Bliss Candy

Started with an old family recipe- like so many small businessess today, it grew from simply making toffee for friends. Bliss specializes in toffee, and has 3 flavors which are great sellers; almond, pecan, and white chocolate mocha. The almond is the best seller, being the standard toffee with the roasted almond flavor. Pecan is punched up with fresh orange zest added to the chocolate just prior to the final step. White chocolate mocha is made with coffee, white chocolate covers the candy, then cocoa powder, powdered sugar and a drizzle of dark chocolate finishes it. It’s better than a latte from your favorite coffee house!
Bliss can be found at Spec’s stores which have deli’s, Kroger in Clear Lake, the Heights and soon in the West University area, Bering’s hardware on Westheimer, The Whistle Stop Tea Room in Tomball, and various gift shops. Products in Houston, Corpus Christi, Austin, San Antonio, Killeen, Temple, Dallas and Plano. Call 281-222-2131 or blisscandycompany.com to place an order.
