Brachs Butterscotch Disks

Brach’s Butterscotch Disks are the standard by which all Butterscotch Disks are measured….

Sharability: 10

Denture Danger: 8

Convenience: 10

Novelty: 8

Overall: 9

These simple little classic disc candies are one of the best.

The butterscotch flavor just hits the spot no matter what mood you might be in. Butterscotch is a color, and a flavor, and yours truly, a candy. Butterscotch’s base ingredients are brown sugar and butter; corn syrup, vanilla, salt, and cream are usually added to the concoction to create the deliciousness that this candy so well exemplifies.

It is made similarly to toffee, but the sugar is boiled to different levels in the two candies.

The word butterscotch prossibly originated in Doncaster, England by a man named Samuel Parkinson. He began making candy in 1817 and in 1851 the Queen royally approved the recipe.

It is a good thing she did or else we might not have these sweet satisfying little discs to bring us an extra moment of happiness in our beautifully busy, yet amazingly enjoyable, ineffably incredible lives.
