We have been coming here for years for the best fudge. It is homemade by the family. It is consistently the best tasting fudge I have ever had. I always make a point to drop by and pick some up when in Estes Park.

We bought the chocolate, pecan (like large "turtles") that were so good we went back another day for more. Also tried the huckleberry ice cream which was a dissapointment, not a lot of huckleberry flavor.

So many flavors to choose from. Some very unusual flavors. Great service. Nothing like having an ice cream while visiting a local downtown and this place was yummy.

Disregard comments by some about service. We've never experienced a problem and love their deserts. Favorite is their homemade Huckleberry Ice Cream!

I don't recall if they sold in larger quantities. I do remember that they try to use local ingredients.
