The original Factory was just a couple blocks from my house on North Clark Street near Touhy. As kids we could go in and get what was called a broken stick, or an imperfect apple, ones that perhaps d...idn't get enough caramel, or the peanuts were uneven, and they were such a delight. I think a buckle or 7 cents back in the 1970 s. I always try to pick up a case when I'm in town, If you don't like them or understand
Chicagoian 's love of them, well I guess all we can say is...." It's a Chicago thing."
I finally got my hands on the apple pie affy tapple. I've been looking for this particular
kind of affy tapple for years!! I was so happy when I finally saw them in the store..I had to stock up!! I've... already eaten at least 5 this season and each one was so fresh! Not sure why there have been so many complaints this year. People need to be sure that they refrigerat e their apples as soon as they get home because that does make a difference . (P.s. Please don't ever stop making the apple pie kind lol 😂😌😋)
Before I could even take more than a few bites, my finger sunk right into a soft spot on it... covered in gray/
white mold. Yes, mold. Underneath the caramel and peanuts was a completely rotting apple ...with spots of mold throughout . The core was practicall y decayed. Just one bite below the skin was brown, rotting, spoiled flesh. It was absolutely disgusting . It’s enough for me to never purchase an Affy Tapple ever again.

While I was checking out the Affy Tapple website my wife tells me that when she went to Bethesda grade school her and her friends would go into the factory store and get one with a broken stick for a ...nickel or unbroken for a dime. She said on school hot lunch days or hot dog days parents would buy boxes of caramel apples to treat the kids. Now I have one of the reasons for her fall craving for Affy Tapple caramel apples.
HORRIBLE!! ! Completely inedible! I look forward to fall for this one reason! Taffy Apples! I have purchased 5 different 3 packs... at 3 different grocery stores and was able to eat 1! o...ut of 15 apples!! Same as the others. the minute I cut it, its browner inside than the Carmel on the outside. Words can not describe the disgust and disappoint ment I am feeling. Your company will never get another dime from me. In case you are wondering. .. yes I checked expiration dates before I bought them. Tonight's batch had a sell by date of 10/21! By the looks of other reviews this is not an isolated incident. What a shame...

I bought a three pack at my local Meijer store this morning. The pack was dated 11/9/
2017. Once opened a bit into it was very apparent that the first apple was bad. So I cut the remaining ones up, and... sure enough, all were bad. I am extremely disappoint ed, as this is the second time it happened. This most recent batch was a result of returning a previous bad batch. (And at different store locations! )
Always great! I did work at Walmart in the Produce Dept. And I had to bring it to the attention of the other workers and management
that they were supposed to be refrigerat ed according to the box and ...they hadn't been that's why they kept getting returned rotten or they would notice before they went to the floor that they were no good. Started storing in the cooler and the products were good to go didn't have any other problems!
I love Affy Tapple but have had a bad experience
since they have been on the market this year. In chicago i bought 1 pack at Jewel-Osco the apples very soft and brown and to throw out. 1 at Fair play ...Chicago same apple soft and brown had to thru out and several from a fundraiser had to throw out due to the same issue. The lot number from Fair Play 34986 00002. I hope you guys correct this problem.
I Love affy tapples and whenever I can find them I will buy them, but for the past year I've been trying to figure out why are all of the affy tapple containers
open on each side? It makes me worry t...hat bugs might have crawled into the packaging or someone has placed something inside of the packaging before I purchased it. To me this is a big safety and sanitation concern. Can you all please properly seal the packaging of this wonderful product.
I don't know what has happened here lately to Affy Tapple's :( I am one of the biggest lover or should say WAS of these until recently. The last four or five three packs we purchased were nothing but ...ROTTEN apples! They looked great on the outside and the dates were good. I was so mad. We did take back the first two packs but not the last three...TO
SSED them out. WHAT is going on? WHY cover up junk apples and try to pass them off to customers? How disgusting .
I usually make my own caramel apples, but this year I decided to try Affy Tapples cause they were on sale at the local IGA store 2/$1.00. I sliced them up and they were so good. I went back the next d...ay and bought some more. Their date of freshness is till 11/05/17. I may even get some for the Trick or Treaters for Halloween.
The staff was so friendly and helpful! I always gave affy tapples to my grandkids class for Halloween.
Today the schools have a no nut zone policy and the apples with the sprinkles are a great substit...ute and they look so much better than plain apples! The kids look forward to affy tapples at Halloween.

I used to love these carmel apples. But quality has gone way down. Out of 9 apples, I had 1 that wasn't bruised or just plain bad. Very disappoint
ing. I tried contacting customer service via the webs...ite and now I get emails but no answer to my complaint.

Great customer service. We made a mistake on our shipping address and ask 24 hours before if we could change it to a location that was half a mile away and they did. We would have been sorting over ...100 cases of apples in a soccer field!
I used to love these! My all time favorite until the last few years. Now I'm LUCKY to get an apple that is NOT rotten. Bought 4 packages so far this year and no good. 😣
