Hello. I want to buy some traditional crumbly fudge (rather than the smooth creamy stuff like Thorntons do). Anyone know some that's easily available - from a supermarket or website with good delivery rates? Thanks.

Thornton's butter tablet

Its tablet you're looking for, or traditional fudge, though that is rare to buy in a shop these days. I make it, and everyone loves it

If you live anywhere near Lincoln they have a fantastic home made fudge company at the top of the hill near the castle. Bought some on a trip there last year. 'Twas beautiful

Thomas the baker do lovely fudge
Also sainsburys do some in a box called 'little treat' or some such-it is delish grin

You need Penrith tablet. It's the best. Don't know if you can buy it on line but I promise you it's exactly what you're looking for

I hate soft fudge, I think it's more a 'caramel'. I too love crumbly fudge and often make my own, if you google 'South African fudge' you will get good crumbly recipes.

Lidl do a nice butter fudge which is suitably crumbly and Tesco finest salted fudge is nice too.

Aldi do it. Cheap as chips and so nice you can eat a whole box (then probably have some sort of sugar fit but it's bloody lovely none the less).

Came on here to say Lidl also. Delicious crumbly fudge, the maple syrup is particularly nice.

Yes hopping it's still there I think. There's a stockist in my local town in south lakes. I love it!

I walk past penrith toffee shop every day on my way to Booths !
I used to live in a house that backed onto the toffee shop and the smell was divine.

if im buying, I'm a fan of Burnt Sugar fudge, especially the sea salt version. Tablet is lovely but it's not the same as crumbly fudge - tablet has a harder/firmer/dryer texture.

Homemade crumbly fudge beats them all though. grin

Tesco All Butter Fudge (in a yellow box) is of the crumbly ilk, and is in my opinion nicer (as well as cheaper) than their Finest one with salt. Also like Burnt Sugar and the Lidl 'Deluxe' ones.

Bloody hell my teeth are hurting just reading this thread. I used to love crumbly fudge as a kid smile

Just ordered £25 worth of fudge and toffee from The Toffee Shop in Penrith ( P&P was HUGE)
Hope it's as good as I remember
