The Rich, Warm Nectar of Phat Fudge

 Portable snack power. 

It doesn’t taste like carnival fudge, so don’t expect it to taste like carnival fudge, because it does not. This is something else entirely. Chocolatey but serious.

Even with this clarification, you may still say, “This doesn’t taste like fudge!” And I will close my eyes and shake my head, gently.

What’s in the package is fudge, though: chef Mary Shenouda’s Phat Fudge. Fudge, all grown up and asking after your well-being. The ingredients list: organic grass-fed butter, tahini, cacao, ground coffee, turmeric, cinnamon, sea salt, maca, raw honey, vanilla, and cayenne. (See? It is more serious.) The taste? Buttery, chocolatey, tongue over coarseness, satisfyingly so.   

Personally, I slather it onto apple slices, or eat it straight out the squeezable packet with a tiny spoon meant to stir sugar into an espresso. FYI: Shenouda swears it works as a hangover cure, too.

Available in Original, Coffee- and Honey-Free, and Spicy Vegan formulas (the last of which makes great use of sesame butter, coconut butter, coconut oil, and coconut nectar) at over 30 retail locations across the United States, or at
