It’s good to be different. In fact, for Original Murdick’s Fudge on Mackinac Island, it’s downright delicious to be different.
One of the things people tell us over and over again is how they appreciate that we don’t use additives in our sweet treats. All flavors of Murdick’s famous Mackinac Island fudge are handmade with all-natural and gluten-free ingredients, many of them come to us from Pure Michigan companies.
Take, for example, the additive lecithin. Many confectioners do include this soy-sourced ingredient for various reasons, noting that lecithin acts as a natural emulsifier and flavor protector in chocolates, hard candy and other related products.
We choose not to use it, and not necessarily because it’s bad for you. It’s just that medical experts really aren’t sure of its effects, and, of course, one can’t always be sure of the sources of soy. Many nutritionists note that the main problem with soy lecithin is that it’s derived from soy beans, which are widely known to have one of the highest pesticide contamination levels of any crop.
In our kitchens, less (or none at all, in this case) is always more!
Enjoy these Sweet Summer mouth-watering photos from our Mackinac Island fudge kitchens.

Had my first Murdick fudge last summer (2014) and have had to order more through the mail. Best fudge I have ever eaten, kind of addictive! We are looking forward to another trip back to the Island and will definitely stock up on more fudge than we need.
Wow! That is so neat to hear, Carolyn! Glad our sweets could turn you into an Original Murdick’s Fudge lover! Come back to the island … an our online store for more fudge … soon!
