Drops, that is. It’s that time of year…the weather gets warmer, the sun shines brighter, the birds get chirpier, and green-grape loyalists start pining for their beloved Sugar Drops. This variety has steadily increased in popularity over the years, and it’s no wonder: with their plump size and succulent sweetness, Sugar Drops may have cracked the perfect-green-grape code. They’re delicious chilled right out of the fridge and, while this is a somewhat controversial opinion around here, (whispers) even better frozen.
And whether your customers want to pop ’em fresh one by one, or plop ’em frozen into cocktails, they’re, without a doubt, going to want to fill their carts full of ’em. Sugar Drops will start shipping the first week of July, so there’s no time like the present to start thinking promotions. Green grapes are an easy sell in the summer months; they’re naturally cooling and a must in any respectable fruit salad. However, some green grapes can be a bit too puckery, and people will occasionally pass them by in the produce section—fearing foisting sour bombs on to unsuspecting loved ones. So, it’s important to let shoppers know that if they love the taste of green grapes but not necessarily the little wince that can come along with it, then Sugar Drops should be their fruity summer staple.
Bright green, gorgeous, and oh-so-sweet is really all you need to know about Sugar Drops to start dreaming up some tempting summer promotions.
