The Best Caramel Apple {Charleston, SC}

Posted Sep 09 2012 2:20pm

After lunch, my sweet tooth was calling. I was a woman on a mission in search of a particular treat.

We headed to the market.

And straight to the Charleston Candy Kitchen.

There were lots of delicious-looking sweets, but I was only interested in one thing (for now at least).

The caramel apple. Not just any caramel apple. This is the treat of choice of Alex Guarnaschelli on The Best Thing I Ever Ate – the food on a stick episode.

Cue angels singing.

The apple was everything I’d hoped for. I like to get caramel/chocolate apples back home at the Rocky Mountain Candy Company, but I usually go for the options with lots of different toppings. This time, I went for the apple how Alex recommended it – straight up with just caramel. I could have eaten five of these in a row, it was so good. The apple (granny smith) was lovely, crisp, and tart. The caramel was soft, smooth, and sweet. I think this will now be a must-eat every time I come to Charleston.

We headed out and considered doing a carriage tour…until we saw the sky.

Instead, we did a quick run through the market…

…and headed back towards our hotel.

Next time – the best fish I’ve ever had!
