LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Cotton candy grapes are being gobbled up as they make their annual appearance on grocery store shelves.
The specialty grapes are tiny and very sweet.
Fans say they taste like candy and post pictures of the grapes on social media.
The flavors come from a fruit geneticist. They are not genetically modified, but they are cross-pollinated.
The latest variety is called “Flavor Pops.”
Cotton candy grapes cost more than table grapes. Promoters claim they’re packed with nutrition.
Growers say they tried making wine from cotton candy grapes, but the results were bad.
