Fudge

Fudge is a colloquialism dating back at least to 1700, when it meant a lie (229). By Gilbert’s time it also meant anything ridiculous or highly unreliable (56, 115). As a verb it means to obscure the truth (142). Knight (178) says the word was not applied to candy until the end of the nineteenth century.
