    Having read about frozen grapes on here, I decided to give them a go and stuck a bunch in the freezer.

    OMG They are DELICIOUS! Just like little ice lolly treats

    (be careful if you've got sensitive teeth though - caught me out with the first one)

    Just thought I'd share as a nice cool treat for summer :flirt2:

    Doesn't sound like a crazy question to me - I want to know to.

    I think I'll be putting some in the freezer at work when we go back to school. That's where I usually cave in to biscuits etc, so at least they'll be there to see me through the dark days!

    Strawberries and raspberries work well too! I got three bags of frozen raspberrries for £5 in Sainsbury's the other day. I eat the on their own, or in yogurts - they make it taste like ice cream! :)

    yup, a fave of mine, too. And green, rad and black ones all taste totally differnt and SCRUMMY when frozen!
    I have seen packs of frozen grapes in Tescos, which are cheaper than buying fresh, but they has a strange texture and were so sticky I'm convinced there was added sugar in them?
    I get through tons of frozen raspberries too, and like frozen 'nanas although haven't perfected the 'right' time to resure them from the freezer, before being tooth-break-able!

    They've never frozen solid for me, more like a fruit ice lolly kind of texture. So biteable anyway.

    I'd thought of doing this a long time ago but never got round to it. I froze lots of bananas as they were going to go off otherwise but they didnt taste that nice frozen. However, berries are nice as is pineapple!!

    I was lucky 2 weeks ago as I went to Tesco on Easter Eve lol and they were reducing everything to 3p-10p and there were a lot of the mini snack packs of fruit that normally cost stupid amounts so I bought nearly all of them and shoved them in the freezer for the kids to take for break time. Well I stole the pineapple "lollies" and theyre amazing frozen!

    I will DEFO be doing the grapes though, thanks for the reminder x
