Fact of the Day: Candy Apple

While known as the toffee apple outside the United States, the candy apple was apparently invented by an American. That man's name was William W. Kolb, and he created the candy apple in 1908.

  2. I've never been big on these but I recently saw someone melt jolly rancher candies and pour that on an apple and they said it was good as well.

  5. Toffee or caramel apples are much, much better tasting than those awful red candy apples. I'm speaking from memory only, of course. Haven't had one since I was a kid.
