What is on the horizon?
Other new developments include the arrival of two new kids on the block! Meet the Arctic Apple and the Cosmic Crisp™ .
Love apples but don't love the browning after slicing? Then the arctic apple, brainchild of the Okanagan Specialty Fruits company, is for you! Because these apples stay beautifully fresh-looking long after you slice them or bite into them, more apples will be eaten and fewer will be wasted. The Golden Delicious apple is being rolled out in November 2017 to about 400 stores in the Midwest. Arctic Granny Smiths and Fujis will follow. Find more information on the Arctic Apple website and click below to see a time-lapse video of a regular Golden Delicious and its Arctic counterpart.
What better way to enjoy these apples than in a fun snack that will have kids begging for more? Make these crazy monster apple slices with peanut butter, strawberries, sunflower seeds and edible googly eyes.
We can't wait to try this Cosmic Crisp™ Upside Down Cake! Find this recipe and others as well as more information about this delicious new apple variety on the Cosmic Crisp™ website.
