Same with cherries and strawberries. If only I could do that with beer! Walk into a beer store "I don't know if I want the whole case, let me try a bottle first. Okay, not quite what I'm looking for, let me try another brand"
Question for you..
How is testing grapes any different from eating WRAPPED candy from the bins? Who's to say somebody didnt sneeze on the exposed grapes or run their hands all over them?

How do we know someone didn't sneeze on the food before it was wrapped at the packing facility?

I was TOTALLY gonna ask the same thing - you KNOW that people have touched all the grapes, rifling through them for the perfect bunch, not to mention the pesticide residue on there I'd rather lose $1 on sour grapes that get E.coli from eating unwashed ones

LMFAO!!!!!! it's all about the grapes.

i see i stirred up a bit of a debate when it comes to grapes.
Beth made a great point.
of course i wash the grapes...oooh about 4 times over at home
as Beth said...the pesticides alone are disgusting...but to think that someone had their hand up their ass, or sneezed or blew their noses and touched all the fookin grapes makes me both and well pretty much
No offense to theGenericPoet.

i'm not much of a candy person, so I didn't really have an opinion on the original question....but like the Generic Poet said, I kinda stay away from bulk bins altogether because even tho they provide many scoops, some ppl just dive right in with their hands.
