me and it's called the Snack Lover's Basket. So, if this is calling to you, at least you have a name to go with it! I know it would satisfy me because I see truffles and chocolate covered pretzels and maybe even some toffee or other nut topped chocolate!

Ok, so I'm a huge huge candy lover.. I shouldn't have read your review because this sounds soooooo good!! I love chocolate and toffee... I'd be in heaven!

I almost drooled when I saw the selection of peanut butter & chocolate treats. The Almond Buttercrunch would be ok too.

Laura said...

Chocolate is always yummy! I was also pleased to see they have quite a selection of sugar free as well. I have family members who are watching their intake for various reasons.

The Almond Buttercrunch sounds absolutely decadent. I am sure all of their candies are good but your review/description of the buttercrunch just made me crave something nutty & chocolate. My husband would love this too!


This makes me incredibly sad. The year I turned 40 I developed a deadly allergy to peanuts. I can have almonds or walnuts or whatever, just nothing to do with peanuts. Unfortunately that also means that I can't have anything that has been processed on equipment that has processed peanuts or peanut oils or butters. I MISS CHOCOLATE!

I love toffee! And the size and amount of almonds looks delicious! This and maybe a new toothbrush should be in the stocking.
