National Nutty Fudge Day
Five Food Finds about Fudge
- The first recorded evidence of fudge being made and sold was a letter written in 1886 and found in the archives of Vasser College by Emelyn Battersby Hartridge who wrote that her schoolmate’s cousin made fudge and sold if for 40 cents a pound in a Baltimore grocery store.
- Scottish tablet has been around for much longer, the first note of it being made in The Household Book of Lady Grisell Baillie in the early 18th century which just shows that when it comes to perfecting the art of sweetness, the Scots are way ahead of the game.
