Someone brought brownie bites into the breakroom today. I don't know who they are, but I love them.
While at the store yesterday I spied apples inside of a plastic container dealy that's kind of like plastic egg cartons only 1) for apples and 2) for only four apples, as opposed to a dozen.
Curious as to why apples would need to be treated with the sort of care that one might reserve for the Hope diamond, assuming the Hope diamond needed to be treated like an egg, I went over to take a look.
Turns out they were Grapples
. Apples that taste like grapes.
Now you, like me, might be thinking "Huh, some variety of apples that naturally taste sorta-kinda like grapes, ergo a marketing hook." You, like me, would be wrong. Instead they are regular apples which are injected with, according to the label on the package (but not on their website that I can find) artificial
At which point I stand there and stare and wonder to myself how exactly does any of this work? Remember my befuddlement over cinnamon sugar? And how making cinnamon sugar is easier than anything involved in making what you would put the cinnamon sugar on
, ergo why I did not get the need for a premade cinnamon sugar shortcut?
This is me only more beffudled about grapples. Because... nobody can get their hands on an apple that's already sweet and therefore palatable for children? Because you honestly and seriously cannot come up with another answer to the question of "If I want to feed my kids fruit and
something that tastes like grapes, what would I give them?" Or perhaps because you were saying to yourself that you liked the idea of eating more natural foods, but not without finding a way to add chemicals to the mix?
I... yeah. Huh??
