My first attempt was perfect. Heavenly. Melt in your mouth. Then I realised in tiny writing at the bottom of the chocolate packaging that the baking chocolate is processed in a factory that contains nuts. One of the to-be recipients had an allergy to almonds, and not wanting to be the cause of anaphylactic shock (afterall people’s levels of tolerance vary), I set about to find a substitute.

Eight attempts later… (I kid you not), I packed them off and sent them to Belly Rumbles, Love Swah and The Heart of Food. And what did that stupid fudge do? It melted. Curse you fudge. So take note, this fudge is not suitable for the mail!!

In return, three lovely parcels from Chewtown, One Small Pot and Gastromony arrived on my doorstep. Not gloating or anything, but I totally hit the jackpot.

Chewtown clearly knew she was creating for a Canadian stomach. Didn’t you hear? Canadians practically drink maple syrup! So not surprisingly, Chewtown’s maplecomb, honeycomb made with maple syrup, made me a very happy girl. And to top it off, she attached an insanely cute label for her logo.

One Small Pot sent mint slices, which I happily ate in one sitting (mint slices should never be left around me unless you want them gone).

And from Gastronomy, I was sent macadamia and passionfruit fudge. Not only was it deadly good, I did the stupid thing and left it at home while I went to work the next day. I came home to find the container polished off… 😐

  1. These Wonka’s fudge mountain chunks sound delicious. Sorry to hear it didn’t travel well… but I’m sure it tasted wonderful. Glad you liked the maplecomb! While I am not Canadian, I must have a distant relation as I find excuses to put it in everything!

  2. I was wondering if you could do strawberry flavoured chocolate coloured fudge, since you’ve already made the fudge from the fudge mountain. It would be nice to know how to change the flavour to strawberry, since most recipes I’ve come across are made with chocolate. I really want to try a fudge with strawberry!
