Short History of Caramel & Candy Apples
Who thought to put sweet stuff around apples? Well it’s said that in 1908 William Kolb created the first candied apple by combining red cinnamon candy and an apple to sell for Christmas.
In the 1950s, Kraft Foods invented the caramel apple. This was yet another holiday candy experiment where employee Dan Walker took excess caramel, melted them, and added it to apples.
Spooky, yet oh so delicious.
