I will never forget when I first heard that people eat fudge from Uranus. I was scrolling social media clearly looking for some dopamine when I stumbled across an image from a friend of a beautiful, bold neon sign singing the delicious joys of the Uranus Fudge Factory located in Uranus, Missouri. Aside from fudge, that neon beauty also promised the excitement of a sideshow museum.

Writing About Uranus

I was so excited to learn about fudge from Uranus that I immediately sat down at my computer and started writing about all that this odd little roadside stop in Missouri has to offer. Admittedly, I had a little fun when describing it,

Admittedly, I'm a little shy about Uranus since I've never personally experienced it myself but if you are a fan of fudge, there's nowhere better to get it than Uranus, and it turns out, they'll even pack your fudge for you too! The Uranus Fudge Factory and General Store ships all over the country so you can try it without making the trek but personally, I want to stuff my face with fudge in Uranus! I smell a road trip! ...or maybe that's just the fudge from Uranus.

Uranus Has Expanded

It was July 2021 when I first learned of Uranus and sadly, I have not had the opportunity to visit yet, but imagine my excitement when learned that they have expanded Uranus and you can find it in Indiana too!

Uranus Is Open in Indiana

Uranus Indiana can be found in the little Hoosier town of Anderson, Indiana, located just about an hour northeast of Indianapolis. They are open seven days a week between 8 am and 9 pm and inside you will find many of the same tasty and delicious fudge options, as well as oddities and novelties, found in the original Uranus Fudge in Missouri.
