I grew up in New England, specifically in NH. I loved the beauty of the area and the "small town" feel and miss it very much. Nothing says home like pure maple syrup, apple picking, the White Mountains, the Lakes Region, and the beauty of white birch trees.
You can take the girl out of New Hampshire, but you can't take the NH out of the girl.
I was recently given the opportunity to try out some handcrafted artisan fudge from The Mill Fudge Factory in Bristol, NH. They totally had me at fudge.
The Mill Fudge Factory & Ice Cream Cafe is a family-owned and operated small business founded by the Munro family in 2006. They use 100% natural ingredients and their family's secret Scottish recipe to create authentic fudge unlike any other. And now they are offering their hand-crafted fudge nationally through their online shop. (which is perfect for home-sick gals like me who are too far away to stop by)
If you are looking for a delicious gift with a taste of New England, then look no further.
It's no wonder that The Mill Fudge Factory & Ice Cream Cafe was named the "Best of NH 2014" by New Hampshire Magazine. This fudge is heaven in a box!
My sampler box arrived with 4 flavors: Original Penuche, Chocolate Raspberry, Belgian Chocolate, and Maple Walnut. Each piece of fudge was just the right size for sharing with my family.
My preschooler loved the Belgian chocolate and my hubby was a fan of the chocolate raspberry. It was gobbled up in merely minutes. (In case you have any leftovers, you can freeze them)
But my absolute favorite was the Maple Walnut. I can't say enough about this yummy goodness! I have always LOVED (and that is an understatement) pure maple syrup; on pancakes, french toast, & waffles. And maple sugar candy from back home sends me into bliss. This fudge knocked it out of the park with cane sugar, evaporated milk, butter, pure maple syrup, walnuts, pure honey and maple extract. Oh. My. YUM!
|Pardon my fudgey fingers!|
I've already asked Santa to send me some Maple Walnut fudge for Christmas. It is THAT good! (I know, I know, it's only September. But a girl has to plan ahead) And did you know they have a Fudge Club? It's time for some serious fudge therapy.
This fudge is perfect for Halloween treats, dessert at the Thanksgiving table, or makes a perfect Christmas or Hanukkah gift (there's always that one person you're not sure what to buy them, so fudge is a tasty option!)
Plus, they have other options such as decadent truffles and toffee. You're sure to find something to love.
