This is confusing

If I told you I was going to buy some Winter Bananas you'd likely think I was speaking of the long tropical fruit with a yellow skin that you peel before eating.

That would be wrong. It's actually an apple. The Hoosiers christened it thus in Cass County, Indiana in 1876.

I like apples and it's a rare day that I don't eat at least a half of one. But I pass on the ubiquitous Red Delicious as I agree with the opinion that it no longer is.  My wife and I prefer the Gala, Braeburn, Cameo or Pacific Rose varieties. They cost a bit more but there's a world of difference in taste.

Chantix also known as Varenicline Tartrate, is a prescription medicine given to patients seeking to end their smoking addiction. Chantix operates without using any nicotine and helps in getting smoke free but nowadays some negative reviews stating suicide attempts by chantix consumers have raised a question on its efficacy.http://www.chantixmagic.com
