Today in National Fudge Day! I'll take a piece of peanut butter and chocolate for breakfast!

You like nuts in your fudge? I do! I am sure you have had to choke down some terrible Mackinac Island fudge just because it comes from our state.

How to celebrate: Buy, eat, and share fudge.

I had never heard the term "Fudgie" before. The Urban Dictionary defines it as:

A tourist to the northern lower, or eastern upper peninsula of Michigan, especially the Mackinac area. Often these tourist are from lower parts of Michigan, and are usually on vacation "up north". The name fudgie comes from the fact that many of these tourist like to spend lots of time in the many fudge shops in northern Michigan. Locals are generally not fond of fudgies, as they seem to have no small town driving abilities, and can sometimes be snobby or annoying. fudgies are identifiable by bright clothes, and the presence of cameras around their necks and the use of fanny packs. also, the use of shoes and sock at wholly inappropriate times, such as on the beach and the pronunciation "Mack-in-ack" are dead giveaways.

You don't have to use your blinker there! what the hell is he doing?

Calm down, its just another fudgie

My wife once told me about a case in which a fudge shop owner up north took to disliking a particular Fudgie. He told a judge, "I didn't like him. So, I punched him in his fudgie face." We still laugh about that but LOVE FUDGE! I don't care if I piss off some snobby fudge shop owner.
