Walmart Ice Cream Is Melt Proof
So, there's been a lot of buzz around the fact that Walmart ice cream apparently doesn't melt.
I know it sounds absurd. Like, what kind of ice cream doesn't melt? Newsday.com is reporting that a woman in Cincinnati, though, accidentally figured out that Walmart's "Great Value" brand ice cream is melt proof.
Since then the ice cream has been tested on youtube and it definitely does not melt. Apparently it has to do with the fact that Walmart's ice cream has more cream in it. The more cream the ice cream has in it, the slower it melts. The ice cream also includes corn syrup, guar gum, carob bean gum and cellulose gum. All of these act as stabilizers to help it keep its shape.
I don't know how I feel about this ice cream that doesn't melt. It just doesn't seem natural to eat ice cream that doesn't melt! I think it's safe to say I'll be skipping out on this 'great value.'
