Walmart's Great Value Ice Cream Sandwiches DON'T MELT.




Article:

....It is “real ice cream”; it just has more cream, Walmart spokesman Danit Marquardt explained to Newsday.
"Ice cream melts based on the ingredients including cream,” Marquardt said. “Ice cream with more cream will generally melt at a slower rate, which is the case with our Great Value ice cream sandwiches.”
Walmart’s ice cream sandwiches contain the ingredients corn syrup, guar gum, carob bean gum and cellulose gum, which act as stabilizers to help the ice cream keep its shape, according to a study by the Department of Food Science and Technology at Ohio State University.
“If it melts, it’s a problem and people complain. If it doesn't melt, it’s also a problem and people complain. You can't win with some people,” one YouTube user commented on Collins’ video

2. Could it be something like plaque filled arteries?

Could it be compounds like these:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1767204/

Conclusions: Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension is associated with atherosclerotic plaques with glycophorin-rich pultaceous cores, and plexogenic pulmonary hypertension with fibrous plaques. Thromboembolic material thus plays a critical role in the formation of pultaceous cores, of which erythrocyte membrane derived glycophorin is a major component.

Having cooked the heart of a lawful deer kill, plaque can even be oven cooked without completely degrading.

3. Question: What is the shelf life?

Answer: That depends on what the shelf is made of.

8. This is ridiculous...

“If it melts, it’s a problem and people complain..."


What "people" complain about their ice cream melting? I just can't see myself walking into my local grocery store, asking to speak to the manager, and saying, "I want my money back! This ice cream you sold me melted when I left it out in the 80-degree heat and sun for an hour!"

I'm sure she'd say, "Oh, I'm so sorry! Of course, let me just give you a full refund right away! I'll just have to have a little chat with that ice cream manufacturer. How dare they try to pass off ice cream that melts!

10. I gotta run right down and get me some.

Obviously this is a product which is perfect for my emergency food supply or when the power goes out, what with the long shelf life and all.

- Well, the FDA says it's all right. So there's the first clue where to look. Those corrupt bastards will approve almost anything if the price is right.

Christie Watson’s child had left a Walmart Great Value ice cream sandwich outside on a hot morning and it appeared as though it didn’t melt. It barely looked melted at all after 12 hours. She looked at the box and says it said that it contained ice cream, not artificial ice cream, so she tested it over night. She said, “Monday, I came out and looked at it and there was still ice cream there. So I thought to myself: what am I feeding to my children?”

After hearing the mother’s claims, the media decided to do a test as well. That test involved leaving ice cream products outside in the hot sun for a half of an hour. The products tested included regular Haagen Daz ice cream, a Klondike Bar, and of course, a Great Value ice cream sandwich from Walmart.

The Haagen Daz melted right away. Of course, Haagen Daz vanilla ice cream contains only cream, skim milk, sugar, egg yolks and vanilla extract. The Klondike Bar melted a little. It contains some ingredients similar to Walmart’s Great Value ice cream. The media reported that the Great Value ice cream sandwich from Walmart didn’t appear melted much at all. The Great Value ice cream remained solid. The reporter contacted Walmart, but representatives didn’t want to comment. The media testers concluded that ingredients designed to keep the Walmart ice cream sandwiches cheaper may be the culprits.

According to Walmart’s website, the ice cream in a Great Value ice cream sandwich contains: Milk, Cream, Buttermilk, Sugar, Whey, Corn Syrup, Contains 1% Or Less of Mono-And Diglycerides, Vanilla Extract, Guar Gum, Calcium Sulfate, Carob Bean Gum, Cellulose Gum, Carrageenan, Artificial Flavor, and Annatto For Color.

ABC News said that the ingredient list is all deemed safe by the FDA, so the product’s apparent lack of melting should be of no consequence. (Yeah, right)
