How long will my caramel apple gifts stay fresh?

Our apple gifts are best enjoyed soon after receipt. If you're unable to enjoy it immediately, place your apple gift in the refrigerator. Typically, if refrigerated, apple gifts will remain fresh for two weeks. Also, never freeze a n Affy Tapple Apple. Remember Mother Nature is not perfect. So don't wait too long!

How long will my confection gifts stay fresh?

Our caramel and pretzels gifts, in their original stay fresh packaging, will stay at their best for up to three months. Remember to always keep chocolate away from heat!

Are my caramel confection gifts gluten-free?

The apples, caramel and all of the constituent ingredients from which our caramel is made are completely gluten-free. Most of the toppings applied to our apple products are also completely gluten-free. However, while the items listed below are manufactured from gluten-free ingredients, the plant in which they are produced also produces products from ingredients that do contain gluten. Thus there is a possibility that trace quantities of gluten may be entrained in otherwise gluten-free products, through the air or other migration paths.
