Owego fudge shop brings treats to Waverly
An Owego fudge, chocolate and candy store has brought its goodies to Waverly's Susquehanna River Archaeological Center.
Fuddy Duddy's Fudge recently began offering its handmade fudge, truffles, chocolates and desserts in a portion of the Broad Street center's gift shop. The area has been dubbed the "Candy Cave," said Susan Williams, owner of Fuddy Duddy's.
In addition to the shop's fudge, crafted in kettles every day by a full-time fudge maker, the SRAC's selection also includes chocolate-covered pretzels, marshmallows, apples and other snacks, as well as a selection of candy including old favorites like wax bottles, Swedish Fish and gummy bears.
Williams said she and Deb Twigg, the SRAC's executive director, have worked together in the past. Twigg approached Williams about the possibility of offering some of Fuddy Duddy's items in the gift shop.
The company is a "great fit" for the center, which sees many children and families come through its doors, Twigg said.
The Candy Cave doesn't represent all of the offerings at the Owego store, which also sells trail mix, cheeses, dips, popcorn and other savory items, Williams said. However, people will soon be able to order gift baskets at the Waverly location, she said.
In bringing their products to the Valley, "we were looking for Waverly to have access to specialty chocolates they might not otherwise have," Williams said.
Fuddy Duddy's supports the SRAC's goal to provide high quality at a reasonable price, Twigg said. "We're really proud to have brought them here," she said.
The partnership, Twigg added, is "something we know is a good thing. It's just another reason to come to Waverly. Great things are happening here."
