First & foremost, when DeBrand Fine Chocolates says that these are Giant Chocolate Caramel Apples, ($22-27) they do mean giant. We thought it might've been just the incredibly thick coatings of caramel, chocolate, and nuts, but the apples themselves are about five times the size of your average farmer's market Gala or Honeycrisp. Which means that one of these apples, all told, weighs 2 or 3 pounds and sends up to eight people into a sugar high state in a snap. And boy, is it worth it. Choose from dark or milk chocolate, and with or without nuts. Any way you slice it, they're ooey-gooey-good. Just brush your teeth afterwards.
P.S. - These are a special seasonal item, and will only be available until mid-November at the latest. All the more reason to indulge now!
