I know what you're thinking. You are thinking this will be a boring story about an apple. Well, thats not true! This isn't a story of evil queen giving a young girl a poisoned red apple causing her to fall into a coma. Members at the USApple Association do not like to talk about that incident. We also don't like to discuss the story of the two innocent lovers living in paradise until a serpent enticed them to eat from the forbidden tree that may or may not be an apple because that’s a entirely different story.
This apple is more interesting than the other 2500 apples varieties in the United States. If I was the only judge of the Most Interesting Apple
in the World Award, this apple would definitely be the winner. A story of a man who set out on a mission to fill a produce void for a firm, crisp and juicy apple. Finally, after decades of cross-pollinating, tasting and testing then testing and tasting. This deliciously exciting new branded apple variety was then born. Much like when a baby is born, naming this Washington apple involved several meetings with consumer focus groups around the state, until finally, a name was chosen. First name is “Cosmic” because they reminded the tasters of outer space and the cosmos. Last name of “Crisp” comes from their parent, ‘Honeycrisp’. Personalizing the green house with Cosmic Crisp® apples soon followed.
There are almost a dozen commercially available genetically modified crops in the United States. Enjoy Cosmic Crisp® apples with the peace of mind knowing they are not one of those crops. 20 years of study and research have resulted in an apple that is slow to brown when cut, maintain their firmness when baked and can even help improve skin when eaten.
Apples have been grown for thousands of years in Asia and Europe and were brought to North America by European colonists. And now the latest and greatest apple is a large bi-color fruit that is rich with water and fiber. One of the outstanding attributes of the apple is its crisp texture. With naturally higher levels of sugar, this apple allows chefs and bakers to reduce or eliminate the use of additional sugar in their recipes.
If for some strange reason Cosmic Crisp® apples wouldn’t win the Most Interesting Apple in the World Award, they have earned the Good Housekeeping Nutritionist Approved emblem. This emblem is only granted to products that have been reviewed by the Good Housekeeping Institute Food & Nutrition Lab. Good Housekeeping describes the products with the emblem to be nutritious, transparent and simple.
There are 50 different ways to prepare an apple to be consumed including simply eating it right out of your hands. Best of all, these remarkably delicious apples stay fresher almost twice as long as other apples when refrigerated. Check your local grocers for availability. The End.
Interesting story right? Now if you were also a judge of the Most Interesting Apple in the World Award, would the Cosmic Crisp® apples be the winner.
