Things are looking sweet for one hardworking First Coast small business. Locally owned artisan toffee company, Amelia Toffee Company, is quickly gaining national recognition for their uniquely flavored, hand made toffee.
Led by “The Toffee Lady” – Anita Comisky – ATC is rapidly garnering national attention with multiple opportunities to take their uniquely flavored luxury toffee treats (made by hand in their Fernandina Beach store) well beyond the First Coast. Not only has the company been chosen to be a vendor at this year’s Republican National Convention, their toffee is listed on Spoon University’s “Chocolate Products You Need to Try” AND is scheduled for an upcoming appearance on HSN (Home Shopping Network) for the 2020 Holiday Season!
What makes their toffee so attention-getting? Comisky thinks it comes down to two things – their artisan’s commitment to care and an unwavering attention to quality.
“We took my grandmother’s toffee recipe, from which she created candies with love for family and friends, and created an updated version with ingredients diligently sourced from local artisans and entrepreneurs whenever possible,” Comisky said. “Now, our team of skilled candy makers create every batch by hand, with all-natural ingredients and an abundance of care. It’s a far cry from mass-produced chocolates – and we think you can taste the delicious difference in every bite.”
Amelia Toffee Company is known for producing innovative yet refined toffee flavors, including Sea Salt, Coffee, Orange, Bourbon, and Key Lime – with special limited-edition seasonal flavors like Cherry and Pumpkin. All of the toffee flavors combine ATC’s rich, buttery toffee base with an exciting flavor combination, and topped with delicious dark chocolate. ATC’s artisan candy makers create each flavor in small batches with care, so each batch is as delightfully decadent as the next. The company is also recognized as a leader in the shop small business movement, and is a dedicated supporter of helping local entrepreneurs find opportunities to work and grow together.
“We are honored and grateful for these amazing new opportunities to bring our piece of the First Coast to a wider audience,” Comisky added. “Hopefully, it helps not only to expand our company, but that it helps bring more attention to the amazing talents and products that all of our local small businesses have to offer.”
Amelia Toffee Company launched in 2015 with owner Anita Comisky’s family recipe as its foundation. Comisky experimented with thousands of recipe iterations and spent years refining it to perfection. She utilizes carefully selected ingredients, including premium dark chocolate and Florida sea salt to create unique candies with no extra colorings or preservatives. A hand-crafted, small-batch toffee maker, Amelia Toffee Company is sold in all Whole Foods stores in Florida, Harris Teeter in North Carolina and more than 300 stores nationally. Their toffee can also be purchased in 10 locations on Amelia Island, including the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, Amelia Island Museum of History. Toffee may also be purchased through their website, www.ameliatoffee.com. Their Amelia Island kitchen is open to the public for retail sales Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 9 am to noon.
