While on Mackinac Island it is impossible to miss the sweet aroma of fudge wafting over the streets. For the sweetest souvenir on the Island we suggest some of Ryba's famous Mackinac Island fudge. Voted the "Best Fudge in Michigan" by the Detroit News five years in a row, be sure to buy enough to share. Can't make it back for more? Visit the website for mail order options and other delectable treats.

Very good creamy fudge in a variety of flavors. Hotel coupons do not work with specials like three pounds for $19.95 but watch out as the specialty flavors are more. Get a selection. In the unlikely event that you have a great deal of self-control, remember that fudge freezes well too. Ryba's is one of the better shops.

A self-proclaimed chocoholic that isn't a huge fudge fan? That's me. It's pretty well known that Mackinac island is known for its fudge. In her effort to convert me my daughter enjoyed bringing me samples and I was surprised when I found there is a significant difference in taste and texture. If you are of the smooth and creamy persuasion,... More

Although I have not set foot on the Island, my BFF goes every year - and I am the lucky recipient of a box of fudge from her visit. As I do not live near her, it is shipped to me by Ryba's. Fudge arrives in a box packed with a cooler bag - so although it was 85* when... More

I can't find the bike rental shop on here that must be associated with Ryba's fudge shops... but it was right next to the Star Line ferry dock and had a good selection. We got a tandem bike, two adult cruisers and two tagalongs for the kids. Good prices and convenient location. My only (minor) gripe was they first put... More

This is the best place for fudge. I have tried them all over the years. The fudge coffee is yummy too especially while sitting on your hotel balcony in the mornings.

I was here with a school group and the workers were rude and acted like we were a bother instead of customers eager to spend our money on fudge. With all the places to choose from our group left and went to another fudge shop that wanted us there!

For all intents and purposes, Ryba's does the trick. My friend and I shared ice cream delights ~ generously dipped. Friendly service.

My boyfriend and his family ate here as soon as we got on Mackinac Island. They have been voted "best fudge on Mackinac Island" 5 years in a row by the Detroit News and I stand by it!

We had lunch at this sandwich shop/fudge shop/ice cream shop on Main Street of Mackinac Island. The food and service were marginal.

After a chance meeting with 3 Girl Scouts who were staying on the island as Honor Guards for a week I enjoyed the most delicious milk shake of my life at the restaurant located at Fort Mackinac. The girls insisted that it was the most affordable and best attraction on the island and I have to say that I agree... More
