Our Story


How It All Started

Eileen was born in the beautiful town of Camberly, Surrey, England. At the age of 30, while serving as in the Women’s Royal Navy (WRN) in the British Navy, she met my father Arthur Bauman who was serving in the US navy in Italy as admiral Hewitt’s personal photographer during World War II. With His permission they were married in Naples Italy, and came back to Washington state where she shared her Toffee with friends and neighbors during the holidays.

Family Tradition


Eileen’s English Toffee is created from an authentic family recipe, from Camberly, Surrey, England. What began as following in his mother’s footsteps by sharing her delicious authentic toffee to friends and family, has turned into a premiere toffee company in Richland, Michigan. Phillip and Lisa Bauman have been sharing their irresistible toffee all over the world.

In addition to their hand crafted toffee, they have expanded their product line to include decadent dark chocolate toffee brownies, and chewy and crunchy toffee cookies.
