FAQs

How do I store Fudge?

Fudge is best stored at room temperature in an airtight container.  We strongly suggest immediately upon receiving your treats, transfer to an airtight container.  This will preserve freshness the longest.  At room temperature fudge will remain freshest the first 4 weeks, but can last 6-8!

Whether freezing or kept at room temperature, always store your Fudge in an airtight container.  This will prevent it from drying out.  (Think Rubbermaid-type kitchen containers for freezer, glass jars with silicone lined lids for counter, etc).  Even better if you let it sit on parchment or wax paper because it will cut down on any mess! Additionally, parchment or wax paper can be used to separate flavors.

Should I refrigerate Fudge?

DO NOT REFRIGERATE YOUR FUDGE!  This will dry it out quicker and possibly cause it to pick up other scents from inside the fridge (and no one wants to eat chocolate almond zucchini casserole fudge!)  Freezing fudge, however, is a great option as it thaws very nicely - or you can simply eat it straight from the freezer if you prefer a harder consistency.  Fudge will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months!

What is the best way to defrost Fudge?

Fudge will defrost completely in just a few hours.  It can be left out on a plate or in an uncovered container, or even with the cover on.  The longer it is left to defrost, the less "tacky" the outer surface will be.  Remember, Fudge can be eaten straight out of the freezer as well! So how much it defrosts is really personal preference.

What makes Trio Fudge different from others?

We get this question often, and time after time once customers taste our Fudge we get the same consistent feedback - Trio Fudge is nice and light, and not as sweet as typical fudge. Our Fudge is made to be not as dense and heavy as most fudge recipes.  This is great news because it means your belly can handle more deliciousness! This is mostly due to significantly less butter in each batch. The sweetness factor is due to less sugar as well.  Now, we're not going to try to tell you our Fudge is the healthiest snack choice or low in sugar - it's Fudge! It is definitely a sweet treat. However, Trio Fudge is for sure lower on the sugar scale than most - it doesn't leave that toothache feeling in your mouth after a bite! Lastly, we strive to be outside-the-box with some of our off the wall and fun flavors! It's not every day you see Orange Creamsicle Fudge!

Where are you located?

This is another fan-favorite question! At this time we do not operate a physical retail store.  We bake in a commercial kitchen in Waretown, NJ (Ocean County), and have a variety of ways to make our Fudge available to you! We attend markets and festivals throughout New Jersey (with a focus on Monmouth and Ocean counties but we do venture farther away!). We have our Fudge available right here online 24/7 to ship anywhere in the US, and we wholesale as well - so you might see Trio pop up in your local market or bakery!

Does Fudge have chocolate in it?

Yes!  All of our Fudge has either a Milk Chocolate, Dark chocolate, or white chocolate base.

What is Fudge made of?

Fudge is made from some pretty basic ingredients - chocolate, sugar, butter, salt, marshmallow and usually some form of dairy; in our case it is evaporated milk.   Some recipes will call for condensed milk, which is much sweeter, and then the sugar should be cut down significantly.  From there it’s free reign!  Each flavor will require different ingredients, combinations, and alterations to achieve their individual uniqueness!

Is Fudge sugar free?

Fudge is a traditionally sweet treat!  At the moment we do not have a sugar-free option.  This has been requested by some of our customers so in the future we hope to be able to offer this in a variety of flavors!  However, Trio Fudge does contain less sugar than a typical Fudge recipe calls for.

Is Fudge gluten free?

Fudge can certainly be gluten free!  Most of our flavors do not contain gluten as an ingredient.  However, a select few do contain gluten (Birthday Cake, Chocolate Cake, Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Cookie, anything with a graham cracker crust or graham cracker crisp topping) and we do not have dedicated separate utensils, surfaces, etc.  Therefore there is a risk of cross-contact with gluten across all flavors.  If there is a concern regarding gluten as a direct ingredient, please do not hesitate to contact us before placing your order to confirm your flavor selection!

Is Fudge dairy free?

All flavors of Trio Fudge currently contain dairy.

Is Fudge vegan?

At this time Trio Fudge is not vegan due to multiple ingredients.
