Carlye Harper, of Fudgin’ Around, in studio, February 8, 2018
Carlye Harper, owner of Fudgin’ Around, was in studio Thursday morning to talk to WPKY about her business and her current Valentine’s Day sales.
Carlye told listeners that she began her business, Fudgin’ Around, about a year ago after she lost career opportunities due to an injury. She stated that her family has always had a fudge machine and so she decided to start making fudge and sell it. She approached Calico Cottage, the maker of the fudge machine, to use their recipes for her fudge, so most of her fudge is make straight from their recipes. However, she is willing to experiment with recipes or create new ones if she has a special request. She will sell to businesses that are interested in selling her product and also sells directly to individual customers. She sells fudge for $8.50 a half pound and $17 a pound, and also sells truffles, peanut butter balls, individual cheesecakes, and more. For Valentine’s Day she is offering a few sales, everyone who buys something for the holiday will be entered to win a $20 gift card to be used at any time on any item, and a dozen chocolate covered strawberries are on sale for $20. Carlye also mentioned that she sometimes runs a sale on fudge, buy one pound and get a fourth of a pound free, which can mixed and matched.
Carlye then mentioned that they offer 13 to 15 flavors at a time and sets up a few days a week in String Beans so that orders can be picked up. She will also gladly do special orders. You can check out all the flavors she offers on her Facebook page, Fudgin’ Around. She also stated that they will be doing deliveries for Valentine’s Day, including deliveries at the schools and some local businesses.
