We stopped in the mercantile as I was told they have the best fudge in town. We bought some fudge for my friends as the owner knew which kinds they liked. We came back later for some ice cream.

The owner of this shop is delightful and will remember you year after year! I've never had better fudge anywhere. The dark chocolate/caramel/sea salt fudge is amazing!

The Gunflint Mercantile has the best fudge and such a cute shop! Not sure which flavor to try? A fudge kabob sampler is a great way to try a few flavors. I loved the Maple Bacon. I also love my soft North Shore hoodie.
