Amityville, NY, June 24, 2016 --( Calico Cottage, Inc., the creator and market leader of in-store, small-space fudge retailing programs, announced it will exhibit select new flavors from its collection of more than 300 fudge recipes at the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York from June 26 through June 28, 2016.
