Grapple brand apples begin either as Washington State Gala or Fuji apples. The Fuji is known for being an immensely flavorful, big, super-sweet, crisp apple. Galas are a crisp, aromatically sweet, snappy apple. Both varieties rank high amongst consumers in popularity and work well creating this delicious fruit treat. Through a complex, patented process, these apples are gently bathed with an ingredient mix that is primarily grape flavor and pure water. Through this method, the apples take on a unique taste and aroma kids love.
