Grapple - Do We Need Apples That Taste Like Grapes?

I blame my inability to cook for my low threshold for boredom at the grocery store. Since I'm not going to do much with ingredients, I gravitate towards foods that look or smell appealing all by themselves, without embellishment from me. My biggest weakness is hybrid fruits and vegetables (which reminds me that I haven't seen brocciflower in quite a long time). So, when I saw Grapples in the produce department the other day, of course I had to buy some. They were in packages of 4 for $4.99, which I suppose is expensive for apples. The label on the package promised that the apples - which look and feel exactly like apples - would actually taste like grapes. True, if I wanted something that tasted like grapes, I could have bought grapes, but where's the novelty in that?
It turns out that the Grapple, sold by Get Fit Foods and created by C&O Nursery, is not a hybrid afterall. These apples are Fuji apples infused with Concord grape flavor through a patented process. How does it taste? Well, to me, kind of sour (though this may be attributable to the particular apple, and not to all of its apple kind) and strange, as if the apple had been soaked in a bath of grape Kool-Aid. It may grow on me. I'm already thinking it might taste great coated with caramel.
