About Us

For decades, The Fudge Cottage has been handcrafting the finest artisan fudge from a traditional family recipe.

Fresh New Zealand milk and cream are combined with carefully selected natural ingredients to create confections that satisfy the senses and bring a smile to the lips of young and old alike.

From small beginnings in 1990, the business quickly grew to become a local icon and ‘must see’ for visitors to the city. Many years later, The Fudge Cottage is proud to still be a local family owned business specialising in unique affordable handcrafted artisan and personalised confections suitable for any event or occasion.

Located at Christchurch’s historic Arts Centre in the central city, we always look forward to welcoming back previous customers as well as introducing new ones to the thrill and excitement that is the Fudge Cottage Experience.

All items crafted by The Fudge Cottage are gluten free. We also stock a wide range of other traditional old fashioned yesteryear confections as well as sugar free, dairy free, and gluten free items for people with special dietary needs.

Our whole family loves the creaminess and addictiveness of the sweets at Fudge Cottage. Everything is absolutely delicious. I love baileys and ginger fudge but the kids love caramel fudge and the cute pink pigs. Can't wait until we can buy it in OZ.
