Does It Really Taste Like Cotton Candy?
Cotton candy is one of the favorite and the most memorable things in our childhood, isn’t it? However, as we grow up, we hesitate to eat it because it has too much sugar in it. For those of you who want to eat cotton candy again without worries, let me introduce something healthier. It is cotton candy-flavored grapes!

Cotton candy-flavored grapes are literally grapes, but they taste just like cotton candy. David Cain, a former USDA scientist, created this “healthy junk food.” “We’re trying to compete with candy bars and cookies and real cotton candy. So we want to develop varieties that especially kids like to eat so they will consume more fruit,” he explained.

In 2003, Cain began his experiment for this brand new type of fruit. He crossbred different varieties of grapes to make it. In fact, this experiment was not easy, because he wanted the grapes to be all natural without using genetic engineering. He explained that it took about ten years for the grapes to taste like cotton candy. In addition, there had to be 100,000 test-tube grown plants to make the experiment succeed.

This sweet fruit is completely natural. It is also known that it contains less sugar than raisins and much healthier than cotton candy. For this reason, many people wish to purchase this brilliant fruit. According to Cain, the first batch of cotton candy grapes took up two acres of land at the vinery in Bakersfield. As it became so popular, the second batch of them was planted on 100 acres of land.

Customers of this fruit said, “It’s an exclusive grape you can’t find anywhere right now,” “Whatever works to get children - and adults - eating better. I’m a big fan of that!”

People are truly in love with these grapes!
