What is the difference when you use "a lot", "lots" and "lots of"

a lot of apples a lot of rice lots of apples lots of rice.

All these phrases sound okay to you ???

I eat a lot of apples every day. I eat lots of apples every day. There's a lot of rice in the bowl, there's lots of rice in the bowl. Meh, no difference in meaning. A lot of feels like it's in a slightly more formal register, and would be seen more often in writing than lots of, but both are correct, in spoken English. If you are not a native speaker, it's probably best to start with a lot of as the form you normally use, since it's a bit more formal, and would be accepted anywhere, and make a habit of using only that form when writing. Otherwise, most of us bounce back and forth between the two.
