Oh fudge

Did you know that fudge is “made by mix­ing sug­ar, but­ter, and milk, heat­ing it to the soft-ball stage at 240 °F, and then beat­ing the mix­ture while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, creamy con­sis­ten­cy?” That’s not what I would have guessed ‘the soft-ball stage’ is if you asked me, but hey! You learn some­thing new every day.

This is not particularly relevant, but yes it is. You shut your mouth.

This is not par­tic­u­lar­ly rel­e­vant, but yes it is. You shut your mouth.

Tan­gent: when we went to see this movie in the the­ater, at this part my dad yelled, “Duh!” Peo­ple loled.

 

Any­way. Fudge is one of those things that you real­ly could not just eat forever and ever. Because it’s so flip­pi­ty-frack­ing rich. Which is the point of it, so you real­ly can’t hold that again­st it. My favorite fudge is packed with nuts because I am a nut for nuts. Wal­nuts, almonds, peanuts, pecans… Yes please.

I’m also fair­ly cer­tain I can thank Lit­tle Deb­bie for this obses­sion.

The­se were my FAVORITE thing to buy with my lunch mon­ey. See also: Zebra Cakes. Appar­ent­ly Lit­tle Deb­bie owned my 10 year old soul.

It’s been rumored that indi­vid­u­als have been known to add fruit to fudge, and I for one find that com­plete­ly repul­sive.

I just threw up in my mouth a lit­tle.

 

Why would you go and ruin per­fect­ly good choco­late with fruit? The peo­ple that like fruity fudge prob­a­bly like vanil­la ice cream too.

Did you know that a per­son who pack­ages fudge is a fudge pack­er? Appar­ent­ly South Park made Tom Cruise a fudge pack­er in an episode. …I can see that.
