NATIONAL FUDGE DAY

NATIONAL FUDGE DAY

National Fudge Day comes around each year on June 16th, allowing you to indulge in your favorite flavor of this delicious confectionery. Some of the most familiar fudge flavors are chocolate, chocolate nut, peanut butter, maple, and maple nut. 

Fudge lends itself to experimentation when it comes to flavors. Blending favorites or even a moment of inspiration will create a new delicious kind of fudge. Adding bits of candy, nuts, or sprinkles on National Fudge Day can bring just the right celebratory burst of excitement to an old favorite.

In the late 19th century, some shops on Mackinac Island, Michigan, began to produce similar products as the Vassar College fudge and sold it to summer vacationers. Fudge is still made in some of the original shops located on the famous island. 

Three other fudge holidays entice us to celebration, too. Check out May 12th to celebrate all those nutty fudges. July 22nd marks Penuche Fudge Day. Finally, on November 20th, we celebrate Peanut Butter Fudge Day.

Pick up some fudge at your local confectionery store and share it with family and friends. Here is a great fudge recipe if you feel like making your own. Use #NationalFudgeDay on social media.

I was fortunate to be able to visit Mackinac Island on trip to a conference one summer. A unique place and the fudge was great. I've not had any since then - maybe 30 years.

Does anyone know why it's called "fudging" when a person "takes liberties" with some sort of statistics/results ?
