Sliced bread: meet sliced apples

The best thingsm_scotianapples.jpg
since sliced bread? Why, sliced apples of course.

Scotian Gold, a co-op owned by Valley apple farmers (website), supplies fresh-sliced apples in a snack-size bag. The co-op has been thinking about the idea for some time, but apparently saw a hole in the market when humanity (make that the northern hemisphere) launched their War on the Bulge. The company is already supplying schools with 60-100 gram bags for about the same price as a bag of potato chips (that’s 69 – 99 cents, Canadian).

Which leaves the question: why don’t the apples brown? Oh. I see.
