caramel apples

“An Apple for the teacher will always do the trick…” sings Crosby, “when you don’t know your lesson in arithmetic”.

Perhaps you should have just studied, but maybe an apple can get you by this time. Why are apples always associated with teachers? Coincidentally, September is not only the time schools begin session, but also a prime time in apple harvesting season. Although there is no solid evidence as to where this tradition came from or why, there have been many educated guesses.

Apples are universally associated with health, hence the saying “an apple a day, keeps the Doctor away”.  This could mean it was a gift wishing the teacher good health. Some families could not afford schooling, and apples were used as a method of payment for teachers. Apples were also used to show appreciation, especially when teachers had nearly 50 students in their classroom!

Apples have come a long way, especially here at Daffy Farms. What would look better on your teacher’s desk this year than one of our premium apples?

 

Best of luck to all students and teachers for the 2016 -2017 school year from Daffy Farms!

Daffy Girl 3

Introducing…Daffy Girl! This is the kind of nostalgia that is way to cool to hold back until throwback Thursday! Today we re-found Daffy Girl in a folder with a marketing plan for the company from the 1960s-70s. She’s like our own personal superhero with impeccable fashion taste – to say we want her Daffy Apple Red Handbag would be an understatement!! In the same folder, there was the picture, below, with a look at some of the original Daffy Apple packaging from a similar time frame, when Daffy Apples were even sold at the theme park home of the world’s most famous mouse!

Thank you to bride, Laura, for this lovely photo! She used our Petite Red Candy Caramel Apples with Crunch as part of the dessert display at her wedding this weekend, along with homemade pies and cream cheese mints and, of course, wedding cake. We love this idea and the rustic, fall colors in this display are absolutely gorgeous!!

Awesome Website Changes

The Bad News: The website is going to be down for a couple of hours this afternoon while we make some awesome changes!

The Good News: Once it is back up, it will be super mobile friendly, but pretty much the same otherwise! Yay! Go forth and buy caramel apples on your phones and tablets, friends…

Paper Caramel Apple Boxes

At Daffy Farms, we’re always on the lookout for fun new ways to package caramel apples and a little while ago, we found these adorable caramel apple boxes at Box & Wrap!

Cute Boxes 5 - Use

They come in three different patterns and range in price from about $0.60 to $1.20 depending on which design and the quantity ordered. They arrive flat.

And are incredibly easy to fold, as they are already glued in the right places.

They even come pre-punched with an ‘X’ in the top, for the caramel apple stick.

We found this fantastic round shelf that not only has an urban vibe, it reinforces the round idea of a caramel apple. This display, full of handmade gourmet caramel apples made with our Daffy Apple Traditional Dipping Caramel, Daffy Apple Red Candy Dipping Caramel, and Daffy Farms All Natural Dipping Caramel, turned out to be quite picture-worthy, judging from how many folks stopped to snap a photo of it!

And, of course, some close-ups of the apples!!
