Defer Elementary School students recently wrote letters to State Sen. Bert Johnson proposing that Mackinac Island fudge become Michigan's official sweet.

On Friday, Johnson and Ryba's Fudge came to the Grosse Pointe Park elementary school to discuss the legislative process and demonstrate how fudge is made.

Johnson also shared with the students that a bill has been introduced into the State Senate that would fulfill the students suggestions.

Additionally, representatives from the family owned-Ryba's Fudge brought portable 400-pound marble tables and the other tools of the trade to make fresh batches of fudge for the students.
