fudge

You might think that owning and operating a candy store is the stuff dreams are made of, but it's not all fun and games. Every once in a while, we have to do the hard stuff, like recipe testing, product sampling and food & beverage pairings. But we are willing to sacrifice for it.

Made onsite in our own kitchen, our Copper Kettle Maple or Maple Nut Fudge is crafted with pure local maple syrup, butter and cream. Just a warning, after you Savour this fudge and you will measure all other fudge against it for the rest of your life! It's that good.

We love what we do and we especially love the joy that our products have given you and millions of others over the years. We feel we are also in the business of putting smiles on people's faces!
