Reason to eat an apple a day:

Amyís Candy Kitchen

Step into Amyís Candy Kitchen, W62 N579 Washington Ave., Cedarburg, and you will come to understand how Adam and Eve were tempted by an apple. Never have apples looked and tasted so ridiculously good. 

Dipped in caramel, coated with Belgian chocolate, M&Ms, Oreos, nuts - the maddeningly mouthwatering list goes on. It would be a sin not to eat one.

The Granny Smith apples average 1 1/2 pounds, their tartness perfectly complementing their sweet, sweet coating. The key to Amyís apples, says owner John Lillegren, is their caramel. ďOur caramel is all homemade, which is very rare these days. Itís an old recipe, heavily guarded. There are no additives. Itís soft, and doesnít stick to your teeth.Ē
