Fruit is good for you. It’s chockfull of phytochemicals, antioxidants, vitamins & minerals, and fiber too. Fruit is healthy. Of course, I have to wonder whether it still is, after being smothered in caramel and chocolate. But then, when faced with a chocolatey caramel apple, there’s no recourse but to throw caution to the winds and bite in.
I admit. I don’t have a sweet tooth. But when faced with a wide display case of colorful, toothsome, albeit sweet looking goodies, how can I not stop and stare? Such was the case when we passed SanFo treats, a caramel apple store.
Yes, yes. I know that caramel apples aren’t anything new. But here in Manila, caramel apples aren’t so common. While apples have become much much cheaper than when I was growing up in the 80s, making caramel dipped apples never caught on. So, it’s understandable why SanFo, with its gamut of rainbow colored treats attract all who pass by. John and I were no exception.
We had a hard time choosing. John went for something that looked awfully sweet. When we asked the friendly sales person what it was, she said it was caramel, nuts, and nutella. NUTELLA! Despite all the tempting looking selections, I opted for something simple. It was called a Cosmopolitan (I think!). It was an apple double dipped in caramel and chocolate, then decorated with white swirls. Still, because we spent the rest of the evening shopping for other stuff, we decided to take our apples home instead.
My caramel apple greeted me first thing in the morning as I approached our dining table for breakfast. I figured the sugar rush wouldn’t hurt so I grabbed a knife and sliced away so I could share the apple with my mom.
At first glance, I figured it would be overly sweet. To my surprise, I was pleasantly disappointed as I bit into a perfect tasting mix of fruity with just a small dose of chocolate-y sweet. The apple–I’m guessing it’s a fuji apple–was juicy and crunchy. It was a perfectly munchy apple, coated with a layer of caramel then a layer of chocolate that was smooth and creamy, without overpowering the apple taste. Even my mom, who easily sweet things too sweet, found it delicious.
So was I convinced of SanFo Caramel Apples’ goodness? Well, with sweets this delightful, I may turn into a dessert person yet.
