Dining in Disneyland: The Holiday Specialty Caramel Apple (A.K.A. the Peppermint Beast)

Walking past Marceline’s Confectionery in Downtown Disney, I noticed a new caramel apple on display in the candy kitchen window.

It’s size was enormous compared to the other two on display, and I knew I needed to do some investigating!

On our way out, I decided to grab one to go and conquer this beast at home.

At $12.99, this apple is way expensive, but you can basically feed a whole army with it. AND this is what you will want to do because as I was paying for it, the Cast Member announced to the entire population of Marceline’s, “1400 Calorie Apple Right Here!”

I was like, “Seriously?” And the answer? “Yep.”  A little disgusted with myself, I justified the situation knowing I was going to share it with my family.

The Granny Smith Apple is first dipped in caramel; it is then given a coating of peppermint (YES! PEPPERMINT) chocolate and rolled in a serious amount of red & green M&M’s. After that, it’s drizzled with white chocolate and sprinkled with sparkly sugar crystals.

The official name of this apple is literally “Specialty Holiday Caramel Apple.” A little boring right? Especially since they could call it something fun like “Peppermint Beast…”

Immediately after opening the package I had to do a public service and weigh this thing. It felt really heavy, and I was curious about the actual weight.

So, I grabbed my little scale and went for it.  Any guesses? [Read more…]

The Battle of the Apple Pie Caramel Apples

So, while my eyes were bugging out at Pooh Corner in Disneyland last year over all of the incredible sweets, I happened upon this interesting caramel apple: The Apple Pie Apple. This is a granny smith apple covered in caramel, doused in white chocolate, then sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar and dipped in pie crust crumbs. Perfectly lovely!

I didn’t buy one that day, but I couldn’t forget it! So on a recent trip to Walt Disney World, I bought two Apple Pie Apples — one at a standard Disney candy store, and one at the Werther’s Karamell Küche shop in Epcot’s World Showcase. I thought it might be fun to see which version was better…

The apple pie apples at Karamell Küche in Epcot are slightly different than the one I found in Disneyland and the others in Disney World. These are granny smith apples covered in Werther’s caramel, encased in white chocolate, then dipped in brown sugar and pie crust crumbs. They are truly glorious to look at:
