Cows Dairy Butter Toffee and Assorted Flavors, Which One Do You Favor?Friday, May 14th, 2010 by Becca Droz
Denture Danger: 10
Sherwood Brand Toffee straight from the dairy of a cow, or at least the name implies so, has the original butter toffee flavor, and an assorted mix of vanilla flavored filled butter toffee, coffee flavored filled butter toffee and chocolate mint butter toffee. The assorted flavors are indeed in a particular order, ranging from worst to best.
My father has told me to try my best to not bash candies in my blogs because even if I think the candy is horrible there are bound to be people out there who have fundamentally different taste buds than I do and think that terrible candies taste good.
With that said, I can’t resist bashing the vanilla filled butter toffee cow candy. It is not often that a candy is so bad that (1) it causes an uncontrollable grimace and (2) I can’t force myself to swallow it and resort to spitting it out. I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt and try another piece, hoping that the first one I tried was merely a lemon, but I was equally as grossed out by the second attempt.
The reason I am justifying this bashing is because the assorted candies are still worth buying. The coffee flavoring filled butter toffee is alright, it’s not great, but I can’t really complain about it, and the mint chocolate butter toffee is something to tell your friends about. It is hard to go wrong with mint and chocolate, and this candy is proof because if a company can screw up a vanilla flavor as much as they did, there is no saying what they could do with other flavors; but they did not fail with the mint chocolate.
Of course the original cow dairy butter toffee is tasty, but a bit harder on the teeth, which is where the denture danger of ten comes into play. Get some assorted cows and keep the mint chocolate for yourself and pretend like you are being a nice person by dishing out the vanilla ones, boasting about how delicious they are and people will probably take your word for it.
