‘Fudge For Troops’ by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory store in Canal Park is running their annual “Fudge for Troops” promotion throughout the month of September to benefit U.S. Military Personnel from the Duluth area who are serving overseas.
For every customer who purchases one pound of fudge at the store, they will send a free matching pound of their hand made fudge to our troops overseas.
In an interview with WDIO News, the store manager Libby Bolen said her parents started this tradition over twenty years ago and they continue to send over 500 pounds of Fudge to troops yearly.
“We’ve had troops come in, people come in and say, I was deployed years ago, and we got your fudge, and it was a hit. And we’ve gotten several thank you notes from troops. It’s just really sweet and it makes us feel like we’re doing this for a real reason”.
They are located at 395 South Lake Avenue, a franchised gourmet chocolate store specializing in store made fudge, handmade chocolates, caramel apples, dipped strawberries, and gift boxes of candy.
