In October B. toffee celebrated its 10th Anniversary!
Founder Betsy Thagard launched B. toffee in October of 2009, and the company has been growing continuously ever since. To celebrate the company’s 10th anniversary, B. toffee and A Market collaborated on creating a specialty anniversary toffee cookie and ice cream sandwich. The ice cream sandwich is comprised of B. Bits in both the cookies and ice cream, and then rolled in toffee bits again. It’s truly toffee heaven!
A Market’s mission to inspire the local community with a spectacular experience through their food, passion and culture inspired Thagard as she began to pave her way in the confection industry. Their similar passion’s drove Thagard to reach out to A Market in hopes to collaborate. A Market became B. toffee’s first client, and remains a valued client today, truly coming full circle ten years later.
Giving back to local charities and nonprofit organizations through our B. Giving Initiative is of high importance to both Thagard and the B. toffee team. While we support a large variety of causes in hopes to make the world a better place, The Alzheimer’s Association is an organization the B. toffee team holds a little nearer to our hearts. Thagard’s late father, Dr. Robert (Bob) Stevenson suffered from Alzheimer’s disease and chose to donate his brain to science to further research with hopes to find a cure. B. toffee is a proud sponsor of the Alzheimer’s Association and recently participated in the Walk to End Alzheimers at the Great Park in Irvine. The B. toffee team worked to spread awareness, raise funds, and remember Bob. On behalf of Thagards father, a portion of the anniversary recipe proceeds at A Market will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association as we work to continue to give back and support important causes.
Thus far, the Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich has been a huge success, so we are extending it’s stay until the end of the year. If you haven’t tried it, make sure to head over to A. Market on Coast Hwy and grab this delicious dessert before the year ends! Purchasing the Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich is also a great way to give back to a wonderful organization this holiday season and enjoy a fun treat with loved ones.
Come out to A Market in Newport Beach and celebrate with us, and happy holidays!
