As a society, we're taking multi-tasking to a new level. According to MarketWatch, the seasonal treat known as Grapples (pronounced grape-ells) are becoming increasingly popular.
What are they? Grape flavored apples!
Grapples are sold from October until May. The unique fruit is made from Washington State Gala apples and Fuji apples, which are then drenched in a mix of Concord grape flavor and water. The apples remain their natural color--red.
If you think this extra flavoring is unhealthy or adds unnecessary calories, think again! According to the company website, making Grapples does not add extra calories or sugar to the healthy fruit.
On a personal note, I'm not a fan of grape-flavored anything (except natural grapes) so I probably wouldn't spend the extra money (a pack of four Grapples cost between $2.99 to $3.99) on this concoction.
Would you try Grapples? Have you ever tried them?
