Description
I remember this in the 70's also. Wrapples were a flat sheet of caramel that came in individual sheets of plastic. You pulled the plastic off and wrapped the caramel sheets around an apple and baked it in the oven to make caramel apples.So So good and so so sweet!

These were such a great idea - why did they ever get rid of them??

People used to make these and give them out for Halloween treats. Sometimes, you can still find these in produce departments during the Fall.

Put the wrapple on an apple. Put the apple on a stick. Then you stick it in the oven. And you eat it mighty quick.

I remember the TV commercial in the 70s that had two people dressed like clowns illustrating how to make wrapples, similar to the Shields and Yarnell thing. My sister and I were making them in the 70s and accidentally dropped one on the kitchen floor. The caramel split in a particular way that made it look like the apple had a big smile on its face, as if it was telling us 'have a nice day' (appropriate for the 70s). :o)

I remember the commercial with the clowns. I thought it was a Raggedy Ann doll. All I could remember of the song was "Take a Wrapple and an apple..." Thanks for finishing it for me! :o) Hey KRAFT, you guys shoudl reintroduce WRAPPLES!

When it's time for Carmel Apples, I always remember that commercial. I'm glad others do, too.

My dad worked at Kroger part time when I was a kid. He brought home lots of 70s food, damaged or just on its sell-by date (he even invented--at his store, anyway--the dented & torn bargain rack). In addition to the Kroger-brand Hostess-type cakes and cereals, he brought home Wrapples. We discovered that they were FANTASTIC wrapped around pretzel rods. Something about the salt and the sweet.

There was a kid in my class at shool named Rathbone (poor devil)and we used to call him Wrapple and sing the wrapple song to him. Later when we got older we had fun with the "bone" part of the name.40 years later,I worry that he's lurking outside my door with a chainsaw and a mask(possibly made from a Wrapple) Guess i'd have to change my handle to Hauntedheadless

This particular brand was discontinued long ago, but the basic product can still be found in grocery stores around fall. I've seen it sold under a number of different brands, but generally you'll find it in the produce department near the apples.

They didn't work as good as they were shown on the TV commercials. The bottom wouldn't melt.
