Peter Birch - The Original Manx Fudge Factory


The 'Original Manx Fudge Factory' makes over 21 flavours of Manx fudge, including the delicious Chocolate Orange, Cherry Bakewell and the Island’s favourite, Manx Cream and Butter. There are 6 different flavours of Manx toffee including the smooth and creamy Manx Butter and Cream Toffee and the rich dark Manx Treacle toffee.

Most products incorporate the Island’s premier rich and golden butter, and the Islands thick and creamy double cream.

They are the only makers of the famous Manx Knobs, which have not been made on Island for over 40 years and are still made by hand in the old fashioned way. There’s the Old Grumpy Manx Knobs, which are old and grumpy because they have been forgotten for 40 years, the Buttermint Knobs who are the happy Knobs as they enjoy going to the seaside, and not to forget the Fruity Knobs which have bursts of fruit flavours. Last but not least there is the Isle of Man Racing Knobs.

Alongside fudge and toffee they also make a range of handmade artisan chocolates in a range of boxes and bars, which include unusual and conventional flavours such as Mint with crystallised spearmint leaves, ginger, apricot and walnut, smarty pants, mini mallow and naughty fairies.

A range of Fudge Factory products can be purchased from the Mostly Manx store in Douglas as well as online  and around the island. Alternatively you can visit the Fudge Factory store in Ballasalla.
