I felt right at home when I arrived in New York City, what a c'est magnifique metropolis. The bustling streets, the iconic skyline ... the food! I made it my job to taste test every delicious, chocolatey American brownie I could find.
But where was the enormous fruit people talked about? Turns out, NYC got its infamous nickname in the 1920s for the prizes (or "big apples") rewarded at the racetracks. Brownie points if you knew that little morsel of trivia already, mon ami!
