Consumers now can find in grocery stores a twist on the traditional apple that offers a unique experience: Grapple Brand Apples are the only apple on the market that crunches like an apple, and tastes like a grape, according to a company news release.
“We started getting calls months ago with people asking when and where they can purchase Grapples. I’m very excited to say that time has arrived and the stores across America are now displaying them amongst the other fruit,” said Todd Snyder, co-developer of Grapples.
The health benefits of Grapple Brand Apples are the same as for other apples. The process of making them does not add any extra sugar, calories, carbohydrates or anything else; the apple maintains its natural supply of vitamins, minerals, nutrients and fiber, the news release says. They are a good source of fiber, have a low glycemic index and contain about 95 calories, depending on the size. They are not genetically altered and all ingredients are USDA and FDA approved and the process has been licensed by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.
Grapple Brand Apples begin either as Washington State Gala or Fuji apples. The Fuji is known for being an immensely flavorful, big, super-sweet, crisp apple. Galas are a crisp, aromatically sweet, snappy apple. Through a complex, patented process, these apples are bathed with an ingredient mix that is primarily grape flavor and pure water. Through this method, the naturally porous apples take on a unique taste and aroma kids love, the news release says.
Grapple Brand Apples are widely available in grocery stores nationwide through May. They are sold in a 4-pack clamshell with an average MSRP of $3.49-5.99 or in a 4-pack poly sleeve with an average MSRP of $2.99-$3.99.
