Mackinac Island Fudge

Mackinac Island fudge is rich, soft, and creamy and can be purchased at any of the wonderful fudge shops on the Island.

For years, tourists have affectionately been called “fudgies” but truthfully, even long-time Island residents qualify as “fudgies” because they love the fudge too!

The question that has never been answered is “who makes the best fudge?” Only you can decide! Try all the shops and come to your own conclusion! What a yummy way to spend some vacation time.

Here is the list of shops. If you can’t visit Mackinac Island, call these shops and place an order. You can do your taste-testing from home as they ship their treats world wide.
