NATIONAL CARAMEL APPLE DAY

One of the fun memories of many people’s childhood is eating caramel apples in the fall of the year.  It may have been at a fair, at a carnival, at a Halloween party or just at home with family and friends, but the memory is a good one and part of the fun was making them.

Each year on October 31, we celebrate caramel apples on National Caramel Apple Day.

  • Caramel apples (sometimes called taffy apples) are made by dipping apples, on a stick, in hot caramel.
  • Caramel apples are sometimes sprinkled with nuts, chocolate or other confections.
  • For caramel apples in high production, a sheet of caramel can be wrapped around the apple and then heated to melt the caramel evenly onto it.
  • The most commonly preferred apples used in making caramel apples are tart, crisp apples such as Granny Smith or Fuji apples.
  • Caramel apples are enjoyed by millions of people, young and old, across the nation.
  • This holiday has been perfectly coordinated to coincide with Halloween as that is the post popular time that caramel apples are made and shared.

CELEBRATE

Make or buy some caramel apples to enjoy and post on social media using #CaramelAppleDay to encourage others to do so as well.

HISTORY

National Caramel Apple Day, an “unofficial” national holiday is sponsored by the National Confectioners Association.
