Fudge Kitchen, Canterbury

We first started making fudge in the UK, as Jim Garrahy's Fudge Kitchen, back in 1983 - but the story of fudge goes back even further...

Fudge originates not from Devon or Cornwall, as many people imagine, but was in fact ‘born’ at a female college in Vasser, USA.

A college lecturer was taking a class in toffee making when the temperature of the concoction was not taken high enough. The end product was called ‘fudge', which is why the term ‘fudge’ is used to indicate a mistake or error.

The US remains one of the fudge-making centres of the world. For example tiny Mackinac Island off the coast of Michigan has over fourteen fudge shops in just two streets, many dating back to the 19th Century.

The fudge we make today is inspired by this heritage. Our recipe dates back to 1830, and we still make our fudge by hand on marble slabs.

Our American-style slab fudge is made using whipping cream instead of butter, giving a creamy soft texture and distinctive flavour.

All our fudge is freshly made and sold at our shops in Bath, York, Cambridge, Canterbury, Windsor, Edinburgh and Oxford. Visit one of our shops and you can try a free sample and catch one of our unique fudge making demonstrations.

If you can't make it to a shop fear not - you can buy our fudge online and from selected stockists across the UK.

  • This is purely for the fudge, the shop worker was really nice and friendly. Fudge I bought is flavourless and a weird texture, even my partner doesn't like it. Really disappointed by it especially at £5 a slice. It kind of disintegrates as you bite it and doesn't taste good at all, a waste of calories.
  • The shop keeper gave me a free sample when I walked in and was very friendly. They have a selection of dairy free fudge.
