A Honeycrisp Apple Conspiracy Brewing at Costco?
There’s a juicy discussion that's been ripening recently among Costco members. The buzz? Some think the Honeycrisp apples sold at Costco might not be true Honeycrisps. 🍏😲 The main points of contention include a noticeable dip in flavor quality, an unusually uniform color, and a missing crunch that Honeycrisp enthusiasts swear by.
If true, this could blow the lid off the produce world…Or, more likely, these variations are simply the fruits of regional growing differences and the timing of the harvests.
Here are the top recommended alternative “trendy” apple brands mentioned:
Cosmic Crisp: Frequently mentioned as a favorite, Cosmic Crisp is praised for its taste and texture, often described as a superior alternative to Honeycrisp.
Pink Lady: Noted for their good flavor, with some commenters preferring them as their go-to variety.
Envy Apples: A top choice for their sweet and crisp qualities, with a few users exclusively preferring them.
Sugar Bee Apples: These are described as sweeter than Honeycrisp and other apples, with a few users specifically seeking them out.
Ambrosia & Jazz: These varieties are grouped together in comments as good alternatives, with each variety having its proponents.
Evercrisp: Some users express a strong preference for Evercrisp apples, highlighting their crisp texture.
Opal Apples: Mentioned for their unique taste, not very exciting to look at but amazing in flavor.
