After 10 years in retirement Chuck and Gin Brew have taken the business back. The Carmel Corn and Fudge are back to the original recipes. In my opinion they make the best Carmel Corn and Fudge in Northern Michigan. I was very happy to be able to buy their Carmel Fudge. It was just like it used to be 10 years ago!

The man sold us a $10.00 bag of stale caramel corn from an old tin under the table. He would not replace the caramel corn or talk to us about it.

We always stop by Alice's for our fudge and caramel corn. The clerks are friendly and the taste is always consistent year to year.

Just walking in was enough to soothe your soul as you breathe in sweet butter, salt, caramel and candy goodness. The shop is laid out simply, with a nice selection of treats from taffy to corns to chocolates, even syrups. Staff is welcoming and helpful.

My parents regularly drove us into Mackinaw City for special treats during summers at our cottage beginning in the mid 1950s. Alice was always in the shop then, and she made the best fudge and karmel korn bar none! We never ever considered patronizing any other fudge shop.

Our favorite has always been the caramel fudge and caramel chews. Through the years we collected various versions of her refillable plastic karmel korn tubs, which were filled to overflowing with this magnificent confection.

In recent years, the shop lost its way after Chuck and Ginny sold the business. Quality was poor: the caramel chews and fudge grainy and totally flavorless. My family sadly stopped going.

Then, this May 2015, we noticed a sign in the window that said Chuck and Ginny were back--and so were the original candy recipes we came to love.

I am happy to report that the candies and korn are as good as they were beginning in 1951. My grandchildren will now be able to enjoy the same treats I did when I was a child. Thank you Chuck and Ginny! You were sorely missed.

After several years with terrible owners, the old owners are BACK! Clean store, friendly employees, wonderful candy corn and fudge.

My family and I went last year over the 4th of July and the store was in disrepair. We were looking for great caramel corn and caramel fudge (the one and only location in Mackinaw that has caramel fudge without nuts). They were out of the fudge and the caramel corn wasn't great.

This year, we decided to give them another chance. The store was clean and completely reorganized; I was warmly welcomed by several employees who were all very friendly and helpful; and the prices were very reasonable. Even better, the candy corn and the fudge were delicious.

A definitely must visit!

I have been going to Alice's for fudge and Carmel corn since I have been 5 years old. I just turned 50 and let me tell you, the past 5 years of my annual visit has been horrid. I have come come empty handed, but to top it all, they were open, the sign said open, but the man running the show is RUDE. We asked him to refill our bucket with cheese corn. He replied, we don't have any. We asked for caramel corn and he replied, we don't have any. No further how about... Or..... Nothing, nada, just rude and to the point. Let's just say my refillable buckets of old are now in a landfill. My annual visit to what was once a nice family run establishment has ended. Out with the old, in with the new... Hello Murdick...
