You’ve heard the expressions, “apple of my eye,” “an apple a day” and “How do you like them apples?”

There’s The Big Apple and “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” but have you heard about the Envy™ apple?

Visit your local Strack & Van Til and fill your shopping basket with the most delicious fruit that’s, well, the envy of all apple lovers. The Envy apple is Strack & Van Til Produce Department’s Apple of the Month for the month of April.

The Envy was developed in New Zealand in the 1980s and introduced in stores in 2008. This perfect piece of produce was born using natural plant-breeding methods and is a cross between the Braeburn and Royal Gala varieties.

Since its introduction, Envy has become a Strack & Van Til customer favorite thanks to its beautifully balanced sweetness, uplifting fresh aroma and delightfully satisfying crunch and texture. Even better — slice it up and be prepared for a treat: Envy apples naturally stay white longer.

What’s the best way to eat Envy apples? Slice it up as a refreshing snack or take a bite out of the whole apple and dig right in. Savor the flavor and enjoy the experience of an apple that’s sure to exceed your expectations. Once you do, you’ll never go back to eating ho-hum apples again.

“Check out the Strack & Van Til Produce Department for Envy apples and enjoy the ultimate apple-eating experience,” says Andy Muller, director of Produce. “Don’t just take our word for it. As it says on the Envy website, ‘Bite and Believe.’ ”
