Instagram post 18026708614277451 My dad absolutely loved drinking coffee and every now and then I would spoil him with a cappuccino when I was free during the hectic summer months. Before he passed, it was pretty obvious to combine our famous family fudge recipe and my most popular flavored brew, Love Potion #9 together. It has become a favorite for both candy and coffee lovers alike. Available again this season at the shops and online! .

Instagram post 18245872447052764 #MackinacIsland is a beautiful place that definitely lives up to all the hype. It’s one of Michigan’s top tourist draws, and for good reason. Visiting this lovely island, just a 20 minute ferry ride from the mainland, is like stepping back in time. Cars were banned on #Mackinac in 1898 and haven’t been allowed since, so island life revolves around horses and bicycles. #VictorianArchitecture predominates as well, making for incredible scenery at every turn. I truly loved it there. #MyMackinac #MackinacIslandLife #MackinacIsle #PureMichigan

Instagram post 17870035991014916 What is Mackinac Island’s biggest export?
—
Mackinac Island is iconic for its Victorian houses, horse drawn carts and bicycles. But what really makes the island tick, drives its economy and has secured its place in Michigan tourism, is the fudge.
—
This island, with only 500 residents, is home to more than a dozen fudge shops ready to serve the 1 million annual visitors. On peak summer tourist days, visitors collectively buy over 10,000 pounds of fudge per day. To keep up with this intense demand, the island imports 10 tons of sugar and 1 ton of butter every week.

Instagram post 17877986515902866 Traveling to Mackinac Island which sits between Michigan and its “Upper Peninsula” is like traveling back in time: no cars or mechanized transport are allowed on shore, it’s main harbor is filled with sail boats including those arriving on the annual Chicago Yacht Club Race, and its cobble stone streets are dotted with white picket fences, Victorian painted ladies and old timey fudge shops. And yet still, despite all these anachronistic embellishments of a bygone era, the island is still more progressive on issues of structural racism than Founders Brewing. Cheers!

Instagram post 18142500721112990 Our trip to Mackinac Island was around sometime end of September and by that time, fall has already started in the Midwest. After we passed the light house tower while onboard starlinemackinacislandferry, right before our port on the island, we had this amazing view of the Ste. Anne Catholic Church surround by some of the greatest fall colors I’ve ever seen. Every since I took this picture, I was very excited to post it. I’ll post a close up of the church later as I get more into talking about the Island!

Instagram post 17859284003513231 True story: I looked so happy with my bloomfieldcreamery ALMOND BRITTLE & MACKINAC ISLAND FUDGE ICE CREAM that a couple strolling along the sidewalk asked me what I was eating 😅🍨

Y’all have to try this flavor! 🥇 The vanilla ice cream is silky and fragrant, the almond brittle is crunchy and nutty, and the Mackinac Island fudge is chocolatey and decadent 🍫💕
