St Ives based confectioners, Copperpot Originals, have launched a new quintessentially Cornish fudge flavour: Clotted Cream Fudge. Makers of classic confectionery; the latest addition is a true taste of Cornish nostalgia.
The new flavour – a step away from their traditional butter fudge recipe – was driven by a love of cream teas and a desire to create a product that reflected the rich heritage of Cornwall.
Made using Rodda’s Clotted Cream an authentic, local cream gently baked until it’s thick, unctuous and thoroughly dollopable, Clotted Cream Fudge is a sweet, crumbly and creamy treat.
Commercial Director Mark Brian says: “Clotted Cream Fudge is a new direction for Copperpot Originals. Our traditional recipe is butter fudge, however as our business grows we wanted to create a product that we felt reflected the rich heritage of Cornwall and to add to our flavour library for future recipes.”
He continues: “It was important to us that we used Rodda’s clotted cream – they’re known as the Keeper’s of the Cream after all – to make our Fudge. Clotted cream is the key flavour and Rodda’s are family business, with over 120 years’ experience making a consistently excellent product.”
Copperpot Originals Clotted Cream Fudge is a delicious taste of Cornwall; the smooth savoury taste of clotted cream combines with mouth-watering sweetness to make an indulgent, crumbly melt-in-your-mouth texture.
The new flavour will be available online with delivery to UK and Europe. The product is naturally gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians.

Our Cornish Fudge made in St Ives is gluten free and full of deliciousness. We still use our original family recipe to make the most luxurious Butter Fudge in a copperpot. Our copperpots now are slightly larger in scale than our first batch when we began in 1978, but nevertheless we keep the same values of excellent quality and classic confectionery taste. Expect crumbly, butter-sweet fudge that reminds you of summer holidays by the sea.
