Review: Mackintosh's Mack Toffee

I got Mackintosh's Mack Toffee (made by Nestle) because my brother was going to Canada and I wanted to request some new foods to try. I did a quick search for quintessential Canadian foods and they turned up so here we are.

These are only sold in Canada and a 170g bag was $3.29 CAN (~$3.00 US).

While they're called "toffee," these are definitely soft caramels by American standards. The wrapper states, "caramel au beurre," which I'm pretty sure literally means "caramel with butter." Google Translate tells me it means "toffee" though, so make of it what you will.

The package indicates that these are great for baking. The American analogue would have to be Kraft's caramels I think.

Mackintosh's Mack Toffees are really soft. Almost melt in your mouth soft. It's a pretty satisfying texture that doesn't have too much chew to it and isn't going to pull any fillings out.

The taste is richer than Kraft caramels with a nice, butteriness to them that isn't overly sweet.

Overall, Mackintosh's Mack Toffee are pretty good. The mouthfeel is satisfying and the flavor is enjoyable. If you're into caramels and find yourself in Canada, they're definitely worth a try.
