NATIONAL PENUCHE FUDGE DAY
National Penuche Fudge Day is observed annually on July 22.
Penuche (Italian: panucci) is a fudge-like candy made from brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and milk. Lighter in color than traditional fudge, the flavor of penuche is reminiscent of maple thanks to the brown sugar. If you are looking to celebrate, look for this fudge primarily in New England. There they will add pecans and other nuts, especially if making a candy form of penuche. Southerners call it brown sugar fudge candy.
Of course, National Penuche Fudge Day is about enjoying the creamy sweetness of this maple-flavored treat. Whether it’s homemade or purchased from the candy shop, anyone can savor a bite or two. Don’t forget to share!
