The Grapple

For years I have looked on with great anticipation of trying a succulent new fruit called the grapple.  The texture of an apple with the taste of a grape?  Yes, please!  The only reason I have not bought a package is because they are $3.99 for four, and I am incredibly cheap.

Today, I decided to treat myself to these grapples.  I figured if I were to buy a pack of chips or candy or some other kind of junk, I would spend that much, so I was justified in spending a dollar per piece.  I was freaking out a little inside the truth be told.

I had such high hopes for these small delicacies.  We got home, I unloaded the few things I bought, then I proceeded to cut my new treasure.  Ever so carefully did I cut my hybrid.  I didn't want to waste any of it!  After all, I had spent a whole dollar on just that one.

There it was in front of me, the moment I had been waiting for for years now.  I brought the wedge up to mouth and tasted it.  Then I thought, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?"  These taste like somebody took a Fuji apple and soaked it in grape flavored...something.  Not grape extract or even grape juice, but "grape flavored" candy.  Disappointment galore!

Do you think I can get my money back?
