National Fudge Day: On June 16, we celebrate National Fudge Day, a sweet and delicious treat that is believed to have been a culinary accident. Legend has it that a confectioner’s mistake led to the creation of this dense, candy-like delicacy. Fudge is also historically tied to female scholars in the late 19th and early 20th century when recipes for it spread like wildfire among students at women’s colleges. So, let’s indulge in this happy accident and enjoy some fudge today!
