SELAH, Wash., April 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Something new and something old- in one bite! Enjoy the taste of a delicious Washington State apple with the aromatic scent of Concord grapes all in one sweet bite. This spring, liven up your grocery basket with Grapple® Brand Apples, a fruit that crunches like an apple and taste like a grape!
Grapples begin as a Washington State Gala or Fuji apple. Through a complex, patented process, these apples are gently bathed with an ingredient mix that is primarily grape flavor and pure water. Through the process the apples take on the grape flavor, which doesn't add any extra sugar, calories, carbohydrates or anything else. In fact the apples maintain their natural supply of vitamins, minerals, nutrients and fiber.
Kids love Grapples because they combine two of their favorite fruits- apples and grapes into one crunchy bite. Parents love them because they are as healthy as if just picked off a tree and kids will eat them up. You can eat them fresh or use them in recipes in place of where you would use any apple.
Because Grapples are no ordinary apple, they make any meal a special occasion. Enjoy this recipe that kids(and adults) simply love and of course can be made anytime there are Grapples in the kitchen.
