What is Mackinac Island’s biggest export?
—
Mackinac Island is iconic for its Victorian houses, horse drawn carts and bicycles. But what really makes the island tick, drives its economy and has secured its place in Michigan tourism, is the fudge.
—
This island, with only 500 residents, is home to more than a dozen fudge shops ready to serve the 1 million annual visitors. On peak summer tourist days, visitors collectively buy over 10,000 pounds of fudge per day. To keep up with this intense demand, the island imports 10 tons of sugar and 1 ton of butter every week.

The motherf*ing KBS, added with Mackinac fudge coffe and maple syrup. 

This is a stunner of a stout. 💣 The classic KBS is one bastard of a stout, but I don't know, this one is right up there, maybe even better. I really enjoyed this one. Besides the greatness of the beer itself, it's also in a good price range so that the mortals also can afford it.

▪️Beer: KBS Mackinac Fudge
▪️Brewery: foundersbrewing 🇺🇸
▪️Style: Stout - Imperial / Double Coffee

And once again I made more than one state food - this time I bring you a sweet treat for dessert after the pasties! Once again inspired by entirely.elizabeth.s , here is some Butter Pecan Mackinac fudge!

True Mackinac fudge can be found on the popular Mackinac Island where it is made on huge marble slabs and often sold in thick slices. This fudge is made in the old fashioned manner and has no chocolate, but plenty of buttery toasted pecans and a splash of vanilla for flavor. I will post my recipe on the Michigan highlights on my page if you’d like to try to make it too!

True story: I looked so happy with my bloomfieldcreamery ALMOND BRITTLE & MACKINAC ISLAND FUDGE ICE CREAM that a couple strolling along the sidewalk asked me what I was eating 😅🍨

Y’all have to try this flavor! 🥇 The vanilla ice cream is silky and fragrant, the almond brittle is crunchy and nutty, and the Mackinac Island fudge is chocolatey and decadent 🍫💕

Have you been to Mackinac Island? Located off of Mackinaw City, Michigan, Mackinac Island is a beautifully landscaped wonderland full of fudge and relaxing times. Cars are banned on the island, and you can get around by bike or carriage. 

Though it is spelled Mackinac, it is pronounced Mack-In-Aw. The difference in spellings between the city and island are a result of the British renaming Mackinac to Mackinaw so that it more clearly matched how the word was pronounced, though the island maintained its French spelling.

Both words originate from the Ojibwa word Michinnimakinong which in English means “great connecting sound fault land or place”.

Fresh off the plein air easel of Grand Hotel. “Grand Hotel Blue Ceiling.” Capturing the color off this ceiling fascinates me! In person that part of the painting glows with the relatively neutral colors surrounding it. It is that color to fool the birds into thinking it is the sky so they don’t nest there. While I was painting I heard a guy tell someone it was to fool spiders... I’m not sure if that is true!?🤣

Available through Mackinacs’s Little Gallery. Dm me with questions.
