Apples Or Oranges? I Think The Answer Is Apple-solutely Obvious…

Carrie ‘cuts to the core’ of what defines a perfect apple by ranking her top five.

Journalism reports on the important events that happen around the world. That is why I have decided, after long consideration, to rank my top five favourite apples. 

Last year, I went on a little obsession with apples to the point where I would eat one apple a day. So, I consider myself an apple connoisseur and thought I might as well turn my hyperfixation into something productive. Here are my top five apples of all-time:

  1. Gala Apple

When you think of apples, which apple do you picture? I don’t know about you, but I picture a Gala Apple. If there was a poster girl for apples, it would be the Gala. She is the moment. In terms of pure ‘appleness’, this is the basic entry level apple for those seeking to learn more about apples. The Gala is not too hard to bite into and has a crunchy, but soft texture. The taste is sweet and not too tart; as I am a sour girly (I love a good pickle), I like my apples to have a decent level of sourness. The Gala is not too big or small, snack-sized, and easy to carry around. If you are looking into becoming an apple connoisseur, I would start with a Gala. It is, after all, the most produced apple from the last 50 years for a reason.

  1. Jazz Apple

You might be thinking: “What is the difference between this Jazz apple and the Red Gala?” Well, first of all, Jazz, an apple created in New Zealand in 1985, is a descendant of the Royal Gala mixed with the Braeburn apple. Second of all, the Jazz apple is slightly less red than the Gala; I don’t know if colour indicates anything, but I always thought that yellower apples were less sweet. The Jazz apple has a balanced sweet-tart ratio. Jazz apples are also produced in many European countries, including the UK, which means that you are supporting your local farmers while reducing your carbon footprint. Jazz can be grown in both the northern and southern hemispheres, which makes these apples extremely versatile. If you want easy-to-find apples when you travel, I’d suggest go for Jazz – maybe the apple will be so ‘apple-pealing’ that you’ll start to hear the “Sound of Music”!

  1. Braeburn Apple

The first time I had a Braeburn apple, a variety discovered by chance in New Zealand by a farmer in 1952, I was at my aunt’s house last summer. I was just looking for my usual little snack when I noticed the packaging and thought that the name of the apple was funny; I’ve never seen an apple that started with a B. So, I took a bite out of it, and my life changed forever. The Braeburn apple was just the perfect balance of sweet, tart, and crunchy – great for an apple crumble. In fact, I tried a crumble once with Braeburns, and now will never go back – goodbye Granny Smiths! The one complaint I have, however, is that the Braeburn apple is a bit small; I always felt like I had to eat two to compensate for the size.

  1. Fuji Apple

I will always have a personal connection with the Fuji apple. Growing up in Hong Kong, my grandma used to peel Fuji allies with a red serrated knife and portion it to me and my siblings as a snack when we came home from school. Now that I have moved away from home, the Fuji apple always serves as a reminder of home and family, even if I only find this kind of apple once in a blue moon. In all, I have to say that this apple is a high-quality apple. Fuji apples appear bigger than most apples, have an extremely crispy texture, and are sweet with a bit of tartness. They also have a really long shelf life, having the ability to stay fresh for up to a year if stored in the fridge. Although an older apple compared to other varieties, as it was developed in Fujisaki in the 1930s, the Fuji apple continues to be one of the most, if not the most, popular apples in South-East Asia. Who can blame them? Ultimately, the Fuji apple is best treated as a sit-down apple; with a knife in one hand and an apple in the other, you can live out one of my favourite, core memories from childhood and enjoy the Fuji apple.

  1. Pink Lady Apple

I swear Pink Ladies are built differently. These apples were made in Australia in 1973 by crossing the Lady Williams, an Australian apple, with a Golden Delicious – making history. Last year, after someone told me about them, I began eating one of these apples every single day. It got to the point where I could tell you where to find the best Pink Ladies (M&S). I got into the habit of eating a Pink Lady apple everyday for breakfast and, for a while, people wouldn’t be able to see me without one. I have recently toned down the amount I eat these apples, probably best for my bank account; I remember that Pink Lady apples were £3.25 at Tesco earlier this year, and that was on clubcard price. But, the price is honestly worth it considering how crispy and tart the apple is. I think the Pink Lady apple is the apple of all apples.

Now that you have been educated on apple knowledge, you should join me in my extremely random apple obsession – especially if you are trying to get more fibre in your diet. I don’t know what you can do with the information that I have given you, but I hope you consider this article as containing crucial information that you cannot live without. Thank you, and hasta luego.

Stila’s waterproof liquid liner enables you to create a variety of eye-opening effects from ultra-thin, precise lines to thick, dramatic looks. The formula glides on with ease, dries quickly and won’t smudge or run day-into-night. The fine tips offer precise application for everyone from novices to pros and result in beautifully defined eyes that will leave a lasting impression.
    Comparing it to the formula of Soft Glam, I would say that the mattes are pretty close. The mattes from Soft Glam are softer and more pigmented and they blend a touch better, especially the dark shades such as Mulberry and Noir. They’re also less powdery and dusty. The mattes of Velvet Rose blend beautifully though, you just have to have a bit of patience with the dark shades. The shimmers are not as comparable to the Soft Glam palette because the texture is quite different. However, I like both of the palettes in terms of shimmers. None of either formula of shimmers is bad and they both have a great pay-off. Soft Glam has softer shimmers whilst Velvet Rose has a more metallic finish. All in all, the formula of both palettes is great! Order now and get it between next Wednesday January 25th and Friday January 27th in the United States with DHL Express Shipping.
