Many know him simply as the 'candy man on the radio,' but Joe Bogle, founder of the Original FUdge Kitchen alongside his brother Paul Bogle, has worked his entire life and has taken great risks to bring fudge and candy to generations of Cape visitors. 

Bogle had been hands-on with the Fudge Kitchen nearly every day of the past fifty years.  He said that Spring 2020 was the first season where he wasn't "at the Washington Mall playing around with the Easter bunny," a tradition that locals have come to see as a staple.  Joe said that he deldom takes a day off; if he expects employees to work, he'll be there too.
