Fact: Americans spend $2.6 billion on flowers for Mother’s Day. Fact: Flowers taste terrible. Fact: Your mom likes fudge.
Mother’s Day is coming up, so it’s time to figure out what to give your mom. Remember, this is the woman who carried you for nine months, endured hours of excruciating pain to bring you into this world, nurtured you throughout your childhood, and helped you become the thoughtful, generous person you are today. A thoughtful, generous person who realizes that a last-minute box of drugstore chocolates or a limp grocery store bouquet won’t cut it. Your mom deserves something nice, like a shiny new Mercedes or a Caribbean cruise, but if those are a little outside the budget there are other choices too. I’m sure you’ll be shocked to learn that I think fudge is a pretty good Mother’s Day gift. The joy of getting that delicious box of fudge will surely make her forget about all the bad words you taught your little brother or the time you filled the bathtub with tadpoles. (You don’t hold any grudges, right Mom?)
This Mother’s Day give your mom a gift that’s almost as sweet as she is. We’ll ship it to her door and even attach a gift tag with your message, making Mother’s Day easier than ever.
Here at SendFudge we’ve gotten awfully tired of those cheap boxed chocolates you get at the drugstore. You know the ones I’m talking about: low quality chocolate, cloyingly sweet fillings full of preservatives and garbage, and flavors that are sometimes unrecognizable. We were so distraught just thinking about all the unfortunate people eating those sad little candies that we decided to do something to make a difference in the world. We took our gourmet fudge and developed a special process to turn it into centers for fudge truffles. The fudge filling is made in small batches, then hand-dipped in premium chocolate and finished with a variety of toppings that hint at the flavor inside while making the truffles look as great as they taste. Each box includes nine different fudge truffles: mint, raspberry, amaretto, vanilla, chili, orange, cappuccino, peanut butter, and sea salt caramel. Which one will be your favorite?
A box of our fudge truffles makes an elegant gift for any occasion, and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner it’s a natural choice. Of course, there’s no reason to wait for a holiday, and you don’t even have to give it away—it’s okay if you want to keep the whole box for yourself.
Did you know cranberries are packed with antioxidants, Vitamin C, and fiber? So that means Cranberry Walnut fudge must basically be a health food, right? We use real, fresh cranberries–grown right here in Washington–to make this unique fudge flavor. It’s not as sweet as you would normally expect fudge to be. The cranberries give it a really surprising, delicious tartness that you won’t find in any other fudge.
Cranberry Walnut fudge is only available during the holiday season, so don’t wait too long to try it. Pair it with our Pumpkin Pie fudge to complete your holiday dessert table with two special seasonal flavors.
Every family has their Thanksgiving traditions. Some are sacred, passed down from one generation to the next, while others we just keep doing because no one can think of a better idea. Here are some cool ways to shake things up this Thanksgiving. If trying something new freaks out your relatives, don’t worry–pretty soon they’ll fall asleep watching football and you can do whatever you want.
The main course
Americans eat 46 million turkeys on Thanksgiving, but let’s face it: turkey is boring. Too often it’s dry and lacking flavor, so we drown it in gravy to try to make it more edible. Maybe it’s time to start a new tradition by reviving an old one. At the first Thanksgiving in 1621, the Pilgrims didn’t just eat wild turkey. They also enjoyed roasted goose, duck, venison, and fish. Pick any of those for a much-needed change of pace.
I like mashed potatoes as much as anyone, but we all know they aren’t very exciting. Sure, you can mix it up by serving sweet potatoes too, but that still isn’t exactly original. You’ve got your whole family gathered to eat, so why not show off your culinary skills? Try yams with ginger, chile, and scallions or a wild rice salad with dried cherries to give your menu a more unique flavor.
No meal would be complete without dessert. Since it’s the last thing you’ll eat, it’s your last chance to make an impression. Instead of the predictable pumpkin pie, serve Pumpkin Pie fudge. Pecan pie is old school and overdone, but Caramel Pecan Cheesecake fudge puts a fresh spin on things. Both are gluten-free, which makes it easy to accommodate guests with dietary restrictions.
There are lots of ways to breathe new life into your family’s traditions. Why not do something a little different this year? Worst case scenario, your family won’t let you host Thanksgiving again, which might not be so bad anyway.
It’s that time of year when we start rolling out some special seasonal flavors. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a whole year since we last offered Pumpkin Pie Fudge, which is always a major fan favorite during the limited time it’s available.
Pumpkins have been a symbol of the fall harvest season for centuries. They’re native to North America, where the earliest colonists found them to be a welcome and much-needed source of food. Without pumpkins, it’s likely that even more of the Pilgrims would have died of starvation in their first years at Plymouth. It’s no surprise, then, that pumpkins have long had a place on the table at Thanksgiving.
Our pumpkin pie fudge is made with real pumpkin, so it tastes just like its namesake. Serve it as dessert for Thanksgiving or your next holiday party, give some as a gift, or just indulge in a classic fall flavor. It’s also gluten-free, which makes it a great alternative for those who can’t eat an actual pumpkin pie. Hurry up and enjoy pumpkin pie fudge while you can, because it won’t be around for long!
