In amongst the shops selling kilts, the all important ginger wigs and Saltires there were a number of gems including traditional cigar shops which were a real surprise. Very interesting to see Monte Cristo cigars, to name just one, and even pipes on sale. I was on the hunt for a chocolate shop but came across the 'Fudge Kitchen' and thought it worth a visit having enjoyed traditional 'tablet' a few days earlier. I must admit that the Fudge Kitchen is a new experience but apparently they have been hand-crafting their fudge since 1983 using a recipe that dates back to 1830. When we visited the team were making a batch of fudge on their marble table which always impresses me. There are over 20 flavours to choose from, all cut in thick mouth watering slices weighing approximately 175g. Buy by the slice or go for the deal.
The Fudge: Chocolate Walnut - As mentioned they hand-craft their fudge in small batches using no preservatives. Ingredients include: sugar, corn syrup, fresh whipping cream, natural flavourings, colours and a little salt. Well you didn't think it was going to be healthy! They even have a Dairy Free range that uses soya cream instead of whipping cream.
