    Okayyy went to buy some fresh fruits & veggies today and had to get my all time favorite Fall Treat-------------Macintosh Apples with a tub of Caramel Dip:love::love::love::love::love:I also add crushed nuts to the slices after I dip them into the caramel:p



    Just wondering what kind of Apples are your favorite...any special way you like them...recipes?

    Is it bad that I don't ever really think too much about the different tastes? I always lose track of the kind of apple that I have (except for the sticker on it that says what it is :)). I love apple pie, but rarely have that...am most used to just slicing an apple up into four pieces and eating it at lunch, ha.

    Caramel dip sounds delicious, though...

    I get goosebumps not only when I eat apples, but even when I see others eating them. I love them but don't eat much of any of them.

    I like granny smiths best but I'll eat any kind except macintosh. Those just rub me the wrong way. I like apple crisp better than apple pie so that's what I usually make. I do like the caramel dip. There's an apple fest in a few weeks so I might check it out.

    Pink Lady's are my all time favorite, with Granny Smith's just a little ways back. I like hard and crisp with lots of juice. Both of these favorites keep well without becoming mealy. I like Weinsaps, but no one else in the house will eat them, so they stay at the store.

    And caramel is the PERFECT compliment to the perfect apple!

    I like Fuji apples. Once in a blue moon, I'll go to the Rocky Mtn Chocolate factory & get a candy apple. I like their Apple Pie Apple. Haven't gotten one in at least a year now.

    My favorites are Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Haralson, and SweeTango. I like apples, but I don't buy them very often.

    I have a few apples on my tree in the yard! I think they are red delicious but I"m not sure. I think I'll pick them and make a small apple crisp. I don't think I have enough to make a pie! My fruit trees don't seem to do well at all :(

    I developed an allergic reaction to apples, peaches, and nectarines. Some of my favorite fruits...:(

    Honeycrisps are my absolute favorite!!! And I like apples just about any way you can fix them... except juice. I definitely OD'd on apple juice as a kid.

    Peregrin5 - I feel your pain. It stinks to develop an allergy to a favorite food as an adult!

    I can't stomach apple juice but I love apple cider! Yesterday I treated myself to a Starbuck's Caramel Apple Spice drink. I've waited all year for that!

    I love Honeycrisp apples, but almost never buy them because they tend to cost twice as much as other varieties. One of our local markets has huge bins of apples fresh from the orchard--yesterday I picked up some Mutsu--love them at this time of year!

    Wow, that is sad. :( I love peaches and apples, so that would really depress me. That said, can you still eat citrus and melons? The seasons aren't as broad, but at least there would be great fruit to enjoy!
