Candy & Caramel Apples in Coney Island

It's so sad about Coney Island. So often the city doesn't take care of the unique and special spots that make it the amazing place it is. It's more than likely that Coney Island will change drastically in the next few years and we'll lose something truly historical.

These are some treats a friend and I indulged in recently, as we savored the last bits of summer on the boardwalk amidst the craziness of Coney.

The Caramel Apple was a Macintosh. Unfortunately, it was really mealy and not tart enough to balance out the sweetness of the caramel. My friend also noted that the caramel was not buttery enough. However, all of that did not keep her from happily finishing her apple.

The Candy Apple was made with a Granny Smith. It too was slightly mealy, but regardless it was delicious. The candy shell was hard and crunchy, and the tartness of the juicy apply balanced out the sugary sweetness. It was yummy summer fun, best enjoyed in the salty air with amusement park sounds in the background.
