Goto next slide#5: Fudgie

Definition:

(noun) : someone who visits Mackinac Island, Michigan, or another tourist destination, and buys homemade fudge there

Example:

"What's a fudgie? You are, if you've ever walked out of a shop with a white box, a plastic knife and a sweet tooth champing at the bit. You're an outsider, a profit center. A tourist. Whatever its origins or however cute it sounds, the term is not particularly complimentary." – Andy Badeker, Chicago Tribune, July 9, 1997
