A colleague of mine has just had to book an sudden appointment with his dentist first thing tomorrow morning. He just bit into a Connemara Kitchen® Traditional Toffee and pulled a crown off.

The Plain People of Ireland: Connemara Kitchen®? So this would be a Traditional Irish Toffee, would it?

It would indeed.

TPPoI: And would this toffee have been bought by someone in Ireland itself.

That would be the case.

TPPoI: Perhaps by someone who was returning from a trip to our Isle, and who wished to bring his colleagues a taste of our fair country?

That would be quite likely, yes.

TPPoI: And the timing, sir. If these toffees didn't appear till today, then presumably the person would have still been away yesterday.

That sounds plausible.

TPPoI: So tell me: when were you this time yesterday?

Why, we'd just taken off from Dublin airport.

(With apologies to Myles na Gopaleen, whom it is time to reread.)
