I have never even heard of them before so I will look for them the next time I go to the store and give them a try.

Agreed! Someone at work introduced me to them a couple of years ago. They are the best!

You might find them under then name Cripps Pink too. I was told in one store they no longer receive them as "Pink Lady" but Cripps Pink

Our local Target says they'll be available in a week or two. A friend on the Weight Watchers message boards turned me on to them, and they're the only apple I'll eat any more. (I may try the Pink Lady after reading these posts.)

They're sweet, crisp and so juicy I stand over the sink or have a napkin handy under my chin to eat them!

Ha, I have not seen that one here ever. Thanks for mentioning, because you never know.

We have been eating Honeycrisp for a few yrs here. We go to Eckerts sometimes and pick them off the tree.

Pink Lady is around here as well.

I like both the Honey Crisp and the Pink Ladies (still called that here in the Northwest) but my favorite will always be Granny Smith. Crisp and tart!

Honeycrisp is my favorite.
Gala next.

I've never had pink lady, I will have to try it. And the fuji.

I bought jazz once because they only had jazz or red delicious (ew). They were good. I don't like dry or mushy apples.

I'm picky about my apples too. They must be crisp and have a good "snap" when I bite into them. Honeycrisp are firm, crisp, and sweet/tart. They are very juicy. I love them. I bought some Gala apples, and they aren't crisp enough for me.

Kroger's had Honeycrisps today but they were huge!!! I got another favorite--Jazz instead. I love to core and slice an apple and spread it with the lowfat Laughing Cow soft cheese wedges. 1 apple and 1 wedge is only 1 point for the weight watchers out there.
