  • Apples are good.
  • I used to love Granny Smith, but now I prefer a slightly sweeter (but not too sweeter) Golden Delicious or Fuji. My grandfather had the most awesome, incredible apple tree in his backyard, they were a mix of pink lady and something else and they were just the best! Wish we could've taken the tree when we sold the house (looked up planting seeds, but apparently planting seeds from an apple doesn't quite produce the same tree or something, kinda makes you rethink the whole Johnny Appleseed story!)
  • A favorite evening snack is an apple with a bit of peanut butter. (Peanut butter is my #1 favorite food!!).
    If you haven't tried eating a Honey Crisp, you MUST! Not sure why but hubby and I ate this apple for the first time in the fall. Hubby picked up some at Costco which had just been delivered. We were hooked and once they were gone, I ordered some directly from a New York grower. Simply put - AWESOME! Being from VA, we have always gone directly to the mountains and bought Staymans picked right from the orchards. Now, the Honey Crisps have replaced the Staymans as our favorite eating apple.
    It is the 12th of Sept. here in Virginia, and the HONEYCRISPS are at the store! Our all-time favorite - yeah!!!
    Good advice on using different kinds of apples in pies. I never thought of it.

    My favorites are honey crisps and cameo. Hard to find in the stores tho.
    How about the lesser known fruit? Passion fruit is a power source of nutrients, according to studies, and most of it pointing to some medicinal benefits. If you are suffering from high cholesterol levels, cancer, constipation, or coronary heart disease, then this fruit could play a key factor in your recovery. While the fruit may not always be easily available, has an all natural passion fruit juice in Markizza Passion Fruit Juice available on Amazon. It’s all natural and refreshing, not from concentrate. Read about passion fruits to see for yourself.
  • I'm a huge fan of the softer apples. The harder ones are almost too fibrous...But they do taste good with peanut butter.
  • I like golden delicious, pink lady, and gala apples for snacking. I totally agree with the person who said that red delicious tastes like red mediocre! The skin is too bitter and ruins the apple for me.
  • There are so many common apples that are not listed here. Would have liked to have seem a more comprehensive list.
  • I love apples! I take some with me to work and they are filling too just gotta wash them real well or buy organic which is hard at times. I also am an avid fan of GoodBelly, which is a vegan and dairy free probiotic drink. I've been hooked since 2008 as soon as I heard about it. It helps with digestion, IBS issues and supports the immune system.
    Love Honeycrisp apples! Zestar apples also make my mouth water. But SweeTango is my new favorite. All began in my home state of Minnesota!
  • After eating Honey Crisp and Pink Lady apples, you'll never want to eat a Red Delicious again. In my opinion, they're more like Red Mediocre.
  • I love every variety of grown. I eat 3 or more per day. They are convenient, easy to digest and low in sugar/fat. LOVE THEM!
  • I love apples! Although the article says to refrigerate your apples, I have found that they taste much better at room temperature. For that reason, I only put the apples we will eat the same day in my fruit basket in the morning. Then they are room temperature and ready to eat for a snack or at mealtimes. In addition, seeing them out reminds me to make them part of my nutrition planning and they make a pretty table decoration! I eat at least one apple a day. I checked out the link in the article that led me to the mention of Tammi Flynn's book "The 3 Apple A Day Book." I plan to take a look at this book.
