6. Rolys Fudge Shop
LOCATION: 22 Fore St, St Ives TR26 1AB
You can't walk along Fore St without smelling the delicious fudge cooking in Roly's Fudge shop. It lures me in far too much! My absolute favourite is their Sea Salt fudge which has contributed to my ever expanding waistline over the last year or so! It's sweet, salty, crumbly and buttery and incredibly more-ish.
7. Myrings Of St Ives
LOCATION: 55 Fore St, St Ives TR26 1HE
8. Fudge Kyst
LOCATION: 48 Fore St, St Ives TR26 1HE
Fudge Kyst make their fudge using an open flame and wooden paddle, which gives their fudge a unique and delicious flavour.
LOCATION: 64 Fore St, St Ives TR26 1HW
The shop that moves into Ferrells shoes needed to be good. Flapjackery is great! Okay it's not exactly sweets and fudge, but they sell the most delicious, buttery flapjacks which are as treaty as any sweets!
If you like St Ives you will love playing it!
