Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Fudge Day

Though a staple of English tourist shops, fudge actually originated in the US during the late 19th century.

Fudge is a type of sugar candy that is made by mixing sugar, butter and milk, heating it to 240 °F (116 °C), and then beating the mixture while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, creamy consistency. 

The first use of the word fudge is in the early 17th century. Its origin is probably an alteration of obsolete fadge ‘to fit’. Its early use was as a verb in the sense ‘turn out as expected’, also ‘merge together’: this probably gave rise to its use in confectionery.

In the late 17th century the verb came to mean ‘fit together in a clumsy or underhand manner’, which included facts or figures being cobbled together in a superficially convincing way: this led to the exclamation ‘fudge!’ and the noun fudge.
