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..

"Life is like riding a bicycle; In order to stay upright, you need to keep moving."⁠
-Albert Einstein⁠

We're so thrilled to feel the invigorating sunshine and the warmer air of spring in Petoskey. It's the season of rebirth, growth, and movement. Bikes have always represented such freedom and joy to us, and working on Mackinac Island inspired us to make them a big part of our daily lives. Enjoy these warmer days, air up those tires, and get out for a ride.⁠ To see the original painting, stop by latitude45 in Petoskey!

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.
