Let's Talk Apples
The Red Delicious apple being called the Red Delicious apple is a serious misnomer. Whoever named this particular apple took Marketing 101 and was really really really trying to sell it with the tried and true technique of lying. I should be called the Red Disgusting apple. Their slogan "Best Known Apple in the World" says it all, I mean, if it was truly delicious, it would read "Best Tasting Apple in the World." But it can't say that, because that is a lie. Produce Profile: Red Disgustings are often tasteless, mealy and soft, with a waxy, bitter skin. Primarily used in dishes where taste is not an issue. Perfect for making your own bong. Ditto for their blonde sisters, Golden Disgusting apples.
