LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Bass Pro Shops, the outdoor goods destination in Little Rock, 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.

Why 19 tons? Bass Pro ranked 19th on the list of 100 companies identified by Forbes based on a survey of 43,000 consumers, ranking above other iconic national brands including Disney, Home Depot, Marriott, Harley Davidson, FedEx, and others.

Customers can stop into Bass Pro Shops in Little Rock 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.

Under the visionary conservation leadership of founder/CEO Johnny Morris, Bass Pro Shops is known as a national leader in protecting habitat and introducing families to the outdoors. Last year 100,000 kids caught a fish at Bass Pro Shops-sponsored events.
