Grapes freeze well as long as you eat them frozen or are going to cook them down into a syrup or jam. Thawed to room temp the texture is kind of icky (in my opinion). You can let them start to thaw, so they have a slushy texture, or straight from rhe freezer they'll have a popsicle texture.
I LOVE frozen grapes.

I absolutely love frozen grapes. It's one of my go to healthy snacks.
I've found that they don't keep for an extended period of time though. They start turning brown and somewhat mushy after 2-3 weeks, maybe less. It's been awhile since I've had grapes as they're quite expensive here out of season.

I've never heard of cotton candy grapes, but I'm crazy interested! That would be so weird to eat, I think my taste buds would be confused haha. But I second (third?) what the others said, frozen grapes are super yummy, but don't forget 'em in there because they don't last forever.
I say if you like them go for it but generally grapes have a lot of sugar, so freezing is a good way to portion control them. I imagine cotton candy grapes may actually have a higher sugar content? (bred for sweetnesss) but who knows.
Edited to add: I was able to find it. They are slightly more caloric at 50 calories per half cup vs 31 calories per cup of regular grapes. I am guessing that grapes calorie count is an average though because I'm sure some grapes are less calories than others (like I find green grapes pretty sweet but black grapes seem less)
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.
