A hard brittle toffee, similar to both Butterscotch & Barley Sugar, slightly flavoured with lemon.
Farrah's of Harrogate tell us that The 'Original Harrogate Toffee' was first produced in 1840 by John Farrah, it being designed to clear the palate of the putrid taste of Harrogate's Sulphur Water, famous in the 19th century for it's healing properties.

Farrah's Harrogate Toffee is still made in copper pans and packaged in distinctive Blue and Silver Embossed Tins which form, apparently, a memorable gift for all occasions.
