As we were walking through the winding back streets of st ives, we came to a road with a multitude of little boutique shops, we took a wander down and came across ‘Myrings Fudge & Rock shop.’
This is a very traditional little slice of Cornish history, a family run business that has been open for the last 30 years and gave us our childhood back one sweet at a time. It’s not on the coastal road but it isn’t far, and we found it by just taking a wander through town. It’s a pleasant walk and one I recommend,
just take a wander around….
Well as we walked into this beautiful emporium of sweet treats (which sent me into a little bit of a frenzy, saying oh I remember those). They had everything you can imagine, and of course, I wanted every single thing in there, but we made a b-line for the rows and rows of fudge.
Stacked up was thick bars of the deep caramel colored fudge, with the multitude of flavours such as maltster and shortbread inspired flavours. Hmmmmm, the smell as you get up close to the lengthy cabernet was intense but not overpowering, it was so sweet and definitely made my mouth water. So what flavours did we go for hmm…. well after antagonising over what we should get we went for the traditional cottage cream, triple chocolate, Malteser and shortbread which was delightfully crumbly. They all tasted very nice, and I’m quite sure we could have eaten the other numerous flavours to given as half the chance. It was clearly very well made, not at all grainy of dry as some can be, I would recommend taking a visit to this little place.
Value for Money
So we were kinda on a little bit of a mission anyway, were in Cornwall. We absolutely have to buy pastries, scones, and fudge!
So as we wondered around st ives little back streets, we peered at the prices of things as we went through. Myrings in our eyes had the best selection of fudge on offer and at the most competitive price that we could find.
Well as I mentioned already, the shop was full to the brim of sweet treats that could possibly please the fussiest of people. If I had an endless budget and not a disapproving mister lee there with me, could have easily bought a whole lot more. She says quietly whispering to herself, so I don’t get that look now. The aroma, the friendly service and the sheer nostalgia of all our childhood sweets on offer make for a lovely place to wander around.
