Meatballs with grape jelly sauce??

I am making meatballs for superbowl to take to SOs parents. I, of course, want them to turn out good and impress everyone. I found a recipe that calls for grape jelly and chili sauce mixed together as a sauce for the meatballs. I have made it and not tasted it yet...has anyone heard of this? I hope they turn out cause SO scoffed as he'd never heard of such a thing as grape jelly but I told him it was either grape jelly or cranberry sauce(which he hates) so I'm hoping to prove him wrong..
