English toffee from Morgan Price Candy Company in Decatur, Alabama, is on the list of “100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama Before You Die.” No wonder! The stuff is heavenly. What’s not to like about butter, sugar, chocolate and crushed almonds prepared precisely and perfectly?
I visited recently when expert candy-maker Annie was preparing several fresh batches. She knows the formula and turns out tray after tray of crunchy sweetness.
Morgan Price Candy Company has been serving Morgan County sweets-lovers for 32 years and has been in their present location on 6th Avenue (Highway 31 S) for about 3 years of that time. It’s a great store full of attractive gifts and, of course, candy-themed baskets and boxes.
Gelato was added to the summertime offerings a year or so ago and will continue to be made this year until the end of September. So, go quickly, while it’s sweltering outside and enjoy this creamy, cool treat.
I spied something new on the shelves — Ruby cocoa beans! I’m kicking myself for not trying it while I was there, but that gives me a great reason for a return visit.
For toffee, gelato or beautiful gifts, I highly recommend a trip to Morgan Price Candy Company. Please tell my friends Terry Mayfield and Linda Williams (who help make the magic happen) that I sent you.
