The Lincolnite Tries: Fudgestuff’s marmite and Unicorn Poop flavours

Fudge with chocolate coated bacon too!

A Lincoln couple created a new fudge company in lockdown with  over 40 quirky flavours including milk chocolate marmite, Jägerbomb, Old Fashioned, and the best seller of ‘Unicorn Poop’.

Elliot Daley, 30, and Rebecca Dowling, 27, started planning the idea for their company – Fudgestuff – after making homemade fudge as gifts for family and friends for Christmas 2019.

The couple started working from their home kitchen alongside their full-time jobs – Elliot was an activities co-ordinator at a care home until six months ago, while Rebecca worked in the NHS training ward staff how to use medical devices.

A peanut butter pretzel flavour was also launched after a competition won by a local woman called Kelly. So naturally Fudgestuff called it ‘Peanut Butter Kelly Time’.
