Absolutely Fabulous! Fudge Kitchen Pops-Up in Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge …

Serendipity in action …

Who could have foreseen that a chance visit to our Cambridge shop, minutes before closing time, would leave one customer so blown away by our fudge and by the wonderfully attentive and engaging staff there that it would result in a pop-up in the world’s leading luxury retailer? Who could have known that the pleased-as-punch-punter was, in fact, Jose Collado, the Food & Wine Retail Manager of Harvey Nichols, who would later invite us to take up residence in their famous Foodmarket?

“When visiting Cambridge I had the opportunity to try some of Fudge Kitchen’s products and was really impressed,” said Collado.“From the packaging to the quality of the product, Fudge Kitchen produces really premium edible gifting – perfect for Harvey Nichols customers. We are thrilled to be welcoming them to the Fifth Floor Foodmarket to host a pop-up during the festive months, and have no doubt our customers will like the products as much as we do.”

And they seem to be doing just that! Since setting up on 5thNovember, Harvey Nichols’ discerning customers are being equally drawn in by the famous Fudge Kitchen experience; watching demos of authentic fudge making, drooling over the kaleidoscopic rows of creamy slices in the Fudge Bar, sampling a-plenty and listening to the Dan the Fudge Man’s cheerful banter. Even MD, Sian Holt, has been spotted in a Fudge Kitchen pinny, serving up slabs of handmade fudge.

“We are so thrilled to be part of the Harvey Nichols Christmas experience,” said Holt. “It is a wonderful opportunity to introduce the capital to the original slab fudge that is made in our shops and Harvey Nichols is a perfect fit for Fudge Kitchen – a brand committed to quality, excellence, service and innovation. Just like us!”

The pop-up will run every day, to shop hours, until 23rdDecember and stocks a selection of products perfect for Christmas gifts, from Drinking Fudge selection boxes, including a dairy free option, to Fudge Making kits and our ideal stocking filler, luxury caramels and brittles. Plus … a Fudge Bar. Yes, you heard right …!

Fudge Bar none …

The pop-up offers a pick-and-mix selection of sixteen flavours of our original ‘slab’ fudges, made to a traditional 1830’s core recipe, using the authentic “slabbing and loafing” technique on marble counters, that is the secret to that dreamily creamy core. The Harvey Nichols line-up will include best sellers Sea Salted Caramel, Belgian Swirl and Classic Butterscotch Fudge, a range of festive flavours, including Mince Pie, Rum & Raisin, Christmas Pudding, Chocolate & Orange; and a selection of vegan-friendly flavours, so that no one misses out on the fun.

Harvey Nics Exclusive…

exclusive Harvey Nichols Festive Fudge by Fudge Kitchen

It also includes a limited edition Harvey Nichols Festive Fudge, newly invented and created exclusively for our hosts. Cooked up in our Bath shop by uber-fudgeista, Ian McCluskey, the base for this gorgeously spiced Christmas creation is an exhaustively sourced, authentic Belgian speculoos, combined with a seasonal smorgasbord of all-natural flavours including nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. As the ultimate seal of approval, it was included in the Harvey Nichols Fifth Floor Christmas press launch on 8th November. We are hopelessly honoured by all of the above. But, it will be exclusively sold in Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge for the limited duration of our residence, so catch it while you can …

If you are visiting London for your Christmas shopping, come and visit us on the 5thfloor and try some. And if you’re doing the rounds, or are a serial Father Christmas Grotto visitor, you’ll also find Fudge Kitchen products in those other great Christmas meccas (if that isn’t too culturally contradictory), Selfridges and Harrods.

Can we say it yet … why the heck not … Merry Christmas, everyone!
