Newcomerstown, OH – December 9, 2014 – How do you store a caramel apple or a chocolate apple? Today, Tastee Apple, Inc., America’s top producer of caramel apples, chocolate-coated apples and jelly apples at www.tasteeapple.com, reveals their top, three tips on how to save these, holiday treats for up to 30 days.

“Many people receive our delicious apples like Graham ‘N Cream, Cookies ‘N Cream and Triple Chocolate Sensation Apples as holiday gifts, but they don’t know how to store them,” states Greg Hackenbracht, Tastee Apple, Inc. Founder and CEO. “To enjoy these caramel and chocolate apples days from now, we are providing three, valuable tips.”

How do you Store Caramel Apples or Chocolate-Coated Apples?

1. Place them in the refrigerator.

As soon as you receive a caramel or chocolate apple, place it in the refrigerator and avoid the freezer. And to slow down oxidation, or browning, add a little lemon juice to the uneaten apple.

• Tastee Caramel Apples can last up to two weeks after purchase when refrigerated.

• Tastee Fantasy Gourmet Apples and Tastee Super Premium Gourmet Apples can last up to 30 days after purchase when refrigerated.

• And if there is any type of protective paper on the apples, it will come off easily when cooled.

2. Hide the apples!

Caramel and chocolate-coated apples are healthy, tasty treats that people can’t resist. If you need to store your apples in the refrigerator, you may want to hide them behind a bottle of milk or in a paper bag. Otherwise, you risk having a bite (or more) taken out of your apple!

3. Give the apples time to warm up.

When you are ready to eat your caramel and chocolate-dipped apples, place them on the counter to warm up. We suggest keeping them away from pets, flying insects, people you don’t want to eat the apples, etc.

By giving the apples about twenty minutes to warm up, the caramel and chocolate won’t be too hard or stiff and taste just right.

“Caramel and chocolate apples are healthy and delicious snacks any time of year with protein and carbohydrates for energy, very little total fat and less than 170 calories in a three-ounce serving,” states Hackenbracht. “Pick one up at your local store for the perfect, holiday-host gift or to share with family and friends.”
