IDDBA 2015: Part 1

Exactly two weeks ago today (Has it really been two weeks already?!) Daffy Farms was wrapping up the IDDBA’s Dairy-Deli-Bake Seminar and Expo at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia! Our second year as an exhibitor at this trade show that offers the newest, best, and tastiest dairy, deli, and bakery products in the industry, we featured our Traditional Dipping Caramel on over 100 handmade gourmet caramel apples, as well as our All Natural Baker’s Caramel on an assortment of gorgeous desserts, and debuted our brand new Daffy Farms Rich & Creamy Caramel, an 8 ounce tub of dippable, pourable, drizzleable, caramel ready to hit retail store shelves this fall!

Hotel Pic - UseAfter a long flight from Colorado, we made it to the ATL! There’s our hotel! Not the big one in the center, the little one on the left. We were across the street from SkyView Atlanta, a giant ferris wheel, which made us feel right at home, because, you know, caramel apples, carnivals, ferris wheels…

CAM02019With one day to stick, dip, decorate, and package over 100 gourmet caramel apples, we started early and employed a good amount of teamwork.

Did you know . . .

CAM00983 UseNothing is more important to the making of caramel than sugar! Sugars are found in the tissues of most plants, but are only present in enough volume for extraction in sugarcane and in sugar beets. Sugarcane has been cultivated in Asia since ancient times, with large scale expansion taking place in the 18th century with the establishment of sugar plantations in the West Indies and Americas. This was when sugar became more readily available to common people, as before the 18th century honey was generally used to sweeten foods. Sugar beets wouldn’t become a major source of sugar until the 19th century, when better methods for obtaining sugar from them were developed. Currently, the world produces about 200 million tons of sugar a year and each individual American consumes about 130 pounds, compared to an average of around 50 pounds per person for the rest of the world.

“Daffy Apples were so beautiful and perfect for our October wedding. All our guests commented on how delicious they were although I was unable to even taste one as they were snatched up so fast!  Thank you so much. They were a great and high quality party favor.”
