Halloween Apples

9 posts in this topic

LONDON (Reuters) - Stenciling, long the preserve of interior decorators, has been adapted by British apple growers to create fruit with Halloween designs on their skins.

They fixed food-friendly plastic stencils of pumpkins and witches on a English apple variety called Falstaff, before the fruit had ripened.

Once exposed to sunlight, the apple's skin turned red while the part covered by the stencil remained green.

The result is a ready-made prop for October 31, said supermarket chain Waitrose which is stocking the enhanced fruit.

The store said other designs, such as love hearts for Valentine's Day

As a Mum I would love to see them handed out instead of chocolate . The kids bounce around for hours after a sugar rush with a touch of caffine in it ;D

It was also in the local news here that people had been getting apples and putting smilie faces on to them, so that when they ripened the apples had the faces on them.

I'm a mom too, but Halloween is almost the only time it's allowed, and as for the sugar rush, well..that's part of the celebration! Get as much candy as possible and try to eat it in the shortest amount of time! (had to slow things down the past few years, checking to make sure nothing harmful inside - AND pick out MY favorite ones!!) ;D

It worries me that people are sick enough to put dangerous objects in a kids sweet bag.
