Sweet Orin Apple Review

"The Imposter Apple"

33
Horse Food

Slap a hefty, yellow-green leather jacket on a rotting, juiceless pear and you will have an indistinguishable facsimile of the Sweet Orin Apple. The third most popular apple in Japan, the Orin, pronounced “oh-rin” means “King of Apples” which, I assume is meant as a cheeky insult, since it is not even the king of apples in its own country. And rightfully so, since each bite of this squelchy imposter reveals a flesh-clump of Bartlett-esque tropical flavored baby wipes metastasizing under a weather-beaten tarp it brazenly calls skin. Do not be fooled by the name – the Sweet Orin Apple is nothing more than a savorless shit-pear doing a mirthless impression of an apple, and failing.
