WHAT IT IS: Greeting cards in the form of window boxes filled with fudge and other confections.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: The very high quality of the candies.
WHY WE LOVE IT: In this digital world, it’s an inexpensive alternative to picking “the right gift,” far more appreciated than an e-card and not that much more expensive than buying a fancy card in a card shop.

.Fudgemail: Fudge Or Candy Gift Combined With A Card


CAPSULE REPORT: Who would have thought that something called Fudgemail would be named a Top Pick Of The Week? A riff on the Candygram, it delivers tasty confections with a message. In this era of e-cards, it puts your personal touch on a celebratory occasion.

Fudgemail allows you to send a gift card—actually a 5"x7" card-box (see photo on the next page). You choose the cover art and the confections that go into the box, and write your greeting. There are dozens of sweet options to fill the box. The four varieties we tried were excellent (fudge, chocolate-covered Oreos, bark and caramel-chocolate pretzel sticks).

There are sugar-free confections as well. All of the candies are also sold by the pound if you want them for yourself.

The back of the Fudgemail box proclaims this Unconditional Guarantee: “If you are not completely satisfied with this product, please return ingredients label for a full refund or replacement.” Not a chance! We want more!

The only fly in the fudge is that the company website is very “homemade” and doesn’t begin to convey how good the products are. The pictures don’t look appetizing and the site looks too elementary to inspire confidence.

Trust us—it’s good stuff and worth your trouble to figure out what you want to order. For as little as $12.95 (which includes shipping), you can mark an occasion by sending someone a card with a delicious piece of fudge, peppermint bark or their confection of choice.
