It's Like Apples and Oranges

People say that when they mean there is no way to really compare two things. However, we like comparing things here at Choose and Defend Wednesday. So, what say you?


Or or or oranges?

Now, after you've made your choice and defended it with vigor, I wouldn't hate you if you also mentioned your actual favorite fruit. But only after you play my little game. Choose and Defend! Rah!

"defend it with vigor", you say? well apples.. cause they are sweet and red (or green if you prefer) and love to dip them in peanut butter or cheese whiz.. or cooked over with cinnamon and vanilla ice cream.. or in pie.. or muffins.. or I could go on and on.. lol

This one is is like comparing apples and oranges.

Apples can be baked in a pie, served as a sweet and tasty mush, eaten as is, and used with meats like pork and chicken very nicely.

Oranges do not do as well heated, but do add an interesting zing like their cousins lemon and lime. They are a little more difficult to eat than an apple with the rind and all and can be messier. There are a lot of varieties, however.

I will have to go with the versatile, doctor chasing, all American apple on this one.

I'll choose oranges, because they're chocked full of vitamin C and I love orange juice with the pulp left in. Soooo good. I do like apples when they're covered in caramel, though. Oranges don't work with caramel. Their only flaw.

My favorite fruit is grapes. I love the concord grapes in the fall...the smell, the taste. I'll even tolerate the seeds. But I like other grapes too. They're a great snack.

I guess I'll say oranges. If I have a bad, chalky apple, I can't eat one again for a long, long time

My favorite fruit are berries - especially raspberries. Mmmm.

Mrs: Good defense! I like your spirit here! Apples are very versatile.

Evil-E: You gave both fruits their fair shake...and another one for Team Apple.

Tara: haha! I like that you chose oranges in spite of their lack of caramel appeal :-) Mmmm, grapes!

Churlita: Another for Team Orange. My daughter loves berries too, any kind. She is perfectly willing to make a meal of them.

Everyone: So far we are two and two. I will hold of throwing in my vote to see if we can get anyone else to play along. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Oh apples for sure. You just start eating it. No peeling away.

Apples! I hate getting pith up my nails!
(That sounds quite rude... I surely didn't mean it to! hehe)

MrManuel: A practical man! And another apple guy...

Daffy: A tidy lady! And another apple girl...

Eveyone: Now we're getting somewhere! We have a score of Apples - 4 and Oranges - 2, no make that 3, because I'm going with sweet juicy oranges. So, apples by a stem!
