I’ve previously added a couple of reviews of some of the Fudge Kitchen fudge , including their highly popular Belgian chocolate Swirl Fudge and the Double Chocolate Fudge so I was well versed in how great their fudge was and after talking with Dan from their head office back I thought I’d say I was popping in and if I could watch them making the fudge.
The shop is right on the courtyard to the Abbey so I’m sure it would get a lot of passing trade from tourists and if you’re visiting Bath you’ll probably come across it – every time over the past couple of years I’ve been to Bath I’ve found myself popping in – you can hardly miss it.
The shop looks great and Nick will make sure that you come in and try some of free fudge to sample if you’re passing within 20 yards of the shop.
From the street you’ll notice the huge vat of molten fudge and a marble table which, if you’re nosey like me, it’ll draw you in.
The Walk In
You’ll probably find Andy making fudge at one stage or another and Nick being incredibly sociable behind the counter. They’ll both make you feel incredibly welcome as soon as you step foot in the shop.
It won’t be a problem of working out what your mission is. There’s a counter in front of you with about ten to twelve of the varieties they sell, so it’s just a case of deciding which to buy.
After seeing the Lemon Meringue fudge on their website I really wanted some of that. But when I went in I found out they didn’t have any in stock :-( . But they did still have a good selection including the chocolate classic, Maple Walnut, Double Trouble Chocolate, Rich Chocolate and Orange, Boozy Fruit and Nut and the Whisky Creame Supreme – that should be enough for most people.
If every shop had Andy and Nick in it then the world would be a better place! I’ll have to visit their other shops to compare, however! I do feel a chocolate shopping to York coming on and I’ll report back.
They made you feel incredibly welcome when you walked in, even before they knew I was going to review the fudge and take some pictures – they’re a credit to the company (and no they didn’t bribe me to say that ;-) )
Being a tight pseudo-northerner I probably wouldn’t pay the prices if I didn’t know what the fudge was like. But many of the people who walked in said it was good value. So basing my score on mine and their thoughts, I think they do exceptionally well.
After reviewing their fudge I’d have to give them top marks.
Can you Buy Online?
Yes – and if you use the voucher code chocolatereviews you can save yourself 10% off your order.
It’s not my favourite sweet shop of all time.
Would I go back?
