Fudge, scrumptious treats on track at Whistle Stop Sweet Shop

Fudge, gelato and even ‘Grits Bits’ are among the lip-smacking treats at Whistle Stop Sweet Shop at 104 Main St. in downtown Madison.

Around the ceiling, a train track pays tribute to the Norfolk-Southern Railroad. “Every child asks me to turn the train on. It’s magic,” Crumbly said.

Whistle Stop has an ever-changing assortment of sweets, always with 9 to 12 flavors of fudge. Crumbly makes traditional rich, dark chocolate fudges filled with pecans and walnuts, along with blends of amaretto, mint and orange.

Crumbly’s offers peanut butter fudge and “Tiger Butter” with peanut butter “swirled though vanilla fudge and drizzled with chocolate.” Chewy praline has pecans and caramel in vanilla fudge.

“Crimson Velvet Fudge tastes better than red velvet cake,” Crumbly said. Other choices are chocolate-caramel, sea-salt fudge; chocolate-dipped pretzels; truffles; pralines; divinity; and pops with fudge-dipped marshmallows.

“We’ll be glad to give a sample,” Crumbly said.

Whistle Stop is introducing Madison to gelato, or Italian ice cream, in seven flavors, including red raspberry sorbetto; carrot cake with cream-cheese frosting; and mint chocolate chip.

Sweet-and-savory Grits Bits and hot-and-spicy Buffalo Nuts offer a different twist.

Beverages include several coffees, teas and hot chocolate with flavored syrups — even chocolate-dipped spoons and spiced cider.

Whistle Stop also has no-battery toys, like skip ropes, train whistles, jacks and yo-yos. Children like the hard candies, jawbreakers, sour belts and block candy resembling LEGOs. Christmas ornaments are personalized for free.

Her husband Chris has worked at NASA for 23 years. Their sons are Preston, a Bob Jones High School senior and Clayton, a Madison Elementary School fifth-grader.

Lynn acknowledged hard work by Chris, Clayton, shop employee Crystal McBrayer, Imogene Odom, Clark Odom and Melodie Unger.

Whistle Stop’s hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 256-325-8838, send email to whistlestop@knology.net or visit whistlestopsweets.com.
