America’s 25 Best Fudge Shops Gallery

Fudge’s American roots can be traced to the 1880s, to a shop in Baltimore as well as New York’s Vassar College, where an early recipe caught on like wildfire and is still popular there today. Fudge made its way to the popular summer resort of Mackinac Island, Michigan, several years later, where it exploded in popularity, and today it’s essentially the island's signature snack, with numerous shops there turning out top-quality fudge.

Great fudge, however, can be found from coast to coast. In order to assemble our ranking, we canvassed the country for well-known fudge shops, with help from sources both in print and online. In order to be considered, the shops needed to make all their fudge from scratch by hand (preferably on-premises daily), had to be turning out some creative and delicious fudge varieties, and being a revered local institution certainly didn’t hurt. Many of America’s best fudge shops are family-run, some for generations, but all are making a truly artisanal product with a whole lot of care and love.

From a mother-daughter operation in Oklahoma that’s so popular it’s only open by appointment to several Mackinac Island mainstays, from a Nantucket must-visit to a San Francisco shop turning out some ingenious creations, reading about these shops will give you a serious hankering for some good old-fashioned fudge. Thankfully, most of these places ship! Read on to learn which fudge shops are America’s best.
