I’ve been a HUGE fan of the Walt Disney World caramel apples for many years.
My obsession grew to a new level when, on a recent trip to Disneyland, I saw that the West coast Disney snack artists have turned this formerly simple treat into a true art form.
Not only are the Disney caramel apples delicious, they are also beautiful, creative, and just plain fun.
But all of that begs a practical question. How do they get so many sticks into so many apples? I mean seriously, have you ever tried to shove a pop stick into an apple?
It’s hard, and messy, and after doing three or four of them, you’re ready to stop and just pour the caramel through a funnel into your mouth, bypassing the apple altogether. (Don’t try that at home folks. :-))
Well, as I was perusing the Disneyland treat offerings, I happened upon a caramel apple prep area and, mystery solved, I learned how they get the sticks into the apples. A handy-dandy gadget comes to the rescue…
Here’s video of the gadget in action.
A little Google sleuthing reveals that this too can be yours for a mere $80.00. Yep, eighty bucks. For that much money I could have whole bunches of caramels apples already made for me by the Disney experts.
Sounds like a plan!
So fellow treat eaters, did you ever wonder how they got the sticks in the apples? Will you be investing in a big ticket stick machine? Let us know in the comments below.
