The Fudge House of Edinburgh

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Dessert|United Kingdom

Other than the Edinburgh Castle, we also visited other attractions in Edinburgh.

The weather was fantastic and ideal for photo shooting. It was getting warmer, nearly as hot as Malaysia! This is the view of the city of Edinburgh taken somewhere near the National Gallery of Scotland.

The Scott Monument can be seen from this photo.

A close up on the Scott Monument. The building is open for public to climb 287 steps to the top.

This is the High Court of Justiciary located on the Royal Mile. The blue flag with a white cross is the flag of Scotland. Notice the three brass plates which resemble the letter “I” at the bottom of the photo? This is the site of the last public execution in Edinburgh which was held on 1864.

The Queen’s Gallery, located at the bottom of the Royal Mile, forms part of the Palace of Holyroodhouse complex. The Holyrood Palace is the official residence of the monarch of the United Kingdom in Scotland. It was once occupied by the famous Mary Queen of Scots.

The interior of the Saint Giles’ Cathedral.

Time for some refreshments. After the misfortune in Rabbie Burns café and bar, things moved on to the brighter side. As we passed by this shop selling hand made fudges which caught our attention, we knew we had to try it and went inside.

The fudge house was the home of the original Edinburgh fudge. It was established in the Royal Miles since 1949. The place was filled with tourists, so many of them, all of them speaking different languages.

When queuing up, we snapped a few photos from the glass display.

They offer a large selection of fudge. Here are some of them – the Italian nougat fudge.

Chocolate walnut fudge.

Highland cream fudge.

Chocolate coconut cream fudge. Other than these, they also have rum and raisin fudge, whisky fudge, mocha coffee cream fudge, dark chocolate and strawberry fudge, fudge house special and etc.

The fudge costs £2.35 per 100g. Each bar weights approximately 50 to 70g. We tried 2 types of fudge, the chocolate walnut and the hazelnut fudge. We love anything with nuts, which is why we had two different types of fudge with nuts. Both fudges tasted very sweet, they were very smooth and creamy and it melted in our mouths. They were heavenly delicious and the nuts added crunchiness to it too.

We would recommend you to pay this place a visit. The fudge are really good and while writing this, I am already craving for more fudge! For more information, do visit their official website here.

i'd love to try the highland cream fudge and whiskey fudge … prefer my sweet stuff to be creamier and not nutty… and of coz, alcohol helps. but would probably need to climb those 287 steps up the monument to burn off those calories 😀

Little Inbox, yeah, you're right, fudges are very nice but it might get a little too sweet when one had too much of them.

孤傲的王子, yeah, they are very good in fact, we liked it very much!

SimpleGirl, yeah, haha, quite a lot of people think so. A few bites would be very nice. :)

Selba, thank you! It was our first time trying the fudges out in fact. They were very good! Do check it out when you have the chance!

Sean, haha! What a good idea! We have never thought of that! We didn't climb the steps actually, pretty exhausted after walking around the city all day. Seems like you like the fudge to be on the creamy side, the highland cream fudge might suit you! ^^

Wilson Ng, haha! Nice to meet you! And so surprised to meet so many bloggers at once too! Hope we all can meet up for food! :)

ai wei, oh, spooky? I find the monument quite nice. It's on the expensive side, but really worth to give it a try.

babe_kl, awww, I'm so sorry! I couldn't recognise all bloggers at that time and I was quite nervous, haha! Sorry, hope we can all meet up for food one day and I can introduce myself properly at that time. :)

追梦者, wow, you've been there 3 times? Then I can assume that you like the castle a lot. But it's quite a nice place for tourists, even though it's a little expensive.

ed.inc, yeah, it's quite sweet in fact. Not sure if everyone will like it but we enjoy the sweetness and creaminess of it. Do check it out! ^^

sock peng, 对,哈哈!正如你所说的,天气真的很好,心情也很好!谢谢!:)

焕景*jooh*, guess you would love the chocolate ones if you're a chocolate lover. Do check them out when you have the chance!

ladyironchef, haha, it's a long way to bring them home. Sorry! We'll be posting less on Malaysian post since we have more UK posts now. Sorry to keep you waiting.

foodbin, hehe, they're very delicious in fact. I think the fudge can be found in KL. Hope to try them in KL next time.

北西八地,我们没有尝试过澳洲的所以不太清楚。对不起,回答不到你的问题。

小玉,嗯,味道还不错的。有机会的话一定要尝试哦!

mimid3vils, good question which I find quite hard to answer. It's hard in texture, but melt in your mouth when eaten, very creamy and smooth. :)

~Christine~Leng, haha, at first we thought so too. But it wasn't very sticky, more creamy I think. I think this is the place that you told you about before right?

thenomadGourmand, haha, you have really good memory! I'm stuffing myself with loads and loads of Malaysian food right now. Enjoying every moment here. ^^

My Taste Heaven, yeah, they're really good. We love them. Hope to try it out in Malaysia next time. :)

squall, there are quite a lot of shops selling fudges in the UK. I'm sure you'll be able to find good ones. ^^

龍貓,哈哈,很像吗?我们不太清楚Harry Potter的电影和故事。但是那个建筑物确实很另类。
