Today we interviewed Jeff, who works in our fudge kitchen located right above the Cork Bar on Wicomico Street. Jeff makes all of the fudge, brittles, and all of the caramel products—all from scratch!
When did you begin working at Dolle’s?
“I began working at Dolle’s in in 1984 and returned in 2012. This is my fifth season cooking fudge.”
Do you have any funny memories that you’d like to share?
“I remember that I first started in 1984 as a popcorn cook. My favorite memory is Bunky (Mr. Dolle)’s jokes, but there are so many that I couldn’t pick my favorite from the bunch.”
What is your favorite Dolle’s treat?
“I love the Vanilla Buttercreams.”
Is there something you like or know about Dolle’s that the public doesn’t know?
“Everything is really fresh, it’s made daily versus other candy stores.”
How has Dolle’s changed your life?
“Every time I go on vacation I have to go into the local candy stores. I like checking out what they’re doing and tasting new flavors of fudge. I like to see if any of the flavors can be something we can create too-which is how the Vanilla/Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel was made!”
Wow! Thank you, Jeff, for being such an amazing candy chef and bringing new things to the table!
