    Any other habitual apple eaters?

    Thought I'd start the weirdest post of the day. Ever since I can recall, I'm guessing around 15-20 years or so I have eaten, or damn near close, an apple every day. I just find them to be a very refreshing, yet filling snack.

    My question to you is, "What is your favorite kind of apple?"

    Mine, without question, is Pink Lady.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Any other habitual apple eaters?

    I eat an apple pretty much every day with my lunch. At least during the week. I'm not quite as good about it on the weekend. I voted Red Delicious since that is what I usually get. Once in a while I will get some Granny Smiths for a change of pace.

    Re: Any other habitual apple eaters?

    Braeburns are the perfect combination of sweet & tart. Love 'em!

    If you didn't vote for honeycrisp I'm guessing you've never had one.

    I would say the same for Chieftains, especially when you factor in price.

    Honeycrisp is my #1B apple. Fantastic.

    Re: Any other habitual apple eaters?

    I can not believe Red Delicious is currently tied for the lead. You all are aware that it is without a doubt the least flavorful apple aren't you? The only reason it was ever mass produced is for the color. Cardboard has more flavor than a Red Delicious apple.

    On a side note the Red Delicious cultivar was started from a wild apple tree growing in Peru, Iowa.

    So...does it keep them away? I didn't see my fave on the list- carmel.

    Re: Any other habitual apple eaters?

    I think Honeycrisp and Pink Lady are fairly similar really. Pink Lady has a bit more of a tart taste... which I enjoy. Braeburn is also pretty similar as well.

    I voted for Jazz just based on it's dirty connotation.

    ANNNNDDDD it has a longer storage life than Honeycrisp so it is available more often.
