Mella's Fudge

Mella's Fudge started when Mella, a young school-girl in Bantry in West Cork, started making fudge for the local sweet shop. Fast forward fifteen years, and having dipped her toes into the worlds of video, interior design and cheesemongering, she decided to chuck all that in and dig her teeth into her original love, confectionery, and Mella’s Fudge was born.

Mella's Fudge is now based in Clonakilty. Their fudge is available in over 70 shops dotted all over Ireland.
