Wow! I think just scored more than the Buffalo Bills, which is really not that hard to do…but I digress. This week I purchased my first package (well, actually FIVE for friends and family…) at a Rexall Drug Store in Niagara Falls, ONT. The Sales Clerk observed that many other happy customers were walking out with a similar classic Tartan plaid package all week. Kinda’ hard to explain why a candy giant like Nestle Canada would ignore the large Big Box stores with higher sales volumes – but who can argue with the Sharp #2 Pencils boys back in corporate.
Pricing seems to be a bit aggressive at $7.00 for box of 4 bars – I hope they are not trying to take advantage of all of those Boomers with fading memories. Remember your first girlfriend? Probably. How about your first kiss? Most definitely. But do YOU really remember your first Nestle Mack Toffee Bar? Probably not! And that is what I mean when I say Nestle is bringing back those “sweet toffee memories” from the past. I plan of putting aside my box of Mack Toffee bars until T-Day. What better gift to share at a Holiday dinner table than pieces of dee-licious Nestle toffee that came from a Smacked Mack. I just hope to remember my toffee bars in my fridge the night before. Right next to Tom Turkey who may weigh in at 25 pounds or more!
Enjoy the upcoming Holidays – but enjoy your Nestle Mackintosh Toffee bars even more!
