Pressing Question of the Day

Are caramel and carmel the same thing? More importantly, is carmel even a word outside of being the name of a city in Indiana? I don't think I've ever said the word caramel. Now I know the little candies are supposed to be caramels, but the adopted slang of carmel takes over. But is it carmel apples, or caramel apples? I know you carmelize sugar when cooking, but is the end product carmel or caramel?

Some things I just need to know.
