28/09/2019 11:04

Who doesn’t enjoy a piece of fudge? With a history dating back to the 19th century, fudge has always been a firm favourite. It seems that every tourist destination around the world has its own souvenir fudge for sale. Kept sealed, this edible memory of your holiday will still be fresh a year later.

Our Top 10 Fudge Flavoured Sweets

Fudge is popular around the world, its origins can be traced back to the United States, but can now be found just about anywhere. Home baking fudge is very popular. Every flavour known to man has seemingly be added to fudge at some point.

Let’s have a look at some of the most popular as well as classic flavours.

  • Vanilla Fudge. Many old recipes for fudge list vanilla as a key ingredient. Seemingly able to melt in the mouth, or be chewed, this classic, creamy fudge is still as popular as ever.

  • Clotted Cream Fudge. This is every bit as delicious as it sounds. A seemingly perfect match. The soft texture of fudge infused with the lush thick creaminess of clotted cream. Many areas of the UK, particularly in the south-west, claim this flavour as their own. 

  • Bailey’s Fudge. Yes, the drink. We’re not sure fudge gets more luxurious than this. An obvious Christmas favourite, but why not enjoy a bit of luxury all year round?

  • Cherry Fudge. The powerhouse flavour of cherry cannot fail to have you saying ‘wow’. The contrast with the soft subtle sweetness of fudge makes for a delightful eating experience.

  • Jelly Baby Fudge. Any top 10 list will be disputed and I’m sure there’ll be many raising their eyebrows at jelly baby fudge! Why not, though? Combining two of the oldest confectionery favourites in the same mouthful. It might sound a little bit wrong, but it tastes so right.

  • Rum And Raisin Fudge. This flavour, we’re sure, was causing raised eyebrows when it was first introduced. Now, though, it has become an absolute fudge classic. Not only that, it is definitely one of our best sellers.

  • Nutty Split Fudge. Two fudges in one. A classic fudge on top of a white, nutty bottom half. A double taste sensation with the crunchy nuts to compliment the smooth fudge. The two-part fudge could well be the future.

  • Salted Caramel Fudge. Salted caramel is becoming one of the most popular flavours in desserts, ice cream, even cakes. So why not fudge. This relatively new flavour has quickly become a classic. The tangy salt smoothed by creamy fudge. Mouthwatering.

  • Strawberry Cheesecake Fudge. The possibilities are endless. This one has made the top 10 partly because the multicoloured swirls are so eye-catching. The strawberry looks almost pink and tastes so naturally sweet.

  • Peanut Butter Fudge. As flavours started to be added to fudge, particularly in America, peanut butter was one of the first combinations. The UK fudge connoisseurs were slower to warm to what has become an absolute classic fudge. Now, it truly is a top 10 fudge.

 So there you have it. With so many flavours to choose from, we will never all agree on which are the best 10.
