Murdick’s Cherry Fudge Flavors

By Anna Faller | June 11, 2022

If northern Michigan were a building, fudge would form the bricks and Doug Murdick’s Fudge would be the sugar-spun cement. Murdick’s namesake sweets begin with half-and-half, whipping cream, and plenty of sugar. From there, each mixture is melted to temperature (each of which is flavor-dependent) in an old-school copper kettle before hitting one of the marble “make tables” to be hand-paddled and formed to creamy perfection. All 16 silky flavors are hand-crafted from natural ingredients and are fudgin’ delicious, but the elusive cherry flavors are the real find. Sate your sweet tooth with the Black Cherry Fudge—that’s a pure vanilla base-turned-cherry pink and studded with local fruit—or indulge your dark side with a Chocolate Cherry slice. Pro tip: National Fudge Day falls on June 16, so there’s never been a better time to cash in on those “fudgie” cravings. Find these flavors and more at Murdick’s locations in Traverse City and Acme.
