In 2002, after many months of journaling based on the course, The Artist's Way, Terry felt a strong urge to make his Grandmother McCall's toffee, having made the toffee with his Aunt Jenne Louise a few years earlier. Making it for the Holidays and sharing it with others...soon, countless friends and loved ones were requesting more and more toffee. Terry and his partner Michael realized that they were onto something important.
Grandma's recipe became the basis for McCall's Classic. However, having traveled extensively Terry was drawn to the tastes and textures of other cultures. He was inspired to infuse ingredients never before joined with toffee; flavors such as chai spices, French lavender, Madagascar vanilla, Australian ginger and crushed wasabi peas have absolutely transformed toffee.
Following their intuition, Terry and Michael opened their Chicago Toffee Shop in 2005.
In a few fast years much has happened. Terry's Toffee is now enjoyed around the world. It has received countless honors and awards and is a special treat at the Academy Awards since 2005.®
Our mission is to continue to make the best toffee for the world to enjoy!
