Our Favorite Apples

Episode 224 | Apr 14, 2020

How do you like them apples? But also, why do you like them?

The Big Apple Debate

On this episode of the podcast, we dive into what people think is the best apple and why. We consider all interpretations of the question; therefore, people, places, and things make the list along with apples. This podcast also includes some coverage on the cognitive bias availability heuristic, and a fun round of Super Fight.

The Best Apples Ranked By Our Listeners

The people have spoken, and they did not disappoint. According to our poll, there is the list of the best apples:

  • Honey Crisp
  • Gala
  • Fuji
  • Pink Lady
  • Macbook Pro (the laptop)
  • Cosmic Crisp
  • iPhone (the device)
  • Sweet Tango
  • NYC (the place)
  • Fiona (the singer)

Overall people really valued the crunchy to chewy ratio and the crispiness to juiciness ratios when evaluating apples. Also NYC and Apple devices lack in these areas, they make up for it with bonus points (example includes connecting to the internet, which a normal apple can not do).
