Reese Witherspoon got some backlash after sharing a video making a “snow salt chococinno” using snow from her backyard.

In the clip, she uses a coffee mug to scoop up snow that had piled on top of a car, and adds chocolate syrup, salted caramel syrup, and cold brew.

Fans were quick to comment that snow can be dirty, and can make you seriously ill.

But Reese isn’t worried, quote, “OK, so we’re kind of in a category of ‘You only live once’ and it snows maybe once a year here.  I don’t know!  Also, I want to say something: It was delicious . . .

“OK, talking about the snow not being filtered, I didn’t grow up drinking filtered water . . . Maybe that’s why I’m like this.  So what you’re saying to me is I have to filter the snow before I eat it?  I just can’t.  Filtered snow.”


(And seriously, who didn’t grow up eating snow?)
