Tell us a bit about yourselves! What is your name, and what do you sell?

My name is Zoe Walker and I make fudge using traditional methods. All our fudge is hand beaten and made with with love over the stove top at my home in Woodborough. We sell fudge in a range of different flavours.

What would you recommend as the perfect luxury gift from your range?

We have a range of beautiful gift boxes which are finished with ribbon. Each contain up to 4 flavours of fudge of your choosing inside.  If you can’t decide which flavours to choose, I’d recommend the Taste of Christmas luxury box.  It contains Chocolate Orange, Baileys Irish Cream, Moreish Mince Pie and Cranberry & Pistachio fudge, and weighs in at a whopping 1lb!

What would you recommend as the perfect stocking filler from your range?

Our Salted Caramel is a smooth caramel fudge finished with Cornish Sea Salt and is our best seller.  A bag of this is sure to delight anyone opening their stocking on Christmas morning!
