Sainsbury’s launches candy floss flavoured grapes

Scientists dream up fruit that tastes like the fluffy fairground favourite


Children will soon be queuing up for their healthy treats after scientists launch candy floss flavoured grapes.


UK retailer Sainsbury’s has become the first supermarket to sell the new “Cotton Candy” snack, with 35 stores stocking it on a trial run.
