A large part of Tastee Apple's success comes from the quality of apples we use to produce our delicious, old-fashioned caramel and chocolate apples.  "The apple buying process is an integral piece in delivering the freshest and most delicious product to the consumer" says Steve Barker, Tastee Apple's apple buyer of 20 years.  With over 33 years of experience in the fruit grower's industry, Steve says building relationships and identifying the top companies whose resources enable them to meet and exceed all the safety requirements established by the USDA and Safe Quality Food standards are what is key in keeping the best apples for our process of caramel and chocolate coatings.  A combined effort between buying, transporting and producing our products in as little as a 24 hour time frame guarantees the highest level of freshness to our customers.  "We've identified the best apple varieties for our purpose to be the Jonathan, Empire and Granny Smith apples" states Barker.  So the next time you bite into one of our mouth-watering and delicious caramel or chocolate apples you can thank Steve Barker as one of the many people behind the success of Tastee Apple.  America's Favorite Caramel Apple Since 1974
