About ApricotKing

Since 1946, the Gonzales family has grown the rare and fabulous California Blenheim apricots. Grown on our Hollister ranch, we continue to be the farmer, pruner, dryer, packer, and seller of the vanishing Blenheim apricot. We produce the best tasting apricots in the world all "Home Grown in the Flavor Zone"!

In addition to our incredible dried apricots, be sure to discover our variety of nuts (walnuts, pistachios, almonds) and other dried fruits (peaches, pears, prunes, and more). For those who believe less is more, we have dark and delicious unsulfured dried apricots. And don't forget our sweet and tart selection of apricot jams and syrups as well as our decadent chocolate covered fruits and nuts.  Simply delicious! Everything here on the ranch is organically grown.

PUDDLES (Caramel + Chocolate + Apricots)

PEOPLE .....

THEY'RE IN STOCK.....But use discretion when ordering.

Some call them CRACK. ..........we call them  PUDDLES

Certainly our number one gift item:  

We invented them.

Became addicted to them.

Nobody else makes them in the world.


Puddles are a soft Blenheim apricot  filled with a "puddle" of caramel ....wait for it...and enrobed with dark chocolate.

Voila! You have a decadent treat and one of our best sellers.

12 oz. Bag

When in doubt, we won't ship it out.  Temperatures have to be cool to send.

  1. Great Treat

    Posted by Liz on Nov 25th 2023

    I usually just buy the slabs but when I buy these, they go fast. Really good! Really, really good!

  2. Sea Salt on the carmel/chocolate apricots would be an excellent addition!!!

    Posted by GARY Rushane on Nov 8th 2023

    The addition of Sea salt (big chunks) on the dipped overripe cots would be rated 5 stars any day in my book. Great product as it is......

  3. Heavenly Combination!

    Posted by Jen on Oct 29th 2023

    Apricots and chocolate are fantastic but add that dollop of caramel and they go to another level. Puddles are a family favorite in our house!

  4. Great tastes

    Posted by Rich on Mar 28th 2023

    Awesome taste. Well worth the price. Highly recommend.

  5. Puddles rule!

    Posted by Sandra on Mar 9th 2023

    Well when it can't get any better...it does! First time that I ordered Puddles...and every word in the item description is more than true! Love them! I don't like dark chocolate, really not a great fan of chocolate covered fruit other than strawberries!!! But these are amazingly delicious, so much so hard to resist! The quality of the chocolate alone is outstanding, my husband said but I thought you didn't like dark chocolate!!!??!!! Dried apricots on the top of my all time favorite foods (since childhood) and add caramel..how can you not just try it! Well..adding another winner to my ApricotKing list of greatness!

  6. Wow...these are too good, they won't last long in this house!

    Posted by Sandra on Mar 8th 2023

    Well the perfect combination of yummy dried apricot, caramel and dark chocolate!!! I only consume dark chocolate if that is all there is in the house otherwise..no way, until I received these tasty morsels!!! Perfect for party food and having something sweet and tart at the same time but sure to please everyone! And surely good to have at home (if they can last) to more than satisfy the sweet tooth, or caramel craving...or chocolate all at once! The dark chocolate on these tasty morsel will compete with any milk chocolate out there. You will become a fan of dark chocolate!!!

    Love these chocolate, caramel filled apricots. Best of both worlds, get your fruit and sweets.

  8. Delicious!

    Posted by Lynne C on Dec 7th 2022

    Last year my order was shipped incorrectly. This issue was addressed immediately and I was told to keep the items sent. Definitely a happy accident! We're now in love with puddles. Just the right portion of apricot chocolate and caramel! They're hard to share.

  9. A little piece of heaven

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 5th 2022

    Unfortunately you cannot eat just one! But there is fruit in them so they are healthy, right? Absolutely the best!

    What a great combination of flavors, my husband didn't think he would like them, now I have to hide them until I order more.
