Arnold’s Apples

We did a double take when we saw these in the supermarket the other day:

Apparently, someone has decided to use Arnold Schwarzeneggers’s image to sell Austrian apples for a Euro a piece. On the side, they write:

Healthy and Strong

“Arnold” the Incomparable

This apple grows and ripens at the foot of the Austrian Alps in Styria with the fertile soil and unique microclimate of warm days and cool nights. Lovingly tended by skilled and dedicated fruit growers in their small and medium sized orchards it is a rich natural source of health, strength and flavor.

It was too funny to pass up.

How did it taste?  Ok, but not much different than all the other Apples that come from Styria, and sell for a lot cheaper.
