It all began in a tiny shop in Ketchum/Sun Valley, Idaho... way back in 1972. That's where (and when) Tom and Sally Lowe opened their first fudge shop. As a college student, Tom got his first exposure to the art of gourmet fudge
making on Michigan's Mackinac Island.
Ten years, thousands of pounds of fudge and two young sons later, Tom and Sally packed up and headed for San Diego. It was there in 1981 that they opened their doors in Seaport Village, the new 14-acre theme mall in a historic section of the city.
Ten years and many more thousands of pounds of gourmet fudge
later, Tom and Sally pulled up stakes again, heading north toward picturesque San Francisco. Since 1991, their new location along Pier 39 has enabled them to introduce folks from all over the world to their burgeoning assortment of incredible pleasures.
What generally draws first-time visitors in to the Fudge House is the alluring aroma of chocolate fudge
bubbling away on the stove… but it doesn’t take long before they discover the shop has far more to offer: a panoply of treats – like white chocolate fudge
, peanut butter fudge
and dark chocolate fudge
Today, after more than 40 years in the business, Tom and Sally are still as active in the making of their homemade treats as they were when they first opened up shop in 1972. Tom retains his position as principal confectioner; he manages to produce up to 350 pounds of homemade chocolate fudge
each day – all made by hand. He also makes the gourmet caramel-dipped apples
, chocolate caramel apples
and homemade caramel corn
Sally spends her days creating the other candy treats: dipped fresh strawberries, nut bark
, peanut butter cups
Over the years, The Fudge House has cultivated a loyal following; they credit the pride they take in their products with their overwhelming success. Using only the freshest ingredients and time-honored recipes, and overseeing every step of the candy-making process ensures top-quality chocolate fudge
and other homemade confections.
