Reese Witherspoon Responds to Fans Concerned She’s Eating Snow: “You Only Live Once”

Reese Witherspoon is going to have fun in the snow this winter, no matter what fans have to say.

The Morning Show actress-producer took to TikTok on Friday to share a video of her making what she called a “snow salt Chococinno.” In the footage, she scoops up snow into a coffee mug from what appeared to have accumulated on a car and then adds salted caramel syrup, chocolate syrup and cold brew on top.

“OK, so we’ve had a ton of snow over the past few days. We decided to make a recipe,” she said in a voiceover. “Oh my gosh, it’s so good!”

But after she posted the video, some fans quickly took to her comment section to express concern about whether snow is safe to eat. One person wrote, “No no no.. snow is not made to ear.. u can get seriously sick,” while someone else said, “Fallen snow can be very dirty from the air and wind but who cares. You only live once. I remember eating snow as a kid.”

And well, Witherspoon is deciding to live by the motto: “You only live once.”

In a follow-up video, the Your Place or Mine actress said, “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. It was so good (Laughs).”

On Saturday, she continued to defend her frosty treat, adding in another clip, “OK, talking about the snow not being filtered, I didn’t grow up drinking filtered water. We drank out of the tap water. We actually put our mouths on the tap and then sometimes like in the summer, when it was hot, we drank out of the hose, like, we put our mouth on the hose, growing up.”

“Maybe that’s why I’m like this,” Witherspoon quipped. “So what you’re saying to me is I have to filter the snow before I eat it? I just can’t. Filtered snow. I don’t know how to do that.”
