Y'Know What The World Needs Now?

Canned Grapes.

I was chowing down a fruit cocktail yesterday afternoon and noticed that I was less interested in finding the scarce half-cherries as I was in the yummy grapes. "No big whoop." I thougth. "I'll just pick up a can o'grapes on the way home."

Y'know what? They've got canned and jarred peaches, pears, pineapple and even cherries, but no canned or jarred grapes.

There are canned oranges, grapefruit, mango and papaya. I've even got a large can of plums in my cupboard that I bought a few months ago and have yet to open. I only bought them because I'd never seen canned plums before.

Fresh is usually better, but there are some exceptions in my book. I prefer canned pineapple and pears to fresh. And grapes. Canned grapes. That's what these troubled times call for.

Canned pineapple over fresh?

Yeah the fresh is a lot more work but so damn much better than that tinny syrup soaked can stuff.

I prefer the consistency of fresh pineapple and, all things considered, it might have a better taste, but the taste of fresh is so darned intense that I can only eat a few pieces before I just can't take another bite. I can eat a whole can of pineapple rings in one sitting.
