Cotton Candy Grapes Are A Thing Now And It’s Weird
Okay, I'm all for making healthy foods taste better. After all, most vegetable taste better with unhealthy toppings; broccoli tastes awesome smothered in cheese, and celery is great with peanut butter. But this seems a little extreme.
Someone somewhere has invented cotton candy grapes. For real. They look like plain old green grapes, but supposedly taste just like cotton candy. It's a great idea in theory; take something healthy, make it taste like candy and the kids will love it.
The good news is, you can test that theory yourself! These grapes are available at Hy-Vee for $6.99 per pound now! Consumer review: Q92.3 listener Danielle noted on Facebook that she was not a fan.
Personally, I'll be keeping a distance from these. Grapes can be pretty sweet to begin with. Adding cotton candy flavoring would be a bit much for my stomach to handle. Would you try them? Would it get your kids to take fruit in their lunch?
