Willy Wonka would be proud.
Granny Smith apple, dipped in caramel, rolled in toffee candy bits, dipped again in white chocolate, rolled in crushed Butterfinger candy, dipped AGAIN in rich, dark chocolate, rolled in semi-sweet chips, dipped again in chocolate, rolled in an array of nuts, topped with more chocolate and a specialty candy.
This comes from Miss Debbies’ Specialty Apples in the Commercial Building, just inside the atrium. Her booth is a candy apple lover’s dream, with more flavors than you can dream.
We are big fans of Miss Debbie’s apples. This year, we’ve sampled the Reese’s After Dark Mega Monster (caramel, chocolate, peanut butter and Reese’s cups), Spumoni (pistachios, white chocolate, Italian cream confection and maraschino cherries) and the Dark Chocolate Caramel Macchiato Mega Monster (chocolate and coffee flavored — What more do you need to know?). YUM!
One of our co-workers says he buys a bunch of these apples and then freezes them and enjoys them throughout the year. That’s a great idea. But if you already visited the fair and didn’t try one of these apples, they do have a robust mail order business. What a great idea to send to someone who couldn’t come to the fair this year or a unique gift for anyone on your list. And best of all, they are a North Carolina business, hailing from Johnston County.
Willy Wonka would be proud indeed.
