We Won't Budge from this Fudge: Anita’s Gifts and Things in San Carlos

katya | Jul 13, 200705:02 PM    

The boyfriend won a pound of fudge here in their monthly drawing. So we stopped by the other day to claim the fudge, buy some greeting cards, and have a look around. Anita's has a large fudge and candy counter (full of truffles and other goodies), and two rooms of gift items. There are lots of gift sets - perfect in particular for babies (pastel stuffed animals galore) and visitors (there are lots of local food gifts).

The owner is super nice and is generous with the fudge samples. All the fudge is made new daily. We chose three flavors to make up our pound of fudge, and it's definitely some of the best we've ever had. We couldn't resist the dark chocolate walnut fudge (you can never go wrong with dark chocolate). The maple pecan fudge was so yummy it reminded me of the pecan pralines we ate nonstop in New Orleans. Even though weren't not always peanut butter fans, we had to get Anita's chocolate peanut butter fudge which was soft and delectable.

Anita's is only open Saturdays for the near future. The sign outside says that that's the case because of a family emergency. Only being open one day a week and running a fairly empty shop makes me worried about the livelihood of this gem of a store. Eat at Speederia Pizzeria across the street, and then be sure to stop by Anita’s to get some fudge.
