I randomly picked up this bag of Edward Marc Chocolate Toffee Covered Almonds from Costco because they are new and they look pretty darn tasty. I was not prepared for how good these turned out to be. I have to get another bag ASAP because my husband basically ate the bag over one weekend. These are the kind of chocolates where you keep saying “okay one more”, then proceed to eat 10 and repeat “okay one more”.
Edward Marc Chocolatier is a family-owned business and they use sustainably-sourced cocoa. I reached out to the company on Instagram to ensure these were available in all of Western Canada. I confirmed they are and no, I was not offered a free bag (I wish!). Anyway, I knew I needed to review them immediately because you know Costco, here one day gone the next, and chocolate lovers won’t want to miss out on these!
Costco Edward Marc Milk Chocolate Toffee Covered Almonds Nutrition
These are not a health food, but they will definitely induce some good feelings when you eat them because they’re super delicious. They’re high in both sugar and fat. Eight of these contains 210 calories, 13 grams of fat and 20 grams of sugar. The high fat is due to the fact there’s a pretty good-sized roasted almond surrounded by delicious milk chocolate and toffee. Bonus points for the fact that they do not have any artificial flavors or preservatives.

These taste so very good, I can’t even tell you. I find them quite different than other chocolate-covered almonds. The chocolate on the outside is not the super shiny, smooth chocolate; it appears to be more of a thick cocoa finish. This somehow makes them taste more decadent, like they are truffles from a specialty chocolate shop. Under the rich milk chocolate there is a substantially-sized roasted almond coated in toffee. When I first bought these, I pictured them maybe having a chewy toffee center but they are more like a crunchy roasted almond that has been candied with toffee. They’re not overly sweet and are super satisfying, especially if you like chocolate covered nuts.
I purchased these for $13.79 Canadian which I don’t think is bad at all for a 680 gram bag of chocolate-covered almonds that taste like they came straight from a high-end chocolate shop. I feel completely fine spending $14 on these when I think about how many times I’ve bought those small boxes of chocolate-covered almonds (usually for a fundraiser) for $5 to $10 each with chocolates that are not near the same quality as these and don’t taste nearly as good.
They come in a re-sealable bag with an expiry date of about a year after purchase. We live in a really warm apartment and I decided to keep them in the fridge to maintain freshness and prevent them from melting; I have to say I think they taste even better right from the fridge, cold. Try it and let me know. Basically these are as convenient as a product comes.
Overall, I would purchase these again in a heartbeat. I know if I brought a bag to work they’d be gone by 10am. I hope Costco carries these around the Christmas season because they’d be great to put out for company or just to enjoy while watching Christmas movies. I could also see baking fancy cookies with these!
Nutrition: 2/10 (I’m giving points for the almonds)
