Want a little Jack Daniel’s with that toffee? Well, say no more. From Miami-based Mermaid Sea Salt Toffee comes sweet — sometimes spiked, but always clever — toffee treats. What starts as an organic, buttery blend of goodness is pimped out with ingredients from curry powder and fennel seeds to rum and Baileys Irish Cream.

A sprinkling of crystallized ginger, melted chocolate, or sea salt often find their way on the final product, which is then lovingly packaged in that oh-so-artisanal way. Mermaid Sea Salt Toffee can be bought in Miami pre-made or, if you’re feeling adventurous, custom-order to make your own spiked, spiced sweetie from the sea.
