A candy apple, unlike a regular apple, is skewered with a sturdy stick and not a stray arrow shot from William Tell's crossbow. Spear a tasty treat with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet apples, sweet dipped treats, and candy at Sticky Fingers Gourmet Apples in Cohoes.
The skilled candy curators at Sticky Fingers Gourmet Apples personally hand-dip fresh, locally grown granny smith apples in sumptuous couverture chocolate and trans-fat-free caramel coverlets. Prime persnickety teachers’ palates with the caramel-and-white-chocolate-covered apple pie apple, sprinkled with brown sugar and cinnamon ($9.95), or chomp through the praline pecan apple ($11.95) to create a crunchy cacophony followed by a lip-smacking dénouement. Chocolate connoisseurs hoping to venture beyond the orchard can peruse gourmet pretzel rods ($6.75) dunked in specialty toppings, or prep for a trip to Candy Land by exchanging dollars for cashew turtle clusters ($6.25) or chocolate-covered Oreos ($7.95).
