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 18082778299000097 there is nothing more nostalgic to me than heading up to mackinac island. this tiny island between michigan’s upper and lower peninsula is nothing but charm...mostly because it hasn’t been updated since 1985 and no motor vehicles are allowed on the island. yup! you can only get around by horse and buggies or by bike! i mean you could also walk but ehhh 😂 and no trip up to the island would be complete without grabbing as much of their world famous fudge as i can carry! what were some of your favorite vacation spots as a kid?
