Yuck,, I bought some apples at my local store on Sunday and they are not Organic Apples, just the regular ones that get sprayed with some kind of waxing crap to make them look shiny. Yesterday I brought one to work and forgot to wash it before I packed it. I started eating it here at work and I noticed a very distinct chemical smell. I was like, what the hell is that smell. It is my apple!!!! So I tossed the apple thinking it was just because I should have washed it and it might have been my imagination. So, today I happily remember to wash the apple at home in hot water before packing it, and here I am sitting at my desk again, and I go to take a bite, and smell the chemical kind of smell again. Shit,, these apples really do have a very prominent chemical smell. They actually smell like some of the stuff I spray onto my car when I wash the car. Like some kind of spray on wax or Tire Wet stuff... This is really disgusting and I try to buy Organic fruit as much as possible, but since Trader Joe's is over a half hour from my house, I get lazy sometimes, and the Health food stores were closed on Sunday. I bought the regular apples from the store. When you think about all the crap they spray on the fruit, like whatever kind of wax they spray on, I wonder what that stuff really is.. Very gross when you start thinking about it. I'm gonna have to google this and try and find out what kind of crap is sprayed on this fruit. And I guess I am just going to have to made a very good effort to keep buying the Organic fruit especially the Apples.
