THE TOFFEE SHOP
The Toffee Shop is an independent store based in Penrith, Cumbria on the edge of the Lake District. Since 1910, The Toffee Shop has been dedicated to producing the world’s finest handmade fudge and toffee, with the secret recipe carefully transitioning through 6 generations, applying intense levels of security.
Junction 40 on the M6 is an unusual place to find a shrine but this is where thousands of pilgrims leave the motorway to travel the few miles to Penrith. However, fudge addicts flock here from all over the world because, until recently, this was the only place to buy it.
Would you believe that there is a fudge so good that strong men weep if deprived of it and otherwise scrupulous people creep through darkened room at dead of nigh to steal another morsel!?
