Big Al's Best was started by Joanna Jaeger to create an opportunity for her son, Alex, to have meaningful work and activities to fill his adult life. Alex is a young man with autism who makes delicious toffee and creates greeting cards and artwork that features his beautiful calligraphy.
Our first product, Dark Chocolate Almond Toffee is made in our home kitchen under our Cottage Food Operation (CFO) license #PT0485292 Santa Clara County. It is ONLY available for in person purchase in the San Francisco Bay Area as we are unable to ship this product.
Alex has always had beautiful printing so we decided to expand our products to include greeting cards and art work in addition to the toffee, that features his beautiful calligraphy.
One of the most important parts of this venture is the opportunity it gives us to connect to our community and share Alex's talents. We have partnered with over a dozen local shops who carry the cards and art work.

Literally the best toffee I've ever had, I'm a nurse and brought in some for my co-workers and everyone can't stop raving about it! Can't wait for the next order!
I didn't know I loved toffee until I tried 'Big Al's Best' toffee. I ordered most of the toffee to share with family and coworkers, but I ended up consuming half of what I ordered. Delicious toffee with wholesome ingredients - no additives and preservatives. Good thing it's a local business and they deliver to my home in SF. I will definitely be ordering another batch soon!
Yes! Yes! Yes!
So, I'm not a big dark chocolate fan. But when a neighbor posted some information about this toffee, I thought, "well it's for a GREAT cause". So I bought two boxes. That was last night. This is today....today is a sad day as there is no more toffee left! Holy moly! I'm actually in "the candy business" and have become a fan of Estroms from Colorado. Never again!!!! Big Al's are amaaaaazing little nuggets of love! Try it - you will not be disappointed!
Thank you Al for sharing your amazing gift with us!
