I think I was born with a sweet tooth. Apparently if I went missing at the store, my mother would simply pick up a roll of Lifesavers and I would materialise as if by magic. Nothing has changed. I can smell chocolate at 10 paces and should you want my attention, present me with something sweet and I am all yours. (In a good way!) Fudge is the sweetest thing around, right in line before maple syrup and chocolate, so combine the three and you have a treat that is all sweet!
