National Penuche Fudge Day is observed all over the United States on July 22. Penuche fudge is a candy made using brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and milk. It is majorly found in New England, where pecans and many other nuts are used in the recipe. It is popularly called brown sugar fudge candy in the Southern part of the United States. Penuche fudge differs from other fudges because of the brown sugar, as most fudge is made using white sugar. Brown sugar gives a flavor of butterscotch and maple syrup, making it a favorite for many. This fudge has traveled around the world, and people around the world enjoy it. So celebrate the day with England’s favorite, i.e., penuche fudge.
“Everyone needs fudge, Hildy. It’s how God helps us cope.” – Joan Bauer
History of National Penuche Fudge Day
The history and origination of National Penuche Fudge Day remain anonymous. Penuche fudge is believed to be originated from Portugal and attained its popularity in New England during the whaling period in the mid-1700s. These candies traveled to Hawaii through whaling ships and are still found in candy shops on the Island. Back then, it was locally called panocha or panuche in Hawaii. In there, penuche was made as fudge as well as icing. But penuche was a stable fudge of New England.
