You’ll want to jump right in and eat one. But how: bottom up or top down? Or maybe – in a well-intended but futile attempt to stay tidy – use a knife?

Any way you go, this caramel apple can only delight.

After one bite, only a Great!Lakes Candy Kitchen caramel apple will do. In a world populated with far too many uninspired supermarket interpretations, this scrumptious jubilation outranks all others.

Savor the true taste of the season. You’ll enjoy fall even more with a real caramel apple in hand even if things get a little messy.
