I’m always hopeful when it comes to fudge

I like to travel a lot. This past year, my travels have sadly slowed down a bit. I love going to big international cities. I also like going to small towns. Those I have been traveling to more this past year. I’ve been to Solvang (a dutch town in California), Palm Desert and Temecula to name a few.

I have a weird habit when I travel to these towns. Well, it’s not weird in general. In these small towns on my way out from them, I inevitably stop to buy fudge. Many people do that. Thus, that’s not the weird part. See, here’s the thing. I don’t like fudge. Often fudge comes in numerous varieties of chocolate. And, I am not a chocolate fan. I prefer lemon, lime and tarts. Despite that, I still stop and buy fudge. Yes, they have maple and walnut flavors and those overall are good flavors (in my view). But there’s something about fudge that I just can’t stomach.

Despite all the reasons to not buy fudge, I go ahead and buy it. Often more than one. Why? Because I have hope. Fudge reminds me of my hopeful side. Each time I buy it, I think that maybe this will be the time I like it. I tell my son all the time, it is easy to try something once. But it is more important to try it twice. And, with fudge I try it over and over again. Because I’m open to life’s possibilities. I’m thinking I should start a new fudge line of products that come with a fortune cookie or a hallmark card with positive messages.

This weekend I am off on another small town adventure. Let’s see what the fudge brings me. And, may the fudge force be with you.

  1. Sorry to correct you, but Solvang is Danish which I think is quite a bit different in many ways from Dutch. Not that I would necessarily know personally, but I do believe there are historical and cultural differences.
