When it comes to gift-giving, indulgent treats are often favored over extremely healthy ones, but Edible is now making it easy for consumers to enjoy the best of both worlds with a unique chocolate-covered apple treat.
Edible, which specializes in fresh fruit arrangements, added to its product assortment with 'Edible Donuts,' which are shaped and packaged to resemble baked, glazed confections—but in actuality take the form of sliced Granny Smith apples that are dipped in gourmet semisweet chocolate. The donut-inspired apple treats are topped off with sprinkles for added color and texture, making the fun and surprising snack experience feel all the more decadent.
Edible has introduced its donut-shaped dipped apple treats just ahead of National Donut Day this year, along with a special in-store promotion for the occasion.
