This is just wrong on SO MANY levels!

Yes, you see that right.... fresh unpeeled apple slices in a bag!

Are we so disassociated from our food that we can no longer eat an apple unless it is prepackaged? What purpose does fruit in a plastic bag serve? Why does the food industry think that a person can't eat an apple (the old fashioned way) and compost the core? Will our children grow up thinking that fruit grows in bags?

What about the waste? All of a sudden there is a huge amount of energy wasted in producing the bag, plus the bag ends up in the landfill.

What is this world coming too????

AND, with all the salmonella, e-coli, etc, striking the food industry lately, who is gonna be dumb enough to eat this without washing it? Which probably negates the whole idea of having it all cut up and ready-to-eat....
