Apple dominates Pumpkin

Fall time is finally here, the leaves are changing, the air is colder, and you can’t wait to cuddle up with a warm drink and light a fall scented candle. The question is are you going to be enjoying the apple scent or the pumpkin feel?
Obviously there is a correct answer, one of these options is a refreshing, crisp, delightful staple of fall, it’s indubitably apple!
Of course people will try to argue that pumpkin is the most well known; every time someone mentions fall, pumpkins are associated. Well they may be the face of the season, if we’re being real, apples are the backbone.
The majority of students agree, when surveyed, 64 percent of students said that they preferred the delightful taste of apple.
Apple pies dominate the dessert table, families go apple picking in apple orchards where thousands of apples are grown each year, and almost every house in America has a warm honey crisp scented candle lit. Out with pumpkin spice lattes and in with Apple Macchiatos; the competition doesn’t even compare.
In addition to the delicious pies and drinks, there is one appley treat that doesn’t have a pumpkin counterpart. Carmel apples are a unique delicacy that cannot be compared to anything in this world.
If grandma’s dentures can’t handle biting into an apple it’s okay, cut it up and the taste won’t change at all. If a baby sibling wants to add oreos and m&ms, the apple can comply. It’s a delicious treat for the whole family and arguably the most defining dessert of fall.
Overall, this season is a great time of year, and whether one enjoys apples or pumpkins, let’s just be grateful that we get to experience another autumn. However, apple enjoyers will have a significantly greater experience enjoying a yummy fruit rather than carrying around a big orange rock.
