Roly’s Fudge Pantry

Roly’s Fudge Pantry Totnes first opened it’s doors in 1995 and we’ve been making fresh fudge in Totnes ever since.  Following an old family recipe passed down by the founder’s grandmother, using our beautiful copper pans we are able to create our delicious crumbly fudge.  Make sure to come in for a taster of one of our many award-winning fudge flavours such as the traditional Vanilla Clotted Cream or one of our seasonal specials such as Raspberry Pavlova and Christmas Pudding!  We also stock our Roly’s Fudge Sauce and our Vegan/Lactose Free fudge, just ask for more information
