Guest rant: Crazy apples? That’s crazy!

I'm an equal opportunity blogger soI let others rant and rave on this blog, too!

Last week when I posted about 9 foods to avoid, my brilliant, beautiful, svelte, clever, and creative friend and student Diana Scimone (who also helps me edit this blog, so if there's more than one glowing adjective in this sentence, you know who's responsible), saw this basket of alleged fruit in the grocery store:

Apples 2
Diana snapped the photo of these Crazy Apples (yes, that's what they're called) and texted it to me with this rant:

"Bubble-gum flavored apples? Are you kidding me? And we wonder why kids won't eat normal fruit anymore. I think the word 'crazy' on the label refers to anyone who would serve these to their kids. They're not cheap, either–$1.25 each. The label says '100% natural; no added sugar'–but where does that bubblegum flavor come from?"

So now apples by themselves the way G-d created them are not good enough?  (And apples have been around a lot longer than us!) Why do we have to spice them up with candy flavorings so that kids will eat them?

The company claims they don't inject them with anything–but why do we have to change the flavor of an apple? (How do we know that "one crazy apple a day, will keep the doctor away?)

DUH! If most of your daily consumption is from these foods and you Move Your Assets more, you won't have to worry about getting Type 2 Diabetes!
