No gimmicks here! “The best fudge comes from Uranus!”

By Gail Marsh
This weekend my hubby and I took a drive to Uranus. No kidding. We hadn’t planned on making Uranus our destination. At least, not until we saw the sign. “The best fudge comes from Uranus!” the billboard exclaimed. And so, all of a sudden, we were headed down old Highway 66 (Interstate 44) to the little bitty town of St. Robert, Missouri.

Just outside St. Robert is the famous Uranus Fudge Factory. Uranus isn’t really a city. In fact, another billboard cleared that up. “Uranus! It isn’t a town. It’s a destination!” It certainly is! In Uranus, you can buy fudge, of course, along with lots of other candy and snacks. Official Route 66 items are for sale as are T-shirts, mugs, and other typical souvenir treasures – all featuring the Uranus theme. Not to miss are the numerous photo opportunities, but we passed on them. Maybe next time…

You’ll get a hoot out of their website. Check it out here.

In January, on our way to Quartzsite,AZ, we spent the night at Uranus’ parking lot.

We just finished Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica, a wonderful trip with iconic stops, views and kitch along the way. But the Uranus Fudge shop is a must see. We saw the signs and had to stop, look and purchase some great fudge along with other items.
