Our Trail-Mix Tennessee Toffee is made by slow cooking Grade AA butter and pure cane sugar until that perfect golden color is achieved, then by folding in fresh roasted pecans, almonds, peanuts and sunflower seeds, along with dried cherries and raisins. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS.
As a part of of 5-year celebration, I am bringing back some of my favorite products that have graced the shelves of RLC over the years. When I first opened, I carried these handmade caramels from Memphis' Shotwell Candy Company. Owned by Jerrod Smith, a corporate attorney, he would make them after work (and his three daughters were asleep) every night in a big copper pot in their home kitchen (roughly 9pm - 2am). Each piece was hand-cut and wrapped in brown wax paper. And each piece tastes like a little bit of heaven. In the subsequent five years, the company has grown. I was one of only a handful of businesses carrying the product, but now Shotwell (named after his great-grandfather, L. Shotwell George) is well-known around the south, even raking in accolades from such names as Garden & Gun (2015 Made in the South Award runner up), Real Simple, Southern Living (2015 Southern Living Food Award for Best Sweet), Fine Cooking, Grub Street and even Entertainment Weekly.
