Best Mail Order Fudge for Holidays????

  • c

I would like to find the BEST, REAL, fudge for gifts this year.

When I was a kid in Laguna Beach, there was a tiny shop run by a couple who made ONLY fudge and toffee. The tiny place barely had room to turn around, and was dominated by a massive gleaming copper kettle. The walls were covered with the names of towns they had shipped their lovingly made product to.

Please help me find a similar product, it must exist out there!

By real I mean the kind that is made with just cocoa,sugar and butter, ( walnuts ok but NOTHING else) cooked in a big copper pot and creamed on a slab of marble.

Please none of those mix in, peanut butter, marshmallow,what ever type specialty fudges...
just the real deal....

possibly made by Nuns or in a little shop in Wisconsin peninsula, or any other establishment that has been around forever and remembers how real fudge is made...

Thanks !!!!!!!!!!!

  1. The Brigittine monks from Amity, Oregon make absolutely delicious fudge. Here's the link:


    1. This is the best stuff I've ever tasted (fudge-wise) and I come from a land where fudge is a huge commodity (Northern Michigan). The caramels are amazing too.


      1. I love the fudge from Murdicks though I can only attest to eating direct from the shops on the Vineyard. The traditional chocolate fudge is wonderful very rich and true chocolate flavor. I think their penuche is some of the best I have ever had. The cap cod cranberry is good for what it is. My husband loves their peanut butter fudge but I find it sandy and a bit dry.

        The link takes you to Vineyard site but if you click on their homepage you can link to the one on Mackinac Island,MI


        1. You might try the Fudge Fatale from (linked below).


          1. Thank you for the great suggestions....will have to order some of each for a taste *test* before subjecting my giftees...yumm
