Fortnum & Mason Fudge

Thursday, 15 December 2011
I had Mandi of Find Me a Muse come round for lunch at my place for our weekly catch up session. It's more a case of giggling and laughing non-stop while stuffing ourselves silly. It was also an excuse for me to molest her new Isabel Marant Willow sneakers and ogle at her amazing sweaters, also by Isabel Marant.

She brought along a present for me. A bad bad idea. She was incredulous to discover that I, a foodie who visits London like it's my second home have never ever walked into Fortnum & Mason. Sure, I'd ordered from them before but I was too much of a coward to attempt a visit to the famed store in the weekends. Unless I'm armed with pepper spray, spikes on my elbows and helmet to brave the crowds, I wouldn't dare to take a step inside. Mandi insisted I had to try their handmade fudge. Resistance was futile after the first bite. A single slab probably has more than a million calories. Apparently, it was made using a traditional recipe  where the mixture is still boiled in copper pans to this day. Whatever. Hubby, Lil L and I ravaged the box and nearly started World War 3 fighting for the last piece. I've just placed an order for more. As gifts. If I managed not to gobble them up before wrapping them up.

  3. Oh boy, Fortnums is my favourite shop in London. If I ever gets terminal illness, I'm only going to eat F & M food.

  4. Ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaa.... Glad you enjoyed the fudge! Oh to be a fly on the wall for the family squabbles. It's the same with us. We all eat as much as we can before someone else polishes off the box!

    Word of advice, don't even attempt to brave F&M at this time year. It's a breeding ground for serious shopper rage and bodily harm!
