As a blogger, I sometimes get invited to really cool events. I recently attended a tour of Mrs. Prindables. I've got one word for the place: YUM!
Ok, seriously. They've never done a tour before, and I have to admit that it was one of the coolest tours I've been on. It's really cool to see all of the hard work and time that gets put into these apples. An apple isn't just an apple here. One of the first things that I learned was Mrs. Prindables has their own line of apples (and no there was never a Mrs. Prindable). They also are the ones that do Affy Tapple apples. Now, Affy Tapple apples are big here in Chicago. I'm not sure if they go outside the immediate area here or not. We actually did some fundraising for Madison's school with Affy Tapple this year. We got to watch them make both. The main difference between the two is that Mrs. Prindables is hand made. Yes, hand made which is why they cost more. Affy Tapple apples are automatically made. (See story below). They also use a lot larger apples for the Mrs. Prindables apples.
It was truly an eye opening experience:
We were sent home (aff) with some caramel and a triple dipped chocolate apple to try. To die for. Seriously. You wouldn't believe how rich it was. And how yummy. I can say that this is a great unique gift to send a loved one or even buy for yourself!
Go check out Mrs. Prindable's. You won't be disappointed!
