New in the Market: Dave’s Sweet Tooth Toffee

We love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

What started as a homemade toffee recipe from retired Detroit firefighter, Andrew Chmielewski, turned into a business, Dave’s Sweet Tooth, for his son Andrew. Launched in 2011, Dave’s Sweet Tooth now sells toffee nationwide.

The company prides itself on handmade toffee made from simple ingredients with a sweet soft crunch that won’t break a tooth. The toffees are available in 8 and 20-ounce jars or resealable 4-ounce packages. They are certified kosher (Council of Orthodox Rabbis of Greater Detroit). We tasted 5 flavors. All were equally good and it would be personal preference which one to choose.

Coffee Toffee had a mild sweet coffee flavor. One ounce (1/4 of the package) had 150 calories, 11 grams of fat, 13 grams of carb (11 sugar and 1 fiber) and 50 milligrams of sodium.

Dark Chocolate Toffee was our favorite. One ounce (1/4 of the package) had 150 calories, 12 grams of fat, 13 grams of carb (11 sugar and 1 fiber) and 55 milligrams of sodium.

Dark Chocolate Cherry Toffee a one ounce serving (1/4 of the package) had 150 calories, 11 grams of fat, 13 grams of carb (11 sugar and 1 fiber) and 50 milligrams of sodium.

Milk Chocolate a one ounce serving (1/4 of the package) had 120 calories, 10 grams of fat, 10 grams of carb (8 sugar and 1 fiber) and 55 milligrams of sodium.

Peanut Butter Crunch Toffee a one ounce serving (1/4 of the package) had 150 calories, 11 grams of fat, 12 grams of carb (10 sugar and 1 fiber) and 70 milligrams of sodium.

Once opened the brand recommends storing the toffee in the refrigerator.
