Island Fudge Socks
Mackinac Island is known for many things such as horse drawn carriages, bicycles, the famous Grand Hotel, and fudge. Lots of creamy melt in your mouth fudge! Its road to fame began all the way back in 1887, ironically the same year the Grand Hotel opened its doors. This was the year for Mackinac Island to boom as a resort and vacation spot which led Henry F. Murdick and his son, Newton Jerome (Rome) to their idea of fudge. Large sailing vessels and passenger steam ships were bringing people from all over to the island, and they flocked to the shops buying record amounts of gifts and souvenirs. Murdick and son opened the first candy store on the island and it was a phenomenal success. It is made still the old fashioned way, in large copper pots, no factories, no preservatives, and even the sweet cream that goes into it is made from scratch! Wow! Thanks to Murdick’s Fudge Shoppe for this information!
