This time last week we were right in the middle of the IDDBA Dairy-Deli-Bake Seminar and Expo 2014! Our goals for the show were to introduce our new products, Daffy Farms All Natural Baker’s Caramel and Daffy Farms All Natural Dipping Caramel, as well as to promote our classic recipes, Daffy Apple Traditional Dipping Caramel and Daffy Apple Red Candy Dipping Caramel to top grocery store bakeries, dessert manufacturers, and product distributors. The show was an overwhelming success and an invaluable experience, from the interest in our products to the industry connections to the distinguished guest speakers to the copious amounts of cheese samples! We also snapped a few photos along the way, so we could share our experience with you . . . .
Fall is our busy season, when apples are harvested and delivered to us fresh from orchards, but we stay plenty busy the rest of the year, too! The spring and summer months are when we test new products and perfect old ones. This year, that includes testing out some new caramel popcorn recipes and redesigning packaging to better fit our new image and branding as Daffy Farms. The picture to the left shows a draft of one of our new caramel popcorn packages as well as sample bags of our new recipes of all different weights and sizes. We hope to have the new packaging available for retail sale in June!
Petite Caramel Apples are sold by the case of 24 or half case of 12. They are a single serving size each and make fantastic party, event, and wedding favors. They are the same apples available at local grocery stores in the fall and they can be ordered in either single pack or 3 pack retail packaging. They are only available during the month of April and from September to November.
Premium Caramel Apples are sold individually in gift packaging, either in a Daffy Apple Red Box or in a Clear Caramel Apple Box. They are generally considered 3-4 servings per apple so they are great for sharing and are perfect as an individual gift item for a holiday or event. They are made with a thicker, richer premium caramel and they are available all year long.
