History of toffee

All of us have fond childhood memories of toffees and remember Sharp’s Toffee, Wilson’s Toffee, Sunrise Toffee to name but a few – but what is toffee and how old is this confectionery?

The process of making toffee requires the boiling of ingredients until the mix is stiff enough to be pulled into a shape which holds and has a glossy surface. The resulting mixture will typically be poured into a shallow tray and allowed to cool to form a sheet. Different mixes, processes, and most importantly, temperatures, will result in different textures and hardnesses, from soft and often sticky to a hard, brittle material. A brown colour and smoky taste is imparted to the toffee by the caramelization of the sugars called the Maillard Reaction.

The origin of the word is debatable – The Oxford English Dictionary dates the first publication of the word to 1825 and identifies it as a variation of taffy (1817), both of which are first recorded as English dialectical words. Some believe the word is derived from the word “tafia”, a West Indian rum, since cheap rum was once used to flavour candies.

Breads are baked freshly each day, charcuterie is sliced to order and hampers are assembled shortly before delivery.

We are a Cape Town based company and refuse to compromise on the freshness of the products you receive from us. We have decided to keep our distribution region within the geographical bounds of being able to ensure the quality we promise to you.

Due to the geographical size of South Africa, fresh food logistics can be complex. Many companies have mitigated the need for refrigerated vans and courier vehicles by adding secondary packaging in the form of insulating polystyrene and ice packs.

We refuse to take an approach that adds further pressure on our already strained planet and for this reason restrict our national offering to non-perishables only. 

Fear not though as you can still get a great taste of the Sol's experience as many of our non-perishable hampers are perfect for the home or great as gifts.
