I feel like you don't see Golden Delicious apples anymore

When I was a kid these were the options imo:

  • Granny Smith
  • Golden Delicious
  • Red

Now you’ve got your Galas, your fuckin’ Pink Ladies.

Golden Delicious were fine ‘n’ all, I toook some much umbrage with Red Delicious, you wouldn’t know. I swear, water tastes more interesting than they did. And you can fookin’ well order me a punnet of Russets while you’re at it.

RIP Golden Delicious. No flowers.

Worst of the apples. Granny Smith was the GBOL for whacking in a cheddar and apple sandwich.

I didn’t realise they were called Red Delicious. Shit texture, too shiny, no taste, bruised all the time. Fuck off.

Don’t think I’ve ever had one because they’re expensive. The colour is beautiful. Might go to Asda now and get some. If there is any.

Also shout out to Discovery and if they ever manage to get enough trees, the Raspberry Ripple.

Used to be Granny Smith’s (YES), GDs (meh) and Cox’s (ugh)

I vaguely recall Golden Delicious being boycotted in the 80s because a lot of them came from South Africa. Could be wrong through.

What’re those red shiny ones that have the taste & texture of mould even when they’re fresh, plus that awful curly waxpaper skin - Braeburns, mibbe? God, I hated those as a kid…

Edit: googled Braeburns and they’re not the guilty party, so i googled ‘red uk apple’ and got nowt but adverts for Bono-branded consumer electronics. FFS, world

Red Delicious look like the culprit, but I’m sure they weren’t called that when I were a lad
