No Tricks, Just Treats for Northfleet Residents

There wasn’t a trick in sight at Dene Holm Residential Care Home in Northfleet this week, as residents enjoyed some treats in the form of chocolate dipped apples.

With Halloween and Bonfire Night just around the corner, residents of the Dene Holm Road care home decided to treat themselves to a scrumptious seasonal snack of chocolate covered apples.

Deciding toffee apples were just a bit too tough on the teeth, the hungry residents opted to dip their lovely fresh apples in melted chocolate instead, decorating them with sweets, sprinkles and marshmallows for an extra sweet treat.

A popular autumn treat loved by all ages, toffee apples were originally a Christmas treat and are said to have been invented in 1908 by veteran sweet-maker William W Kolb, experimenting with a Christmas-themed red cinnamon potion, he dropped in an apple and displayed them in his windows. The residents relished eating their apples and sharing nostalgic stories of the memories invoked.

Chris Hutchinson, Home Manager of Dene Holm said: “Halloween and Bonfire Night are going to be a bit different for us this year, like they will be for everyone, so we’re finding new things to do and finding joy in the little things, like delicious chocolate covered apples!”
