114 Winfrey's Fudge & Chocolates On the North Shore, the name Winfrey has become synonymous with decadent fudge, and with good reason: Nearly 40 years after it was founded, Rowley-based Winfrey's Fudge & Chocolates still finds the family business's rich chocolate fudge to be its most popular product. e old-fashioned fudge comes in many more flavors than just chocolate, of course; there's also mudslide, maple walnut, rocky road, and penuchi sea salt caramel, to name only a few. But what sets Winfrey's apart is its dedication to creating treats that are hand cut, hand decorated, and made with high-quality local ingredients, like butter from Dunajski Dairy in Peabody. In addition to their fudge, Winfrey's makes fine chocolates, like turtles, barks, caramels, nougats, and creams. Co-owner Jill Winfrey-Pallazola is also excited about Winfrey's new "Wicked Dark Wicked Good" line of heart-healthy 72 percent cacao bars. ese "less guilty" options are just as delicious, and come in varieties such as sea salt and the "ABC" bar, which is filled with almonds, blueberries, and coconut. For the holidays, look for all this and more in beauti- fully packaged hand-selected assortments, plus holiday classics like handmade oversized candy canes, peppermint bark, chocolate-cov- ered pretzels, and eggnog fudge. Tuck's Candy Factory ere's a Willy Wonka–esque magic to get- ting a behind-the-scenes look at how candy is made, and that's exactly what visitors to Candy and the holidays go together like chocolate and caramel, so if you're searching for something sweet this season, look no further than the confections made in your own backyard. The North Shore's candymakers are like busy little elves this time of year, twisting candy canes, dipping truffles, and drizzling pretzels for all your parties, gift giving, and stocking stuffers. Tuck's Candy Factory will find if they visit the Rockport shop on Dock Square during the holidays. Each Saturday from anksgiving until Christmas, Tuck's hosts open houses that give visitors an inside look at the nearly 90-year-old candy company's time-tested recipes and techniques. Owner and third- Winfrey's has been making candy for nearly 40 years.
