Sugar High – Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

Thank you to everyone for the warm welcome :) Even though I miss NYC  it’s lovely to be back and continue blogging! I was getting an itch and wanted to blog so much when I was there ~

Now to my second post, once again I was really torn between all the fabulous places we visited and I know Mr Bao isn’t going to agree with this, but I decided to my second post will be about the AMAZING caramel apple I bought at – Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in the Jersey Garden Outlets. Very briefly Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is an all American and old-fashioned candy and chocolate store with locations all around America :) good news for those who aren’t in New York ~

Conveniently located near the entrance :)

We got to the Jersey Garden Outlet pretty early, at around 10:15am (they opened at 10am), we didn’t want to waste any shopping time ~ But Rocky Mountain wasn’t open then, so we did our shopping and just before we were going to leave…I quickly dashed into the store to check it out and that was probably one of the best decisions I made throughout the whole trip.

Why? Well prepare yourself! Because I am now going to take you to my heaven :)

Variety of candy and caramel apples!

Sorry if that sounds a little exaggerated, but I’m still reminiscing over the candy apples! Just look at them! All the different types of candy and caramel apples you can think of! There was one covered in mini M&Ms, a Rocky Road one and even an Apple Pie candy apple!

S'mores Caramel Apple $6.95USD

I regret not trying this caramel apple :( just in case you can’t read the description – this was a Granny Smith apple dipped in caramel , then rolled in white confection (I assume icing sugar) then rolled in chocolate chips, mini marshmallows then finished with graham crackers. My mouth is watering SO SO SO badly right now!

Ultimate Apple $6.95USD and Candy Apple $3USD

We were all pretty tired from shopping so I quickly asked the shop assistant (who wasn’t very nice) what their signature apple was and she suggested that ‘Ultimate Apple’ oh boy it was so delectable! It’s basically a Granny Smith apple dipped in caramel sauce, rolled in crushed pecans, then rolled in crushed Oreos and finished off with icing sugar drizzled all over it! It was one of the most PLEASURABLE things I have eaten in such a long time!

I know most of you must think this is sickeningly sweet… but honestly it wasn’t that bad because the tartness of the Granny Smith really balanced it out ~ but then…don’t take my word for it I’m immune to sugar ~

WARNING - Very hard to bite into it ~

I also got the traditional candy apple, be warned though the toffee was really hard and it took me a good minute or two to bite into it :) It was much easier to eat the Ultimate apple because the caramel dipping was still soft when I ate it.

Mr Bao didn’t even try the Ultimate! He said it just too sweet and that it made him sick just looking and thinking about the caramel sauce hahaha

They also have an array of chocolate, barks, chocolate dipped marshmallows in their cabinets ~

Chocolate cabinet

I bought Mr Bao a dark chocolate dipped marshmallow, but unfortunately he said there wasn’t anything special to it. Doesn’t matter, as long as I have my Ultimate Apple I’m happy :) I went a little crazy and had the candy apple for breakfast, hence, I was on a sugar high all day long ~

I very politely demand you find a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory when you go to America next time! You’ll be in heaven like me! And for anyone going to New York definitely go to the Jersey Garden outlets! Mr Bao and I shopped so much, everything was on sale and a bargain to buy!

    wow looks like a sugar high indeed! Never been a fan of caramel apples but I would love to give this a try. Apple is still a fruit so it’s acceptable breakfast food :) and it counts for one of your 5 a day!

    Oh my! I love candy apples (that’s the only way I really like raw apples apart from in Bircher muesli :P) and this is candy apple heaven! :D

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet January 22, 2012 at 3:20 am Reply

      Exactly! It’s a candy apple heaven! I was in heaven :) Amazing place hehe I don’t mind raw apples but candy apples are the best way to eat them ~

    I can’t believe the size of those toffee apples. They are enormous! And who doesn’t love a toffee apple! That is a fabulous shop selling every conceivable thing if you need a sugar high.

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet January 22, 2012 at 3:14 am Reply

      Yeah i know! They were massive :) i swear they chose larger apples cuz I don’t think granny smith apples I get from Coles in Melbourne are that big!

      I’d love to be on a sugar high everyday from the things this shop sells hehe

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet January 22, 2012 at 2:50 am Reply

      Really? I would’ve thought the S’mores would’ve been too sweet and rich for you! Because I remember you telling me you don’t really have much of a sweet tooth hehe :) Can’t wait to read your Malaysia posts too ~

    Fabulous candy apples. I’ve only seen the basic toffee apples here but I still loved them as a kid. We always made them for Halloween. The candy looks amazing as do the huge apples. : ) GG

    Those toffee apples look fabulous….as does that chocolate cabinet!! Yum!

    Yum, my sisters brought back tons of pictures of these crazy covered caramel apples when they visited California back in the summer! I have always wanted to try an Oreo one! and I LOVE the sound of the s’mores one! Sorry the lady who served you wasn’t friendly – I have always found the staff in shops to be super friendly over there, that’s one of the things I love about America!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet January 24, 2012 at 6:04 pm Reply

      Hello Gem :) Maybe you can try making your own Oreo-one hehe I love how they have so many Oreo flavoured desserts over in the States hehe

      Yeah I agree most people are so lovely there but this lady was just rude…and when I asked if they had any stores else where…she just said ‘no here is the only one’ but then there’s like many stores across the country! Sigh if i had known I would’ve had bought more candy apples >_<

      You should make another trip to the States you'll love it!

    Teehee, I remember taking photos of every single kind of candy apple in RMCF back in 2007, because it blew my mind! I’ve always disliked apples with chocolate and candy, though, so I never bought one. I knew I’d just eat the outside and skip the inside ;)
