I’ve lived in the Capital Region my entire life, I just didn’t realize my entire life was a lie.
I was innocently scrolling through Facebook a few weeks ago when I saw two local friends of mine, Danielle and Jerry (DerryX) talking about the iconic cookie. What they were talking about was not just about how delicious they are but how everything I knew about the cookie was wrong.
As far I as I knew, The Cookie Factory were the peak Fudge Fancy makers in the Capital Region. Until I did some investigation, I found out that’s not at all true and now I don’t even know what else is a lie! Is Nipper still a dog?

Fudge Fancies are from Bella Napoli and Fudge Fantasies are from Cookie Factory – the same cookie but so different! The shortbread texture is what sets the two apart. Cookie Factory is a tad chewier than the Bella Napoli which tends to crumble as a true shortbread cookie would. Both are still amazing!!
The fudge fancy cookies was first introduced in Troy at the vanilla bean baking company on fourth street Troy New York the owners were Debbie and Carl Alberino with the original recipe.

I remember them from long before Vanilla Bean came into existance… from Bella Napolli, from Golden Krust, White Eagle and Banias just to name a few bakery memories. It seemed most bakeries had their own version of them and they were all delicious.
