Kids Are Loving These Frozen Mandarins

Need some healthy snack inspiration for your kids? This frozen mandarin hack trending on TikTok might be the perfect treat!

According to TikTokers, mandarins taste just like sorbet when they’re frozen. Nicole Modic was one of the first to post this trendy new food hack on the site, and, at this writing, she’s garnered over 83,000 likes.

That’s likely because making these for your kids requires basically no effort at all. As shown in Modic’s video below, all you have to do is place a few mandarins in a plastic Ziploc bag, then freeze them overnight.

Remove them from the bag a few hours before your kids (or you) want to eat them, otherwise, it’ll be like biting into a rock-hard Popsicle. Peel as usual, and the fruit should taste like travel-friendly sorbet.
