Oprah Chose Toffee to Go!
"Buttery, crunchy and coated with scrumptious combinations of chocolate and nuts—white with macadamia, dark with pecan and milk with almond—these handmade treats from a family recipe are toffee at its most delectable."
2013 List of Oprah's Favorite Things
Tampa, FL - November 5, 2013 - Lisa Schalk is still pinching herself! Several weeks ago, Lisa and her husband Jim Schalk, received word their Tampa based company, Toffee to Go, was being considered for Oprah’s 2013 Favorite Things. Fast forward a few weeks and they got the exciting news, Toffee to Go was chosen to be on this year’s list of Oprah’s Favorite Things in the December 2013 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine!
Ecstatic cannot even begin to describe how Lisa and Jim felt when they received the news. “When we started Toffee to Go 11 years ago, I remember hoping that someday Oprah would taste our toffee. I knew if she tasted it, she would love it!” Lisa taped the O-List to her office wall each year, visualizing the day she would see Toffee to Go on the list… that day is finally here! Right now Lisa and Jim are bracing for the “Oprah Effect” at Toffee to Go by doubling their staff, increasing phone lines, beefing up their website and cooking their amazing toffee around the clock. It’s going to be a wild ride, but for Lisa and Jim Schalk, it’s a dream come true.
