Tregroes Toffee Waffles Review
|Having worked for the London branch of a Dutch bank for many years, I became addicted to 'siroopwaffalen' (I believe thy're called) on my business trips to Amsterdam.|
Recently, I found that the London Wall branch of the sandwich bar Pret a Manger has started to stock the Syrup waffles, albeit at an extortionate price.
However, when you have the uncontrollable desire for a toffee waffle (placed over the top of your cup of tea for a few minutes, to warm and slightly melt to toffee filling), then any price is worth paying.
You may like to have a look at www.woolworths.co.nz (Woolworths being one of the supermarkets here in NZ) .. You will see that there a currently 5 varieties of Toffee Pop's on the market..
griffins biscuits toffee pop choc 200G $2.99
griffins biscuits toffee pop snow 190G $3.19
griffins biscuits toffee pops dark 200G $2.99
griffins biscuits toffee pop extreme 190G $3.19
griffins biscuits mint toffee pops 200G $2.99
Long time no speak. I can inform your reader Emma that the toffee pop is to be found alive and well in my local Spar, do they have Spar's in Taiwan?? I still buy them regularly, partly because they're great and partly because you get a miserly 8 in a pack so frequent purchases are inevitably necessary.
Tregroes Toffee Waffles Review
|Living only 15 miles from Llandysul we're haunted by these waffles (in the nicest possibly way because they are delicious) we can even get them in Spar and SMALL local newsagents and even in the canteen in college.|
When I was in Llandysul Secondary school one of my friends in my year was the daughter of the person who owned the waffle factory (which meant lots of free waffles :-> ) Being from Holland they even once translated a letter for us that we got sent from the Police out there after my bike was stolen.
I didnt think that these marvelous waffles had even made it past the welsh border let alone be for sale in some of the expensive shops in london. Anyways. I just thought i would mention my encounter with these waffles and the people who own the factory.
||My husband and I were reminiscing about a rather natty little biscuit called a toffee pop. Quite small, round and packaged in a similar fashion to a jammy dodgem, they were made up of a biscuity base, an absolutely MENTAL toffee filling and a chocolate topping. Quite awesome and super after an afternoon at the Bristol North Baths.|
We are currently living in Taiwan and therefore unable to conduct a proper search, but are anxious to know whether they can still be found.
|Nicey replies: Well they were made by Burton's but I haven't seen any in ages, 3 to 4 years I think. As you say they were a very close cousin of the Jammie Dodger, and yet another of those 'glam rock' sort of biscuits that Burton's are the undisputed masters of.
Its so happens that there is one place in the world where the Toffee Pop still makes a decent living and that is New Zealand. The NZ biscuit bakers Griffins produce them and there is also a white chocolate variant called the Snow Toffee pop. Biscuit Hunter Hazel brought me back a pack of the little know Snow Toffee pops but they are in fairly bad shape having been round most of the antipodes in a rucksack. I managed to get hold of the Milk Chocolate variety on Monday in the NZ shop in Covent Garden.
