Taste test: I'm no great expert at Red Vines, having reviewed only one kind of them before, but I did think that the whole point was that they were red.
That's why this purple-colored grape version baffled me, and it's also why I bought it. The purple vines had the same shapes as the red ones, with spirals wrapped around the outside and a hollow center. The big disappointment here was the taste — very bland. Not much grape. I think they could've done much better.
