People Are Freezing Cereal As It Tastes Better
Please, take a moment to clear a space in your freezer compartment for the phenomenon that is... frozen cereal.
With hella cold and extra crunchy results, this simple cereal hack makes for a cooling summer brekkie and quickly went viral on social media.
As you might have guessed, the idea is to fill a bowl with your go-to cereal of choice and pop it in the freezer compartment to chill.
Once suitably cooled, remove your portion of cereal from the freezer and fill with milk.
Apparently, it's a taste sensation. The frosted cereal is oh-so-crisp and cool, while the freezer-fresh bowl keeps the milk ice cold.
Mmm. Sounds pretty delicious, right?
Cereal lover Ace (@acebking) trialled the trend on TikTok in a how-to video that at the time of writing has clocked up a whopping 1.6 million likes.
"My favorite food is cereal, so i had to try this!! [sic]" Ace captioned the video.
Following the hack's simple steps, the cereal fanatic bunged his Cheerios - which seem to be the favourite cereal for this particular trend - away for a deep freeze.
He was clearly a big fan of the final taste too, exclaiming "oh yeah!!" as he enthusiastically shovelled spoonfuls into his mouth.
We can feel the brain freeze just by looking at Ace's face - but apparently, it's more than worth it.
Other TikTokers have followed suit:
And frozen cereal isn't the only cereal-based trend sweeping our social feeds.
Earlier this month, Tyla brought you the recipe for the irresistibly cute Insta-craze that is glazed mini doughnut cereal.
Yep, that's dinky (usually ring-shaped) donuts topped with high-shine icing and colourful sprinkles, served in a bowl.
The milk part is, of course, optional - we'll take an ice-cold glass of the stuff on the side to save getting these spongey creations getting all soggy, please and thanks.

These are super easy to make and healthier than fried ones! Once again, I didn't add milk because I carefully made two dozen little donuts and didn't want to ruin them - they came out so spongey and cute. :sparkles:Ingredients: •1 cup of flour •1/3 cup of sugar •1 egg •1/2 tsp of salt •2 tbsp of butter •1/3 cup + 1 1/2 tbsp of milk •1 tbsp of baking powder •1 tbsp of vanilla extract :sparkles:Recipe (by @aseasyasapplepie) Pre-heat your oven to 350° F. Add all of your ingredients to a mixer starting with your dry ones and mix until fully incorporated. Add dough to a piping bag or ziplock and pipe onto a donut mold. Bake for 8 minutes. Dip the donuts in the glaze while they are still warm and top with sprinkles. Let cool down for 30 minutes and enjoy! . . . . . - #cereal #pancakecereal #donuts #donut #sprinkles #donas #frosting #desserts #bigbiteszn #socialdistancing #recipe #recipevideo #recipeoftheday #easyrecipes #recipes #recetas #foodvideo #buzzfeast #tastingtable #huffposttaste #thefeedfeed #foodcoma #wshh #eattheworld #cheatday #sugarrush #teampixel
