The History of the Candy Apple

In 1908, William W. Kolb, a Newark candy maker, experimented by dipping apples in liquid red cinnamon candy and putting them on display at Christmas.  Their popularity took off and soon you could find the confections in candy shops all across the country.

Candy apples are whole apples covered in hard candy with a stick in the middle to make them easier to eat.  Nowadays candy shops offer apples decorated in anything from caramel, to sprinkles to chopped up chocolate bar pieces.
