My ultimate sweet weakness is a good caramel apple. I love them. I have a will of iron when it comes to pretty much everything else . . . . but something about the perfect balance of sweet and salty and sour and . . . yummmmmm.
I mean, they were the only culinary highlight of Disney. . . possibly my favorite part of the whole trip. My mom knows how much I love them and sends me some every year from Mrs. Prindable's, a fancy caramel apple place in Illinois.
So last summer when I read about a local gourmet caramel apple company called Le Posh Pomme from Baton Rouge . . . I've naturally been hunting them down ever since.
I finally got my act together this last week and ordered one . . OK, two. And can I just say, they are not only seriously beautiful, but they are seriously amazing. I just asked Christina, the creator of these beauties, to send me her best seller. And usually I'm a purest . . green apple, caramel and peanuts. Not all the extras. But my boys and I just devoured one with caramel and pecans and then drizzled with milk and white chocolates . . . and it was fabulous. I now don't have to eat for a week.
Ours came with super cute bows with an apple charm (I really have no idea what to call that doo-dad on the bow — a button, a charm??), but she does all kinds of decorations for holidays and even personalizes them. How cute for a teacher . . . I think they might actually eat this apple!
So how and where do you get these? You can place an order by emailing email@example.com or calling (225) 921-2677. She ships and can arrange pickups in Baton Rouge. And you can find her at different events around Baton Rouge . . . check out her Facebook page.
But seriously, this is the best and cutest caramel apple . . . better than Mrs. Prindable's (and I thought those could never be topped). . . and not just because it's local. The local, handmade-by-a-Louisianan just makes it that much sweeter!
