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!
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.
Ta-Da! These are seriously adorable with Daffy Apple Petite Caramel Apples in them…
…but they also work really well with larger, gourmet apples!!
Nothing 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.

“We ordered 140 of your apples (peanut and crunch) as wedding favors for our guests. They all loved them. :)”
Well, we love these photos!! Soft lighting and the most gorgeous set of wedding rings perched on top of one of our Petite Caramel Apples with Crunch, absolutely beautiful!
Rarely 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.

Thank you so much to Stephanie for sending us these beautiful photos! She used our Petite Caramel Apples as her wedding favors and added the most adorable tags ever!!
For over 60 years, Daffy Apple has been famous the caramel on our caramel apples. Recently, though, we’ve been on a mission to fill a gap in the market for a cleaner label caramel. What we found is that there are some different needs for different companies, wholesalers, and individual customers. So we came up with three different caramels, Daffy Farms All Natural Baker’s Caramel, Daffy Farms All Natural Dipping Caramel, and Daffy Farms Dipping Caramel with Butter. All three caramels are now available for purchase on the our website, as well as our Daffy Apple Traditional Daffy Apple Dipping Caramel and Daffy Apple Red Candy Dipping Caramel, and each has a slightly different usage and ingredient profile, so that hopefully we have a caramel to fit your specific needs!
Daffy Farms All Natural Baker’s Caramel contains non-GMO corn syrup, no artificial flavors or colors or preservatives, and is perfect for baking applications, from brownies to tarts to a topping and filling for anything you’d find in a bakery case!
Daffy Farms All Natural Dipping Caramel contains non-GMO corn syrup, no artificial flavors or colors or preservatives, and has the same hold power and homemade caramel taste as our original recipe caramels. It is perfect for dipping caramel apples, marshmallows, pretzels and other desserts, it also works well in and on baked goods!
Daffy Farms Dipping Caramel with Butter also features no artificial flavors or colors or preservatives like our all natural caramels, but in a more economical version than our non-GMO caramels. It has the same hold power and homemade caramel taste as our original recipe caramels. It is perfect for dipping caramel apples, marshmallows, pretzels and other desserts, it also works well in and on baked goods!
