About Marsdens Confectionery

Marsdens Confectionery was set up in 2001 by Alex Marsden-Smedley, and is based in Berkshire. Marsdens Confectionery is a family run business and the award winning fudge and chocolate truffles are handmade following Alex's Grandmother's recipes. We use only the finest ingredients without any artificial flavourings or additives. All our fudge and truffles are made in small batches therefore maintaining the highest standard. We take great pride in producing confectionery that is unique and delicious and are committed to quality.

Alex first started making her award winning fudge as a child at the age of 14, as presents for family and friends. In 1988, when she was living and working in London, she objected to buying very expensive chocolate truffles to give as presents and, having trained as a Cordon Bleu Cook, thought she would try and make some of her own. After getting married and having children, Alex started doing a small amount of catering which included making fudge again for her friends.

Very quickly they began to ask if they could buy the fudge and chocolates to give away themselves and Marsdens Confectionery was born.

Now we supply some 30 shops in Berkshire and the surrounding counties. Our fudge is sold everywhere from delis to farm shops, as well as at small country markets and fairs. It is also sold directly to the public at a number of Charity Christmas Fairs throughout the autumn, and of course, online.

We hope you enjoy our fudge as much as we enjoy making it, and we always love to receive your feedback.


Award Winning Fudge

Our award winning Vanilla Fudge is made to an old and traditional recipe without the use of additives and artificial flavourings. Whilst it has a smooth, creamy melt-in-the-mouth consistency, it is also delightfully crumbly and has often been likened to Scottish Tablet. Vogue Magazine described the Vanilla Fudge as "second to none"!

Marsdens Confectionery multi-award winning fudge makes a fabulous present for anyone, or just a greedy treat for yourself! We can also produce custom orders for weddings, birthdays or any other special occasion and even corporate events.

Quality Fudge

Mardens Confectionery uses British Butter and the highest quality ingredients and there are no additives used; our ethos ensures that you not only get a product that's made to the highest of standards, but also one that is completely natural and, most importantly, guaranteed to be delicious.

Our award winning Vanilla Fudge made with Madagascar Vanilla Extract is the most popular, and for the chocolate lover we make another delicious, award winning, Chocolate Fudge. Our Ginger Fudge and Peppermint Fudge are also hugely popular and use only the purest flavours. For those who love Bailey’s Irish Cream our Bailey's Fudge is a must - all the flavour but without the alcohol - a superb and wonderful fudge. Our unique Lavender Fudge is made with organic lavender flowers and makes an original, delicious product, whether you're a lavender lover or not!
