This "Candy Grape" Food Hack Is Perfect For Our Scorching Summer

Are you looking for something sweet, juicy, and very fruity to cool you down this summer?

The sun has well and truly hit our shores - and long may it last! After months of us needing to remain indoors, it's wonderful to know that nature is on our side as we begin to socialise a little bit more than we've been used to this past year and a half. We've stumbled upon an easy-peasy food hack, Candy Grape, which we think you'll steal for when you and the family need some cooling down this summer.

To create this simple food hack, all you need is a bunch of grapes, some jelly powder, a closable sandwich bag, and a freezer. It's so simple you could even make an activity out of it for you and your little ones on a hot summer's morning.

What you need to do is wash your grapes (white or red, whichever you prefer) with water and fill up a large sandwich bag with the washed fruit; don't dry the grapes as you'll need them to be wet. Next, pour in a sachet of your favourite flavour of jelly powder on top of the grapes, and then seal the bag. Then give the bag a good shake until the fruit is covered in the sweet mixture.

Finally, all you have to do is pop the bag into the freezer, wait an hour, and there you have it - a cool, sweet treat that is sure to hit the spot.

The Candy Grape food hack is currently doing the rounds on TikTok, and here's a quick walk-through demonstration from social media user courty_lea.
