So where did the luscious confection known as fudge come from? Its precise origin is shrouded in mystery, but certain things are well-known.

Fudge is an American invention, generally believed to have been produced by accident while another candy such as toffee or caramel was being made. Because it was a mistake, it was named, “fudge,” which was defined in the 1800’s as “nonsense.” 

Pinpointing when fudge came into existence can’t be done with certainty.  But the best evidence is in the archives of Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY. In a letter written in 1921 by Emelyn Battersby Hartridge, she tells of purchasing of a box of fudge for 40 cents a pound in 1886 in Baltimore, Maryland.
