With National Chocolate Chip Day happening at the end of May and National Fudge day in June, we have decided to bring you a series called “North Shore Sweet Tooth”, introducing you to two of our favorite businesses in Grand Marais for anyone with a sweet tooth looking to celebrate these two candy-inspired holidays.
Kicking off our series is Beth’s Fudge & Gifts!
Sitting near the corner of Broadway and Wisconsin Street in the heart of downtown Grand Marais is a picturesque blue building that will take you back to childhood memories of soda fountains and candy stores. Inside, you will be greeted with walls of gifts and collectibles, homemade pies, and, best of all, freshly made fudge in over 30 unique varieties.
This is Beth’s Fudge & Gifts; a family-owned and operated shop that has been bringing joy to the hearts of Grand Marais visitors since 1984 with free samples of their delicious fudge. Originally opened by Beth Kennedy in 1984, the store is now owned by her son, Danny, making it a second-generation North Shore business. Some things in the store have changed over the years, but one thing has remained the same; the fudge.
Sea Salt Caramel, Maple Bacon, Chocolate Explosion, Chewy Pecan Praline, and Chocolate Mint Swirl are just some of the varieties to choose from. All of the fudge is made in-house to ensure their fresh and unique flavors using the family’s original recipe. Beth’s Fudge & Gifts is in the top 5 selling fudge shops in all of the Midwest and for good reason. The fudge is great and the friendly atmosphere will keep you coming back year after year.
