Founder & Owner
It was at the 2012 Emery County Fair in Castle Dale, Utah marks where Darcey Powell discovered an opportunity to establish an innovative homemade caramel confections business.
She decided to rent a booth at the fair to sell plain caramel apples—something that every fair should have available. The apples were so well received and she was able to buy new appliances for her kitchen with money made from the fair! She pondered the thought of what could happen if she embellished the caramel apples with other toppings.
Subsequent to her discovery, Powell established The Forbidden Fruit, a caramel confections manufacturer and distributor based in Cleveland, Utah.
Since the business was established in 2004, The Forbidden Fruit has flourished from a small home-based business into a well established sweet shoppe with a full commercial kitchen and boutique. Powell has created fifteen caramel apple flavors including “Strawberry Splendor,” “Glazed Pecan” and “Chocolate Toffee” which can be found online, in the sweet shoppe or through various vendors. The Forbidden Fruit also specializes in gourmet chocolate candies and specialty items for holidays, weddings, and special occasions such as the birth of a new baby.
