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.

They turned out pretty amazing! Check back tomorrow for IDDBA: Part 2 to see the results and more pictures from our booth at the show!!

Dipping Things (Other than Apples) in Caramel!

Sure Daffy Farms caramels are great for dipping apples, but did you know they make fantastic dipping caramels for other desserts? Our candy chef did some experimenting with several other items, so we could really see if our caramel held up to the test. It did! And with delicious looking, delicious tasting, results!

All 1

We dipped giant marshmallows in both our Traditional Caramel and our All Natural Baker’s Caramel. Both caramels held up well. Then we coated them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, as well as chocolate mini gems, pecans, and crispy cereal.

We dipped pretzel rods in both caramels, and topped them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, pecans, carnival sprinkles, sandwich cookies, and crispy cereal.

All Pretzels 1

We dipped potato chips in both caramels, and topped them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, and pecans. Our candy chef even made bride and groom chips, which are adorable!

We made pecan clusters using both caramels, dark chocolate, and sea salt.

And last, but definitely not least, we dipped sandwich cookies fully and partially in both caramels and topped them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, and pecans. Venturing into the cookie realm, made us realize that almost any cookie in the grocery store aisle would work well with this application and suddenly become a homemade candy-like treat!

Did you know . . .

BannerCrunchApplesRarely do we think of apples in terms of numbers, well at Daffy Farms we do, but that’s because we use a lot of apples!  Throughout the world there are over 7,500 different varieties of apples and around 2,500 of them are grown in the United States alone.  The only variety native to North America is the crabapple. Out of all of the different kinds of apples only 100 varieties are grown for commercial use. Apple trees grow and thrive in all 50 U.S. states, but only 36 house commercial apple growing orchards.
