May's Candy has been in business continously for about 137 years and it has the best fudge on the island. They still use all the best quality ingredients they always have and their fudge tastes like it. Full range of flavors but they added caramel this year and it is my new favorite. You can't imagine how good this tastes... More

We asked around to a few locals who had the best fudge on Mackinac Island and their overwhelming response was Murdick's! We couldn't agree more! We bought fudge from 2 other places before we asked around and was incredibly impressed by their prices and selection. Their fudge was by far the creamiest and smoothest!!

We stopped here for a fudge sample and ended up buying a combo box of fudge and also some of their wonderful candies. The service was great and so was the price and I hear they are the best on the island. The vanilla fudge is to die for!!

I think this is the best fudge on the island - seemed creamier. There are lots of other options here and the cheapest bottle water.

We bought fudge from Mays and it is the best fudge I've ever had in my life. It was so smooth and creamy, kept you wanting to one more piece. They were very nice in the shop and they gave a free little bag of peanut brittle with each purchase. That's the only place I'd go back to.
