I too eat an apple a day. My favorite is Golden Delicious. But I have not been able to find them for several weeks now, so tried the Opal and found it to be very good.

I remembered the other apple that I love it is called "sweetango". It is wonderful but not on the market for very long.

Macintosh is my very favorite but often can't find in TN. So then my go to apple is Red Delicious and Honey Crisp....sometimes just whatever is on sale.

My favorite is the Pink Lady - I also like the green apples they use in Caramel apples, usually they are Granny Smith apples but some are Pippins - both are good.

I love, Love,Jonathan apples and JonaGolds, but they have a really short season.
Also like Granny Smith and Honey Crisp both for eating and for pies.
I'm looking forward to trying the new Cosmic Crisp.

My very favorite apple is Wolf River. They are a winter apple, get really huge, keep for a really long time and can be used for anything after they have been on the tree long enough to go through a hard frost. The frost turns them sweet. They can be used for baking before that. The trees bear heavily only every other year. Most people don't know what to do with such a huge apple. Two will make a good sized pie.
After that, golden delicious is the most flavorful, sweet and juicy. They can be used for baking, too.

I like Honey Crisp and have tried the Cosmic Crisp which was good but expensive. There is another new apple on the market called Envy that I found while looking for Cosmic Crisp that I like, has a sweeter taste not tart.

Perhaps whatever you are most partial to is what you may have been introduced to as a child? Living in the northeast, MacIntosh is my absolute favorite. Also like Cortland, Northern Spy (for cooking and baking), Empire and the Paula and Jona Reds.

I enjoy an apple in the evening to curb my sweet-tooth. Honey crisps are so enormous that I only eat half. The other half doesn't turn brown the next day. Down here in south Texas, I paid $2.50 for one apple yesterday!! ouch
