Surely it has to be more than just a coincidence that National Fudge Day (16th June) and Father’s Day (21st June) are in the same week, I mean come on them dads do love a bit of fudge don’t they? And what’s even better is that I’ve been sent some Buttermilk Fudge to review just in the nick of time. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it 😉
Buttermilk is a family run business from Cornwall that has been making fudge and artisan confectionery since 1964. Sticking to traditional fudge making methods, they use traditional copper pans over open flames to create their sweet treats which they sell online and from their shops in Cornwall.
Caramel Sea Salt Crumbly Fudge
First up, let’s take a look at this pack of Caramel Sea Salt Fudge. Now, when you think of fudge I’m guessing you think smooth, like proper satin smooth, melt in the mouth cubes of creamy deliciousness right? Well you need to get that out of your head for a moment because despite ticking the deliciousness box these aren’t what you typically imagine fudge to be like. These are, shall we say, far more rustic, chunks of crumbly deliciousness. Totally yummy, but different.
They’re actually quite granular, kind of like say the texture of a peppermint cream or Kendal mint cake, but I like that. Rich, super sweet, buttery with just the right amount of salt to get your tastebuds begging for more, this Buttermilk fudge crumbles in the mouth in the most satisfying of ways. Two chunks is the perfect amount to have alongside a lovely cup of coffee, as it is so sweet, but that just means it lasts longer right? The gorgeously designed packet means this would make a great Father’s Day present and let’s face it most kids love giving sweet treats as a gift because it usually mans they get to have some too!
Caramel Sea Salt Topped With Milk Chocolate And Sea Salt
This handy share sized pouch of Caramel Sea Salt Fudge is topped with milk chocolate and even more seal salt (well it is Cornish after all) and is basically a pimped up version of their classic Caramel Sea Salt Crumbly Fudge (see above). The chunks look a little bit like mini Millionaire Shortcakes, which means they definitely wouldn’t look out of place served up as an afternoon tea petits fours. If you’re someone who loves a bit of the old sweet and salty combo then these are 100% for you. They’re my fave of the bunch… and I’m definitely not sharing!
Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Crumbly Fudge Bar
Do you remember the finger of fudge bars you used to get as a kid? Well, this is like the adult version of that. Oozing far more sophistication than the orange packaged finger of old, this is not only bigger (thank goodness for that!) but it is also palm oil free and the packaging is plastic free. It’s basically a genius idea from the Buttermilk team. A stick of fudge covered in a generous layer of milk chocolate, it’s just the right size to make you feel like you haven’t been fobbed off, but without so much that it makes you feel piggy. The perfect afternoon (or any time for that matter) pick me up.
All products are gluten free and suitable for vegetarians and are available from the Buttermilk website where you’ll find more details of price and where to buy these fudge products from.
