  • About

    Established in 1982 by the Owens Family, The Fudge Factory is the original Dahlonega family owned candy business, specializing in homemade confections. The Fudge Factory has become a favorite stop for local citizens and visitors to our community. For more than 34 years, the owners have combined quality ingredients and time-tested recipes to create an outstanding product line.

    Our retail store is located on Dahlonega's Historic Square at the Corner of Park Street and Main Street, directly across from the Welcome Center.

    Daily, our craftspeople make over twelve varieties of fudge, along with caramel, Dahlonega nuggets pralines, brittles, divinity and hand-dipped chocolates. Throughout the years, we have remained dedicated to the ideals established in the beginning-- the freshest ingredients combined with attention to detail in order to bring to you an unforgettable candy delight. For our old friends who have visited our store in Dahlonega, we hope your mouth waters again as you consider our list of delicacies. For our new friends, we would like to acquaint you with some of the delicious, gourmet candy favorites you will find in our shop.

    *** An important allergy note: The Fudge Factory would like you to know: All candies are made in a facility that uses peanuts and other nuts***
