Deep in the heart of the Lake District, the new year is set to get that much sweeter with a new handmade fudge shop opening in Keswick.
Gina Riley is opening a Roly’s Fudge Pantry in the town, the first in the county of Cumbria.
While her first shop in Chester opened four years ago, Gina has a long history in the fudge business.
Her father originally founded Roly’s Fudge from an old family recipe, making the first batch of Roly’s Fudge on his kitchen table with a copper pot bought from an antiques shop.
“I have always loved Keswick since moving to Chester and have been keeping my eye on a location coming up for 3 years now,” says Gina. “I’m looking forward to spreading the word of Roly’s Fudge up in the proper North. Keswick is also super good for cycling so when I am not at work I will be in the hills riding my bikes.”
The new shop at Keswick will bring proper fudge to the Lake District and to those who live in and visit the national park.
