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.
