Many people ask us “why the name Walker’s Nonsuch?” It’s something of a family legend that when our founder Edward Joseph was establishing the company, he wanted a distinctive brand name to stand out from his competitors and describe the quality of his toffee.

He happened upon the story of Nonsuch Palace, the grandest of all palaces built by Henry VIII between 1538 and 1546. Its very name a boast that nowhere else could compete with its exquisite splendour. A palace of all palaces, there was ‘nonsuch’ like it – just like Great Grandad’s special toffee.

There’s ‘nonsuch’ toffee like Walker’s Toffee!
