Oh, my–>  Major discovery here!

While doing my regular grocery shopping at the Skagit Valley Food Co-op yesterday, something caught my eye on a high shelf in the baking section…

Something about peppermint, fudge and fat free REALLY does it for me.

I went in for a closer look…

Vegan?…Check!  The fruit-sweetened part intrigued me.

My first instinct was to get the peppermint flavor, because I love mint combined with chocolate.  But, I decided to buy the classic flavor first.

The texture was nice and thick…

The Classic Fudge flavor is utterly delectable.  The fruit juice sweeteners provide a subtle background flavor.  They are noticeable, but not overpowering.

Today I went back for the Peppermint Fudge flavor.  The fruity note definitely hides behind the peppermint.  Delicious!

Check out the Wax Orchards website for their story, their Fudges (I need to try the Orange Passion flavor!), their Berry Syrups, and their Gift Box.  It’s also nice to know that these guys are from my home state of Washington.

I plan to eat this stuff one spoonful at a time, right out of the jar. 🙂
