The Story Behind Carcamo’s
Carcamo’s Gourmet Caramel Apples was founded back in 2013 after Julio Carcamo came across the concept of caramel apples while on a business trip in the US. With a vision to bring this idea to Australian shores, Julio and his partner worked on perfecting the recipe of their apples for almost a year. They now sell caramel apples as unique edible gifts and special treats on their online store, and at Westfield Chermside.
In the five years since their conception, Carcamo’s have dreamed up nine delicious flavour combinations. The most popular? An apple pie flavour consisting of buttery home made caramel, coated in white chocolate and rolled in spice-infused cinnamon sugar. You’ll also find crowd-favourite flavours like Oreo, Snickers, Tim Tam and Peanut Chocolate.
A Healthier Treat?
While treats like caramel apples definitely belong in the pointy end of the food pyramid, Carcamo’s are committed to using the best quality, all-natural ingredients in their products. Each batch of caramel is made with the freshest dairy products. You won’t find any trans fats, artificial colours or shelf-retaining preservatives.
Each of their apples are grade A jumbo granny smiths sourced fresh from the grower, and Belgian couverture chocolate is used to coat the caramel apples.
The Perfect Present
If you intend to gift one of Carcamo’s caramel apples, it’ll be carefully packaged up in an elegant gift box with a hand tied bow and personalised message. All of their apples are made fresh to order from their online store, but you can also pick them up from their Westfield Chermside store. Make sure you also have a look at their range of decadent caramel apple gift baskets.
