Sour Grapes is a punk teen girl introduced in 2015 in Season Four of Berry Bitty Adventures, and has the spotlight in the 2018 series of 2D animated YouTube special shorts. Her twin sister is Sweet Grapes and they run a food truck together. Sour's scheming cousin is Raisin Cane. She is not a villain and is completely different from 1980s and 2003 Sour Grapes. She is tough, competitive, and butchy which makes her seem like the kinder 2009 version of Peppermint Fizz.
Sour grapes is a pale skinned girl with ombre lavender and lime eyes. She has natural purple hair in a choppy bob, with lime green highlights. She has a black headband with a grape on it, her dress is green and purple striped with black sleeves. She has white and and black striped leggings, black combat boots, and layered necklaces. Sometimes she wears black athletic shorts like when camping. She has a very punk and edgy style, and is the third tomboy butch character in Strawberry Shortcake, the first being Peppermint Fizz and then Raspberry Torte.
She wears green eyeshadow. She is the first character in the franchise to have highlights.
She came into Berry Bitty Adventures as a last minute thought to replace tomboy, antagonistic characters such as Peppermint Fizz and Raspberry Torte (2003). Sour Grapes is much like her namesake. She appears to be generally in a foul mood and unpleasant to be around. She is often in a grumpy mood, and has a fiesty temper that can flare up any time. But she isn't that mean when you get to know her. She's a realist, not a pessimist. She has spunk and edge and does things with gusto. She likes to seem tough and brave. She's mischievous and likes to play pranks and trick people. She is competitive and energetic. She is protective of her sister, Sweet Grapes, and always tries to help her. They act like polar opposites, but they are best friends and love each other. Sour Grapes starts to seem a bit more 'sweet' in comparison to her cousin, the greedy and social media addicted Raisin Cane. Sour Grapes is often annoyed and groans at the schemes of her cousin. She is more intelligent and clever than her ditsy, head in the clouds sister. Her grumpy competitive personality makes her very similar to Angel Cake personality wise.
- In the 2018 2D animated Youtube Series, she seems to have matured, just like Peppermint Fizz did in her transition from 2003 to 2007. She is still sarcastic and has a annoyed realist view, but she is much nicer. She is 'berry' nice to Strawberry Shortcake and Orange Blossom, and has found a close friendship with them. She loves her sister and helps her and is concerned for her. She's very clever and intelligent, often coming up with ideas to help her ditsy sister. She's tough and wants to be seen as brave. We see in one of the shorts she can be insecure about being different from her sister.
