We all joke about it: when we eat apple pie "it counts as a fruit, right?" Or when you drink a Bloody Mary on Sunday morning, "getting my veggies in!" And, there's been a debate for decades over whether ketchup counts as a vegetable - even in my own home!
It's a very popular fruit. Always has been - always will. Walmart sells more of them than anything else in their entire store, according to BusinessWeek.com. Yes, it's the banana, and you wouldn't believe how good it is for you.
Although I am fast becoming an "older American", I try as hard as I can to keep up on latest trends, fads, gadgets and the like. Most times I take to them readily. This is not one of them. I find it totally annoying, which I guess is the whole point!
