*tastes

Saw these at the grocery store today. I've seen them before, but today - I smelled them. Oh my word they smell and taste so good.
Has anyone else tried them? Liked them? Thought they were weird?

I bought them based on the smell, but I didn'tt find that they tasted the way they smelled. They do taste a bit different - but I couldn't put my finger on it. It is a "I'll pay the money once just to say I've had them" sorta thing for me

I thought they looked cool, but then I saw they aren't really a hybrid, but injected with artifical flavor. It kind of grossed me out.

We tried them a couple years ago and didn't really care for them.

I bought them once several years ago and no one was impressed. I also thought they smelled better than they tasted.

Haven't had them, nor even knew they existed. But loving grapes as I do, I'll be sure to watch for them. Thanks for the heads up!

We bought a 4-pack back when they first came out to satisfy curiosity. I thought it tasted pretty good. But I think most apples are bland to begin with, so any kind of additional flavor was an improvement IMHO. I usually can spot chemical flavors right away but it didn't scream "fake from a test tube" to me. It also didn't really taste like a grape, either. Just a more flavorful, frutier apple. I haven't bought them since, because I pretty much stick to Granny Smith apples. And they were pretty expensive for what we got. It was good for a novelty item, but that's about it.

not impressed. I thought they tasted like an apple dipped in purple kool aid.

I've never heard of them nor seen them. What's the texture, like an apple with a crunch?

I thought they were kind of eh too.

Our Kroger used to have them in huge display pots in the front vestibule, so the whole area would smell like them when you first walked in. At first it was a unique and nice smell, but then I noticed after I tried them and didn't care for them, I didn't even like the smell of them anymore.

They are weird. Happy that I tried them at least once though.

I bought them years ago. We tried one and couldn't get over the artificial taste. We turned the remainder apples into a science project to see how long it would take for them to rot. They never did! We gave up after a month.
