Enchanted Golden Apples have been in Minecraft since its version 1.3 and it has since then been one of the most overpowered items in the game. There is good reason behind this, as it provides an astounding number of beneficial effects for your character. The only problem is the cost of obtaining one.
Enchanted Golden Apples, unfortunately, are not craftable. The only way to get them is by finding them in a world-generated chest, console commands, or through your creative inventory. Many players are surprised to find out this information for one of two reasons. Either they are veteran players who played Minecraft before version 1.9 when Enchanted Golden Apples were craftable, or they were unaware that these apples differ from the weaker, craftable Golden Apples.
