Dave’s Sweet Tooth – Toffee Addicts Toffee
Dave’s Sweet Tooth should come with a warning, “open and consume at your own risk”. The risk of course is finishing a jar or a bag in one sitting! It’s not your grandma’s toffee that got stuck in your teeth as a kid, and it’s not English toffee so hard it’ll crack a molar. So don’t say we didn’t warn you before you become another “toffee addict” always looking for a toffee fix. We met up with the owner of D.S.T. for a quick convo on what makes the toffee world go round.
Tell us a little about yourself and the company you own/run
My dad, Dave, is a retired Detroit Firefighter. About 8 years ago, he started making toffee around the holidays for family and friends, and packaging it in a Ball mason jar. After a while, I noticed that people were starting to call the house and order it by the case at all different times of the year. About 3 years ago I decided to start a business with the recipe, and Dave’s Sweet Tooth was born. We now make 6 different varieties of toffee, and can be found in over 100 stores throughout Michigan.
What is your location and when did you start/how long has the company been in business
We package and produce and package all of our products by hand the old fashioned way at our facility in Harrison Township, Michigan. The company was established in 2010.
What makes your products special/unique
Traditional English toffee is very brittle and has a tendency to stick in your teeth for hours afterwards. Our toffee still has the snap of an English toffee, but it immediately begins to melt in your mouth and will not stick to your teeth. Even those who do not usually like toffee, can’t seem to get enough of Dave’s Sweet Tooth.
In addition, our unique mason jar packaging adds a little something extra to the product, making it the perfect gift for any occasion.
What’s your favorite part about your job
I love meeting new people, and seeing their reaction when trying our product for the first time. I used to wait tables and do other odd jobs back in high school and college. In these other lines of work, I only received feedback on what I was doing when something went wrong, and it was usually negative in nature. These days, my job is filled entirely with positive/constructive feedback and it definitely makes my work that much more fulfilling.
Where can we buy more of your products
We have quite a few locations listed on our website, and you can always order online at www.davessweettooth.com.
What’s the best way to enjoy/eat/prepare/utilize your product
Our toffee makes a great topping for ice cream, cupcakes, and pies, but I think it’s best right out of the jar.
