May's is the arguably oldest fudge shop on the island, and in my opinion the best. It is not a chain, so a ferry ride or mail order are your only options to enjoy May's. Fudge is smooth and creamy, not as sweet as some...More

Sampled my way thru some other fudge shops & chose May's hands down. Not as sweet...creamier....natural flavors come bursting through...and the super understated amazing fact that it's still family owned & staffed since 1930's.. Delightful to talk to granddaughter working in one of the shops....More

We asked around to a few locals who had the best fudge on Mackinac Island and their overwhelming response was Murdick's! We couldn't agree more! We bought fudge from 2 other places before we asked around and was incredibly impressed by their prices and selection....More
