October is... rapidly nearing its last day, which will end in celebration of Halloween. Throughout the month apples have been at the center of attention since October is National Apple Month and apples are APPle, AppLE, APPLE-licious! Of all the apple celebrations, one in particular stands out during local fall festivals and is a must for Halloween.
October 31 is...
National Candy Apple Day
Candy apples are known by an assortment of names: candy covered apples, candied apples, caramel apples, caramel candy apples, lollipop apples, taffy apples, toffee apples and whatever you may wish to call the 'apple on a stick' that is not on this list.
"Almost all wild apples are handsome. They cannot be too gnarly and crabbed and rusty to look at. The gnarliest will have some redeeming traits even to the eye." -- Henry David Thoreau, Wild Apples
Even the candy apple has the apple as it core!
