With the glorious late summer sun, the Lawyer did the touristy thing and decided to amble up and down Banff following our dinner at Tooloulou's.
There's a couple of confectionery shops in Banff - and one of them is The Fudgery. It's a narrow shop that has it's diabetes-inducing wares displayed by the window... taunting, tempting and teasing you to come in and be like Charlie Bucket. If the visual display doesn't get you, then the oh-so-aromatic perfume of roasted pecans and caramel will definitely draw you in.
Inside, you'll find a range of fudge on sale (sold by per 100 grams), bear claws, toffee and candy covered apples and a range of biscuits decorated with a lot of chocolate, sugar and nuts. We chose the pecan butter fudge. A soft but chewy nougat slab, smothered in smooth fudge and absolutely covered with roasted pecans. It's tooth-achingly sweet and sinful but we couldn't stop eating it. It would have been better had we had a cup of tea to temper the sweetness. And, dang it, we're on holidays, and everyone knows that holiday calories don't count.
