Freeze!

Snacking can be so mundane sometimes. There are only so many choices, such limited varieties. It's time to pull a snack time switch-up. Let's take your go to guilty, or not-so-guilty pleasures and spice things up.

Freezing snack foods is a fun way to make your go-to goodies a little edgy. Have you ever tried frozen grapes? Deeeelish. It's a frozen treat that won't let you down. I have tried this with many fresh fruits, such as strawberries, pineapples, mango, blueberries, raspberries- and to be honest, I've never met a frozen fruit that I didn't respect. Nothing but love.

Do you find yourself mindlessly helping yourself to a sleeve of oreos? Make sure you freeze that sleeve first! Now, I'm not the biggest oreo fan, but putting those suckers in the freezer made me see them in a whole new light-- which leads me to the next treat.

I know everyone is with me, when I say that the Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies are far better frozen. The only down side is- you can't eat just one. I cant put away a box of those, in the span of two commercials.

On to everyone's favorite lunch time snack - fruit roll ups. (Fruit-by-the-foot, gushers, and all of the other futuristic fruit snacks that are out there now.) Freeze these fruity snacks for a delicate and delicious snack.

Frozen candy is also delicious. Gummy bears, chocolate bars, jolly ranchers, you name it- I'll freeze it.

You can mix healthy with sweet also. Try dipping banana slices in dark chocolate and topping with nuts. Put them in the freezer- and you won't soon forget about them!
