Lunch Apple Take Two: You Didn't Do Right By Me

I should have gone with a standard apple like Fuji or Gala or even a (gasp) Golden Delicious. Instead, the big sign saying 'new apple' and the cutsie name 'Red Prince' were all I could see when I went to the store to buy more apples.

Soft spot free apples. Crisp yummy apples.

Well, Red Prince is soft spot free. It is crisp. It is way too much like my dreaded nemesis, Red Delicious, to be even close to a good apple.

I hate Red Delicious. They are the apples every school puts on your lunch tray, they come in 10 pound bags for $2 and they are disgusting. If they were the only apple I ever tried, I'd say I hate apples.

I should have been clued in that Red Prince can trace his roots to Red Delicious, by the obvious Red in their names, and when I think back, I'm pretty sure the sign said something about that too, but never in my wildest dreams would I think I'd bite into an apple that is WORSE than a Red Delicious.

Yes, my friends, my lunch apple do over was worse than the soft spot apple that made me gag a little.

So.....Orange, step up. You are my lunch time fruit today!
