Worst. Braeburn. Ever.
I do and it breaks me heart, and others too.
instead of crunch?
merely because it contains criticism, and now we can all be elitist about apple types and stuff.
its I've Just Had a Yoghurt. - God that's like getting an important album title wrong on a crucial first date - what a mid morning snack faux pas that was!
is worse than no referencing at all, in some circles. that's what irvine welsh says.
too much so for my taste. according to my mum, they ruined my sister's teeth.
They rarely disappoint.
I like the way braeburns tend to be quite crunchy, but also sweet. where as royal gala is a bit sickly and soft.
it's obvs golden delicious.
is the chav of the apple world.
actually they're both wrong.
Golden Delicious is a kid's apple.
isnt that a KIDS apple?
Kids' apples are: Golden Delicious and Granny Smith.
i get this ^^
i am so great
The Braeburns that my local sainsbury's sell come from New Zealand!
We* grow them in Kent!!!
*When I say we, I mean some farmers, probably.
however, Sainsbury's only ever put them in packs of four and try and charge me Â£2.79 for the privilege.
Utter, utter cunts.
grr it's really wasteful as well. supermarkets should be more responsible about packaging.
It is a load of arse! It was 1.99 last week.
what was it in particular that left you feeling disappointed? was it all mushy and dry? those are the ones I hate.
also it should be cold, maybe not quite fridge cold, but certainly not warm.
they even feature in Billy Liar. But do apples? Do they buggery.
you and your bleeding oranges.
let's quote that film all day!
i would like to.
When they've been freeze-dried in transfer, and the little segments inside the segments (technical term) go all hard and dry. Mmmmm, disgustolicious.
warm bananas, though, that's a completely different story, bleeuurgh!
Apples should be firm, crunchy and ever so juicy
and I don't mean that in a rude way - they make ace desserts
it didn't quite work
yes sorry about your behalf there -I 'heart' porridge and bananas but mixing them together is asking for trouble with irreversable consqeuences.
are bad !
you werent even around at the time, you're not allowed to bump this!
when Prole made sense though.
I just had the best apple ever. Sweet, juicy and an overtone of, would you believe, aniseed. God bless Waitrose speciality apples.
when you get an apple that feels like it's going to be really crunchy and satisfying, but then you bite into it and it's crumbly and soggy like what I would imagine rotting flesh to be like - (but less meaty).
Every time that happens, a part of me dies inside. It almost makes me feel as bad as when you go to use your stapler, and it's RUN OUT OF STAPLES.
It's hard to imagine a time when this wasn't the default response.
