The Taste Sensation of a Honeycrisp Apple

There are few foods that when you experience that "first taste" give you a sensation like you're a kid tasting things for the first time.

Some of things that come to mind is the first gulp of a cold beer on a hot day (of course beer is food); the first hot crispy french fry dipped in Heinz ketchup; first chocolate chip cookie off the cookie sheet; and first hot donut at the cider mill.

Yep, all the above are memories (I do sneak french fries once in a while however) so that's why I'm geeked on Honeycrisp apples. No guilt, no fat, few calories, and the first bite of a Honey Crisp is like an orgy of flavors bursting all at once.

The Honeycrisp apple was produced from a 1960 cross of Macoun and Honeygold, as part of the University of Minnesota apple breeding program. Why it took nearly 50 years to reach the markets, I have no idea.

Honeycrisp's blow Granny's away. Red Delicious tastes like paste compared to a Honeycrisp. The only way to describe the taste sensation is to taste one. Virtually every market sells them so what are you waiting for?

Now I'm thinking how I can tie in Honeycrisp's into the beauty market. Perhaps lotions, lip balms, room scents. Hmm, but I gotta go. I need a Honeycrisp.

Happy Thursday!
