There is a place in Canterbury near the Cathedral, at the top end of the Kings Mile, that smells devilishly divine. As you walk past you are hit with wafts of warm caramel, indulgent notes of toffee, vanilla drifts of superheated sugar and sinfully rich hints of melted chocolate.

We will get onto the fudge itself in a moment, I promise.
For now, let me tell you a little bit more about fudge in general. Fudge was originally 'born' at a female college in Virginia in the States, not in Cornwall or Devon surprisingly. Apparently a college lecturer was taking a class in toffee making when the
temperature of the concoction was not taken high enough. The end product
was called ‘fudge' and in one fell swoop two things were invited; a creamy, delicious treat and the term to 'fudge' something.
