LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –
A Las Vegas mom is keeping her son’s memory alive, one sweet treat at a time.
Suni Erlanger was devastated when she got the call one year ago that her son, Doug Green, had been killed while serving in Afghanistan.
Growing up, Doug loved his mother’s homemade toffee and often requested it be sent overseas so he could share it with fellow troops.
While mourning the tragic loss of Doug, Suni poured her efforts into that sweet treat.
She made it her mission to share the toffee that her son loved so much with the rest of the world, while honoring his memory.
It ultimately lead to a partnership with business partner Julie Littman and Whoa! Toffee was born. Part of the proceeds of Whoa! Toffee go to the Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation.
The delicious buttery chocolate treat is made in Las Vegas and is available at WhoaFoods.com
