Pumpkin spice may be the most popular flavor once fall arrives, but you can’t forget the other star of the season — apple!
Whether you like yours in pie, prefer them covered in caramel or enjoy other treats with apple flavoring, there are plenty of ways to enjoy apples in the fall. One favorite seasonal treat, of course, comes when apples are pressed into cider.
And this year, there’s a new way to enjoy apple cider you probably haven’t had before — in a potato chip! New Kettle Brand Apple Cider Vinegar potato chips are here to transport you from the living room to an apple-picking orchard … without even having to leave your house.
The chips are a not-so-traditional spin on the classic sea salt and vinegar potato chip flavor. These pack a tangy punch with a crunchy bite. They’re rounded out with a crisp sweet apple finish.
Like many fall treats, the chips are a limited edition, so they won’t be around for long. You can find them at select retailers nationwide at a suggested retail price of $3.99 for an 8-ounce bag.
While there may not be as many apple-flavored foods as there are pumpkin treats this time of year, there are plenty of other products you can pick up if apples are your favorite.
When it comes to snacks, you can also get organic apple pie rice cakes from Lundberg Family Farm. Or, try caramel and cinnamon apple mix popcorn from Smartfood, which will be available all fall and winter nationwide. It has no artificial flavors or preservatives.
If you prefer your apples as dessert, Kit Kat makes an apple pie flavor and Breyers has a limited-edition caramel apple pie layered dairy dessert. This features a layer of creamy vanilla with real apples between two layers of caramel Breyers, plus crunchy shortbread pie crust pieces. It will be available at retailers nationwide through December.
These apple pie cookies from Lovely Little Kitchen are like miniature apple pies so you don’t have to share. Or, you could try Soulfully Made’s caramel apple dump cake. Pillsbury’s apple cinnamon bubble-up bake not only puts a fun twist on apple pie but is also easy to make.
