I’m an admitted chocoholic. There is nothing I love more than than a sweet treat paired with a hot cup of coffee. And when I first decided to put together a holiday gift guide, I knew that I had to tell people about Fraser Valley Gourmet.
Last summer while visiting Hopcott Meats in Pitt Meadows, I had the opportunity to try Fraser Valley Gourmet’s Almond Butter Crunch. A few minutes after first tasting it, I wandered back to the sampling table and sheepishly asked if I could sneak a second piece. The woman at the table smiled at me and told me to help myself – she knows how hard it is to take just one bite!
After a few hours of fun at the other end of Hopcott farms, I was still thinking about the candy. I rushed my family back over to the market within minutes of closing time – just to get a box of Almond Butter Crunch.
I’m not sure I want to admit it, but looking back, I realize now that I cradled the box carefully in my hands the whole way home and then placed it out of reach of my children. I’m also not sure that I want to admit to eating the whole box in one sitting the next day without sharing, but… It’s so delicious!
The ABC candy is made with 100% real butter, and contains no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. The high quality ingredients used to make it are evident in the rich, indulgent flavour.
I don’t know what it is about the combination of soft chocolate and the hard crunch of the candy and nuts, but the textures are just as appealing to me as the taste. I mean, I’ve had chocolate covered nuts and candy before, but this is something better.
Know someone on your Christmas list who would love to try this? The product is available in two sizes, with milk chocolate or dark chocolate topping: 150 gram box ($6.99) or 300 gram box ($13.99) in various stores across BC.
