Remember the toffee apples you used to get at the school fete? Well these aren’t them. Love Dem Apples, of Bondi and Glebe Markets fame, have opened up shop on Cleveland Street in Surry Hills, selling a range of tasty caramel apples.
Once at home, I could not wait to dig in. Half the apple I cut up and the other half I ate off the stick. The Granny Smith apple was crisp and refreshing to bite into, with surprisingly few seeds. The soft caramel coating was sweet and the peanuts were generously abundant and topped with a nice drizzle of chocolate for good measure. What I really enjoyed afterward was that despite the size of my dessert, I did not feel guilty or overly full as I sometimes do post dessert.
I know you are supposed to have an apple a day to keep the doctor away, but personally, I’m not really a fan of fruit. However, when you combine apples with caramel, chocolate and a wide selection of sweets and candied toppings – you have a winner! Ding, Ding, Ding! So the question is now, if I have one of these a day, will it still keep the doctor away?
