CRITICS, UPSTATE | Candy for all Occasions
2211 Concord Pike, Wilmington, 654-9171
At Candy for All Occasions, the buttercreams and the chocolate-covered pretzels sell briskly, but Sue Ford’s homemade fudge picks up major steam in the summertime and around Christmas. Standards like vanilla, chocolate and peanut butter are most popular.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Seaside Country Store
1208 Coastal Hwy., Fenwick Island, 539-6110
You haven’t lived until you’ve tried the chocolate praline fudge at Seaside Country Store. It’s made at the counter where all can watch Rick Frostad blend all that butter, fresh cream, sugar, and seasonal flavors such as cranberries and walnuts. After creating some 36 flavors over nearly 40 years, the most popular is still “good ol’ plain chocolate,” says owner Amy Vickers. Peanut butter ranks second. The peanuts are freshly ground.
