Snack Tip of the Day: Frozen Grapes

I think I must have picked this one up from my Weight Watchers days, but I had certainly forgotten about it: Frozen Grapes!

I broke of a bunch of 25 white seedless grapes, washed them, then stuck them in the freezer overnight. Delicious.

Now, why would you want to freeze a grape?

Well, actually, there are a couple of reasons.

1) Freezing seems to enhance the natural sweetness of the grape, which if you have a sweet tooth, as I do, that’s always a plus.

2) Freezing, if you live in a warm environment, is very cooling.

2) But, perhaps even more importantly, freezing slows you down. I don’t know about you, but I can eat 25 grapes in about two minutes and with a maximum chews of about 2 per grape. When they’re frozen it doesn’t work that way. Let’s be honest, when’s the last time it took you fifteen minutes to eat 25 grapes? When’s the last time you chewed a single grape 20 times before swallowing?

Anyway, give it a try. If you don’t like them, they’ll always thaw!
