SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Bass Pro Shops – the outdoor goods destination – is thanking its customers for naming the retailer as one of “America’s Most Reputable Companies” with a big celebration that includes giving away 19 tons of free fudge nationwide.

Customers can stop in to any Bass Pro Shops location in the U.S. on Wednesday, July 26 to enjoy the fudge while supplies last. Quantities are limited to one per customer per visit. Preparations to create the enormous batch have been underway for weeks.
