The texture of a sweet treat can sometimes be almost as satisfying as the taste of the item itself. On Buttercrunch Day, both the crunchy consistency and the dark toffee taste of buttercrunch deserve to be celebrated!

It’s not known who came up with the idea for this great day, but it was certainly a good one! For buttercrunch is a type of candy (sweet) made out of butter and brown sugar. It is then boiled to the hard ball stage before some vanilla and baking soda are quickly added to it. This cooking process creates that famous crunchy texture that is impossible to resist!

The flavour is great on its own, but is often enhanced with a topping of dark chocolate. It is also commonly rolled or sprinkled with sliced almonds, giving it another layer of textured deliciousness.

Whether it be in the form of buttercrunch ice cream, sprinkled on top of a cheesecake, or simply enjoyed as a chunk of buttercrunch almond toffee, it’s good stuff! Happy Buttercrunch Day!
