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.

The Fudge Cottage has finally ‘returned home’ to The Arts Centre with the Shop re-opening on Saturday 8 July 2017. The Arts Centre was our home for 21 years prior to the 2011 earthquake events and it is wonderful to be back once again at this fully restored and strengthened historic site.

We look forward welcoming you at the new shop to rekindling past memories as well as creating new ones for people visiting the first time.

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 occasion which everyone can enjoy and cherish.

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