Staci Sweet: Richland Gourmet Apples Contributor/Blogger
According to wikianswers.com, the average apple weighs about 1/3 to half of a pound which is about 227 grams. Our jumbo sized gourmet granny smith apples are well above the average weight! No sir; our apples aren’t on any diets! We encourage our apples to maintain their plump exteriors and we do our very best to choose only those worthy to be called a plus sized Richland apple.
But how does this affect your weight? Well because our gourmet apples are just that – apples; you’re eating within the guidelines of the food pyramid. A healthy diet calls for one that is rich with fruits and nuts. So why not eat a fruit that according to a 2004 report1, is ranked 13th in the world as far as health benefits go.
Eating any of our 13th ranked healthy granny smith apples keeps you well within a healthy diet; with the exception of our caramel and chocolates. However, some nutritionists cite that white chocolate actually does have some healthy benefits; but we recommend that you indulge in our gourmet caramel apples in moderation and but please consult your physician.
