If you appreciate apples then this is your time of year. The stores are overflowing with several different varieties and the prices are low. I have to admit it was the low prices that got my attention as I perused the produce area of the supermarket the other day.

When I was a kid we only had two kinds of apples. We had the big red ones, those were the snacking apples. We also had the green ones, Granny Smith's, those were for pies and caramel apples and relieving constipation. So I was quite impressed at the array of choices spread out before me.

Since I am a scientist, or at least I walk around  my house in a lab coat for fun. I decided to buy one of several different varieties of apples just to try them out. I tried the Fuji, it was okay. The Jazz it was like the music, interesting but it made me feel like I was carrying a piano.Then I met Honeycrisp.

The Honeycrisp Apple might be the best apple you will ever put in your mouth. The texture of the flesh is firm and crunchy. Each bite is met with a burst of delicious juicy flavor. The smell is heavenly and the satisfaction level is off the charts. This apple could be dessert. That is how good it is. It is also very healthy for you too.

Here is another fact I found out about apples, they can help you wake up in the morning and stay awake during the day. Apples not only have  a nice boost of natural sugar but there is also some caffeine included. So if you're looking for a great pick me up and a delicious treat that won't make you feel the same shame as downing a box of Twinkies give my Honeycrisp apples a try. Let me know what you think.
