Yes, the iconic frosty chocolate whale with the “crunchies” (which by the way have a secret recipe that is kept in the company vault) turned the big 4-0 this year. I figured this weekend we are going all 70’s for the Rewind 70’s Labor Day Weekend and Fudgie is right outta the 70’s!
Carvel’s crazy character (and who can forget the voice that was used for the commercials?) was actually created for Fathers Day. The slogan was “For A Whale Of A Dad” and it went over very well in 1977. So well, that Fudgie has been swimming along the Ben and Jerry competition just fine.
More than 50,000 Fudgies are sold per year!
