The Fudgery, Banff (Canada) by Bureaucrat

With the glorious late summer sun, the Lawyer did the touristy thing and decided to amble up and down Banff following our dinner at Tooloulou's. There's a couple of confectionery shops in Banff - and one of them is The Fudgery.  It's a narrow shop that has it's diabetes-inducing wares displayed by the window... taunting, tempting and teasing you to come in and be like Charlie Bucket.  If the visual display doesn't get you, then the oh-so-aromatic perfume of roasted pecans and caramel will definitely draw you in.

Inside, you'll find a range of fudge on sale (sold by per 100 grams), bear claws, toffee and candy covered apples and a range of biscuits decorated with a lot of chocolate, sugar and nuts.  We chose the pecan butter fudge.  A soft but chewy nougat slab, smothered in smooth fudge and absolutely covered with roasted pecans.  It's tooth-achingly sweet and sinful but we couldn't stop eating it.  It would have been better had we had a cup of tea to temper the sweetness.  And, dang it, we're on holidays, and everyone knows that holiday calories don't count.

You're inner child will love this place but your dentist may not.
