Am I the only person not to have heard of this sorcery before now?

antimatter Tue 19-Aug-14 10:18:57

were they called that on the box?

Glastogirl Tue 19-Aug-14 10:19:20

Never heard of it confused where from?

Are they nice? We're growing pineapple flavoured strawberries which are surprisingly nice

I read something about those the other day...what are they like? Tempted to get some but things like that usually end up just tasting the same as the normal version!

Aldi had mango flavoured grapes this weekend. Didn't buy any, seemed weird to me.

I brought them from asda. They justvtasted like grapes lol

Our Asda have the tropical flavour so I bought those, just tasted like normal grapes but more watery. Asda magazine is advertising strawberry ones, and candy floss flavour! They haven't appeared in our Asda yet but I'll try them when they do!

It was Asda I got them from. They are lovely, the first few taste really , um, strawberrish, but I think after a while your brain thinks 'its fucking grapes!! ' in confusion and the taste tails of a bit.

Ooohhh candy floss…

We had some from Sainsbos last week, they were lovely though not really strawberry flavoured.

Is this a UK thing?? I'm in Asia so never heard of it.

They do have flavoured Ribena though!

Wtf are you on about? I've never heard of this! Sounds crazy, and I don't like the unashamed genetic modification of our fruit.

FyreFly Tue 19-Aug-14 11:23:07

I was looking for them at the weekend. My Asda only had "tropical" ones.

BertieBotts Tue 19-Aug-14 11:23:53

How do they make them? Are they injecting them with flavoured water or they've modified/bred them to grow this way?

I'd rather they just had strawberries that tasted like strawberries tbh. The last ones I bought were horrible.

AndHarry Tue 19-Aug-14 11:29:56

Do they have strasberries again? <hopeful>

What the hell do they do to them?! Frightening, really.

lemonpoppyseed Tue 19-Aug-14 11:32:55

I had the candy floss grapes.

Bleurgh. Like PP said, I'd just like grapes that taste like grapes. Is that really too much to ask?
