Best Place to Buy Fudge on the Wildwood Boardwalk

The Original Fudge Kitchen in Wildwood New Jersey
I consider myself to be a homemade fudge diva. Seriously, I make it at home pretty often and I'm always buying it when we travel, well, that is if I can find a good fudge shop!

Every time we travel down to Wildwood and/or Cape May in New Jersey, I always hit up one of my favorite shops, The Original Fudge Kitchen who has locations all over south Jersey, with several on the boardwalk in Wildwood. You'll see their signage out front and they always have a store employee out there handing out those delicious free samples!!!

One of the reasons I love their fudge is that they make & sell over 20+ varieties of creamy and delicious fudge! Just walking into their store you scan smell it and it always makes your mouth-water when you're in there. On top of that...the taste! It's rich and creamy, full of wonderful sweet tooth flavor! It always satisfies my cravings.

When we visit their shop, I always pick up a 1/2 lb. of the peanut butter & chocolate and a 1/2 lb. of the chocolate marshmallow. My hubby always selects a 1/2 lb. of vanilla nut and a 1/2 lb. of vanilla fudge. Since we are frequent customers, we joined their "free club" and got a club card that gives us $1.00 off each pound of fudge that we purchase.

Just recently they were running a special where if you bought 2 lbs. of fudge (any flavor or flavor combination), You got a 1 lb. box FREE of their saltwater taffy. I have to admit, that is just as delicious and didn't last long with us!

If you're not planning a trip to the area, you can order your goodies online and have them shipped to you, a loved one (think gifts!) or a friend. Trust me, it will be the type of fudge that you'll fall in-love with and will want to sample over & over again!

Shopping at the Schuylkill Mall in Frackville

Shopping at the Schuylkill Mall in Frackville
A few months ago we took a trip up to the Pocono Mountains and stumbled upon the Schuylkill Mall in Frackville Pennsylvania. If you're driving up to the Poconos from the Harrisburg and Hershey areas, this is about the halfway point and a great place to stop for a break.

The Schuylkill Mall is located on 830 Schuylkill Mall Road in Frackville Pennsylvania, for those of you who want to plug that into your GPS. It sits right off of Interstate 81 and you'll find interstate access pretty easy. Just follow the signs.

When shopping at the Schuylkill Mall you'll find a bunch of stores like Bath & Body Works, Bon Ton, Big Lots, Brackney Leather, Cracker Barrel, Dunham's Sports, Gertrude Hawk Chocolates (one of my favorite chocolate stores), GNC, McDonald's, Passion Nails, Radio Shack, Suglia's Pizzeria, Totally Twisted Pretzels, Urban Hairstylists, Victoria's Secret and more.

If you're staying in the area you'll find the Pearl Theatre offering up 8 screens! They're open daily with matinees, evening shows, bargain Tuesday shows for $5.00 and more. During the summer season they set up a "seasonal" drive-in movie theater in the parking lot of the mall. Gates for that open at 8pm and the movies start at 9pm.

Throughout the year the Schuylkill Mall offers up all kinds of fun events, some of them are seasonal around the holidays. You can visit their website online for a full list of vendors, events and to obtain their hours of operation & additional driving directions.

When we travel up and back to the Pocono Mountains, it's a great place for us to stop for a break. We usually grab something to eat, use the restrooms and do a little shopping while we're there.

This modern facility can accommodate groups as small as 100 people and up to 10.000 people at a time. In the past few years we've attended two sporting events and music concert at the convention center and I have to admit, it's a very nice facility with a lot of room! You can easily walk to the center from most hotels and motels on the Wildwood island.

What's really cool about the facility is that it's right on the Wildwood Boardwalk. You can spend your day lounging around on the beach or seeing some of the nearby sights, and then during the evening you can attend a show or event. The white sandy beach is right out back along with the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.
