Our Toffee Packaging
Our Toffee Packaging
The way we package our toffee says a lot about our values.
At Vern's we take every precaution to be sure each box of candy made with Vern's original toffee recipe retains its freshness and flavor. (Please see How To Care For Our Toffee.)
First, we hand-pack, hand-wrap and carefully hand-seal each box in a special air-tight cellophane shield to lock in its delicious, all-natural goodness.
We hand-sign an attractive gift card and attach it to your gift boxes. Then we package your toffee in specially designed outer cartons to guarantee its safe delivery -- picture perfect -- to you and your gift recipients.
These serving sizes are approximate. Our toffee can be saved from one serving to another, so you don't have to worry about ordering too much.
|½ LB.||4 1/2 " W x 3 3/4" H x 11/4" D 2 layers.||Serves 1 person
(Minimum quantity 2 or more to each destination)
|1 LB.||7 1/4" W x 4 1/2" H x 1 ¼" D 2 Layers.||Serves a couple, small family or group of 4.|
|2 LB.||9" W x 6 3/4" H x 1 1/4" D 2 Layers.||Serves a family, group of 6 to 8 or small office.|
For larger groups, we suggest a combination of any of these size boxes. We can also provide a variety of custom packaging. Please see the section on GIFT BASKETS & CUSTOM PACKAGING for details.
How to Care For Our Toffee
Because Vern's Toffee is made with butter it should be treated as a dairy product. Your candy has been refrigerated before it is shipped and will travel well even in the summer.
When your box of Vern's Toffee arrives , it is imperative that it be stored in your refrigerator or freezer. The toffee can be frozen, thawed, and refrozen without harming its rare taste. Some customers subdivide our toffee into smaller quantities in airtight freezer bags.
We recommend serving the toffee at room temperature, although many of our customers tell us they love it cold.
Conservatively, our toffee will keep well in the refrigerator for three weeks (take care to guard against moisture getting to it), and three months in the freezer. In practice, many of our customers keep a supply of toffee on hand in the freezer for those unanticipated occasions like house gifts and bridge parties. They report the toffee tastes just as delicious after up to a year in the freezer and several weeks in the refrigerator.
