The magic of Christmas at Montville’s Fudgyboombah
Who would have thought you can make a fudge that tastes exactly like Christmas pudding?
Greg Jones – also known as Mr Fudgyboombah – samples some of the Montville sweet store’s very popular home-made Scottish Tablet, an old fashioned fudge that is attracting interest locally and world-wide.
Well that old son of a gun Mr Fudgyboombah AKA Mr Greg Jones and his talented wife Gail have done exactly that.
In 2010 they made their first batch of Christmas Pudding fudge cakes, a 350 grams fudge cake that looks like a pudding, it even has the thin layer of custard on top.
They made the first batch in 2010 and there was more demand than they imagined and every year since then the orders come in earlier, in fact there are already orders this year!
They say the proof is in the pudding so they gave one to friends, the husband is not a fudge fan, so when his wife saw him enjoying a huge piece she told him it was fudge and he said no this is Christmas pudding, it tastes exactly like that anyway.
The vast array of delicious home-made fudges and nougats on offer at Montville’s Fudgyboombah makes it a wondrous and magical place to visit in the Hinterland.
