I’ve tried fudge from little Cornish shops and Christmas markets, finding it grainy, the flavours disappointing and leaving me feeling sick. In 2016 I came across #FabFudge on Twitter. The fact they made vegan fudge in quite unusual handmade flavours caught my interest, and being localish to me (Bristol) and raising money towards MS treatment was… fab. I quickly discovered that it is not fudge I dislike, but mass produced “fudge”.
|Vegan #FabFudge Review|
The flavours tasted exactly like they were meant to be and the texture was melt-in-the-mouth, similar to luxury truffles. It goes without saying that I’ve ordered a few times now and enjoyed samples from them at Gloucester vegan Christmas market.

White chocolate raspberry
Vegan white chocolate fudge is a very new thing to me so I knew I had to add some to my latest order. You would never guess it was made from coconut instead of cow. Even my omnivorous dad and vegetarian mum loved this, with my mum requesting some for her birthday.
|Vegan mint chocolate fudge, #FabFudge|
A traditional favourite. This was the second time I ordered the mint-choc flavour. I’m not a massive dark chocolate fan but with this, I would never have guessed it was made with it. Being made from coconut, it is really creamy with a fantastic chocolate flavour and minty kick. I am pretty confident I will be ordering this for a 3rd time.
|Vegan solid cream egg, #FabFudge|
The best till last. This was the first vegan fudge I ordered and was amazed at how it tasted like a real Cadbury creme egg. A perfect of vegan-friendly dupe. I am so happy that cream egg flavour is available all year round (in your face seasonal Cadburys!) This year they did one better and created a stunning limited edition solid cream egg. As I mentioned in a previous post, I ended up with two!
Like the other flavours, everyone I reluctantly shared it with loved it. This will definitely be the first thing I order again.
I appreciate that the smaller sized fudge comes pre-cut. Nothing is more tedious that cubing a big old block of fudge.
So if you are like me and don’t like fudge, give #FabFudge a try as it is unlike any other fudge and all for an amazing cause. If you are near Bristol, #FabFudge just announced they will be attending Bristol VegFest at the end of next month, but you can always order online.
If you could have fudge in any flavour, what would it be? Have you tried #FabFudge before?
