Fudge maker enjoys sweet success
Published at 14:34, Friday, 23 August 2013
A COCKERMOUTH sweet shop owner’s fudge is now on sale at National Trust properties across the North West, thanks to its popularity at the town’s Wordsworth House.
Julie Watson, of Cockermouth Sweet Shop, on Main Street, produced rosebud and forest fruits flavours after an approach from Wordsworth House.
The fudges proved so popular at the National Trust property that she has now become supplier for another four trust properties in the North West.
They include Hill Top, near Hawkshead, and Sizergh Castle, near Kendal.
Julie said: “I developed the fudges around a Georgian theme and I am over the moon with the response.
“Now I am supplying to the National Trust properties it has opened more doors for me.”
Julie, who is also supplying fudge to the Lake District Wildlife Park, Bassenthwaite, took over the business from Lorraine Anderson-Cole in November.
Sian Lawson, retail supervisor at the National Trust shop at Wordsworth House, said: “We had to have something that linked in with the town and we have had people tasting it when they have visited the house.”
