Sour Patch grapes?! 3 recipes that turn this fruit into a sweet treat

Sour Patch grapes are hitting social media hard!

They’re usually just an ingredient in your chicken salad or a side on your lunch plate, but these grapes are moving on to dessert.

Studio 5 Food Editor Maddy Tolman shared three ideas to turn your bag of grapes into candy. “Grapes are kind of having a moment right now,” Maddy claimed. “These recipes are all over my social media right now. It’s the new Tik Tok trend that everyone is talking about—and it’s easy to see why.”

Maddy’s candy grape menu included Sour Patch grapes, Jolly Rancher grapes, and Fruit Roll-Up grapes. If you only try one, please let it be the Sour Patch grapes. We couldn’t get enough of them.


Sour Patch Grapes

  • Lime Juice (from a fresh lime)

  1. Rinse and wash grapes and pluck from the vine. Place in a large bowl.
  2. Squeeze fresh lemon and lime juice all over the grapes, enough to coat.
  3. Roll or shake the grapes in Jell-O powder of choice.
