Handmade Tradition

At Ryba’s Fudge Shops, the art of handcrafting creamy, delectable fudge transforms into a delightful public spectacle. Here, delicious new flavors are born, filling the air with the irresistible scent of freshly made fudge, drawing in visitors from near and far. Fondly referred to as ‘Fudgies,’ tourists eagerly gather to indulge in Ryba’s signature treats in the iconic pink box. Our grandfather, Harry Ryba, was known as the “Fudge King” of Mackinac Island, a legacy passed on to our father, Victor Callewaert, who in turn taught us. Today, as we prepare the next generation to continue our family tradition, every moment spent at Ryba’s promises to be a sweetly unforgettable experience, ensuring that our legacy of crafting the creamiest fudge on Mackinac Island lives on.

About Ryba’s  Visit Ryba’s

With the heaviest of hearts, we share the passing of our dear friend and master fudgemaker, Ed Turbin.
If you’ve been to Mackinac Island, chances are you’ve seen Ed through the shop window, pouring a kettle or flipping fudge. Ed was more than a fudgemaker; he was a showman, delighting in giving an extra fun fudge flip for a crowd and answering questions from fascinated onlookers.
We are profoundly grateful for 43 years of friendship and camaraderie. Ed’s hard work and unwavering support were instrumental in shaping Ryba’s Fudge Shops into the beloved establishments they are today and our lives are all the richer for having known him.
Our hearts are with Ed’s family. Please join us in celebrating the extraordinary life of Ed Turbin by sharing your memories with them here. 💕

💖 This gets me in the feels every time I read it 💖⁠
Dear Ryba’s, I grew up in a poor family, so it’s not surprising we went on only one vacation during my first 18 years. The one vacation we took was to Mackinac Island in the mid-1960s. We loved Ryba’s Fudge Shop because it allowed us to taste samples before we bought fudge. Also, 1 was given the enclosed postcard by a Ryba employee, and I put it in my childhood scrapbook. So many times, I’ve fantasized about returning to Ryba’s for my free 1/2 pound of fudge. Imagine that! Now, I am 70 years old and live far away in Seattle. I went online today to see if by any chance, Ryba’s Fudge still existed - and smiled when I saw there are four Ryba’s Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island! Yeah for Ryba’s enduring success. I return this postcard (dated 1965, almost 60 years ago) to you, thinking you might have a memory book or board, hoping it generates a smile. Blessings, Dorothy
