If you’ve yet to try cotton candy grapes, then you’re seriously missing out on a deliciously sweet snack. While cotton candy grapes are not as new to the food scene as you might think, they are in fact just as nutritious as any other grape. Even though they have 12 percent more sugar than your average grape, it’s still less than you’d find in raisins. If you happened to miss the memo on this tasty bunch of fruit, TikTok has rejuvenated it: People on the platform have gotten into freezing the grapes to use in different ways, giving us a reason to seek out the elusive fruit (or dessert, depending on whom you ask) once again.

Now, thanks to Aldi, you won’t even have to freeze them yourself. The popular German-owned grocer will offer Frozen Cotton Candy Grapes for the first time in the U.S. starting Wednesday, August 23. The exclusive launch comes in direct response to the viral TikTok trend, and will only be available at Aldi while supplies last. Each bag will retail for $3.99, and the options for consuming them are endless. Whether you reach for them as a late-night snack, swap them with the orange in an Aperol Spritz, or just eat them by the handful while laying by the pool, cotton candy grapes are a trend worth partaking in. 

Based on the hype online alone, these grapes are definitely going to sell out fast. If you’re lucky enough to get to Aldi in time before they’re all gone, make sure to stock up and thank your lucky stars these are meant to be frozen!
