Caramel Apples Made Easy


Caramel Apple Box, a sweet deal for only $7.


Caramel apples are a fun fall tradition that date back to the early 1900’s. William Kolb, a candy maker, is known for creating the first candied apple by experimenting with red cinnamon candy. He placed the apples in his store window and they’ve been a big hit ever since. People loved the candied apple so much that they started making their own variations; one being the caramel apple.

Making caramel apples are a fun, but collecting the sticks, caramels and toppings can be a challenge. Don’t worry; we have made it easy for you! Pick up our Carmel Box and create the perfect caramel apples.

For just $7 you get:

  • Two 5 oz. bags of Werther’s chewy or soft caramels
