What are cotton candy grapes?

Cotton candy grapes are, simply put, grapes that have the sweet taste of cotton candy. 

According to Only Foods, this is a seedless green grape that was released to the public in 2011 in California. It took more than 10 years for David Cain and his team to produce this kind of grape by hybridizing grapes which give it its distinct cotton candy-like taste. In a report by Los Angeles Times, Cain said they created this to compete against candy bars and cookies. Cain is a former scientist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
