My mother likes to make fudge as do a few of my extended family.  It seems to be an activity they do more as the fall and winter month come upon us.  I have a feeling this shop in Missouri will give them a run for their money. If you love sweets, I suggest you seek out Old Village Mercantile Caledonia.  It may be worth it.

It's an experience for the whole family. 2 floors with Old Fashioned Candy, Award Winning Handcrafted Ice Cream, Fudge, Coffee House & Antique Gallery, Gifts, and so much more.

There is freshly made Amish fudge that is a must to try.  Do you go with the classic chocolate? Maybe they will have peanut butter when you are there, or cookie dough or even a dreamsicle option.  I think this girl wants the peanut butter.

Now obviously you can get more than fudge.  I mentioned there is over 600 kinds of candy available.  Taffy anyone? May be more appealing in the Spring, but it will keep so stock up.

Perhaps you would like something salty OR sweet? Who likes popcorn? More than 12 dozen flavors and some unique ones too.  Pizza? Pickle? Banana? Chocolate? Yes you can get them all.

This place is also famous for its ice cream!  They often will have unusual flavor combinations that get voted on by the customers.  Certainly flavors are available year round, and some are seasonal.  Waffle cones are also made fresh daily.

Not that long ago, I wrote up a story about 10 great places to get coffee in Missouri.  You can read that article HERE.  Maybe I should have included this place.  50...yes I said 50 different coffee flavors are available to you, hot or cold, and you can buy in bulk.
