The World in Apple Dishes

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, said someone once.

Since there are only so many fresh apples you can eat throughout a lifetime, people around the world started looking for options – alternatives, if you’d prefer. Theoretically speaking, it’s still an apple even if fully drenched in sugar, right?

If you’re curious to see how people like their apples – mostly drenched in sugar – hop on the magic carpet for a ride – no talking tigers, though – and let’s explore the world through apples.

Apple Pie – United States

All great adventures begin at home. When you think of home, you probably think of your mom’s apple pie – a simple, yet crazily delicious crust filled with apples.

Being the nationwide favorite, the American apple pie is the answer to all your woes – just top it off with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for the ultimate foodgasm.

Since McDonald’s is “as American as the apple pie,” head over there and get the genius Apple Pie McFlurry whenever homesickness kicks you in the gut. Not quite like your mom makes, but close enough. Besides, you’ll instantly feel better for being smart enough to know an item off the secret menu.
