Freezer Fetish

I have one. More specifically, I love to eat snack foods just out of the freezer. They just seem crisper and more flavorful. In fact, I just enjoyed some fresh salsa with some good, cold tortilla chips. Anyone else share this predilection, or like any other not-usually-frozen foods?

  1. Yes!!! I love eating frozen fruit (probably not that weird), but I also love frozen veggies (especially peas or corn) as well as tator tots. I haven't ever put tortilla chips in the freezer, but I think I'd love it.
    Also, oranges must be ice cold (but not frozen).

      When my daughter was little she starting eating the frozen veggies- I thought it was that she was teething and it felt good on her gums, but 10 years later she still likes the veggies frozen!

    2. chocolate. nuts, especially alternating with raisins.

      I used to pour my milk over ice cubes to make it extra extra cold.

        I like my milk icy cold too. So I put the milk and a glass in the freezer for about 10 minutes before pouring. No watered-down milk that way.

      2. I second the suggestions in the above posts.

        In the veggies section, I'd like to add stir-fry mix (esp. water chestnuts and sugar snap peas) and french fries.

        In the snacks category, I'm adding pudding, yogurt, and various baked goods.

          I have always loved to snack on frozen cookies and cakes. Snacking on frozen fruit in the summer is a great idea, as you get both a sweet snack and the cooling effect when the temp is in the 80-90's.

          I thought that that everyone didn't put ice cubes in their milk. My daughter prefers it that way, but we would get very strange looks in restaurants when we asked that milk would be served this way.

          PS, I have never tried to freeze yogurt or puddings.

        2. There are many liquid & semi liquid things I like cold/frozen (I second the yogurt in the freezer). I must say, however, the only thing I particulary like food wise frozen is sliced pepperoni.

          I used to enjoy many more things frozen, but I've come around to the benifits of room temperature snacks- I think fruits and veggies at room temperature are just more fragrant, more savory.

          Maybe it's time to start browsing the freezer more often...

          1. you people are wierd. and you probably all have iron deficiencies, too... my wife eats frozen peas.

              I only like fresh English peas, but I always keep a bag of frozen peas in the house. They are great to have as a replacement for ice packs for athletic injuries. They mold to the body part in question, and they can be refrozen innumerable times.
