    Sat here eating an apple and reading some of the threads that pop up on the main TSR page thinking what can I come up with that's never been asked before (hopefully)..
    Every time I go food shopping I cant' help but notice that while in the grocery section people only go for a type of apple rather than a selection, but that might be because its cheaper to buy a pack (or more) rather than a variety, and what I'm curious about is to find out if people have a favorite? Very random I know, but everyone I know have their preferences.

    Red Delicious, normally the juciest I think. Granny Smith's aren't up too much imo.

    Braeburns, sweet, crunchy, juicy and flavoursome without a really thick skin like Granny Smiths.

    My husband :-) likes Jonagold because they're huge and half the price of any other apple, and he thinks they're crunchy, juicy, sweet without being too sweet and a nice mix of red-yellow. Personally I think they're rather tasteless though.

    Crunchy yes, but not so crunchy that your teeth have to break sweat in order to get a bite!

    You can't really go for a selection of apples, as you pay as per the weight of the brand of apple. You can't put through 3 Granny Smith, 3 Braeburn and 3 Red Delicious as any one type, and to go through the whole bag to make sure that you have all the right ones... It's annoying!

    Gala are usually cheapest, so I go for those. If I'm feeling rich, Braeburn it is!

    I LOVE apples though!

    Pink Lady. I adore Pink Lady apples, they're just scrumptious. So crisp, so juicy! I had a Cripps Pink yesterday though, which was also awesome.

    I tend to just buy 3 or 4 separately because it works out cheaper sometimes than buying them bagged, plus it means I don't end up with a huge bag of apples that I'm struggling to eat for 2 weeks! But Tesco have big bags of Pink Lady apples for £1.50 at the minute so that's uber good value
