A Fudge a’fare to remember
Fudge a’fare is a locally owned and run business creating award winning fudge liked you’ve never tasted before.
Owner Danielle Quinn says originally she and her partner were not fans of fudge, at least not the traditional types they had tried in the past. A chance introduction 15 years ago, led them both to fall in love with a friend’s sample bags made by his mother who was already running an established business.
This fudge recipe was different; smooth, creamy and irresistible! Danielle and her partner Matthew made an offer and took over the business a year later. Danielle calls it their “ I liked it so much I bought the company” moment!
Trained at Wrest Point, Danielle is a qualified pastry chef and connoisseur of all things sweet. She brought her expertise into fudge making and along with Matthew they set up a commercial kitchen on their property in Lutana to allow them to keep production local and manage a family business like many other small business owners in the area.
Their absolute belief and commitment to selling an exceptional Tasmanian made fudge has led to national accolades and awards aplenty. Fudge a’fare have been awarded gold, silver and bronze awards at the fine food awards in both Hobart and Sydney. In particular their Raspberry Fudge was crowned Champion Chocolate in recognition of the quality product Danielle and Matthew have created. The fudges are also gluten free and contain no artificial flavours or colours which appeal to their large customer base.
In Tasmania their products can be found across all gift shops, souvenir and chocolate shops as well as the gourmet grocer like Salamanca Fresh. Until recently Fudge a’fare was a fixture at Salamanca Markets but with the effects of the global pandemic the stallfront was recently closed along with the market.
Unlike many of their market colleagues, Danielle and Matthew were able to rely on their established website, shop outlets and their Facebook site to keep the business running in these difficult times. Their regular Facebook updates have broadened their outreach to gain customers’ purchases by offering pick up and delivery options to locals.
