Gulf Coast Fudge is handmade the old-fashion way from small batches of the finest ingredient. It's slow-cooked in a copper kettle using an original recipe that dates back to the 1800s.  It is hand-poured and cooled on a marble slab table before being whipped into a loaf and individually sliced right before the eyes at the Shell Factory & Nature Park location.  In addition to the over 40 flavors of fudge sold, handcrafted fudge bonbons, chocolate dipped treats as well as hand-rolled soft pretzels, fresh-squeezed lemonade and Big Olaf Amish ice cream are available.
