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.

this sounds so weird...is anyone going to try this?
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?
What a great idea. Apples are good for me, but I get tired of the same taste. I can't wait to try these.
I think grapefruit is enough for me. Though I would not mind potatoes with chicken/lamb flavor without killing poor innocent creatures. Would be nice.
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.
Dang, I was hoping this was a new type of apple I could plant.
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.
Then again, I love grape kool-aid, too.
