Caramel Apples - Gourmet Apples & More Review

Disclosure: I received nothing for this review. I bought some of the apples and wanted to share my thoughts about the company. Be aware that your experience could even be better. 

A couple of weeks ago the Heart of Katy Craft Show took place at the high school in Katy, TX. I was driving by and had this sudden urge to stop and check it out. There were lots of booths selling jewelry, hand knitted and crochet blankets, wreaths, table runners and an assortment of clothes. As I walked around I saw many things that I liked but just not enough to buy. Then I came around a corner and there they were in all their glory. Chocolate covered caramel apples. Now I knew why I had the urge to stop. I had been there the year before and bought an apple. My taste buds remembered how heavenly it tasted.

The booth was operated by Gourmet Apples & More out of Grapevine, TX. They had a variety of  their chocolate covered caramel apples along with some of their chocolate covered pretzels. Needless to say they were busy. After much debate I bought a Traditional Gourmet Apple and a Plain Jane Gourmet Apple.  I am here to tell you I made great choices.

They use tart Granny Smith apples and cover them with sweet caramel. As if this doesn't make them delicious enough they go one step further and covered them in chocolate. Then to add the cherry on top they put pecans, Heath bits, Butterfinger bits, M&Ms,apple pie spices and peanut butter chocolate to create the various flavors they have available.
They also have Chocolate popcorn, Chocolate covered pretzels, Dipped marshmallows, Krispie covered treats and an assortment of homemade pies. If you are looking for a different gift they have gift boxes in various sizes that have a sampling of the apples, popcorn and pretzel sticks.
