Yesterday I was saw something in the market (not my normal market mind you, I was in the infamous Rock and Roll Ralphs, market of choice for underfed wanna-be musicians and the Osbourne family alike) that made me stop and gasp. Packages of four ($5.00) seemingly innocent Fuji Apples, oddly, labeled “Grapples.” Upon further inspection I saw there was a list of ingredients, “Fuji Apples and artificial Grape Flavoring.” Yup, that’s right kids, in case you don’t like the taste of apples, or the juiciness of a grape, you can just bite into one of these frankenfoods instead! Whoo-eee. Amazingly, I resisted buying some because nothing could compel me to support the makers of this atrocity. Next up, Bluenanas!
Star Spots At Rock and Roll Ralphs, last 6 months:
Lance Bass of N'Sync and aborted space flight, Sharon Osbourne, Shannon Dougherty,
Jerri from Suvivor, Steve Jones (Guitar player - The Sex Pistols. Also local radio DJ Indie 103.1)
Compared to Star Spots at Whole Foods, last 6 months:
Heather Graham, Mena Suvari, Michael Vartan, Courteney Cox Arquette
Annette Benning, Kathy Kinney (Mimi on the Drew Carey Show), Peter Falk
Jason Lee and an assortment of Wayans brothers
Whole Foods is the clear winner...

You know I saw these in Safeway yesterday and was wondering what they were. I thought they were some kind of hybrid. Artificial flavoring in FRUIT?! What is this world coming to?!
a friend told me to try them and i actually wasn't sure about spending that much for fruit at a regular grocery store...but i bought them and thought they TASTED okay - i thought, "gee, how did they cross a grape and apple." then i found later it was flavor-injected/soaked. EW.Post a Comment
