The Fastest, Healthiest Snack in the West
January 11, 2010 17 Comments
Are you bored with the same old dull snacks? Do you need a way to "dress-up" your healthy snack?
Enter the apple slicer. For a mere $4 at Target ($10 if you want a super nice one), you can purchase this handy tool for transforming dull Apples into something fancy.
Add peanut butter, almond butter, or a handful of grapes and you have an instant and fabulous snack. It takes about 2 seconds to slice an apple with one of these things and it changes your whole apple eating experience.
I was introduced to the apple slicer at a chain restaurant. Instead of French Fries, the offered me an apple or side salad. But, they couldn't just put an apple on the plate, so they used the apple slicer. I had my tuna fish sandwich and my apple. Honestly, I didn't miss the fries.
Apple fries are at Burger King and pre-sliced apples can be found in supermarkets. But, I don't understand why you would buy them when it takes so little time to slice an apple. And all that packaging!!
If you pre-slice an apple, it will turn brown unless you squirt some lemon juice on it. So, why not just carry an apple slicer in your purse or backpack? Buy many and give them to your friends!
Here is one from Oxo that is sold at Amazon and Target. They usually turn out pretty great cooking tools.
