An apple is the agent for original sin, Johnny Appleseed's entire career, and an object to hide inside a sock to fake a hideously swollen ankle. Stock up on sock-stuffers with today's Groupon: for $25 you get $50 worth of caramel apples, chocolate-coated pretzels, and more at Amy's Apples & Devilish Delights. You can redeem your Groupon online or at the Smithfield store.
Amy's Apples is a purveyor of gourmet chocolate, caramel and candy-wrapped apples and pears, and other confections. Apples, which feed four to six, can be dipped in milk chocolate and studded with Heath bar chunks or crusted with pecans and pralines ($11.75) to fool sweet teeth into piercing a healthy core. For the non-fruit enthusiast, Pure Passion pretzel twists get enrobed in caramel or milk or dark chocolate, rolled in a candy or nut topping, and then drizzled with white or dark chocolate ($3.50 a piece).
Amy's Apples also offers imaginative party favors such as a thick slab of gooey Rice Crispy treat slathered with chocolate frosting and molded into a catcher's mitt and a white chocolate-covered Oreo decorated like a baseball ($5.35 a piece). Gift baskets ($60–$100) can be piled with apples, cupcakes, brownies, and rare issues of National Geographic.
