Marmite Fudge (Chocolate Falls, Scarborough) [By @Cinabar]



We've been off adventuring in Scarborough, but of course we still have been keeping our eyes open for Foodstuff Finds. Sure enough on the sea front in Scarborough sits a confectioner with an amazing array of goodies within. Chocolate Falls predominantly sells fudge, and it is creative homemade fudge too using different chocolate bars and interesting goodies. There is every flavour you can think of, from Toffee Crisp to Orange Aero. There are also a few flavours you might not have thought off too... like this Marmite Fudge.
I’ve tried the official Marmite chocolate which even as a Marmite lover I found it bizarre and garlicky, and so I was a little bit wary of this fudge but knew I had to give it a try.
The fudge is an ominous black colour and sat of the shelf next to a jar of Marmite just so there is no mistaking its main ingredient.
I cautiously tried a slice, and was pleasantly surprised. The fudge was lovely and soft, and gave a lovely initial hit of sugar and butter followed by the distinct Marmite taste. The Marmite wasn’t too strong and its yeasty tones were blended perfectly with the sugary fudge flavour, and produced an amazing result - sweet Marmite. Thankfully they haven’t messed with the flavour and there is no weird garlic taste which the official chocolate bar suffered with. Beyond all my expectations this was really clever stuff, and the bitey taste of the Marmite just worked as a fudge variety! Both the shop and the fudge are really worth checking out if you are in Scarborough, and made me wish I had bought a few other fudges to try. The theory being that if they can make Marmite fudge this good, I suspect every fudge bar in the place is absolutely divine. :-)

I don't know, that sounds like a recipe for ruining fudge to me.
