With Tootsie’s Caramel Apple Orchard Pops you can have the most unique lollipop experience you’ve ever expected. Tootsie executed the idea of putting candy inside the lollipop, but it isn’t as often that you find candy coating the lollipop! With this candy apple pop you can get the sweet and sour caramel apple taste without getting caramel stickiness all over your nose and chin while trying to bite into a huge caramel covered apple.
These aren’t “orchard” pops for nothing, you need to live with a little variety, you have a choice between the mild Red Macintosh, the tangy yellow Golden Delicious, or the classic Green Apple.
This candy has a great caramel to apple ratio. After you peel off the wrapper from the sticky lollipop, at least a section of the candy “apple” is uncovered which leaves the decision open for you if you want just the caramel taste first or if you want to start it off with the flavor combination. Then the whole lollipop can be enjoyed as the two complementary flavors blend as one as it stretches or gets chewed up into a ball.
The caramel does always seem to be gone before the rest of the candy which leaves you to enjoy the solo apple flavor as you would with a real caramel apple.
The Red Macintosh significantly lacks in the in tangy sweetness compared to the Golden Delicious and the classic Green Apple falls in between the two flavors of tangy sweetness. No matter what flavor you may choose the caramel adds the sweet chewy consistency that is needed to balance out the slightly sour hard candy apple.
