TOPIC:  Apples…

Posted:   9/26/2018, 4:34 a.m. EDT

 

Next to bacon, apples are probably the world's yummiest food.  Apples have contributed much to world history, including plunking Sir Isaac Newton in the head, tempting Eve, and of course there's apple pie.  Honey Crisp are arguably the best brand of apple, even though I don't think John E. Appleseed necessarily planted any of those trees.  The University of Minnesota came up with the original Honey Crisp recipe, and I think it was the Apple Company who first marketed the yummy little red balls of deliciousness back in 1991 (look it up!).  So, thanks a lot Johnboy for planting all the apple trees.  On this day we will overlook all the evil and sinister carbohydrates they contain.
