This or That: Apples or Oranges?

Simple one this week. You must pick one, and you must explain why.

I’ve always preferred apples, because I don’t like the pith on oranges. (I also hate pulp in my orange juice. But give me Simply Orange Pulp Free, and I’m a happy girl!)  I remember one time, I was in my 20s, and my grandmother asked if I wanted an orange. I told her no, that I didn’t like the white stuff around the orange.  About 5 minutes later she plunked a bowl of oranges in front of me, no white pith to be found.  She had cut it all off, just for me.  Now that’s love.

So, readers, which do you prefer? Let me know in the comments below, and you’ll be entered to win a print of this photo:

And, although Paris got more votes than London last week, it looks like we’ll be going to London sometime this year!  We decided to meet family wherever they wanted to go (thus giving us built-in babysitters when needed, and help the rest of the time!), and London was the pick.  But I’m sure we’ll make it to Paris one day…although maybe not with a baby in tow.  🙂

  1. Huh. I always liked both, though as a kid I tended to prefer orange juice over apple juice. But I don’t think it was based on any quality of the juice itself — my brothers liked apple juice more so I just had to be contrary 🙂

      Oh and I too prefer Apples for the same reasons, I don’t like all the white stuff on oranges and all the work to get to the good stuff 🙂

  3. To eat: apples
    To drink: oranges (the more pulp, the better) / though I suppose hard apple cider is pretty damn good…

    okay: apples! 🙂

    Tough call but I’d have to say apples simply because there’s a wider variety and I’m a sucker for variety. Oranges have a handful of cultivars, like navel, valencia, blood, etc. but they taste similar enough to each other that it doesn’t feel like a big change, whereas with apples the flavor distinctness between cultivars is significant and there’s more overall (over 7,500 according to wiki!)
