National Fudge Day

National Fudge Day allows you to indulge in the decadent sweet candy that is loved all over the globe. This delicious and tasty treat is an excellent way to spend any day, but especially National Fudge Day.

Fudge is soft and smooth confectionary made from milk, butter, and sugar. Fudge can be made with a variety of ingredients. Peanut butter and chocolate are two of the most well-known flavors, but there are many other fudge flavors out there that you can try.

National Fudge Day encourages you to try new flavors and share them with your loved ones.

Fudge is believed to be an American invention. Emelyn Hartridge wrote the first documented mention of fudge in a letter. She was a student at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie (New York). In the letter, Emelyn Hartridge stated that fudge was made in Baltimore, Maryland and sold at a grocery store there in 1886. Fudge was then 40 cents per pound. The popularity of chocolate fudge grew from this point and spread to other colleges for women.

Many people believe that the first instance of fudge was a mistake. The first batch of caramels could have gone wrong, and the result could be called “fudged”. This would explain why we still use “fudging” to describe something today.

The origins of other fudge recipes can be traced back as far as the late nineteenth century and the early 20th centuries. Mackinac Island is a popular vacation spot in the Upper Peninsula of northern Michigan that is known for its fudge-making skills. Since the late 19th century, summer vacationers have been buying fudge from local shops. Mackinac Island Fudge, a delicious version ice cream made with small chunks fudge, is still available on the island.

Modern fudge recipes are largely unchanged from those created more than 150 years ago.
