Terry's Toffee: Serving sweets at the Oscars for eight years

It's the biggest night in movies....and toffee?

Terry's Toffee will once again be an official sweet treat of the Academy Awards, featured as a special gift for celebrities hanging out in the green room and backstage.

Terry Opalek and his partner Michael Frontier are co-owners of the brand, which now sells its toffee in more than 80 stores around the country. It all happened about nine years ago, when Terry decided to leave his job and pursue a passion - bringing his Grandmother's toffee recipe to the world.

It started small, making and selling the sweet stuff out of their home. He reached out to the Oscars and asked them to taste it. They did, fell in love, and they've been successful since.

The toffee is really the star, though. They have 15 flavors of gourmet toffee - Lemon Paradise, Asian Accent, Chai-cago Spice, Cran-Orange Passion and more. They have a handful ready to sample in the store. You won't leave hungry.

I'll be featuring Terry's Toffee on tonight's WGN News at Five. Video will be here after. Here's how you can contact them.....
