There’s a buzz circulating in smalltown USA, and I’m not talking about Justin Bieber’s birthday. I came across a new item at the grocery store. There, between the strawberries and pre-cut watermelon, sat an unassuming bag containing three fruits. At first glance, I thought they were apples because that’s what they looked like. Then I saw the label: “grapples.” I read the word with a short “a” so it rhymed with, well, apples. The association seemed pretty obvious.
