I mean, they’re fudge cups! They are cups. Filled with fudge. It’s funny to think about and it’s funny to say.
When Nate’s Candy Jar sent us an email asking if we would review their Fudge in a Cup, I giggled, and said what every candy reviewer would say: absotutely!
The cups are the size of those little ice creams you would get on Hot Dog day at school. They’re like a third of the size of a malt you’d get at a baseball game. But instead of cool iced milk, you get a solid yet creamy bevy of fudge.
When I took my little goodies out of the package to take pictures it was midday, which is when I don’t tend to eat sweets. Still, I had to open one up and try it. Maybe it was the Ben & Jerry’s-like packaging or simply the fact that I was still semi-giggling, but I opened the cookies ‘n cream and dug in.
(I tasted more vanilla than actual cookies, but that’s my issue with this flavor overall: it’s more cream than cookies).
The peanut butter and chocolate is the better tasting of the two flavors I tried. The peanut butter fudge is lighter in color and swirled throughout. Think creamier yet more solid Reese’s peanut butter cup.
This stuff is yummy. I do have to say though, fudge in general is a tad too sweet for me. I like it but won’t eat a lot in a sitting. So the cup, with its top, is a nice way to manage the dessert. Eat a little, cap it, pop it in the fridge, and eat more the next morning!
Fudge Cups are a party goody bag item waiting to happen. Yet still tasty enough to not just be a novelty. With interesting flavors like Cotton Candy and Dark Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt — if fudge is your thing, this cup runneth over.

Damn! These sound way too good, and my waistline will suffer.
