It’s true. I am in love. I just discovered a new apple. It is delightful! AND it comes from New Zealand! One of my favorite places in the whole world! Ran across the Sonya apple at Target yesterday and bought a couple just to try them. Anything that says New Zealand on it is like a huge neon sign to me that says “buy me buy me”. Just because. I love this apple! It is crisp and light and simply wonderful! I love this time of year because the apples are so good and since I am trying (though not always successfully) to eat a bit healthier I have tried to include more fruits and vegs in my diet. Enter the apple. I do admit to slathering a bit of peanut butter on them at times and sometimes even a bit of a great peanut butter raspberry spread that I got at Harry and David’s the last time I shopped at the outlet. The price is a bit costly—(why is eating healthy always a bit expensive?) because the Sonya apple ran $1.89 per pound so these 2 little beauties ran me an even $2.00 which is a bit pricey but well worth it in taste. So go out and find a Sonya apple, treat yourself to a delicious fall snack and enjoy!!!! Tell me what you think!!!
