Almonds: The Healthy Part of Prime Toffee

Posted by

Did you know that just a handful of almonds a day can help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels?

That’s why we make Prime Toffee with the freshest California almonds. Let’s be honest, the other ingredients in our toffee may be naturally delicious, but they aren’t always the healthiest. Luckily for you, we’ve balanced out the sugar with heart-healthy almonds.

Almonds have been around for a long time, and by the look of things, they won’t be disappearing any time soon. In fact, almonds made an appearance in the Bible when they blossomed forth from Aaron’s rod. That’s the kind of divine approval you can sink your teeth into.

And instead of throwing rice at newlyweds, the Romans chose to toss almonds. It sounds like a much tastier (and more expensive) tradition. Nothing says “congratulations” like pelting someone with nuts.

The almond tree arrived in California in the 1700s, brought over by Franciscan monks. They may have lived a simple lifestyle, but almonds were one thing they couldn’t go without. They make a great energy-boosting snack!

The history of almonds is a rich one—almost as rich as the flavor they bring to Prime Toffee. You’ll also enjoy our plain and chocolate-coated varieties.
