Sometimes choosing a fruit is difficult. Do you want a grape? Too small. An apple? Too appley. What if I told you that you could have both at the same time? A fruit-based product called the Grapple let's you have the satisfying size and crunch of an apple with the delicious taste of a grape! No, we're not kidding.
Looking at the label, it states on it the grape flavor as been added, so it is not there in the fruit naturally. Where will end? The possibilities may be endless. I bet some odd names could be conjured up for the 'newly flavored' products.
The company doesn't exactly elucidate on the process to get the artificial flavor into the apples, either:
"prepare them thru a bathing process with a 100% Food Grade/Safe grape flavor solution (proprietary blend). There are other steps both before & after this, but this is the step which imparts the wonderful Grape flavor blend to our primarily Fuji apples!"
I wonder what chemicals are involved in the "before" and "after" processes?
Hmm I wonder what these are like cause the texture of a grape and of an apple are pretty different. And artificial grape flavoring isn't always that nice. My daughter loves grapes, so maybe she'd really enjoy a grapple.
They've been out for a while - I tried these a couple of years ago - and I thought they were delicious! They do have more of a grape-y smell than a taste to them, though. They just taste like regular apples.
