Every year when the weather gets warmer there's one type of grape that hits the shelves that people seem to go gaga over, the cotton candy grapes.  I see why too, the packaging is usually pink so they stand out, and the name is super intriguing.   I've picked up a bag before and they are definitely delicious, and now you can find them in grape juice form.

In case you haven't heard of them before, what exactly are cotton candy grapes?  Well it's actually a hybrid grape to created to make the super sweet flavor that almost tastes like cotton candy.  In an interview with NPR, Horticulturalist David Cain tells them how he and his team created the sweeter grape:

Cain and his team at International Fruit Genetics in Bakersfield, Calif., made the Cotton Candy grape by hybridizing two different grape species. So the designer fruit is actually a hybrid — like pluots, peacharines and cherums.
