Fraser Valley Gourmet's coveted Almond Butter Crunch candy is made by hand, in small batches. They use only the freshest ingredients and absolutely no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Their slow, careful process takes creamy butter and accents it with toasted almonds and rich chocolate, resulting in a soft-crunch texture that bursts with fabulous toffee flavor in each bite. Fraser Valley Gourmet was founded in 2006, when Katherine Geiger finally allowed herself to be convinced that people were going nuts over the Almond Butter Crunch candy she'd been making as Christmas gifts for 15 years. It began leaping off trade show tables immediately, and can now be found doing much the same at various shops in the Vancouver area.
One bite, and you'll be doing what we've come to call "the body melt thing," closing your eyes and relaxing as though enjoying a massage. It really is that good.
