Toffee Nosed

Posted by Steve E on June 27, 2005

I was watching a television show (in the US) the other night. The program was produced in the UK. A couple were talking about a woman neighbor who suffered a slight but public embarrasment or humiliation of some kind. They said that "She got all toffee nosed about it." What does 'toffee nosed' mean and how did it originate?
