A confectionery company based in the Cairngorms believes Forres is the sweetest place to open its first new branch outside of Aviemore.

The Kilted Fudge Company opens its doors at 22 High Street today (Saturday 13 April) offering its own range of fudge, tablet, marshmallows, chocolate and ice cream.

The company, started five years ago by Chris Lewis and Steve Bruce, has been making and selling its fudge and tablet from its kitchen shop at Dalfaber Industrial Estate in Aviemore.

Director Chris Lewis said they looked at a lot of towns before settling on Forres.

“Forres is a historic town. It’s situated really well, has a good catchment area, and the feedback so far has been really positive from the people that know we’re coming here.

“We’ve got a good customer base over this way. We do a lot of events in Moray and Aberdeenshire.”

Chris added that he was really excited to have a new ice cream range.

“It’s all going to contain our fudge. I think my favourite is going to be the millionaire’s shortbread. And we’ll also have a vanilla flavour for those that just want something plain.”
