Sunview touts proprietary Sweet Carnival grape

carnieSunview Marketing International of California Inc., announced the increased availability of its Sweet Carnival golden seedless grapes.

“These amazingly sweet grapes naturally taste like the classic carnival treat you remember,” said Mitch Wetzel, vice president of sales and marketing at Sunview Marketing. “We have been getting an amazing number of calls from customers and consumers anxiously awaiting the arrival of our Sweet Carnival this season. While traditional carnivals and fairs have been postponed this year, Sweet Carnival can give that classic carnival treat for in-home snacking.”

Sweet Carnival brand grapes are non-GMO and were developed using traditional grape breeding methods. The flavor of Sweet Carnival fully develops when the grapes reach a golden color. “The color is the sign we look for and then we know the grapes are perfect,” according to Wetzel. “I was out looking at the grapes and the aroma during my walk through the vineyard  took me back to memories of my childhood at the state fair, walking past vendors selling their sticky sweet spun sugar treats.”

The grapes ship into December.
