Can fruit make you fat? What about dried fruit? Specifically apples? Dried apple rings?

Here's what's happening: We moved into a new office building, which is stellar, and includes a rack of containers that feature such as granola and peanut M&Ms and an assortment of dried fruits. The dried-fruit container in particular is right next to the stairway I use all the time to go down to the kitchen for more water, or to use the first-floor bathroom (which I like better). I can't seem to stop myself from reaching in there with the tongs and getting myself another apple ring, though, which led me to the question above. I don't know how much apple rings you need to eat before you join the Pudge Club, but I hope I don't find out.
