Thornton's does not use emulsifiers or stabilisers in it's toffees. This is intregral to the toffee taste, texture and flavour and is the reason why the toffee clumps together. To enjoy Special Toffee at it's best, tap the bag firmly prior to opening to seperate. I have found that when sampling this licorice out I need to have smaller bits, so I can tell you with confidence that you can use a hammer on this bag and it will stay intact!
The Gluten Free recipe is also suitable for vegetarians. The ingredients are as follows: Sugar, Glucose Syrup, Sweetened Condensed Milk (whole milk, sugar), Vegetable oil, Butter, Dried Liquorice (1.5%), Natural Colour (Vegetable Carbon), Partially inverted Sugar Syrup, Humectant (Sorbitol), Salt, Natural Flavoring.
