Any reputable grocery store around here wouldn't think twice about taking them back. There is a big war going on between all the stores over who has the best produce.

Yes, I did know the price and I had my opportunity to return them if price was my only concern. But I *love* Honeycrisp Apples and I have actually never had an apple be really bad even in the winter time. I think they do quite well. I am one of those people who, for the most part, does not eat out-of-season produce. In the winter I do not eat: asparagus, strawberries, blueberries, mangos. I mainly stick with citrus and, yes, apples. I had some fujis last week that were great.

I absolutely know that this store would take them back (Wegman's). But I generally don't return food. I have seen folks do it at Wegmans though and I was just wondering how many people would return an expensive apple that had no flavor. Looks like most would not.

I bought honeycrisp apples at Target a couple of weeks ago. Can't remember the size bag, but it was $5.99 (so maybe 3 lbs)? They were very bland. But I'm 25 mins from Target; not worth going back. We ate them anyway; they just didn't have much flavor. I wouldn't waste them.

Now, my local grocery store (local boutique-y small chain) has honeycrisps for $3.99/lb. I bought 3 on Thursday and they came to $6.54. And they were perfect! Exactly what a honeycrisp apple should be. Really the platonic ideal of an apple.

My takeaway: don't buy produce at Target.

I might return them, I might not.

I certainly wouldn't consider it tacky.

I probably spend thousands of dollars every year at my friendly neighborhood grocery store. I bet they'd be more than happy to take a return from me for whatever the reason if I'm not happy with my purchase.

No, I wouldn't take them back over personal opinion.

I would bake something with them. If I wasn't a baker, I'd throw them into my woods and let the squirrels have an expensive treat.

Yup - I would be returning them. But, then I'm spoiled, we get really good apples year 'round here. I've returned cantaloupe to Costco. You buy them there in a 3 pack and these tasted like squash. I wouldn't return fruit or veggies after a day or so, since it can spoil rather quickly. But yeah, if I had the receipt and it wasn't a long drive, I'd return it.

I take it you aren't from here in the south, and had the joy of shopping at Publix. They will and do take food back if you aren't satisfied. I wouldn't shop anywhere that didn't.

No, I wouldn't take them back, but I'm not one to return much. Plus, I absolutely hate going to the grocery store, so it definitely wouldn't be worth it to me to have to make another trip to return them.

Like you, I'd just throw them out.
