It’s rare, or maybe unheard of, for a brand to mean a lot to a couple and their relationship – a brand that makes you smile or think back to happy memories. For Stu and I, Fudge Kitchen holds significance. On our first anniversary trip to Bath last year we were introduced to the wonders of Fudge Kitchen and how kind the staff were to us. Thinking it was just a Bath thing, we met the team again at Country Living’s Spring Fair and began to really fall in love with their brand. We’d always talked about doing their fudge making experience – where you learn how to make fudge and take home a selection of slices – so when in Edinburgh to celebrate our 2nd anniversary we decided to treat ourselves.
Boy are we glad we did! It was essentially an hour and a half of hanging out with the team, making fudge, eating fudge, drinking tea and finding out more about Fudge Kitchen and how their company has developed. Ray, Steph and Jessi were incredibly welcoming; keen for us to take photos (Ray took most of them in this post) and Steph humoured us as we attempted to make our first ever batch of fudge (you could certainly build up some arm muscles doing that job!). As far as Sunday mornings go, we couldn’t have been happier.
We also got to take home some of the fudge we made, as well as six slices of our choice! We opted for dark chocolate and sea salt, raspberry and white chocolate, Belgian chocolate swirl, salted caramel, chocolate orange and one of the managers specials – snickers fudge.
If you’re reading this and thinking well that’s all well and good but it’s just fudge, think again. I’ll be completely honest (I told the Fudge Kitchen team this too) and say I didn’t really like fudge pre-Fudge Kitchen, but this product is out of this world. Creamy, sweet and delicious.
The whole experience cost us £50, but with a selection to take home as well as learning the process behind how they make a batch, it was well worth every penny for us. The only thing we struggled with was fitting it all in our suitcase going home!
To end this post I just want to make clear that I wasn’t asked to write this post and we paid ourselves to do the fudge making experience. Stu and I want to share how much we love this company as well as express our thanks to Ray, Steph and Jessi for giving us an enjoyable experience we’ll never forget.
