Darling Sweet

Darling Sweet

Watch the Darling Sweet team lovingly produce the most delectable old fashioned quality handcrafted toffee and toffee spreads at their beautiful premises that originally housed Darling’s General Dealer Store – which was known as Retief se Winkel and built around the turn of the 20th century.

Darling Sweet came into existence in late 2013 when Hentie van der Merwe and Frits van Ryneveld decided to start a toffee company in their hometown Darling.

Their toffees are preservative free – and they add no synthetic flavourants – creating a real old fashioned ‘clean label’ butter toffee – and probably one of the healthiest toffees on the market!

Their products are Kosher certified (except for their wines toffees).

Darling Sweet also sells raw veld flower honey from the cape coastal region as well as their popular West Coast Fleur de Sel.

The team is very proud of their recyclable packaging, and that their toffee wrappers are biodegradable.
Darling Sweet’s handcrafted process ensures a top-quality product, but also coincides with Frits and Hentie’s focus on job creation and skills and career development for the Darling community.

The Toffee Gallery – Darling’s own contemporary art space is housed within their building with exhibitions of South Africa’s top artists. To be added to the mailing list of upcoming shows please mail curator@thetoffeegallery.co.za
The premises is wheel-chair as well as child-friendly.
