Fairgoers fall in love with First Kiss

On the list of must-try State Fair foods, apples don't usually make the cut. But, First Kiss is different.

FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. - On the list of must-try State Fair foods, apples don't usually make the list.

"It's very juicy and good."

But this apple is one of the hottest foods of the year.

"Yesterday was a record day for us. They're flying out of here. Even at three dollars."

Yes, it costs a premium and doesn't even come on a stick, but it does have a catchy name.

The University of Minnesota's newest apple got its name, First Kiss, because it ripens early, marking the first kiss of autumn.

KARE 11's Kent Erdahl got more reaction for fairgoers.
