Your prayers have been answered—Cotton Candy grapes are here! It may sound like something that’s straight from Willy Wonka’s mind, but there’s nothing at all fictional about these fruits. They’re as real as apples or bananas! (You know, Cotton Candy grapes aren’t even the weirdest fruit at the supermarket…) Here’s a bunch of details:
The Grapes of the Future
These days, through the miracle of science, food producers can make almost anything happen. That’s why the California company Grapery is able to make our grape dreams come true.
By cross-breeding many different standard grapes, the company has managed to create all sorts of new grapes. Ranging in styles and flavors, these new fruits are as tasty as they are original. Moon Drops are grapes shaped like tiny eggplants, gum drops have a “gummylicious flavor” and Cotton Candy grapes taste exactly like cotton candy. Intrigued? We certainly are!
Are They Safe to Eat?
Grapery has launched so many exciting-sounding grapes that we had to update our grape guide. But before you start to worry, know that they’re packed with the same vitamins that you get in regular green and red grapes. You don’t have to feel guilty about eating them at all. It’s also not the first unusual “designer fruit” in your produce department—especially if you shop at Walmart.
Say Hello to Cotton Candy
The most exciting new type of grape (according to us, at least) is aptly named Cotton Candy. The circus treat-inspired fruit is everything we wanted (but didn’t know we needed). According to the geniuses behind Cotton Candy grapes, these fruits taste “exactly like the pink spun-sugar treat you loved as a kid.” The green grapes are supposed to be plump, juicy and oh-so-sweet. What more could you possibly want from a healthy snack?
Where to Find Them
Cotton Candy grapes are available at most major grocery stores, including Sam’s Club, Whole Foods, Publix and Wegman’s. What are you waiting for? It’s a grape time to go shopping!
