Midwest Living Review

Packed with gifty items, seasonal decorations and candy, this shop sells a dozen kinds of fudge -- 100 pounds a week.

As the name implies, this shop is situated in a charming corner shop. The shop used to be a gift store that sold fudge; now it's a fudge store that sells gifts. At first, Julie Hubbard was amazed when the fudge started selling so well. But, with a shrug, she says, "Apparently if you make good fudge, people will find you." She learned many of the recipes from her grandmother. "She's my inspiration." Caramel apple pie was the flavor of the month when we visited. Yum! Plain chocolate continues to be a bestseller. Ask about the "six-pack special" -- buy a pound and get another half-pound free, divided into six quarter-pound chunks.
