The 10 Most Famous Apples and Minis in History

To celebrate two of our most favorite products — our Happy Apple infused cider and the Pearl2O MINI — we thought we would come up with the greatest list in the history of the Internet. That’s right! Below are our favorite apples and minis (or Minnie’s) throughout history. Some you may know, some may be nearly forgotten in the hallways of your memory banks, but no matter what their position in your psyche, we’re sure you can jibe with this: the Internet’s greatest list ever made, ever!

Apple Computers: Ever heard of ‘em? You’re probably using one right now, chuckling as your scroll through this amazing, never-before-seen list. If you live in Seattle, you may have even purchased stock in Apple and sold it to get that nice used car. Let’s not talk about it anymore, actually. Either way, thanks to Apple Computers, your ear buds are $30 but they look so sleek. Score


Mini-Me: Lest we not forget maybe the most important character in the Austin Powers franchise not named Austin Powers. Mini-Me (real name: Vern Troyer) stole every scene in which he was cast. He was funny, fresh and even foul at the appropriate times. *Raises pinky to lips* “I will call him: Mini-Me.”


Christina Applegate: Whether you’re a child of the ‘90s and you know her from Married With Children or you’re a child of the 2000s and you know her from Anchor Man, Christina Applegate has shone on screens for nearly all of her adult life. Her gold hair and carefree demeanor has made her millions (we can only assume) and, as a result, she’ll be in our common consciousness for eternity, or thereabouts.


Minnie Mouse: The Ms. Pac-Man to Mickey Mouse’s Pac-Man. Or, you get the analogy. Either way Minnie Mouse is a ride-or-die. She’s been there since the beginning (To be exact: 1928) and while her first name is Minerva, she’s Minnie to all of us, red polka-dot bow and all.


Adam’s Apple: Who knows why this part of the neck is named after human’s first dude. But make sure not to touch it — it just feels weird if you do (Ack!). But no matter! This protective part of the body that guards the vocal cords is necessary and kind of funny looking when it bobs up and down. Let’s move on, shall we?


Minnie Driver: One of the stars of the ‘90s movie gem, Good Will Hunting, Driver never really took off like the shooting star many of us thought she might. Regardless, that big grin and British laugh has stuck around in popular culture. Perhaps for no other reason than this charming scene!


The Big Apple: New York! New York! Home of the Yankees, the Statue of Liberty and some of the best hole-in-the-wall restaurants on the planet — go ahead, try to go to Manhattan and not eat yourself silly. It’s the perfect place to land after leaving the Emerald City popping a few Pearl Minis along the flight. Touch down and sample everything!


Mini Cooper: Having fun so far? Best list ever so far? Why, thank you! Let’s keep it rolling, so to speak, with one of the zippiest cars on the highway: the Mini Cooper. What was once thought to be a small, stupid idea for an automobile has grown in popularity with diminishing parking spaces and packed thoroughfares. It pays to be small these days. And this little racer knows it.


Apple Records: You may remember flipping over one of your Beatles records for views of that enticing green apple logo. Now the Lennon, McCartney and Co. aren’t owned by Steve Jobs. It’s ANOTHER apple business, this one founded by the British Mop Tops and utilized as a creative outlet for their many brilliant songs. Not much popped for the company, but who needs a steady income when you’ve already won the lottery?


Apple Martin-Paltrow: Here’s one we love to hate on. The young child of former golden couple Chris Martin (of Coldplay) and Gwyneth Paltrow (of movies, cookbooks, and lifestyle brand, Goop). This unfortunate child is named after an apple, an only slightly less curious name than “Goop.” While we love our Happy Apple, we don’t want to named our children after it. Could be worse, the kid could be named Blanket or Bart Simpson. But, either way, we’re done with the best list ever made ever on the Internet. Thank you! Hold your applause for…RIGHT NOW!
