Creamsicle Fudge: A Favorite for Summertime

May 20, 2017

As the weather warms up, it's interesting to see how tastes in fudges changes from the popular dark chocolate fudge with walnuts to something a little lighter. Creamsicle fudge brings back memories of childhood. Remember when you could hear the music of the ice cream truck before you could see it, and you hoped it was going to turn down your street? Well, I do! My brothers and I would race to the edge of the lawn with our money in hand debating what treat we would try. More often than not, we'd decide on a creamsicle bar. I am amazed at how much Papa Dave's Homemade Creamsicle Fudge brings back those memories every time I sneak a bite!  ... Read more

Chocolate Fudge or Vanilla Fudge...that's the question!

July 21, 2016

We have created several new fudge flavors over the years, but none have been more popular, and developed more of a cult-like following than our Sea Salt Caramel Fudge. Picture our signature vanilla fudge with ribbons of caramel spread throughout and a sprinkle of sea salt on top. It became a number one seller almost immediately. We wondered, was there anyway to top it? Well, the chocolate lovers in the group had the answer, and Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Fudge was born. Rich, dark chocolate fudge took the place of the vanilla, but the same gooey caramel ribbons still streaked through, and the sea salt sprinkles complemented everything beautifully.  Now the question became which one will our customers like the...
