Cotton Candy Grapes

15 Aug

Last week, I read on my friends Denny and Reilly’s blog about Cotton Candy grapes.  I can’t begin to tell you excited I was to read about these grapes.  In fact, Denny and Reilly’s mom wrote:

“Now for the few of you who haven’t heard of these (probably our overseas readers) these grapes REALLY do taste like Cotton Candy (or Fairy Floss as it is called in other parts of the world) and the best thing for Mom is they are extremely low in acidity.”

I just knew my mom would love these delectable little morsels so I wrote them on her weekly grocery list.  Well, the first market mom went to they didn’t have a clue as to what they were.  So mom went to another market.  And there they were – I do believe mom said she heard angels singing.  She picked up a bag and they are expensive – around $4.99 a POUND.  So mom muttered something about them needing to be made of fairy dust… I didn’t get that.

She got home with her purchase and had one.  Friends, I can not describe the look and joy that went across mom’s face.  It was priceless regardless of how much these grapes cost.  Yes, they were that good.  Then mom had to get daddy to try them.  And she video taped it for you to view.  Enjoy my friends and if you come across these, you have to try them!

    How strange they can make them taste like cotton candy. Sounds like Harry Potter’s Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans. At least they don’t taste like ear wax. Bwahaha!

      They really do taste great. Of course, mom gave me one but said I can’t have a lot of them – I can have the cheaper ones. Spoil sport she is huh? XOXO – Bacon

    Yummy! Glad you found them in a store so you could try them and report back to us. They look just like grapes. Cotton candy reminds me of the fair and Little League Baseball games. I even learned to make it on someone else’s machine for fundraising.

      Oh mom did – she’s good like that. She was determined to find these creatures. But who put it on her grocery list… I did! Then she won’t give me bunches – only 1 or 2 here/there. She says I can only have the regular ones. Hows that for being thankful huh? Snorts and stomps hooves. XOXO – Bacon

    Yesterday Mom told Dad she had tried them and he needed to look for them when he was out shopping. (Dad does most of our shopping). We think he forgot. Mom is putting on her shoes…

      Snorts with piggy laughter. These are pretty good with no sour taste. Awesome they are… I had a few last night after I begged daddy. XOXO – Bacon
      P.S. Mom had to go to two different markets to find them.

        I must certainly not. Can you imagine how these grapes would be in wine? Oh no! My mom has a far away look in her face now. Too funny! XOXO – Bacon

        Oh brother – wouldn’t that be awesome?! But then again on the other hoof, I’m not sure if I could keep mom off the bottle. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    My Mama has been reading about these grapes and some other specialty flavors. But she is too darn cheep to shell out. Tomatoes..she just throws money at them, but grapes are a hard sell. Sigh. Your pal Skyler

      Snorts! My mom was a hard sell but then she wanted to know what they were like. She does love them now. So, we might have created a monster here at the Hotel Thompson… well that’s what daddy says anyway. XOXO – Bacon
