  • About

One of those sweets of childhood that signifies a special occasion to us —like candy canes, or half chocolate-half vanilla ice-cream cups. If you know any experimental candy-apple eaters (most tend to be conservative), you might try the surprisingly delicious combination of flavors that we prefer—anise-flavored candy coating over tiny Golden Delicious or Granny Smith apples.
