That's SOME Apple

THE HoneyCrisp Apple.

No existential crises today on the blog. Phew!

But I do have to one question for you: How much is too much for an apple?

In other words, when you buy your produce how much do you typically spend on, say, apples?

Why, do you ask?

Well, thanks for asking. (Ha!)

You see, yesterday when I was grocery shopping I asked Bam to pick out the apples. (She's our apple eater.)

And so she did. 

She looked at the choices (which seemed like they were in the hundreds), grabbed a pre-packed sack, and put them in the cart.

To me, and my untrained eye, they looked like your average apples. But oh, how wrong was I. Apparently Bam picked out the Apples of All Apples.

How do I know? 

As I was putting the receipt in my bag, my eye caught the price of said-apples:

6 apples = $15.70

I nearly fell over when I saw that price. I may have paid $500.00 for a rotisserie chicken on Survivor Caramoan, but that was after not eating for 28+ days. I've never, truly never in my whole life, paid $2.00+ for an apple. What the what?

Should I have returned them for a less-expensive apple? (I was considering it.) 


Turns out cost may correlate with quality in some cases.

Who knew?

Thanks, Bam. I know I was cranky cracking up during AppleGate, but I'm honestly so glad you found those apples. I'm pretty sure everyone would eat more apples if they tasted like the HoneyCrisp.
