Foodie Files: I Came, I Saw, I Ate........

This summer you may have heard people raving about Cotton Candy grapes. The picture above captures the moment when I found a boat load of these non gmo grapes at Whole Foods. Although they look like ordinary green grapes, these California based  grapes are hailed for their cotton candy taste.  Yes, you read that correctly. These grapes are touted as a natural means of downing what may be your favorite fluffy carnival confection. I'm no cotton candy expert but I have had a cone or two in my childhood and the taste is unmistakable.  After taking my first bite I definitely picked up the essence of cotton candy. Of course the texture is like that of a regular grape, no sugary grains or sticky residue, just regular grapes.  After the first or second bite the cotton candy taste dissipates and a semi sweet taste emerges.
The next day I carried a sizable portion of these grapes to consume as a part of my breakfast. After about grape number 10, I was done and knew that if I  never saw another cotton candy grape it would be too soon. I understand the novelty of these grapes,  and now I can say been there, done that, but for $3.99 per pound coupled with the odd taste that lingers in my mouth I will pass.
Have you tried these grapes? If so, what say you?

Hey PJD, I've always wanted to try out these Cotton Candy grapes after seeing them in It'sJudy'sLife vlogs, but now I think I will pass on them. 😃😉

No, you may actually like it, but I would suggest starting off with a small bag :-).
