pumpkin fudge


Does anyone know of a good online place to buy pumpkin fudge, or any fudge for that matter. That's also reasonable price.

Thanks

When you say pumpkin fudge, do you mean pumpkin fudge or pumpkin spice fudge?

Fudge is chocolate, dude. Only chocolate. Pumpkin candy is a different thing entirely. Even brown sugar candy has its own name: penuche. Not fudge.

I don't live too far from Mackinac now... Nah, don't need those empty calorie bombshells.

There's a place here in Topeka that makes it seasonally. It will be available in October and November. I don't think they do mail order, but if you really, really want some, and can wait, I can mail it to you.

I also see some good recipes online. Try www.allrecipes.com

Did not know this, but the All Recipe site has Vanilla, Egg Nog, and Pumpkin Fudge recipes, without any chocolate.


I can't make my own (no kitchen). Just hoping for some recommendations for favorite online sellers.

Thanks

That's not how fudge is defined in various websites and online dictionaries. All define it as including sugar, milk and butter, along with flavoring that may or may not be chocolate.

The Vermont Country Store has it as a seasonal item. As far as I recall I haven’t ordered this specifically but I can vouch for this company’s overall quality and customer service. I have been a regular customer for years.

OK then, but if someone offers you a piece of fudge do you ask what flavor? I guess the word fudge can mean whatever you want or whatever the on-line dictionary says, but if you are offered some fudge and don't like chocolate I bet you are going to be disappointed.

No, I ask, "Thanks! Will you be my friend?"

It's getting to be that time of year again when Olive Garden sells Pumpkin Cheesecake, if you're having trouble finding fudge.

Maybe Iíve been to too many tourist trap towns around the midwest, but when I hear fudge I indeed think of the endless variety of flavors. Mint, rocky road, strawberry, butterscotch, maple, irish creme, etc.etc.
