Mackinac Island Fudge – The Best Fudge on Earth

While fudge was not invented on Mackinac Island, it most certainly – and most deliciously – was perfected here.

For over a century a distinguished line of candy makers on Mackinac Island have worked their magic on marble slabs and created a treat so sweet and creamy that it embodies the essence of bliss.

An enthusiastic fan recently posted on our facebook page: “the fudge from Mackinac Island is the Best Fudge on Earth“. We agree.

Mackinac island has an abundance of fudge shops that share the tradition of making delectable fudge and other sweet treats. Murdick’s Fudge… Joann’s Fudge.. Ryba’s Fudge Shops… May’s Candy Shop… Murray Hotel Fudge Shop..

Instagram post 17870035991014916 What is Mackinac Island’s biggest export?
—
Mackinac Island is iconic for its Victorian houses, horse drawn carts and bicycles. But what really makes the island tick, drives its economy and has secured its place in Michigan tourism, is the fudge.
—
This island, with only 500 residents, is home to more than a dozen fudge shops ready to serve the 1 million annual visitors. On peak summer tourist days, visitors collectively buy over 10,000 pounds of fudge per day. To keep up with this intense demand, the island imports 10 tons of sugar and 1 ton of butter every week.

Instagram post 18026708614277451 My dad absolutely loved drinking coffee and every now and then I would spoil him with a cappuccino when I was free during the hectic summer months. Before he passed, it was pretty obvious to combine our famous family fudge recipe and my most popular flavored brew, Love Potion #9 together. It has become a favorite for both candy and coffee lovers alike. Available again this season at the shops and online! .
