I love you guys.  

I really, really do. You’re crazy-wonderful. Crunderful. No, that doesn’t sound nice. Anyway, I love you.

The Fantasy Fudge project funded in about five hours. I have since received several emails from readers and friends laughing at me for being surprised, but honestly, it was a lark, it IS a lark, I figured I should give myself FORTY-FIVE DAYS to make it work, when, jeez, I don’t know, maybe a week would have been enough. So I love you guys.

At this moment, there are (technically) 7 kinds of fudge funded chocolate(walnut), peanut butter, maple(ginger), dairy-free and diabetic, and there’s one more in the works if the next stretch goal is reached.

I have a funny idea for a high-end stretch goal, one that will go out to everybody no matter what level they pledge at. It involves Joanne. I shall say no more. :)

I don't make (and rarely eat) fudge. (It is just too sweet for my tastes.) But you just said "Joanne." I might have to enter just for that.

My only concern is getting consumables through customs in a reasonable amount of time....

I've been sending fudge at Christmas for years without any problem!

That settles that then!

How about wonderful-crazy? Wonzy! Mmmm, fudge. Is there an October shipping option between the "melty now" and "November holiday crush"? How long does fudge remain good for, assuming it was somehow not all gobbled up in a day?

Re: Wonzy
Wonzy is pretty good. I like wonzy. :)

Actually, October really would be ideal for shipping. I might do the whole shebang over the month of October. Candy-making frenzies on Sundays, shippings on Mondays. :)

The fudge dries out slowly if left exposed to the air, but will keep for days under plastic wrap, and but if refrigerated (under plastic wrap) or frozen will keep for ages. My former agent used to make hers last most of a year by freezing it and taking out in nibbles.
