Kraft - Wrapples - caramel apple kit package - 1977

    Newer Older

    I missed out on a couple chances to get a Wrapples package in the past, but I finally nabbed one this month.

    For those that don't remember, Wrapples were created to be a quick-and-easy way to make caramel apples.

    We got them a couple times in our house. The packages contained circular "sheets" of caramel that you would wrapper around the apple and warm up in the oven.

    Honestly though, I would quickly resort to just eating the caramel sheets right out of the package. Good stuff.

    Over time, this packaging has become a bit brittle, with small sections of the white background flaking away. Fortunately, the main part of the graphics are all intact, and hopefully I can keep this from deteriorating any further.

      Major childhood fun flashback. I remember these as a kid in the winter in Duluth,MN. I also remember the commercial with the clowns and the jingle,Id love to see that again

      I used to wrap them around a ball of peanut butter and microwave them in a bowl until it was a gooey mess. I remember watching late-nite TV with that snack concoction.

      These were delicious right out of the package as you said...sort of like a caramel fruit roll-up... :)

      I had those when I was a kid. They're quick and easy just like the Wrapples package says, and they're delicious. If you will excuse me, Kraft needs to bring Wrapples back. Thank you for posting this lost food treasure.

      They were a mess. We finally got smart and kept the caramel discs in the freezer, then just took them out and ate them.

      I just sent this link to my cousin...who is more like my brother. We wax nostalgic about everything from back in the day when we were growing up in the late sixties and seventies. He mentioned caramels that wrap around apples and I immediately remembered they were called Wrapples and even the yellow and red packaging. I do wonder why Kraft would discontinue this product, unless they didn't move well. I thought they were great and would buy them again. I actually was looking for them a few days ago, before I knew they had been discontinued years ago. I do enjoy all things retro, and the internet is wonderful for keeping your childhood alive.
