We all know that certain foods taste yummy only when they’re hot (French fries, anyone?) and there are those you should always serve cold no matter the season (ice cream and almost every cocktail). But have you heard about foods that taste much better after you give them a good freeze? And I’m not talking about ice cream and similar desserts. It turns out there exists a number of yummy foods that get a serious flavour boost after you keep them up in your freezer for some time. Here are 10 foods that taste so much better frozen.
Frozen Gummy Bears
Gummy bear’s texture becomes even more delicious as they get frozen and more solid. It’s like a new type of candy!
We’ve enjoyed froyo for decades now, and while it may seem like frozen yoghurt is something you’ll never be able to create at home, sometimes it’s as simple as freezing any yoghurt you like. Yep, just like that! It works best with to-go yoghurts as they are the most balanced and come in a variety of flavours.
Frozen Junior Mints
Yes, this minty goodness is pretty perfect as it is, but try giving it a little boost by keeping it in the freezer for some time. These mints will become super crunchy and won’t melt as fast as they usually do!
Frozen Marshmallow Fluff
There’s hardly anything that tastes better frozen than the marshmallow cream, also known as ‘fluff’. While it is already a heavenly dessert, it becomes even more finger-licking after you leave it for some time in the freezer. Just put some on top of your ice cream or eat on its own – it tastes delicious either way.
Frozen bananas are like a dessert you feel you’ve always craved. Dip them in chocolate to create some scrumptious frozen bites or layer them up with some peanut butter to make a dessert that’ll become your #1 recipe.
Frozen Thin Mints
There’s a trick to keep Thin Mints fresh as long as you want – simply put them in the freezer! You can also eat them right away, enjoying the delicious crunchiness.
Something as simple as frozen grapes can become your favourite snack when you want to enjoy something fruity. Frozen grapes also make great ice cubes and can be used to enhance any drink you like.
Frozen Hostess Cup Cakes
The creamy filling of these delicious cupcakes turns into something that reminds of ice cream, turning a simple sweet treat into a real delicious dessert. You won’t be able to eat these sweets any other way once you try freezing them.
Okay, they’ve invented Snickers ice cream ages ago and it tastes amazing, but frozen Snickers is just as good! It’s sweet, crunchy, and ridiculously easy to make.
Frozen raspberries are a treat perfect all year round. They taste especially yummy if you prepare them during the warmer months and enjoy later when it gets cold and chilly. Turn them into smoothies, add to a cup of hot tea, blend into some yoghurt, or simply enjoy them as they are!
