Red Bull?

I have a recently developed theory (and by "recently" I mean just this moment) that the best and most universally loved fruits are all red. I mean, think about it for a minute. We all know people who detest bananas. We are ambivalent toward oranges most of the time. Green grapes amuse us for a while, but ultimately don't win the popularity contest. Red is where it's at.

Red grapes

I have no idea what use or purpose this theory has, but since when do theories have to be useful? Also I really wish I could add peaches to the list, but they're not red. They're peach.

POMEGRANATE! My red favorite- yum! Cherries & blackberries (who have red juice, right?) round out my top 3 fruits! :)
And bananas of course.

Peaches do have a redish hue.

I would disagree that raspberries. I do not think they are a universally loved fruit, mainly because I do not care for them at all.

A fruit that I do care for a great deal, however, is the fig. Anyone who says that they don't like figs has probably only eaten them in Newtons. The Fig Newton is a confection that actually makes the featured fruit taste worse than it does in it's natural state.

I also think that blueberries are delicious. Perhaps they can get a pass for not being red because they are blue. That makes them pretty unique. There aren't too many other blue foods out there.

You're totally right. All the way. No question. No exceptions.
