Who Comes Up with This Stuff? – Day 226



I saw these apples in the store when I was doing my grocery shopping and I was instantly attracted to their vibrant colours and then I noticed their name.

Envy, seriously?  Is this a clever marketing campaign created by some advertising  agency  to increase apple sales.  I guess by making a not so subtle reference to the story of Snow White, we may be brought back to a time in our youth where all we did was play outside and eat apples all day?  (A story hated by many an apple farmer due to the “Poisonous Apple,” part of the plot, I’m sure.)

I guess the marketing worked after all, I did end up buying these new apples and they were the most expensive of all the different varieties.

<Sigh>  At least they are delicious!
