Almond Roca is a brand of chocolate toffee butter crunch candy containing a ground almond coating and also almond chunks inside the candy itself. It is similar, if not identical, to English Toffee. It is made by the Brown & Haley Co. of Tacoma, Washington.
Almond Roca was invented in 1923 by Harry Brown and J. C. Haley, founders of Brown & Haley. The candy’s name is said to have been inspired by a local librarian, who chose the Spanish word “roca”, meaning “rock” in English, to describe the hard, log-shaped confection
Almond Roca contains sugar, almonds, butter (cream (milk) and salt), vegetable oil (coconut and/or palm oil), partially hydrogenated cottonseed and soybean oils, cocoa powder, whey (milk), non-fat dry milk powder, soya lecithin, chocolate, cocoa butter, and vanilla.
