We stopped in the mercantile as I was told they have the best fudge in town. We bought some fudge for my friends as the owner knew which kinds they liked. We came back later for some ice cream.

The owner of this shop is delightful and will remember you year after year! I've never had better fudge anywhere. The dark chocolate/caramel/sea salt fudge is amazing!

The Gunflint Mercantile has the best fudge and such a cute shop! Not sure which flavor to try? A fudge kabob sampler is a great way to try a few flavors. I loved the Maple Bacon. I also love my soft North Shore hoodie.

If you like your chocolate dark and everything else spicy, then the dark chocolate cayenne fudge is for you. It's got some sass! My wife loved the cookie dough fudge and the kids loved their chocolate and mint chocolate too. Good value too! Great place...More

Great selection of swoonable fudge at this place! It is made fresh and there are several flavors for sale. Check out the free sample, that is what got us to buy a bunch. Candy selection is also retro and fun. Staff friendly and happy.
