National Caramel Apple Day

Caramel Apple Day celebrates caramel apples, and takes place after the apple harvest, on Halloween. Caramel apples—also known as taffy apples—are made by dipping or rolling apples-on-a-stick in hot caramel, and then oftentimes rolling them in nuts or other toppings. Tart and crisp apples such as Granny Smith and Fuji are often used. Caramel apples should not be confused with candy apples, which are apples coated with a sugar coating. It is believed that caramel apples were invented by Dan Walker, a representative of Kraft foods, in the 1950's.
