Been hearing about this stuff since their first appearance on woot.wine years ago. Since I can't get it shipped to Poland, I got one for my sister, she is always nice to me and she and her husband a have a bit of a sweet tooth. I am pretty sure they will enjoy it.

My dogs like me, that is important.

Thank you winewoot for featuring our new Valentines tin! If anyone has any questions about it feel free to ask. My rhetorical question to you is, who wouldn't love some Brandini Toffee this Valentines Day?

A 2LB box on their web site is $43.95. Seems like a decent deal to me.

$34.99 + $5 shipping = $39.99

a $3.96 discount, plus waiting 2-3 weeks for Woot! to just ship it - does not seem like a good deal.

THIS OFFER back in October had 2lb of toffee AND 1lb of Toppers for the same price as this offer. That was a decent deal (but not great). This offer....well, it's what woot has become.

Filet mignon pricing for candy seems high to me, but I don't buy bulk candy often.....

the shipping price goes further when you add more things to your cart :P

but truthfully, I'm not one to spend $35 on a tin of toffee. it would sit around and I would beg anybody around to eat it. I'm passing on this as well.

This is good toffee and somehow the following song seems appropriate here:

This is the filet of candy...or the crack of the toffee world. All of the Brandini products are HAND CRAFTED.

For those wine wooter that visit the Palm Springs area. Stop by our store in Rancho Mirage for some great discounts for wine wooters.

The price difference is the cost of the tin.

There has been much discussion in the past about future offerings from Brandini. It was posted by several wine woot bloggers that they just wanted toffee, no Poopers, no Toppers.

What should the next offer be?

Scrap the tin, put it in a plastic bag, and slash the price. That special someone won't care what it's in once they taste it.

All true. I specifically asked for a 5 gallon bucket though, not a Valentines tin. I would lift my woot-azon boycott for a 5 gallon bucket.

Tough crowd....

Been there twice, informed the staff I'm a wine wooter and was treated like an old friend, love these guys (& Gals)

The crowd here does seem a bit grumpy today.
Perhaps those Christmas CC bills are arriving and piling up?

Great toffee, crack toffee as Klez said; start on it and you just can't stop gnawing on it.

Difficult price point, but comparable with other on-line offers.
You know Brandini is the first hit for "gourmet toffee"? Doing something right, thanks for dropping in today.

This is the best you've tasted and it's definitely worth it. Plus IT KEEPS A LONG TIME IN THE FREEZER!

I'll take 5 lbs of your Toffee in a Feed Bag. Skip the packaging, as it just delays the pleasure.

Seriously, this is the real deal when it comes to toffee.

Wine George has to be credited for find Brandini 6 years ago at the NASFT Fancy Food Show...But the wine woot family has really helped spread the word...BEST FANS EVER!

Still doing the R&D on the 5 gallon bucket of Brandini. Will put together one for our monthly Facebook contest winner

This toffee is seriously delicious. I don't think any of the complainers, me included, would disagree. I'm not thrilled about the deal this time. Like North, the expensive tin can be bought for $0.99 although not as nice. But that doesn't change the fact that this stuff is delicious.

Haha, pretty close! Valentine's Day coming up, taxes coming up, trying to lose the holiday weight I put on :P For ME it's bad timing I think if it were a smaller packaging (half as much) I would've had my arm twisted enough to take the plunge
