APRICOTS ARE GROSS - except for these

I love fruit, but one thing I can not choke down is an apricot. Between the mushy chewy texture and the weird skin, it is a instant GAG MAKER.

During my recent trip with FIFI to a random town (thanks to me getting on the wrong train....) there was a small farmers market. When the stand owner saw me walking towards him he PEELED open a mini fruit and gave it to me to try. I had no idea it was an apricot, so I gave it a try.


Small and compact

One bite and I was in fruit HEAVEN. It was gently sweet with a firm texture and a smooth surface.  I bought a large bag and they were gone within a day. Now I can't find them ANYWHERE (insert pouting here).

Put your thumbs in the center and peel open

It's like high fiber candy in its own fun packaging.

HAVE YOU TRIED THESE?
There are also mini golden plums, and those are delicious too! I've been eating so much fruit lately it has become my main staple. What is your favorite fruit?

I have not tried these, but I totally need to take a cue from you and eat more fruit. I love fruit, I'm just too lazy to wash and dry it. LAME! But I'm so getting some today when I go to the grocery store. Best snack and breakfast food for on-the-go!

Will have to wait 4 months >.<

Yum! I love a good apricot, although I think mango and strawberries have to be my favorite fruits...
