Discover the rich melt-in-your-mouth caramel taste of farm butter. This Classic Toffee pays homage to the work of Darling’s Tannie Evita Bezuidenhout.
Darling Sweet firmly believes in being involved in and supporting the Darling community and this is done mainly, but not only, through supporting The Darling Trust. The Darling Trust is a charitable trust set up by Pieter Dirk Uys that assists the Darling community by empowering individuals to help themselves, mainly through participation in the sectors of education, skills development and health. Apart from raising awareness of this trust through marketing activities, Darling Sweet also contribute financially by donating part of the proceeds of the sales of Tannie Evita’s Classic Toffee to The Darling Trust.
Darling Sweet came into existence when Frits van Ryneveld and Hentie van der Merwe met in September 2013 and decided to combine their passion for art and food, and love for quality and design, starting a toffee factory in Darling. Their idea was to produce a range of high-quality toffees that are handcrafted using traditional methods and with no artificial colorants, flavorings or preservatives added. Furthermore, to produce a range of toffee flavors that are unique to Darling and its surrounds, using as many locally sourced ingredients as possible.
In July 2014, they converted Frits’ 24m2 antique shop into a production kitchen and employed their first two members of staff. Since then Darling Sweet has grown at a remarkable pace. They now employ 24 full time members of staff, produce their toffee products in an architectural landmark of Darling and have become a top tourist spot in the quaint town.
