In the video, Nickolaou reveals how icicles are formed, informing viewers that the icicles are often made of things most people wouldn’t want to eat.

“When icicles form, it’s from water that melts off of your roof and runs down the side of a building. Well, here’s the thing – you know what else is on your roof? Bird poop. A lot of it," Nickolaou says in the now viral video.

Her video has since been viewed over 12 million times, with many revealing they have made the mistake of eating icicles. Luckily, now people know to avoid this wintertime snack.
