Vintage Almond Roca Tin
21 oz ALMOND ROCA Tin by Brown & Haley. Almond Crunch. Harry Brown developed a recipe for the crunchy log-shaped candy and J.C. Haley wanted an unusual name to go with the newly invented almond confection. A local librarian suggested "roca", and ALMOND ROCA buttercrunch toffee was born. In Spanish, the word "roca" means "rock", which seemed appropriate given the crunchy center. In 1927 ALMOND ROCA confection became the first candy in the world to be put in a sealed tin (and a pink one at that).
