shanrick: The cost savings "can be huge," he says. "Right now, to make fresh-cut apple slices and put them in the bag, 35 or 40 percent of the cost is the antioxident treatment. So you could make a fresh-cut apple slice 30 percent cheaper."So why will they cost four times as much?
cameroncrazy1984: DAMN YOU MONSANT...oh.
maddermaxx: Never brown subby? Not even when you eat them? That could make for some weird looking poop.
AcneVulgaris: You know what? Just buy a farking apple for farksakes, and bite chunks off with your farking teeth.I have seen the future, and it is pussified.
Mister Peejay: Smeggy Smurf:clearly you've never pooped neon green/too much pistachio ice cream at once make it day-gloNow there's an awesome science experiment for some kid's project.How much are we talking? Half gallon? Full gallon? I have put away a gallon and a half in one sitting but that was when I was a teen and I can't eat nearly that much before getting sick nowadays./chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, why must you be so delicious and awesomely textured?
The Southern Dandy: Won't go brown, but will still rot. I'd rather have an apple that browned so I could know it was rotten.
GoldSpider: Genetic engineering is scary because I don't understand it. Therefore these apples should be banned.
gadian: But does it still taste like an apple? A real apple?
TyrantII: ...And they'll taste like shiat, like those Honeycrisp and other assorted brand that taste more like plastic than an apple.

So you could make a fresh-cut apple slice 30 percent cheaper."That doesn't sound right. I dehydrate apples, and it takes just a few cents worth of lemon/lime juice in water to do that with $10-$20 worth of apples.
fusillade762: How hard is it to buy a whole apple and cut it yourself? Damn, people are lazy.
