just call me an apple snob

When it comes to apples, I'm definitely an apple snob.

Why?

Because I love Honeycrisps and honeycrisps are only in season during the fall/winter. You will rarely find me eating apples during the spring or summer. I won't settle for anything less than the best, and honeycrisps are definitely the best. Once you eat a honeycrisp, you won't ever want to put another apple in your mouth.

The only problem with honeycrisps is that you have to pay a pretty penny for these apples. They range anywhere from $2.25 a pound to $2.99 a pound. Honeycrisps are huge, so they tend to be quite expensive.

Today happened to be my luck day. I was at Target grabbing a couple of groceries and look what I saw....
Honeycrisps for $1.49 a pound.

I got 8 apples today and still paid $6. If I would have paid full price it would have been $12 for 8 apple. It sounds crazy to pay that much for apples, but even when they are $2.99 I'll still buy them. I'll just turn my head when the cashier rings them up so I don't have to see how much I'm paying for them.

If you haven't ever tried a Honeycrisp apple, please go try one. But be prepared to become an apple snob once you try one.

I think honeycrisps are only here for a few weeks in the fall.

Yay!! I was going to leave a comment on your facebook to go to Target and get some honeycrisps at a great price! I stumbled upon them yesterday, too. It's ridiculous how excited I got. :)

Wow, I don't think I've ever had a honeycrisp apple. I might have to hunt one down . . .
