Caramel apples?

A billboard I saw on the way home today brought this inane question to mind: were caramel apples invented as a way to hide bad fruit? In the US at least, they're most popular in the late fall (around Halloween)..so maybe they are a way to cover up the less-than-desirable bottom-of-the-barrel apples to make them marketable.

According to one web site they were invented by a guy from Kraft, which kind of makes sense. I'm sure they employ dozen of people whose sole job is to think up new recipes for their existing products. But I'm still going to work on my cynical theory.
