    Hey everyone. So, my mom has been making this English Toffee forever since my grandma died. It was my grandma's recipe, and my mom makes it every year during christmas time and gives it away to people. SOOOO many people have told her that she should try and sell it, that she finally decided to.

    So, this past weekend, we made a whole lot of toffee, made special bags for it that are heat sealed, with a resealable thing, and took em to the street fair. Wow, what a success.

    We sold 200 bags of the stuff in 5 hours. So, my parents asked me to put some on eBay and see how it goes. I decided I would show it to you guys, tell me what you think. If you buy some and mention MacRumors, I will give you a discount if you buy more than one bag ;)

    Anyways, heres the link.

    By the way, the candy really is awesome. I give it to my buddies in highschool and they love it.

    No MR member discount?

    Plus, my mom wouldn't buy it unless it was organic.

    You should use organnic ingredients and sell a (higher priced?) organic version for weirdos like my Mom.

    ... and make a totally inorganic version for the rest of us.

    BTW what is "English" toffee? I only know one type of toffee (i.e the stuff I have bought in NZ, AU & UK) ... are there other types?

    I wasn't aware there was an English toffee either, maybe fudge but not toffee unless its thorntons :) maybe because we call it sweets rather than 'candy'

    Don't forget to sell the recipe for a very high figure.

    The English Toffee looks delicious. Sounds an though you could easily setup a successful family business. Have you had any thoughts about expanding?

    Here is an article worth reading, about another small time local who got a product into the Sams supply chain...

    Definitely worth a read for your situation, if you haven't see the article before.

    Edit: I'm surprised I found the article in a few minutes, especially since I couldn't remember any of the names or the paper that published it.
