About - Blackthorn Foods Melting Pot
Our aim is to make the best fudge around
Blackthorn Foods is a family business based in Belfast in Northern Ireland. We specialize in the making of award winning handmade fudge. Three sisters Cathy, Jenny and Dorothy spent 18 months researching the market, endless hours over the stove and finally in 2004 Blackthorn Foods was launched.
We pride ourselves in producing a high quality handmade fudge made in open pots in the traditional way. Unlike many commercial fudge manufacturers our range of fudges are produced in small batches, hand beaten, hand cut and then wrapped. This gives our fudges a unique taste and texture that wins awards year on year.
We manufacture an extensive range of gluten free flavours. All our flavours are natural, for example we use a real Jamaican rum in our Rum & Raisin fudge and not a flavouring. Our range of fudges are available in a selection of pack sizes. Ideal for the gift market, trade, wholesale, retail and corporate customers. We also make a range of own label fudge and bespoke flavours for many recognised customers.
If you thought you couldn’t eat fudge because of all the dairy ingredients, think again! In 2015 we launched a range of Non Dairy, Soya free and Gluten free fudges.
The fudges are available in four flavours and have a creamy smoothness which allows Vegans and those with special dietary requirements to indulge without having to compromise on taste.
