Let me be honest, I don't really like fruit. I'm not philosophically opposed to fruit, but I like white, tan, and brown flavors...cinnamon, vanilla, coffee, and hazelnut. And if it has color, I want it to be a vegetable, not fruit.
But I've slowly become an apple snob over the past couple years. An apple is an easy lunch fruit - it's not messy or sticky, and it doesn't go bad as quick as some of those softer flesh fruits like plum and peaches.
So, I've started buying different apples, sometimes based on what looks good, sometimes based on price, and as time has been passing, I've beginning to become an apple snob.
Maybe if there was enough apple snobs there could be a Starbuck's-like concept that just sells apples...I might go.
There's certainly flavors I haven't tried, and maybe one's I haven't had access to, but as it stands, my top 5 favorite apples...organic when available.
2. Cripps Pink (Pink Lady)
5. Granny Smith
And when I say Honeycrisp is my favorite, I don't think any apple could rival it, but there are so many types I'm sure I haven't tried...so some of those other apples could probably get the boot if I had the chance.
