    Default Grapes

    Did everybody else have to be hospitalised to get some grapes years ago, or was I a deprived child?

    I could have apples, oranges, melon, the occasional banana, but never grapes. My mum used to always buy grapes when she visited the hospital, but we never had them in our house any other time. Why were they only a sick persons fruit?

    We had grapes when I was a kid but only green ones, red ones didn't exist. It was before the days of pre-packaged fruit and you had to weigh your own, I used to love finding the biggest longest bunch and lifting it up high and bouncing it about to see if any fell off (I made my own fun as a child).

    I was hospitalised with bum-grapes, or Harry Styles as they're widely known as these days.

    I wouldn't want to eat them.

    It did always seem to be grapes that you got at hospital, but we did have them at other times too.

    When I was sick enough to be bought Lucozade it was always straight from the shop still warm. You could never have it cold, you always had it room temperature like a medicine sat at the side of you.

    I like grapes, but they've gone up to 2.20 a box (500g I think) from 2 so I'm thinking twice about buying them at the mo as 10% is a big increase. Bananas are dirt cheap still so I'm eating loads of them..

    I miss seedless grapes, do you still get them in the UK?

    I've just bought some Spanish ones. There were 4.50 a kilo here, so well within your grape budget, Camb.
