Whenever we are on Mackinac Island we always get fudge and peanut brittle. Look no further than Murdick’s. Their fudge is so creamy it melts in your mouth. The Peanut Brittle made with Cashews is unreal! It’s not cheap, but they always have some sort of special going on where you can get a few bars of fudge and a box of peanut brittle that won’t destroy your bank account. The servers are always super friendly too and explain all the choices and specials. I love coming here and highly recommend!

I wasn't planning to buy any fudge but every time I walked past Murdicks I had to stop and watch as the staff poured the hot bubbly chocolate onto the marble slabs. I decided to check out the flavors and was offered a free sample, fresh off the marble. It was amazing! Needless to say I left with a large box of fudge and happy tastebuds.

This is always a last stop before I get on the ferry to head back to the mainland. The fudge is GREAT and the staff is outstanding. Always friendly and knowledgeable. If you have time, stick around and watch them make the fudge right before your eyes.

I placed 2 orders for fudge XMas presents, the invoice had the correct ship to addresses, but the label created for FedEx had both shipments going to me. Tried calling and emailing Laura to correct this, NO response despite multiple attempts, so I paid and extra $15 to have FedEx change one of the ship to addresses. Ok, I'm fine with that. Fast forward a few days, the changed address was supposed to be delivered on the 23rd, then FedEx changed the status to pending, after hours on wait, FedEx said the barcode was unreadable, so they called the shipper for direction. Laura/Murdick's requested the fudge be returned to Mackinaw Island, vs to the address less than 20 miles away, both Murdick's and FedEx having the desired ship to information. I decided to send my shipment to my friend, another $18, plus delivery on the 30th, nice XMas present, NOT!!! The WORST customer service ever, ever.

All these problems had NOTHING to do with the pandemic, just a poorly run company. Do NOT buy from these clowns!!

Sorry to have to post such a bad review, but I have no idea why this place has so many positive reviews.

Was on the island yesterday and decided we HAD to buy at least one piece of fudge; how can go to Mackinac Island and not buy fudge? Decide on this one because their sign said something like ""oldest fudge on the island or the "original" or something like that.

Got the chocolate with Pecan, and it was not good at all! Had not chocolate flavor to speak of, pecans were bland and had no flavor as well, and the fudge was not smooth at all. Was like eating pure sugar and had a course "sugar particle" texture to it.

At $11 for one slice of fudge, the price was crazy. I know fudge is expensive no matter where you buy it, but this is kind of crazy. It might be different if the fudge itself was the best I every had or something, but it is one of the worst!

Would not recommend

I place 2 orders on December 13th, 2021. One order arrived great and the gift was well appreciated. I had a larger order that is somewhere lost. I have the order number, the charge to my credit card, so I know it was received. All it ever said was, "in process." Nothing about shipping, expected date of arrival, nothing! I started inquiring about this second order a day after I received the first order. I received what looked like an auto-response that each order was being hand made and be patient. Christmas came and went, now I sit the week after and they have literally GHOSTED me. Calling their number tells me to email them, emails go unanswered. I messaged their social media sites. I even contacted a sister store in Massachusetts to find out it is related in name only and individually owned.
Their "sister" store told me that they get a lot of complaints on this location and that once they have your money that I would be lucky to hear from them again. I have disputed the charge and will let the credit card fight it out. Needless to say I had 3 gifts for my staff that they never received. I will go to their competitor and order instead. Going in may be fine, this was done as a mail order and they customer service has been abysmal.

I was excited to see so many flavors and this shop was the only one where I found cherry. (You would think they all would have cherry because it's Michigan after all, but no) We chose the cherry & the turtle flavors.

The excitement was shortlived. The cherry was so dry it crumbled as we were slicing it. You could not really taste cherry at all. Very disappointing.

The turtle was fine and was more creamy than the cherry but but not the best fudge we have had.

Perhaps we just came on an off day. We had seen good reviews but we cannot join the group that praises this fudge.

Fudge is one of the things you look forward to on Mackinac. Nobody had seconds so that says a lot.

The staff was friendly, the fudge makers were smiling, and the fudge...well OUTSTANDING! We got the triple fudge espresso. One slice was $10. You can only buy slices, which made me sad because I wanted two halves...but COVID makes it so they can't. Regardless...my husband and I ate the entire piece. So much flavor and not so sweet you want to be sick. YUMMY!

Oh so yummy fudge. Like that you can ship home fudge. Sent to the family watching our dog while we were enjoying Michigan. We also bought more to share with other friends. Fudge is delicious, perfect for gifts.

We went to a wedding on Mackinac Island and they had a fudge tasting bar with toffee, taffy, fudge and Carmel corn! Neat addition to a wedding. Free boxes of fudge to take home too.

Our favorite treat stop on the island.

Born and raised in MI, I've had my share of fudge from all over the state. Murdick's is still the one I cannot stop eating until it's gone. The peanut butter has actual peanut butter flavor and the melt in your mouth texture puts it over the top! I hope they never change whatever they do to make the PERFECT fudge, because even though I'm not anywhere near there, I cannot wait for the online orders to arrive! Thank you Murdick's, you're the best!!!
