Organic Sweet Carnival Grapes
Last week my husband brought home a produce carry tote that contained “Organic Sweet Carnival Grapes” which were described as “as sweet as any carnival treat.” To be honest, my first thought was “cotton candy” which didn’t sound appetizing as I was never a fan of the sticky, puffy, blue and pink stuff sold at carnivals. But, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Sweet Carnival grapes are sweet and super crisp (an essential attribute of a good grape for me) but they are especially delicious when ice cold, although they are also exceptional chilled or at room temperature. The flavor is reminiscent of cotton candy for sure so they taste like a sweet crunchy flavorful treat that is a healthier choice than cotton candy. That these green (although they are called “white”) are seedless and organic is an added bonus.
Grown exclusively by Sunview Vineyards, a third generation family farm in California, the Sweet Carnival grape variety was developed by hybridizing two different grape species (similar to hybrids like pluots).
Sweet Carnival is a new fresh grape brand exclusively available from Sunview Vineyards, a third generation California family farm. Developed using a traditional, natural breeding process, these seedless grapes have an unbelievably sweet taste and crisp texture.
Sweet Carnival grapes are in grocery stores nationwide until the end of November so get them while you can. Put them in the freezer for 20 minutes or the refrigerator for an hour and enjoy!
