Cotton candy grapes have been a long-time favorite among consumers since they were introduced to the market in 2011.
The appropriately called grape with sweet undertones is a refreshing change from its tarter siblings. They've been spotted in numerous produce areas over the years, but only for a limited time.
Fans, on the other hand, may begin to see them more frequently in the near future. Aldi has introduced a new competitor: frozen cotton candy grapes.
While chilling grapes before eating them isn't novel, the freezer-aisle product makes the elusive fruit more accessible to enthusiasts. They'll sell for roughly $4 for a one-pound bag.
The frozen version, however, will have to wait until they are available countrywide on August 23.
David Cain, a horticulturist, created the cotton candy grape to force the fruit back to its natural roots, which had been interfered with by selective replication.
Cain, as previously said, want greater variety for shoppers. "When you go to the supermarket, there are about 15 different kinds of apples: Fuji, Pink Lady, Gala, and Braeburn." "The list goes on," he told the publication.
"We wanted to provide consumers with the same variety of grape flavors." His investment has paid off; the introduction of grapes was a success.
The arrival of the frozen cotton candy grapes has sparked a social media frenzy, with multiple TikTok users advising their followers to "run to Aldi" as quickly as possible.
Some TikTokers have reported that eating them straight from the freezer was unpleasant, thus they should be thawed before eating.
Nonetheless, the frozen grapes are a delightful way to chill off before the summer heat eventually gives way to autumn.
