If you aren’t drooling yet, you just aren’t paying attention. The deliciousness in this post is just three of many varieties of homemade fudge you can find at The Hitching Post in Aurora, Kentucky. I’ve written about the Hitching Post many times on Genuine Kentucky simply because I love it muchly. Not only is the owner one of the most colorful, warm and friendliest people in the universe, the store is filled with Kentucky food, Kentucky crafts, toys, candy, t-shirts, jams, jellies, homemade fudge, bottled sodas, homemade soap, knick knacks, gifts, Kentucky crafts, cookbooks, and so on and on.
I’ll tell you more about some of our most recent purchases in upcoming posts, but first things first…. FUDGE!
The Fudge counter is the first place I head to when I walk into The Hitching Post. I make a bee line straight for it and dare anyone to get in my way. I noticed a few new varieties on this trip and instantly got weak in the knees.
You know what a coffee fanatic I am, so you won’t be surprised to learn that as soon as I heard the words Cappuccino Fudge, I was like, “Break me off a piece of that!” It’s so creamy and delicious -with just the right amount of coffee flavor. It’s one of the most unique fudges I’ve ever had the pleasure of enjoying. After sampling a bite, my husband and I knew we had to have some to take home with us. It’s just amazing.
The fudge shown above is another of the new varieties, Salted Caramel Fudge and it’s as delicious as it looks. I’ll tell you what it reminds me A LOT of – Starbuck’s Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. Heavenly… and pretty to boot. This one would be an instant favorite with kids, although anyone with a strong love for chocolate (guilty as charged!) will find this fudge irresistible.
The Cappuccino Fudge and Salted Caramel Fudge are new flavors and each blew us away. We also bought an old favorite – Tiger Butter Fudge (shown below). We’ve been buying this particular variety of fudge since our girls were about waist high. They’ve grown past my waist now but they haven’t outgrown their love for Tiger Butter Fudge, so I bought some to bring home to them. I did… of course… take a bite first. I had to test it out for them, right?!
When you’re in the Lake Barkley or Kentucky Lake area, you simply MUST make your way to Aurora and visit the legendary Hitching Post. It’s one of the most cherished places in the entire Lake’s Region and has been for a very long time.
