A classic staple at confectioneries and tourist traps alike, fudge has been satisfying fine treat lovers around the world for nearly 200 years. With its soft, creamy texture and deeply rich flavor, there is truly nothing in the world like hand crafted Gourmet Fudge and Nougat.
Sure, we might be a little biased. But there’s a reason why millions of tons of fudge are sold each year! We aren’t the only ones who love this sweet, sticky stuff. So, why is fudge so popular? As the Gold Coast’s leading gourmet fudge brand, we have a few ideas on this topic. Below are some of the top reasons why fudge is so popular.
1. Fudge is the perfect complement to coffee.
Between its deeply rich flavor and its silky texture, fudge makes a brilliant treat to pair with coffee. The sweet and bitter flavors complement one another perfectly, making for an unstoppable combination. It’s no coincidence that so many confectionery companies also happen to sell coffee, however we are unique in that we specialise in both Gourmet organic coffee and fudge/nougat.
For the ultimate treat, try dunking a piece of fudge into a piping hot cup of coffee. The fudge will get ultra soft from the heat of the liquid and the coffee will absorb some of those amazing flavors. Coffee and fudge… now that’s a match made in heaven.
2. Fudge tastes great with your favorite dessert.
We all know that fudge is a delectable dessert all on its own. It’s creamy, flavorful, rich, and oh-so-delicious. But have you ever paired it with another dessert? If not, you are in for a serious treat.
Some people opt for fresh fruit as a pairing with fudge to balance out the richness. Others love pairing fudge with ice cream, whether it’s a refreshing mint chocolate chip or a hearty triple chocolate. Try pairing fudge with cake, ice cream, or fruit for a powerful combo you won’t believe you haven’t already tasted.
3. Fudge does not melt and can last for a year at room temperature
You read that right! Have you ever left a piece of chocolate on the counter or in the car, only to return and find that it has melted into a puddle? Unlike your average chocolate bar, it takes a lot more for fudge to melt! This is because of the ingredients used to make fudge and the outer shell that protects the soft insides of the fudge.
What does this mean? Well, for starters, you can store your fudge on the counter without having to worry about returning to find a melted mess. While we still wouldn’t recommend leaving your fudge out under the scorching Australian sun, your sweet treat should be safe indoors.
4. Fudge makes the ultimate gift or party favor.
Looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift or the best Christmas gifts for friends? Fudge makes an excellent choice. Why, you ask? For starters, it’s mouth wateringly delicious. It also travels incredibly well, so you can ship it to your loved ones in a faraway town or serve it as a unique party favor at your next bash.
Speaking of gifts, fudge is also a gift that keeps on giving! A portion of every purchase of Fudge or any other Cococino product goes towards supporting charities such as Bravehearts (Australia's leading child abuse protection organisation) and unlike many other desserts, fudge can be stored in the cupboard for up to a year and still remain in mint condition. This means that your loved one can also enjoy your thoughtful gift long after you give it to them.
