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.

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!!

  • Daffy Farms ships products all across the country, however shipping costs do make the potential profit earned from our Petite Caramel Apples and Daffy Pop very low.  Daffy Apple Caramel Apple Kits are a good option due to their lower shipping costs and often local businesses will donate apples. Please contact us for more information on fundraising options.

Q&A Tuesday: When are Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples in season?

Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples are produced from late August until early December. Local customers in the Denver Metro Area may contact us to discuss order pick-up starting in August. We will not ship Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples until late September due to temperatures and the perishable nature of caramel apples. Please review the Petite Caramel Apple Ordering Deadlines & Information page for further information about shipping dates and timelines. We also produce a limited number of Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples in April each year, which is the perfect time to try a Petite Caramel Apple Sample Pack before ordering a larger quantity for a fall event!
