In the traditional style of its eponymous isle, Mackinac Fudge Shop handcrafts an array of flavorful, preservative-free fudge daily using natural ingredients in a hammered copper kettle. The half-pound sweet slices come in more than 16 flavors, such as old-fashioned vanilla, chocolate peanut butter, maple pecan, and other well-loved veteran varieties. Blend these three classic flavors together in a custom box ($19.95) or nab a six-pack to satisfy even more late-night cravings ($35.95).
More adventurous mouths can revel in a gourmet three-pack full of cherry vanilla, mint chocolate chip, or caramel-and-pecan-swirled milk-chocolate turtle fudge, a favorite among both humans and reptiles ($23.95), or choose from a variety of non-fudge options. Once carefully packaged, the shop sends brave young treats far and wide to answer the call of mouthwatering duty at the doorsteps of customers, who can indulge without ever leaving the comfort of beloved footie pajamas.
Mackinac Fudge Shop
The family that owns Mackinac Fudge Shop rejects the standard assembly line, preferring to handcraft all of its fudge. They pour fresh, natural ingredients into a hammered copper kettle and then knead the warm batter to a silky texture atop a slab of italian marble, the same way Italians make pizza dough. The final product tastes of mint chocolate chip, maple pecan, or standard chocolate and vanilla, but never preservatives. Their gourmet truffles showcase a different manifestation of chocolaty goodness deemed “very soft, very smooth, moist, sticky, and utterly delicious” by chocablog. Even non-chocoholics find sweet sustenance in old-fashioned candies such as saltwater taffy and peanut brittle, or popcorn spiked with Michigan cherries and pecans.
