SOUR PATCH GRAPES – HEALTHIER THAN THE CANDY!

SOUR PATCH GRAPES ARE A GREAT SOUR CANDY FIX! WITH ONLY TWO INGREDIENTS THEY TASTE LIKE YOU THREW GRAPES INTO THE MACHINES AT THE SOUR PATCH CANDY FACTORY! 

Sour Patch Grapes are my new go to for my sour candy fix! With only two ingredients, these candied grapes come together in seconds and taste like you threw deliciously tart green grapes into the machines at the Sour Patch Candy factory!

I feel like every time I say “check back in for xyz recipe tomorrow” I end up delaying the recipe and picking something else I just can’t wait to share! Today’s post was such an unexpected home run I didn’t want to wait another day to post it! In fact while most of my posts are not made/eaten the day before the post, these Sour Patch Grapes were actually made last night and I stayed up late to write this post and bump my Vanilla Ice Cream for them

All my life I have been a HUGE fan of Sour Patch Kids and sour candy in general. I’m such a fan of them that I had started buying them in bulk and then switched to bulk but individually wrapped packages so I don’t eat a huge handful! The tart and sweet flavors are a favorite and given a choice between a bowl of sour candy and ANY other dessert (ok 99% of other desserts) I would choose the bowl of sour candy. 

I chose Jolly Rancher Green Apple, Jolly Rancher Watermelon (I can’t do cherry or strawberry jello ever again after the hospital stay when I had my youngest. Red jello is officially not a part of my diet ever again!), Jello Lemon and Jello Orange

Here is my method (I used toothpicks since I had a box of 1000 laying around not being used). Take one bowl of freshly washed green grapes and a small bowl of water. (Foam dinosaurs optional)

Poke a toothpick in through the spot where the stem was attached. Using toothpick, dip in water and roll in mix that is in a tilted bowl for easy rolling

Let the grapes stay on the toothpicks until the liquid is dried and they have formed a crust of sweet and sour magic.

Put in fridge for as long as it takes to chill them completely. I also froze a few to test, I will update my post in the morning about how good they are! Once they are fully chilled you can easily remove the toothpicks. Repeat the steps with each individual flavor, you can choose any flavors you’d like, I chose mine to mimic the colors of original Sour Patch Kids. Once they’ve dried, serve it up in a bowl and watch your toddler (if you happen to have one handy) say “wooooooowwwwwwwwww” over and over again!

INGREDIENTS
3 pounds of green grapes
toothpicks
1 cup water

PREPARATION
1. Pour ⅓ of each flavor into small bowls.

2. Poke a toothpick in through the spot where the stem was attached.

3. Using toothpick, dip in water and roll in mix. (Or just have a bowl of grapes sitting in water).

4. Put in fridge for as long as it takes to chill them completely.

5. I also froze a few to test, I will update my post in the morning about how good they are!

6. Once they are fully chilled you can easily remove the toothpicks.

7. Enjoy!

Mixed Review: Crate & Barrel vs. Trader Joe's Cornbread

Mixed Review: Crate & Barrel vs. Trader Joe's Cornbread: "'The Trader Joe's cornbread was some of the best cornbread I've tasted, from a mix or otherwise.'



Ever wonder about a boxed mix you've seen in the store? Is it any good? Could it replace something you'd otherwise make from scratch? Welcome to Mixed Review, where the whole point is putting boxed mixes to the test! —The Mgmt.

Two years ago, I did a roundup of standard supermarket cornbread mixes for this column and was generally unimpressed with all of them. They were gummy, thin, and cloyingly sweet. I called Jiffy, my top choice, 'solid, if not sensational' and recommended doctoring it up with add-ins like sun-dried tomatoes, poppy seeds, and pecans.

This year, I thought it was time to revisit the cornbread basket by comparing two readily available specialty mixes: Crate & Barrel's Buttermilk Cornbread Mix ($8.95) and Trader Joe's Cornbread Mix ($2.69).
