The Pomme d’amour  literally means “love apple” and is called “apple candy” in English. It is one of the best-seller on Christmas markets, in France and in other western countries. Originally chosen in a bright red color and coated with sugar, they are now found in many different variations. Apart from Christmas time, these delicacies can be found all year long in fairs. 

 


 
The Pomme d’Amour is a very simple candy: an apple placed on a skewer and coated with red caramel. 

 


 
They are the enemy of the dentist, but the big favorite of the kids. They were first seen at the beginning of the 20th Century in New Jersey, United States. Again and as for many other inventions, his inventor, who was a confectioner called William Kolb; found this recipe just by chance. He had the idea of dipping a nice apple in the candies he was preparing. 
 
 
Why is it called the Love apple? Until then, the Pomme d’amour was only referring to tomatoes. The Candy apple is so similar by its shape and glossy red color that the name was transferred.
