Sorry I didn't respond. I was banned for a week.

My opponent has shown that there are many apple desserts. However this does not prove that apples are better. Both apples and oranges are fruits.[2]

My opponent has argued that since apples have been used in many desserts they are better. I argued that the individual fruit, the orange, was better because it was juicier and sweeter. So far my opponent has shown how apple pies, apple sauce, apple cider, and so on, are better than oranges. He has not shown how the individual apples are better.

"Apple pie is America's most popular flavor."

The average American doesn't eats more pizza than fruits. The average American probably eats more apple pies than apples. This isn't an argument. Pro is simply stating what others think of apples.

Conclusion:

My opponent has still not presented any arguments that show how apples are better. I have shown that both apples and oranges are fruits and therefore, neither is better. Its as if we were arguing which is better, peanuts or almonds. In the end they are both just nuts. My opponent has shown how apple pie and apple source are better than oranges. However he failed to prove that the individual apple is better than the individual orange.

This debate is about which are better apples or oranges. That includes how other people think of or use the fruit.
By the way, I'm a "she"...

Con

Since my opponent has not presented any new arguments, I will simply restate my position.

-Apples are no better than Oranges since they are both fruits.

-Oranges taste better than apples because they are juicier.

-Oranges have more Vitamin C than apples making them healthier.

-Apples get stuck between your teeth.
