By sheer good luck, I recently clicked through on someone's Facebook link for a competition running on the Fudgeridoo Facebook page and noticed that they were looking for people to review their fudge. Oooh I can do that, I thought ! A little while later, this lovely taster box arrived, containing rather generous samples of two of their fudges.
First up was the intriguingly named Welsh Gold Dust. This creamy beige-coloured fudge (if you're shaking your head, thinking "well obviously, all fudge is that colour, think again - they even have bright blue fudge !) is generously sprinkled with lots of lovely things that I couldn't really define. I'm pretty sure there are chopped up Crunchie bars in there but I could be wrong ! I managed to slice it up into five mini slices so that everyone could have a taste and we decided it was lovely but very very sweet so you wouldn't want to eat too much of it. But, as I'm trying to lose weight, I think that's actually a good thing !
The second sample was the divinely-named Malteser Cheesecake - a name that had us salivating already - but when I sliced it up, this time with several people hanging over my shoulder and dribbling, and we saw the whole Maltesers in there, excitement reached fever pitch and everyone wanted the biggest slice (and suddenly forgot all about the Halloween haul that they'd been asking for just minutes before !). Again, it's very sweet so a small slice is all you need to quell your sugar cravings, but it is decidedly decadent and delicious.
Fudgeridoo have some really weird and wonderful colours, ingredients and flavour combinations so if you're looking for a more original alternative to the usual Christmas box of chocolates, they might have just what you're after. Trying to find what you want is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack at the moment because their website is under construction so you'll have to trawl through their facebook posts, but there is a phoneline so I'm sure they'd be able to guide you through what's on offer. That also means that there isn't much information available about what you're buying - hopefully the website will provide more information on ingredients, allergens and nutritional content when it's up and running - but it's homemade so really that's part of the charm !
