Toffee itself originated in Europe in the 1800s with the word appearing in the Oxford English Dictionary in 1825. Almond buttercrunch soon followed with commercial availability in the U.S. by the early 20th century. 

The crunchy confection gained immense popularity during World War II as it was easy to package and ship over to loved ones in Europe and the Pacific. The most popular brand of almond buttercrunch is made by Seattle's Brown & Haley called Almond Roca, originally introduced in 1923. 

So, whether you plan on grabbing a box of Almond Roca or trying your hand at making your own, don’t miss National Almond Buttercrunch Day on June 29th.
