KENNEWICK, WA - There's a new candy store in Kennewick specializing in caramel apples. MOM's Caramel Apples opened about a week ago.
The caramel is made fresh every day and there's more than 20 apples on the menu, including a "Create Your Own" option.
Ana Garza, the owner, got the inspiration for the store after eating a tamarind apple, an apple covered in Mexican candy.
Garza has a second store in Sunnyside--the store is called MOM's Candy Apple--but opened the Tri-Cities location because the demand was so high.
"I don't see my customers as customers--I see them as my friends and family," said Garza. "If it wasn't for them...you know God uses us to bless each other and so I feel like he's using them to bless me and I'm happy I'm able to bless them with my apples," she added.
MOM's Caramel Apples is located at 5610 W Clearwater, Suite C, next to Mi Linda Sierra Restaurant in Kennewick. They are open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
