I stupidly didn’t check to see if I’ve already reviewed this double trouble chocolate fudge, but I already had! What through me here was that this pone had what looks like white chocolate fudge sauce flicked across it, whilst the previous didn’t. But It’d be rude not to review it again, seeing as I’ve already cut off a large slice …
Basically everything I said then now stands, but I’ve dialled down my sweetness dial a touch over the past fourteen months, but I still absolutely love the fudge. I’ve tried loads of mass market stuff and it virtually always comes across as dry and brittle – well compared to every slice of Fudge Kitchen fudge I’ve had to date. It’s this soft, pliable texture that just amazes me. Even watching them make the fudge I still don’t know how they manage to achieve that wonderful texture.
The flavour is incredibly sweet, as you’d expect. It plays on two levels. The front of your mouth is hit by the chocolate tones whilst the back is hit by the sugar. For me it’s a massive hit, for the younger generation, or people with an extreme sweet tooth then this would be spot on, for me, I can only manage about 1/5th of a slice in a given day as I’d be on a sugar high.
From what I remember from chatting to them, the fudge will last for a week wrapped up in the box and perhaps three months in the freezer. And that’s a good job too. A four slice box will set you back £15.99 but it will last a good week for a couple, just nibbling a few chunks after work. For that, I’d say it was very good value for money. And if you’ve got a mum that does have a sweet tooth then it’s probably a wonderful alternative Mother’s Day gift than selection box of chocolates. I won’t be getting some, as my mother is diabetic, but if she wasn’t this would be on the list I’m sure.
If anyone knows of a better fudge maker, I’d love to know, as I’ve never found one!
