Grocer’s Daughter Fudgesicles

By Ross Boissoneau | June 29, 2019

Fudgesicle (fuj-sikl) noun. The melding of chocolate ganache with various flavors in a delicious confection, served frozen on a stick. See Grocer’s Daughter Chocolate for details. Or just go there yourself and pick one (or more) up. The confectionary in the bright green building in Empire offers a variety of flavors, all based on chocolate of course. There’s milk chocolate lemon ginger, milk chocolate vanilla cinnamon, dark chocolate coconut, dark chocolate honey passion fruit, milk chocolate chai — even abstruse combinations like mango avocado. Whatever your favorite, make sure you check back often, as the flavors are constantly rotating, changing, and morphing into something else. With eight typically available, it’s hard to say what will be on hand at any one time — other than plain milk chocolate and plain dark chocolate, which are always available. Don’t scoff at the plain varieties, as they’re delicious. But milk chocolate chai — mmmmm, now you’re talking. $1.99 each. Grocer’s Daughter is open seven days a week at 11590 South Lacore (M-22) in Empire. (231) 326-3030, www.grocersdaughter.com
