Reese Witherspoon sends fans into a frenzy after eating snow off her car as winter treat: 'It's dirty.' Yuck!'

Reese Witherspoon has sent fans into a frenzy after she decided to use the snowy weather to her advantage and incorporate it into a sweet treat.

During a visit to Tik Tok on Thursday, the 47-year-old actress shared her recipe for a winter drink titled “Snow Salt Chococinno.”

In the “The Big Little Lies” clip, the star first scrapes snow off her car with two cups before covering the snow with salted caramel and chocolate syrup.

She explained: “We've been getting a lot of snow the last few days so we decided to make a recipe.”

“First we scooped the snow into cups and added salted caramel syrup and some chocolate syrup because we like the taste together.”

Reese then added some cold brew to achieve a “yummy coffee flavor” before diving into her creation.

Reese ate spoonfuls of snow and proudly proclaimed, “Oh my God, this is so good,” before naming it “Snow Salt Chococinno.”

But fans didn't seem to recognize the delicious side of the recipe, instead expressing concern about the star eating dirty snow.

One asked, “Isn't snow dirty?” while another suggested, “What if birds pooped in that snow?”

Someone else commented: “Snow is dirty.” Yuck.” and another said: “I love you but no thanks. The snow is so dirty and full of bacteria.”

Another wrote: “I thought eating snow was dangerous for our health,” and another added: “It's dirty, that's a fact… Rain isn't clean either…”

Another wrote, “Am I the only one worried she shoveled it out of her car,” to which Reese herself replied, “It was the grill but is that bad???”

Another then replied: “I was concerned about the cleanliness.”

Another added: “The fallen snow can be very dirty from the air and wind but who cares?” You only live once. I remember eating snow as a child.

Replying to that comment in a separate Tik Tok, Reese laughed: “We're kind of in the category where you only live once and it snows here maybe once a year.”

“Also, I want to say something, it was delicious,” she added with a laugh, “It was so good.”

But it didn't stop there, as Reese shared another Tik Tok to prove that her snow was clean.

As one viewer suggested: “Can you put snow in a clear cup and let it melt?” “I just want to see if it’s safe to eat first,” Reese decided to do just that.

She held up a clear cup of water and said, “There are so many people here who say snow is dirty, so we got snow out of the back yard and put it in the microwave and it's clear.”

Responding to a specific anti-snow comment on a separate Tik Tok, Reese laughed:

Another wrote: “Rainwater is also clear,” but it is full of environmental toxins. Rain and snow are essentially kidneys for the air.'

A third chimed: 'The upper snow is clean. The lower snow cleans the air and is dirty.'

In an interview with Fox Weather in February 2023, Dr. Laura Martin, an assistant professor at the Ohio State University College of Medicine, asked whether snow is really safe to eat.

While yellow snow is known to be bad, Dr. Martin said that freshly fallen snow is actually the least safe to eat because it can collect chemical pollutants from the air as it falls.

She also added that fallen snow lying on the ground is also not safe for consumption as it can mix with potential toxins such as dirt, animal waste, fertilizers or pesticides. The safest snow to consume is therefore the upper layers of fallen snow furthest from the ground.
