Lauren's grandmother (Shirley Jones) taught her to make the family's signature toffee recipe. Lauren is still making the traditional Jones Toffee to share with you, which is available on our "Toffees" page.
Ben + Lauren

Lauren + Nigella Lawson
In 2012, Lauren went on one of the most exciting adventures of her life and auditioned for ABC's "The Taste." She baked a simple chocolate cake, and served it with a fun spin on her grandmothers traditional toffee: Pistachio Brittle with Cayenne Pepper and Sesame Seeds. Among thousands, Lauren's dish was chosen by Nigella Lawson to compete on "The Taste."
To provide the best-tasting, highest-quality toffees possible. We believe in making the best because the best is worth sharing.
Lauren's Winner on "The Taste"
Lauren's pistachio brittle + flourless chocolate cake. As the youngest contestant on the show, Lauren eventually landed herself a spot in the semi-finals, where she finished in 4th place. Fans from across the globe have asked for Lauren's signature pistachio brittle, which is coming soon to share with you. Our delicious pistachio brittle will be available soon on our "shop" page.
We work hard to source the finest quality ingredients to bring you the best tasting toffee. We source local whenever possible, and we love working with other small businesses. All our toffees are all natural, gluten free, and handmade with love.
We love searching for new ingredients to include in our toffees and other creations. We will always carry Grandma Jones' Classic Toffee, but we like to play with new, exciting combinations.
Chocolate happens to be one of our favorite things, and we know our customers feel the same way. We are on a continuous search to source the best chocolate, because quality chocolate makes for quality toffee.
All our pecans are grown here in Mississippi. We enjoy working with both Indianola Pecan Company and Duke Pecan Company. You don't know what you're missing until you get your hands on some fresh, Mississippi-grown pecans.
One of the ingredients that sets Jones Toffee apart is our use of real maple syrup. All of our Pure Maple Syrup comes from Patterson Farms in Sabinsville Pennsylvania. This company has been family-owned for 3 generations, and produces some of the finest maple products in the US.
