Edgar Allan Poe's best-known young-adult novel, Fudge-a-Mania, tells the harrowing story of a young man kidnapped by his own obsession with thick, hand-churned chocolate. Free his long-trapped snacking spirit with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of fudge from Swiss Maid Fudge’s online shop.
A family-owned-and-operated business established in 1962, Swiss Maid employs time-honored European methods of copper-kettle candy-making, using 100% Wisconsin sweet-cream butter, heavy cream, and pure chocolate and vanilla. After putting on your decision-making fedora, choose from a large selection of fudge flavors, including maple, amaretto marble, cookies and cream, cranberry walnut, and classic dark or milk chocolate ($14.98 per lb.). Though it's a proven fact that all dads love the phrase "Or I'll eat my tie!", chocolate peppermint-stick fudge proves to be a much tastier snacking option and a better holiday gift.
Many of Swiss Maid's fudge-frenzied customers have been returning since childhood, and now that the shop has joined forces with the Internet, virtual children all over the nation can enjoy the same quality treats as their real-life predecessors. For freshness, Swiss Maid ships fudge right after it is made.
