Bought fudge. Walked next door to buy raffle ticket from Our Lady Star of the Sea. Booth closed with a sign to purchase tix at the Fudge Kitchen. Walk right back to candy store while opening fudge. YUUUCCKK!!! The fudge is all sticky and gummy. I tell the clerk and show him the fudge. His response......."oh." So, head a few... More

I always love going into the fudge kitchen when I come down to Cape May. My husband has a "frequent buyer" card I think that gets him coupons. They are a bit pricey but the fudge is really good!

Yes! Irish Potatoes are a wonderful confection with cream cheese/coconut balls rolled in a cinnamon fllavored coating...fantastic. I also developed an addiction to the wonderful almond bark and had to make 3 stops at the store along the shore, not the one in the mall area, during a short stay to satisfy my cravings. Highly recommended! P.S. The actual fudge... More

Loved salt water taffy and some good fudge. Always bring some home from a Cape May visit. Staff is always so helpful ! Buy two pounds of fudge and get a free box of salt water taffy specials always great!

This is one of my regular stops when we visit Cape May every year. There are almost always employees standing outside the store letting you try samples of the fudge. They offer a wide selection of flavors and numerous other sweet favorites. It's a bit pricey, but I generally always walk away with something special from the shop.

You first notice someone standing outside with samples. You taste one ands then immediately go in and buy some for yourself. There is such a wide variety of flavors that it is hard to choose but you finally make up your mind and indulge. You can get coupons of four your next purchase and they also ship. Win win all...

We never leave without getting some of their amazing fudge to bring back to friends and family! The coconut macaroon dipped in chocolate are huge!

Walked by and we were greeted by a friendly person with samples of their delicious fudge. Inside the staff were also friendly and we ended up buying goodies for our friends and family back home.

So your on vacation walking past this nice little fudge shop, not going in because you know the fudge is overpriced, then some nice Bulgarian guy offers you a fudge sample... or two, if no one else is around. Next thing you know, you are hooked! The fudge is great. I am a fan of the classic fudge, as opposed... More
