One of the American Classics - Apple Pie...or anything with apples for that matter!! The apple is good any day any time. Bobbing apples at Halloween. Candied apples at the carnival. Apple pancakes or apple dumplings for breakfast. Slices of apple with cheddar cheese at snack time. Apple cobbler for dessert after dinner on a fall evening. Oh, my! The list could go on and on and on. Ready for an apple or apple something?

You know the saying, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away?" Well, it's true. Apples have high nutritional value and are an extremely healthy snack. The peel alone contains antioxidants that help reduce damaged cells and fight diseases. Apples are also fat, sodium, and cholesterol free. That’s almost reason enough to love apples!
There are 7,500 varieties of apples grown throughout the world. They can come in a variety of shapes, flavors, and colors including all shades of red, green, and yellow.
Celebrate Eat a Apple Day! The apple can be eaten raw, cooked, baked, or juiced. Snack on your favorite variety (Red Delicious, Gala or Macintosh). Perhaps expand your palette and enjoy something slightly different from the many varieties and types of apples available from around the world. Not into just eating a raw apple? Then, eat an apple baked in a pie, folded into a turnover, tucked into a tart, just to name a few. Why not take enough apples with you to share at work, at school or with friends?
