They’re here! And they’re beautiful!!

CAM01114-UseThe transition is almost complete!  The first batch of Daffy Apple Traditional Dipping Caramel in our new Daffy Farms branded tubs is sealed and cooling.  It’s the same recipe we’ve used for Daffy Apple Caramel Apples for over 60 years, the packaging just has a fresh new look!

Q & A Tuesday: How Are Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples Shipped?

Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples are shipped via UPS Ground.  Petite Caramel Apples are shipped in large, shipping boxes in cases of 24 and half cases of 12 and packaged in either single pack or 3-pack retail packaging to protect them and keep them fresh during shipping.  For further information on shipping and to view a map of UPS Ground shipping timelines from our factory location, please review the shipping page on our website.

DIY: Beyond Ribbon

Ribbon is wonderful.  Ribbon comes in every color, print, style, width, and it beautifully serves the purpose of keeping a cellophane bag, with a Petite Caramel Apple inside of it, closed.  Not to mention it is inexpensive, easy to use, and readily available.  We love ribbon, but we wanted to go beyond ribbon and see what else we could come up with.

Sparkly clothespins?  Yes!  These blue sparkly clothespins came in a package of 6 for $1.99 or around 33 cents each.

They fit perfectly around a Petite Caramel Apple stick and you could add a piece of clear tape to secure the cellophane bag further.  We’re thinking baby shower with this idea!

Sparkly seems to be a theme developing in this post.  Here are some lovely little sparkly green gemstone brads.  This package contains 9 gemstone brads for $2.99, or around 33 cents each.  We found these in the scrapbooking section and they come in a bunch of different colors and shapes and sizes!

The backs of these gemstone brads are just like regular brads.

They unfold and the metal is plenty strong enough to hold them in place, though, again, you could secure the cellophane bag closed with a piece of clear tape first. We would like to think our next DIY post will be less sparkly, but we can’t make any promises…

New Daffy Farms Caramel Corn Packaging

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!

Q&A Tuesday: How are Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples packaged and what does the packaging look like?

singleDaffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples are packaged in either a single pack or a 3 pack retail package.  We are unable to package and ship our Petite Caramel Apples in cellophane bags because they need their single pack or 3 pack packaging to3pack keep them fresh and protect them during shipping.  Also, they must be sold and delivered to all of our customers in their single pack or 3 pack retail packaging so that we meet all nutritional and allergen labeling guidelines as set by the FDA.

TIP: If ordering for an event and repackaging Petite Caramel Apples, we recommend ordering 3 packs so there will be less packaging to open!
