Caring For Your Fudge

What is the size of a fresh whipping cream fudge slices?

Our whipping cream fudge is available in thick luxurious slices, weighing approximately 175 grams / H 65 x W 115 x D 23 mm. Size stated is approximate only, all fudges are hand-sculpted, hand-cut, and may vary depending on the fudge maker, and potentially the volume of coffee consumed by said fudge maker.

How long does the fudge last?

Our whipping cream fudge is freshly made and should keep for up to 10 days, but whether you can wait that long is another matter.

Store your fudge at room temperature, as the sugar in the fudge acts as a natural preservative. DO NOT REFRIGERATE it, as this can affect the colour and texture of the fudge. Humidity and sudden changes in temperature may affect the firmness of your fudge.

Gourmet All Butter Fudge, Drinking Fudge and Luxury Fudge Sauces can be stored for up to 6 months (check best before end date). Store all fudges in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

Can I freeze my fudge?

If you have oodles of willpower and want to save your fudge for later, it freezes well. Wrap each slice (or the whole box) in foil or plastic wrap to seal it. To defrost, unwrap for at least two hours in a cool dark place.

Let your fudge thaw in a cool environment, unwrapped and standing on its greaseproof sheet. If at first a shiny stickiness appears on the surface, this will clear in time but it helps if it is not in a hot or humid atmosphere.

Is your fudge gluten free?

Our fudges are gluten free and vegetarian friendly unless stated otherwise. All ingredients and allergens are labelled on our product pages.

Is your fudge vegetarian friendly?

All of our whipping cream fudge is vegetarian friendly, as are most of our butter fudge flavours. Some of our Drinking Fudge gifts sets may include marshmallows, which contain pork gelatin; all ingredients and allergens are clearly labelled on our product pages.

What goes into fudge?

Our fudge is made in small batches using only fresh and natural ingredients; granulated sugar, liquid sugars, fresh whipping cream (our vegan slab fudge is made using gluten free OAT drink, coconut cream, ALMOND drink or rice drink, depending on fudge flavour), natural flavourings and colours, salt. Plus, depending on the flavour, we may add cocoa powder, fresh and dried fruits, nuts, chocolate, marshmallows, biscuits, dried spices and dextrose.

Most of our fudges are gluten free and vegetarian friendly unless stated otherwise. We are proud of the fact we don’t use any artificial flavourings or preservatives in our fudge.

All our fudge flavours are handmade in an environment which handles nuts, milk and cocoa and therefore may not be suitable for those with allergies.

About our Slab Fudge

We hope you love your fudge just as much as we do. If you can resist it, you can store your fudge at room temperature for a couple of weeks. If you want it to stay fresh for longer, you can always wrap it in its greaseproof jumper (optionally in a tupperware container) and let it live it up in the freezer. You don’t even have to defrost it – your fudge tastes just as scrumptious frozen and cuts easily with a knife. If you’re not into frozen fudge, simply leave it to stand unwrapped for two or three hours out of direct sunlight – perhaps somewhere private to preserve its modesty.

Your fudge is handmade and like the people who make it, every batch is slightly different. Some are slightly softer and runnier while some have a bit more bite… but every piece will be smooth and creamy. Embrace the different textures and flavours of your fudge.

We’d love it if you never threw your fudge away. Even if your fudge has been forgotten at the back of a cupboard or in a shoe box under the bed whilst you took a six-month sabbatical in darkest Peru, spent a gap year on the Sea of Tranquillity, or sat in a traffic jam on the M25 (which, let’s face it, can take years to get out of), you can still enjoy your fudge when you get back. Just melt the fudgy goodness in the microwave in short 10 second bursts, or gently warm on the hob with a splash of cream, and pour that bad boy on the nearest thing you can find – ice cream, waffles… or into the bathtub for a shamelessly decadent fudge bath experience! Anything. Lovely.

We really hope you find our fudge as delicious as we do!
