There are many pleasures in taking a trip ‘Up North;’ the lakes, the nature, the countless views, and arguably the most important, the fudge. Everyone who has made a summer trip to their favorite Northern Michigan city probably has a favorite fudge shop, but you don’t have to make that three-plus hour trip to get your hands on some delicious fudge. If you’re in the mood for some fudge (and when is anybody not?) checkout these candy shops in Southeast Michigan.
One of the most popular fudge stores in all of Michigan since 1964, Frankenmuth Fudge Kitchen is a must visit for any Michigander. With flavors ranging from dark chocolate, to salted caramel cashew, to pistachio, there is bound to be a flavor for everyone. You can buy three and get one free if you order on their website.
Featuring a true 1890’s style candy shop decor, the Jackson Candy & Fudge Factory is not only a place to get all sorts of candy and fudge, but it’s also a fun place to visit. They feature flavors such as chocolate, raspberry swirl, milk ’n’ cookies, and even root beer. The store also offers Fundraising with Fudge, where you can make your next fundraiser a little more tasty for everyone involved.
What started out as a simple setup at a local county fair nearly 30 years ago has developed into a Holt community favorite and the place to get mouth-watering handmade fudge. The store makes everything from pecan turtle, peanut butter, chocolate walnut, and English toffee fudge. To get all of the delicious details on all of their fudge offerings, be sure to visit their website.
Located in the heart of Plymouth, Kilwins features handmade fudge, caramel, and other delicacies. The old fashioned homemade fudge has the “Taste of Mackinac Island” and has been considered one of the best-tasting fudges for over 70 years. The shop also has a location in downtown Ann Arbor.
Making fine candies since 1948, Ross Fine Candies in Waterford knows how to make unique and great tasting fudge. Known for their Easter Bunny chocolates, the store’s rich and creamy chocolate keeps Metro Detroiters coming back for more. They also sell caramel apples, saltwater taffy, brittle, clusters and plenty more goodies.
