Grape soda is one of those drinks that instantly brings us all back to childhood. The bubbly, sweet sip was always so delicious as a kid. If you’re nostalgic for that classic taste, but not all the extra sugar that came along with it, you’re in luck. You can now get that same flavor in the form of actual grapes!
That’s right, like the cotton candy grapes that made a splash a few years ago, the grape soda grape is the result of some clever cross-breeding. They’re also easy to find — your local Sam’s Club should have some in stock for you to sample while filling your cart with bulk item essentials.
For a deliciously healthy midday snack you can eat them as is, but just imagine all of the ways these grapes can add a yummy twist to your meals. We love freezing the fruit to add to our favorite wines in order to cool them down without watery ice cubes. You can also freeze them for a healthy spin on the grape soda slushies we gulped down without a care as kids (until the trip to the dentist, that is). Another great option: Slicing them up in a salad or breakfast oatmeal for a pop of guilt-free sweetness!
We’re not sure how long Sam’s Club intends to keep these juicy grapes around, but we hope other grocers follow their lead. Sneaky sweet treats like these are always the best way to maintain a balanced diet without feeling like you’re depriving yourself of the good stuff.
