UK confectionery brand, Fudge Kitchen, will be running back-to-back fudge making experiences this National Fudge Day to raise money for UK food charity Fareshare. Fudge Kitchen will waive the normal price of their fudge making experiences (usually priced from £95), and instead ask customers who have booked for that day to pay any price they see fit (in excess of £10). All proceeds will go directly to Fareshare to provide meals for communities across the UK.
A fudge making experience from Fudge Kitchen is run by one of their fudge experts and allows customers to take part in a fudge making demonstration. You'll learn all about how the fudge is made, and what sets it apart from everyone else. There's also the opportunity to taste lots of the fudge flavours they have on offer, and at the end of the session you'll be given some delicious fudge to take home.
National Fudge Day falls on Thursday 16th June this year, and Fudge Kitchen like to treat it as the brands birthday celebration. In aid of this they are also producing a popular birthday cake fudge, a creamy vanilla fudge interwoven with rainbow sprinkles. From the 16th-19th June birthday cake fudge can be bought from any Fudge Kitchen shop, and customers are asked to pay what they like for each slice with all proceeds going to Fareshare too.
Fudge Making Experiences for Thursday 16th June can be booked directly through one of their shops either by phone, email or each shops dedicated Instagram account. Fudge Kitchen shops can be found in Canterbury, Bath, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Windsor & York. Customers will need to mention that they're booking for the National Fudge Day fundraiser, and all spots will be reserved on a first come first served basis.
Alongside their birthday cake fudge and fudge making experiences, the confectioners will also be running a private online shopping event where customers will receive an exclusive 30% off discount code – to celebrate National Fudge Day. Customers will need to sign up to the event prior to Thursday 9th June in order to receive their exclusive discount code.
Fudge Kitchen have always incorporated charitable giving as part of their business model, and in 2021 alone they raised £15,000 for a number of charitable initiatives. Almost a third of this went to Fareshare UK, which provided nearly 9000 meals.
FareShare is a national network of charitable food redistributors, made up of 18 independent organisations. They distribute good quality surplus food from the UK food industry and get it out to more than 10,500 frontline charities and community groups. The food redistributed by Fareshare reaches charities, including school breakfast clubs, older people's lunch clubs, homeless shelters, and community cafes. Every week they provide enough food to create almost a million meals for vulnerable people.
Fudge Kitchen have been tantalising tastebuds for nearly 40 years with their creamy, premium fudge that's still handmade in small batches at their production site in Kent. Alongside experiential fudge making shops, and an extensive online offering they also make bespoke own label products for some of the most prestigious luxury department stores and hotels in London, including Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and Selfridges.
