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.

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.

Judging you.

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.
