Sanders hot fudge; Detroit
I am originally from Michigan and grew up with Sanders hot fudge. I know the company still exists in Detroit but can anyone help with a location where I can buy it locally in the DC/Baltimore area. At one time Safeway carried their products including cakes but that era is long gone. I have a relative in this week from out of town and we both are wishing for a sweet tast from our past.
You're right, it is the best fudge in the world. Harrod's in London carries it, and they only have the best. I recall seeing Sander's fudge in a place like Dean & Deluca in Georgetown at one point or it could have been Berlucchi's. Your best bet would to call around to local gourmet stores or call/email the company directly about retail shops in the area. Why don't you order it online?
Yep -- I've seen it online but not locally. I'm another Detroiter and Sanders fan, but I think my most vivid Sanders memory is of getting water in the cone-shaped paper cups in fancy holders.

I too grew up with Sanders Hot Fudge, ah memories! I have never seen it here in the 10 years I have lived in DC. All of the Sander's stores I knew of in MI had closed but they opened one by my fathers house last year, so I snagged a jar in December and again last month. I would recommend ordering it online, it is as good as you remember!
