I apologize if I missed a thread on this, but my search gave me nothing! I'd like to pick up some fudge for a gift for a discerning lover of fudge. I'd prefer recommendations on the westside but I'm willing to travel. Thanks!

      Littlejohn's at the Farmers' Market. Chocolate, divinity, and maybe maple. Just great fudge, nothing silly.

            I've had it from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory over in Marina Del Rey and thought it was very good. They are in the same mall as Nichols Restaurant (and are over in the corner where Aunt Kizzy's used to be and Panini Coffee & Cafe still is).

              Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory has several locations around, including one in the Camarillo Outlet Mall spread. While I don't think it is amazing, I agree with you, Servorg, that it is pretty good.

              For me, the freshness factor is key; if you can find it freshly made at Rocky Mountain, it is probably as good as any other fudge in the LA area. Otherwise, as GK in SO recommends, one will have to go elsewhere to get the good stuff.

                Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory ( www.rmcf.com ) sells my favorite mass-produced fudge, and I used it to create an unusual presentation of RMCF candies at Thanksgiving. First, I made a pie crust from Italian macaroon crumbs and covered it with a thin layer of RMCF fudge (spreadable with a little effort and care when really fresh). Then, I arranged naked RMCF creams, cherry cordials, and chocolate-covered jellies on top of the fudge. It went over quite well with my family, especially those who somehow got the idea that I had made the fudge myself. ;-)
