Why is it called "Soldier's" Fudge? This is another thing about this recipe I like. Those of you who like to mail out care packages, take note: According to www.recipestogo.com, "This recipe was very popular during the Second World War when people wanted to ship goodies to their soldiers overseas. It travels well, lasts a long time and contains no sugar as sugar was rationed during the war."
