The Gunflint Mercantile has the best fudge and such a cute shop! Not sure which flavor to try? A fudge kabob sampler is a great way to try a few flavors. I loved the Maple Bacon. I also love my soft North Shore hoodie.

I had bought fudge, jams and syrups in the store in December of 2012 for the first time. I was so impressed with the high quality and wonderful taste of the variety of fudge and the delicious jams and syrups that I bought, that I have also ordered online several times in the past few years, some as gifts, other...

If you like your chocolate dark and everything else spicy, then the dark chocolate cayenne fudge is for you. It's got some sass! My wife loved the cookie dough fudge and the kids loved their chocolate and mint chocolate too. Good value too! Great place to find dessert after grabbing a pizza at Sven and Ole's!

Great selection of swoonable fudge at this place! It is made fresh and there are several flavors for sale. Check out the free sample, that is what got us to buy a bunch. Candy selection is also retro and fun. Staff friendly and happy.

Gunflint Mercantile is the only place on earth with the best fudge and truffles. The owner's sparkling personality is a big bonus!

A trip to Grand Marais or to the BWCA isn't complete until you pick up some fudge here! And in the fall they have wonderful caramel apples too. Great selection, made in small but delicious batches and Chelsea will even mail fudge to all your favorite people too! The caramel apple sea salt is my hands down favorite...!

There is such an old-fashioned feel to this small town shop. It has a great selection of locally made goodies, old fashioned candies, ice cream, and the cutest aprons ever! The homemade fudge and truffles are to die for! Made with the best ingredients and in so many interesting and tasty flavors!! We stop here every time we are heading... More
