Knowing Americans and the amount of food they consume I'm going for the biggest number. Then again as its all junk food maybe I should tick the lowest. No, I'm sure they love canned sugared apple in their McDonalds pies.

Sixteen pounds?

I picked 18. I would have guessed more. 18 lbs. a year doesn't sound like that much.

18. It doesn't take too many apples to make 18 lbs and there are alot of people who have at least one per day, not to mention pies, applesauce, apple desserts etc.

For me it would be maybe a half pound at one or two apples a year.

That's pretty crappy of you to say that, you being so concerned with political correctness and not offending people by denouncing them as a group and all.

If you want to call *me* a pig, I invite you to do so, but please don't be guilty of that which you yourself so object to in others.

You're quite right about Americans as a group being pretty darned unhealthy, and I also think that as a nation we are perhaps the most socially irresponsible and self-infatuated. I'm proud of certain ideals that were part of our heritage, but I am not proud of the way we as a group live, and I dread to think of where we as a people are headed, because I see it on the streets and in the classrooms.

But I am so grateful that you didn't call nasty names.

Oooh, those Americans are such dunderheads! wink

Joking! I can't even remember what dunderhead

It's pretty crappy of you to say It's crappy of me to say that.

Please lighten up...It was tongue in cheek.
Jeez, We really need an emoticon for that.

Anyway, that would include me as well. I live in the USA and apart from the fact that I am not legally a US citizen, I still consider myself American....and I consume apples.

How about "zero"? I rarely if ever eat apples.
posted 5-May-2014 5:23am  
18 is the top number? I eat that amount in 2-3 months.
But only fresh apples not processed in some filthy factory where the workers are spitting in the food, bleah.
If I want applesauce I make it myself. That way I know there is no sugar or chemical preservatives added.

Well I would have to mostly agree with you.
Most Americans are dunderheads.
Throw a stone over here and I am sure you will hit one.
