Almond Crack is one of the most appropriately named chocolates ever tasted: a sinfully addicting flaky butter-toffee (made with toasted organic Kashiwase Farms almonds, Gilt Edge Creamery butter, organic, fair-trade cane sugar and healthy dose of esprit du sel) dipped in 72% cacao Guittard chocolate.
Made by Nosh This, a San Francisco based company that specializes in handmade toffee, caramel, marshmallow, chocolate treats and sauces, Almond Crack is decadent, rich, and truly scrumptious. Did I mention addicting?
The name “Nosh This” is a tongue-in-cheek reference to founder Kai Kronfield’s half-Jewish heritage, with a little bit of attitude thrown in. “Nosh” is the Yiddish word meaning “to snack,” and with this name he is paying homage to his father, who stands at the kitchen counter having a nosh throughout the day. Kronfield is striving to bring noshing to the masses. What a splendid goal.
Winner of the 2014 Good Food Award (an award given to products with superior taste while honoring a company’s commitment to social and environmental responsibility), Almond Crack is sold in single serving packets ($3.50) or in a 4-piece box ($14).
