about - Three Rivers Confections, Pittsburgh, PA
Our story ...
Over its history, Fudge Wudgie has earned a reputation for creating the most luxuriant fudge, not just in the United States, but in the world.
What is our secret? Well in truth, it is no secret, because we are proud to share all of the detials of what makes Fudgie Wudgie so special.
World Class Facility
It begins with a world-class facility in the heart of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania ... the fudge capital of the world. Every package of Fudgie Wudgie is made at this single location to ensure absolute consistency from one batch to the next. The facility itself has earned the revered SQF Level 3 Certification, the pinacle for food quality and safety.
Our next "secret" is quality ingredients. We start with real, whole cream, never condensed milk. Then we add fresh butter, one pound at a time. We use real vanilla extract, never immitation.
For our chocolate varieties, it is always 100% Imported Belgian Chocolate, there is no substitute that meets the Fudgie Wudgie uncompromising standards.
From there a wide variety of additional ingredients make each flavor unique and special. For example, real blueberries in our Blueberry Cheesecake FUDGE, fresh Pecans in our amazing Pecan Turtle FUDGE, strawberry preserves in our Chocolate Covered Strawberry FUDGE, real pieces of coconut in our refreshing Pina Colada fudge. The list goes on and on and on.
With everything else in place, it is time for the magic to begin. We do not settle for employess, or workers, or even cooks, we rely on old-world artisans to bring these amazing ingredients together into a fudge that you will be proud to share with friends and family, as well as enjoy as a personal indulgence.
These professional craftsmen personally blend every batch of fudge ... by hand! They know precisely how to adjust cooking times and temperatures to deliver an eating experience second to none. If it does not meet their approval, the Fudgie Wudgie will not go on the package.
