Affy tapple in history

In 1948 the first Affy Tapple was invented by the Kastrup family and their recipe was developed by Mrs. Edna Kastrup.

This was the first caramel apple in the United States with the tagline "The Original Caramel Apple!"

The Kastrup family opened the Affy Tapple store at Clark Street in Chicago in 1952.

They started as a fundraising tradition, selling it to local schools. In 1995 the company was sold to private investors.
