We have stopped at this shop before, but this is the first time I reviewed it. I purchased some pecan fudge, and it was delicious! Also enjoyed looking around the store for souvenirs and other items. The ladies working there were friendly and helpful.

Good ice cream and fudge, albeit at tourist prices. Lots of nice nic-nacs but one of my favorite stops on the Front Street and waterfront.

The General Store in Beaufort, NC has some of the tastiest fudge in the world with several very unique flavors! This is also a great place to get some great keepsakes for those visiting or for gifts to take home to family and friends. But even many locals come here just for that amazing fudge!!

After waiting 2 years to get my hands on the best fudge in the world, I was sad to find that they no longer had bacon fudge! Our whole trip to Beaufort was based on my need for bacon fudge. :( Please bring it back! Sniff, sniff...

We dropped by the General Store for drinks and snacks before heading home after a day at Shackleford Banks. They had a good gas station variety of drinks. There is a deli counter in the back. We got two cupcakes. Mine was the triple chocolate, and it was ok. Not super. My husband enjoyed his orange cream one, however. You... More
