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 17882603653725479 Mackinac Island is know for it's world famous fudge. During peak tourist season, 10,000 pounds of fudge is made each day! Yep, you read that right! There are 14 fudge shops located on the island, and everyone leaves with at least one piece of fudge. 

So how do you choose the right shop? Don't you worry, I have your back! In this weeks video, I decided to put 4 of the major brands in a taste test to determine which company deserves the award for BEST FUDGE! It was a tough job, but someone had to do it!

If you want to see how each of the fudges compared and which one I gave the title for best fudge, then head over to my YouTube channel and check out the video (link in my bio)! In the comments, let me know which company makes YOUR favorite fudge and what flavor is your favorite! 

I want to personally thank each and everyone of you who continue to support my channel and follow along my adventures. It is because of you that I hit 400 subscribers this week! I am blown away that I have achieved this goal and it's mind boggling to me that people actually enjoy following me along my crazy adventures through this thing we call life. If you are not already and want to see all of the adventures that I have in store, then don't forget to SUBSCRIBE. My next adventures are ones you won't want to miss!

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.
