There are two built-in ways:

DECLARE @Text NVARCHAR(255) = N'1,2,<td>test</td>,4';

-- SQL Server 2016
SELECT	SS.*
FROM	STRING_SPLIT(@Text, ',') SS;

-- Before
WITH ToXml AS
	(
		SELECT	CAST(('<td><![CDATA[' + REPLACE(@Text, ',', ']]></td><td><![CDATA[') + ']]></td>') AS XML) AS XmlData
	)
	SELECT	td.value('.', 'NVARCHAR(255)') AS [value]
	FROM	ToXml
		CROSS APPLY	XmlData.nodes('td') A ( td );

The XML method is not optimal, but for normal purposes fast enough.

try this.
DECLARE  @s VARCHAR(100)

SELECT @s = 'Apples,Oranges,Mangoes,Grapes';

WITH cte
     AS (SELECT ROW_NUMBER()
                  OVER(ORDER BY p1.NUMBER) AS sr,
                NUMBER
         FROM   MASTER..spt_values p1
         WHERE  p1.TYPE = 'p'
                AND p1.NUMBER BETWEEN 1 AND LEN(@s) + 2
                AND SUBSTRING(',' + @s + ',',p1.NUMBER,1) = ',')
SELECT SUBSTRING(' ' + @s,a.NUMBER + 1,b.NUMBER - a.NUMBER - 1) AS Fruit
FROM   cte a
       INNER JOIN cte b
         ON b.sr = a.sr + 1

/*
Fruit
Apples
Oranges
Mangoes
Grapes
*/
