Mary Swetich was the queen of fudge making. She was the one who created all of the 30 plus flavors we offer today. As time went on, she perfected her fudge making skills and turned her fudge into an art. She loved coming in to make it after a busy weekend. Throughout the years she won many awards for her fudge. Mary made fudge for the Calumet Mercantile until she passed away In 2017.
Joyce Bausano took over the kitchen in 2017 and has continued the tradition of fudge making. She had big shoes to fill. As the years have gone by, she has perfected her own techniques and has kept the tradition alive. We do believe Mary would be proud! The fudge tastes and looks almost the same as if she was still behind the kettle.
