Friday. Warm-ish weather. Big weekend plans. My mind was anywhere except in the office. Either its winter and/or working in a fun little town like Nashville, but lately my mind goes right to food/candy/ice cream/goodies. I thought I’d skip (ok not really skip, more like an excited walk) down to the Nashville Fudge Kitchen for a friendly visit and a quick lesson on fudge makin’, where owners Vic and Debbie were happy to demonstrate the process.
First off, the place smells divine. Fudge, flavored popcorn, gelato, and other treats are all made in-house. Hints of chocolate, coconut, peanut butter, strawberry, caramel, butter, SUGAR. You can’t help but want to sample everything.
Opened in 1903, the “kitchen” is right out in the open where you can see fresh fudge and other goodies being prepared. Visiting with a group? You can even schedule a demonstration in advance.
Surprisingly, their most popular fudge flavor is peanut butter. I would’ve guessed the standard chocolate or maybe even rocky road, but peanut butter? Sample? Yes, please! Definitely yummy! So smooth and creamy.
