grapple

i finally got to try out a grapple (pronounced Grape-L).

i've been obsessed with them for months now! and i finally bought some. they're still $3.99 at ralph's, but the korean market had them for $2.50... and i just HAD to have them...

the initial smell of grape is a little disconcerting because it's sooo strong. and it smells like the fake grape... but it tastes pretty good. tastes like apple with a liiiitle bit of grape... i like the consistency and texture of them, too. mmm...

kinda pricey for freakin' apples... but at least i finally got to sate my curiosity.

You're so funny. Did you eat all 4 of them? And did you consume liquor with them?

Is it just me or did I read about Grapples a while back in your blog?

That's funny...can't say I've ever heard of a Grapple. Should give that a try. Although, every time I buy apples thinking I'm gonna start eating healthy, they always go bad waiting for me to eat 'em.

Get in quick, Grace - Grapples could be the next big thing in booze. The grapes and apples could make an interesting blend of wine and cider...

jeanette: no. i wish i could've. unfortunately, i had it at lunch... and well, i turn really red when i drink... so no liquid lunches for me.

david: yeah... i put in a link to the original post... didn't see it?

ed: (can i call you ed? i promise if we meet in person, i won't call you ed if you don't want... hehe) just buy like, 2 or something. and make yourself do it! you know what they say about an apple a day! :)

david: can't go into that here. sorry!

le: yeah. if the price goes down! goddamn! and thanks... i figured there wasn't enough cursing on my blog.

ian: that's a damned fine idea...

I'm impressed with Edward's apple going bad on him abilities. I mean, doesn't it take 3 weeks for apples to go bad?

And, Gracey, what's that saying? An apple a day helps with sexual play. Is that it?

Dude, if I have another kid I'm naming him Banoughnut.

From the title I thought you were becoming a pro-wrestler.

grace, ed will do...i've been called worse.

jeanette, I wouldn't really call it an ability...more like a gift. How many people you know can have a doz. apples go bad on 'em in under 2 weeks.

But damn if an apple a day helps with sexual play, give me two of 'em bitches...at every meal!

gm: oh, it is tastiness... once you get past that overpowering smell. heh. but, i like artificial grape. :P

jeanette: maybe he leaves them out :P yeah... i believe that saying is correct. awesome. i'm so going to be the BESTEST in bed! :P

cat: really??? but, why??? they're... they're so nice and crisp and tasty! wow... you're a freak! :P hehehe.

lar: that sounds fucking AWESOME. i'll invest a buck into your endeavors...

cl: mmm, mutants!

wn: i'm totally going to... just wait and see... :D

ed: you might not want 2 at every meal... you might have... uhm... bathroom issues... so you might end up being great in bed, but... no one would want to sleep with you :P hehe...

j: should i mail you some? :P

Blogger Anon said...

Grace- I'd love you to mail me some! YUM! :)

Grace, he leaves his apples out?? Isn't that kind of, err, immodest?

Oh, and I don't think two apples a day is extreme or would cause any problems. You're supposed to eat, like, 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day.

Personally, I think eating kimchi would cause more problems. :p

Man, they'll mate anything these day...geesh. Good thing I don't like grape flavour and I'm allergic to apples.

I still say Ewwww--I'll get my grape/apples in a jug with Ocean Spray on it.

Also girl-Grace, you gotta change the title of your page. I can't be logging on to f-ing surrounded by... at work. (Not like that's going to stop me from doing it anyway!)

Blogger grace said...

j: for reals? will they be okay unrefrigerated for 2 or 3 days?

jeanette: yeah... but the same thing for 5 servings? i don't know... there ain't nuthin' wrong with kimchi :P

giest: you're allergic to apples? poor thing. my brother is, too.

as: awwww, you don't like the new name? :P hehe. i'll change it sometime... when i get bored of it. heh.
