I'm curious - does anyone else care that we have people that sell fudge trying to make Blue Ridge famous? Get real. I think a billboard and newspaper article and FB posts are enough. That don't impress me much!

At least someone is trying to promote their business. Don't be hating on people for success.

I agree with daley, at least someone is trying to promote their business & the ENTIRE downtown area! Jealousy of others doesn't impress me much either.

I have to agree with Wondering. What's the big deal about selling fudge? Two of the other downtown merchants have made the same sort of comment. I know Local Observer will say they are just jealous. But I'm serious when I say I just don't get how that is a claim to fame.

Jealousy is sickening! Can people not be happy for other people and their success?? Some people need to grow up in this town!

Obviously you didn't even read the article! If someone has to talk about another business in a degrading way, then yes that is jealousy. 2 of the other downtown merchants, out of the 70+ businesses, made the same sort of comment?? Jealousy is rampant in the downtown area, maybe this is what the downtown district needs to work together for the common good! I had rather read articles in the paper promoting positive things about our community, than all the BS backbiting & bickering that has been going on lately!

I didn't read anywhere that they were trying to make a "claim to fame". The article that I read simply reported about a family business who was invited to an event & a brief summary of the activities. Nowhere did I read anything about "fame". I did however read where the owner stated that it was about promoting Blue Ridge, not just their business!

Who wouldn't want to get their fudge packed by Three famous Sisters and their Milf Mama in Blue Ridge ?

To be fair, competition in such a small community makes perfect sense. With such a small population, and several businesses offering the same kind of service, proving you have the better product through advertisement, word of mouth, etc., will ALWAYS come out on top.

It's Business 101.

Show and prove you have a better product and you eliminate the competition through simple capitalism.

Call it jealousy, call it stupidity, call it small town shenanigans, it's just business.

I don't think having your family photographed with Hope from Days of Our Lives and having your picture taken and plastered all over local newspapers is going to sell fudge or anything else that's for sale in Blue Ridge. I think it's just someone wanting to toot their own horn. I'd be embarrassed if that's what I had to do to get business and make a living, but that's just me. As for jealously, what's their to be jealous over the pictures, make-up or fudge?

Nativev/Wondering, I suppose you'll have to tell us which one or all of the above that you are so jealous about!! Or could it be that nobody has ever referred to your Mom(LK) as a MILF or wanted their fudge packed by you????

I would be embarrassed if all I had to do is STALK this family & be concerned about where their business is coming from, but that's just me. You obviously STALK them or else you wouldn't have known about the picture w/Hope from DooL. If you have such an issue w/them, then be a real friend, & "unfriend" them on FB! It really is that simple! I too have known them for a very long time & was thrilled to see the picture w/Hope..b/c the oldest daughter was named after the actress!!

I personally would like to see more stories like this local success story plastered all over the newspapers instead of the usual BS that's in there, especially now since it's only running 1 day a week. Maybe instead of allowing the Gren-eued Monster to take over your thoughts, you should learn to toot your own horn & just maybe you will become as successful & get to walk down the red carpet yourself!!

This topic hits points of such inane blandness MTV has a bid on it.

It's comical how people try and try to make themselves look so important.
Most anyone can rent a booth and peddle goods.
Most people can also get dressed for dinner and go to any restaurant and snap a photograph and place on Facebook.
Some people always try and blow up little things.
Big fish in a little pond!
Whatever floats the boat..
Fudge is full of sugar and unhealthy.
Is that where some of these fatties get those extra pounds?

Three sister fudge is simply the best. What a hard working family.

Yeah, I love the way they stir their fudge. Looks like the daddy has been eating too much of it though!

Really this is sad, a hometown business working hard, paying taxes, and all people can do is insult. Perhaps you should take your negative energy and help a child, be a mentor, or volunteer instead.

P.s. their fudge is awesome and smooth

Oh the small minded jealousy of some people. You should be proud of what this family has accomplished. A&A are two of the hardest working people in this town. Their lights are on when most of the sidewalks downtown have been rolled up. I'm proud to know this family and they are all a credit to our town.
