Would You Eat More Fruit if It Tasted Like Cotton Candy?

Would you eat more healthy foods like fruits and vegetables if they tasted like candy -- specifically, cotton candy? If you answered, "yes" to that question, the first tasty evidence is already hitting produce departments at stores all across the country.

Behold the "cotton candy" grape.

The cotton candy grapes look like an ordinary green grape. But, one bite tells your taste buds, this is anything but ordinary. And, social media is exploding with reactions and reviews of the new grape.

The exclusive grower of these super-sweet grapes is a California company called Grapery. The company's CEO, Jim Beagle told the NY Post the fruit has been on the market since 2013. However, the vineyard has recently focused on increasing production of the cotton candy grapes. That effort has paid off in both increased crop yield and a growing demand from the marketplace.

The company clearly states these grapes are not the product of any genetic engineering. In fact, the label also announces the cotton candy variety of grapes are "sustainably grown" and "non-GMO."

In New York City, the grapes are carried by the grocery delivery service Fresh Direct and on the shelves of Le District, a store in lower Manhattan.

TheBlaze visited Le District and purchased two pounds of the grapes in order to test them on the staff in our NYC newsroom
