However, the real reason that individuals go to markets to buy Cotton Candy Grapes is their extraordinary flavor. 

HISTORY OF THE HEALTHY SNACK

The company behind Cotton Candy Grapes is Grapery, which has been raising grapes since 1996 in the Kern and Tulare counties of California.

Using cross-breeding techniques, Grapery mixed the flavors of the Concord grape with the basic grape vine to make a totally new type of grape with an absolutely exceptional flavor. 

Cotton Candy Grapes became accessible for shoppers to purchase in 2011.
