And my local Trader Joe's carries at least 5-6 varieties of apple, often more. (And there is still regional diversity by the way--you can't find Macintosh or Empire apples in CA. Maybe at a Whole Paycheck.)
Yet most people are going to get a Delicious...
Also, I don't think that eating songbirds is an indication of how great the choices were.
I didn't say they were great choices. Just that they had them.
