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.

  1. this is the best fudge i've ever had. You can order form the website http://www.sanderscandy.com/

    1. 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!

        I'm another former Detroiter and haven't had Sander's for a couple of years. it is the best hot fudge! I can't wait to order some.
        thanks for the memories!

      2. 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.

          When you go to www.sanderscandy.com, you can put in your zip code and find all the local stores that carry it. ACO hardware stores carries it for $5.99 (the cheapest of all the stores) and routinely goes on sale for $3.99, but their is usually a limit.

            Which page has the local stores? I coudn't find it. Btw, the link above doesn't work on my browser. Just erase the comma at the end, and you'll get through.

              I found the page where you can search for stores. It's not where you'd expect. But a search in this area only yielded a caterer in Shirlington. I doubt that you could walk in there and buy a bottle of the sauce.

              Try it yourself:

          1. 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?
