What do Witch Finger Grapes & Cotton Candy Grapes Taste Like?
Well, I’m going to tell you.
First off, you have the Witch Finger grapes that obviously mimic the look of witch fingers, hence the name…though I must say they kind of also remind me of slightly deflated –ahem- ‘balloons.’ OK, by balloons I mean condoms, for those of you who didn’t get that. They are very, very sweet and have a light crunch to them. The shape in my mouth was interesting, food-wise, outside of fingers and balloons, it is similar to cornichons and little tiny chili peppers.
Due to their small size, you can pop a few in your mouth at one time. It’s a fun treat to eat. They can be a bit pricey, so try and snag some on sale when you see them. Hmmm, looking at this pic, they kind of look like slugs crawling up my hand. This is a pretty disturbing fruit. They should be used in therapy sessions like Rorschach ink blots.
Isn’t it freaky how the seeds inside look like the skeleton of a hand?
Then you have the Cotton Candy grapes, which weirdly, live up to their name. They actually taste like refined sugar, up to the point, when you eat a certain amount, your mouth will start to feel a bit raw. If you are looking for a healthy option to candy, this is definitely your answer. It will nip your sweet tooth in the bud. Strangely, my tummy does feel as if I ate a whole bunch of gummi bears and sour patches at this point. In addition to that sugariness, they are quite rich in flavor and even taste as if they were slightly spiced with an aromatic in some way, or some type of baking extract.
