Cotton candy grapes are one of the most delicious ways to indulge in fruit. Light, fresh and oh-so-sweet, these grapes prove that eating healthy doesn’t have to be a bland experience.
And, now, Walmart is selling cotton candy grape juice that tastes like your favorite grapes in a glass. Containing 50% fruit juice and made from concentrate, the Great Value Cotton Candy Flavored Grape Juice Cocktail will satisfy your sweet tooth without any added sugar.
The fruit cocktail includes grape juice and apple juice, and one 8-ounce glass will meet 100% of your daily requirements for Vitamin C (90 mg). (Hint: While Vitamin C’s powers of warding off common illnesses this time of year are dubious, it can protect against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, eye disease, skin wrinkling, and prenatal health issues — and it may shorten the severity of your cold or flu. Intravenous Vitamin C in very high doses is even being explored as a possible COVID-19 treatment. Another good reason to pour yourself a glass!)
You can try a 64-ounce bottle of Great Value Cotton Candy Flavored Grape Juice Cocktail at your local Walmart for around $2.48.
We also love the idea of using cotton candy grape juice for holiday cocktails. Toast the season with “Christmosas” using this recipe from Delish, swapping out traditional sparkling grape juice for cotton candy grape juice.
Or, try a family-friendly grape juice cocktail that everyone can enjoy. This recipe for Holiday Punch from Favorite Family Recipes fits the bill. It calls for white grape juice but you can easily sub cotton candy grape juice for an added dose of holiday sweetness.
And, here’s an idea you probably never considered before: Using green grapes to make Grinch Fruit Kebabs for your holiday celebrations! Yes, we love this fruit-forward dessert that calls for green grapes, strawberries and marshmallows. Find the steps at Amee’s Savory Dish, and use cotton candy grapes (if you can find them — their late-summer season is over) for your Grinch to make this healthy dessert even yummier.
