Hang Tag: Caramel apples were originated in the 1950s by Dan Walker, an employee at Kraft Foods. The invention resulted from experimentation with holiday candy. The caramels were simply melted down and added to apples. Today, the Caramel Apple is a fun treat during harvest and holiday seasons.

Each figural glass ornament produced for The Merck Family's Old World Christmas is handcrafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds available only to the Merck Family's Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
