The Fudge Pot
~ 1962 ~

Famous For: Creating chocolate confections and helping create some of the famous Mars candy bars we know and love today.

Founded By: James Dattalo, current owner Dave Dattalo’s father, in 1962.

Fun Foodie Facts:

  • Dave’s father and great uncle helped develop the 3 Musketeers Bar and Dave’s great uncle also helped develop the Milky Way candy
  • Inside of each Cocoa Bean there are about 40-50 cocoa nibs.
  • 99% of candy stores do not make their own chocolate!
  • The Fudge Pot buys their chocolate from the Blommer Chocolate Company, which started here in Chicago. If you drive on 90/94 and you get a strong smell of chocolate, that’s all from Blommer.

 

Our Recos:

The chocolate covered strawberries are out of this world delicious. And they are called the FUDGE Pot after all, so you should come back and give their famous fudge a try.
