The other day one of my fellow bento bloggers had mentioned that she had come across Cotton Candy flavored grapes on the internet. I checked out the website. I thought it was interesting but then just put it out of my mind. I shop at a small grocery store that very rarely has anything "new". It generally takes months for new products to reach the shelves there. Imagine my surprise today when I saw these in the produce section!! They were a bit pricey for my budget. I generally don't like to pay more than $1.99/lb for grapes. These were $3.99/lb. I bought them anyway because I wanted to try them!! My kids flipped! They smell like cotton candy when you open the bag. When you bite into one the first thing you taste is cotton candy. Then it sort of dissipates and just tastes like a regular grape, which I like. I think munching on a 1/2 cup of cotton candy would get to be a bit much! My kids loved them. I thought they were fun. I'd like to try the Grapery's other flavors but because of the price I probably wouldn't buy them frequently.
I have some rolled up deli chicken, pea pods, Tribe "Everything" humus and Cotton Candy grapes.
