Kids at the Shoppe
We absolutely love children! We are a family business that is proud to support families! Most of us have kids of our own. When Anna and Allen started The Fudge Shoppe they lived upstairs with their family. What a sweet place (literally) to grow up. Their kids (Leslie, Susan, & Steve) continued to grow in the Shoppe and all work full time making candy. THEIR kids even work here (Adam & Leanne, and Dana did too). It’s really a beautiful thing to have 4 generations making the same delicious chocolates and candies we’ve all loved for over 50 years!
We love seeing a child’s reaction when they enter the store. Whether it’s the first time or their 100th, their faces light up and their eyes are filled with wonder. From the bright gummi candies to the animal shaped chocolate moulds, the kids feel like they’re in "Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory". Some run towards the shoestring licorice while others stand in awe at the big lollipops on the wall.
It’s hard not to want to touch everything (but we understand that happens). We really do love interacting with the kids that we meet in the store and having conversations with them. Sometimes Rich will even crouch down and talk to them about making sure they just look with their eyes (which is a good reminder for even us adults, too)
We really do hope you feel like family when you’re visiting us. This Thursday, April 26 is Bring Your Kid to Work Day. If you are bringing your child to work with you, stop by and visit us! Have your child tell us what you do and they’ll receive a chocolate lollipop on us!! Here are some pictures of our children visiting us at work! Hope you enjoy!
