People On TikTok Are Freezing Honey For A Snack And Now I'm Obsessed

·2 min read

If nothing else, I'm really good at hopping on a bandwagon. When I see new recipes and hacks making their rounds on TikTok, I become so overwhelmed with intrigue that I must try them out and sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised (other times, not so much). The latest viral TikTok food hack involved freezing honey for a sweet snack, so of course I had to see what the hype was about.

But because I love you so much, dear reader, I want to always try these hacks out and give you the most realistic results possible. So I took it upon myself to make a little experiment out of this. If you can freeze honey for a taste of something sweet, why not freeze other natural sweeteners too?

I put it to the test and froze a couple dollops of honey, maple syrup, and agave to see which one came out best. Although I only popped them in the freezer for about four hours, I'm sure if they spent more time the results would be a bit better. Overall, what I did notice was that honey froze quicker than the other two, so if you try this out yourself leave agave and maple syrup in the freezer a bit longer.

As far as taste, I absolutely understand why the people on the internet have been freezing their honey. It cools into little bite-sized pieces of congealed honey which makes it chewy and super sweet, a combo hard to accomplish in many actual dishes. I would almost liken it to the texture of fudge but without the overt richness chocolate fudge typically comes with. What I would suggest is using a better method than freezing little dots on a baking sheet and maybe even using an ice tray or something similar to make it easier for yourself.

Final verdict: 10 out of 10. Five stars. You've got to try frozen honey, honey!
