Food: People Are Making "CANDY GRAPES" Using Jell-O Mix—and It's the Perfect Summer Snack

Bacon and Hot Dog Prices Are About to Spike, Experts Say

  Bacon and Hot Dog Prices Are About to Spike, Experts Say Experts say bacon and hot dog prices will stay high through the summer, since demand will go up while supply is down.Sales, as well as the price of meat, went up last year as more Americans found themselves suddenly cooking dinner at home, and supply chains were upended. Experts told Business Insider that the "after-effects of last year's disruption" will keep both bacon and hot dog prices high through the summer as demand increases amid a low supply. During these disruptions, consumers are also likely to see "fewer discounts." Separately, Bloomberg reports that farmers are now paying 30% more to feed their herds.

Frozen Grapes with Jell-O Recipe

First up, this sweet and refreshing summer snack only requires two ingredients. It's that simple!

You could definitely use red grapes or another variety if you prefer—maybe even cotton candy grapes if you can find them.

Start by washing your grapes and put them in a gallon bag. According to TikTok user @courty_lea, there's no need to dry the water off because the liquid is what helps the Jell-O powder stick to the grapes. Sprinkle the box of Jell-O powder into the bag, zip it up and shake, shake, shake.

Once your grapes are fully covered with the mix, put them in the freezer to pull out and enjoy when the heat of the day hits!
