Biggie's Crack Toffee
Every Person in New York

Most toffees are too much of a good thing. You get the dopamine rush from the caramelized sugar, the crunch, the salt and it's back for more. And then it's diminishing returns: too sweet, too sticky, over and out.

Biggie's Crack Toffee, made in NYC, tweaks the formula, making toffee that's dangerously delicious.

It's not too sweet. Biggie's comes in various flavors, using different tricks to balance out the sweetness. Depending on the variety, you'll find sea salt, tart cranberries, warm chili pepper or bitter espresso powder outflanking your better judgment.

The toffee is thin. Your teeth don't get stuck in the middle of a chunk. It's all crunch. It's all good. You have been warned.

Biggie's is available at Taste NY in Grand Central and online.
