I love HoneyCrisp when in season and lately they are available at bargain pricing. Locally i can get either Michigan or Washington state HoneyCrisp for as low as $1.29/b. Its really hard to beat them for the perfect combination of sweet and tart. Plus the texture is perfect.
Ive only found RubyFrost once at Costco. REALLY close to as good as a Michigan HoneyCrisp. Its a variety more commonly grown in NY state. In season these rival a HoneyCrisp.
I tried a Koru apple for the first time the other day. WOW. Super good apple and after some research i found out why. Its a cross between the other 2 apples i really like, Braeburn and Fuji. Both are excellent in season but leave a lot to be desired when not. The Kuro is large like a Red Delicious but way more crunchy, way more tart and more sweet. Personally i cant stand a Red Delicious for anything but apple sauce. The texture simply sucks.
Ive tried a couple others that can be good such as Pink Lady and Pinata. Gala are ok when at their peak but otherwise they dont do it for me. In season i can get a Kuro for the same price and it blows them away.
