In the San Francisco bay area, people have been going cray-cray for CREAM, an ice cream sandwich joint that has some of the most badass selection out there. However, not even CREAM can hold a candle to the Bentonville, Arkansas based mega corporate consortium Wal-Mart who has seemingly looked science in the face slapped it with an open palm. A Cincinnati women has confirmed that ice cream sandwiches from Wal-Mart, simply do not melt. Like ever.
The women’s son left an ice cream sandwich outside in the 80 degree heat for 24 hours and nothing seems to have happened to the sandwich. In fact… it was largely still intact. WCPO Channel 9 in Cincinnati later confirmed this worldly miracle when they repeated the same experiment, using a Klondike bar and a carton of Haagen-Daaz ice cream as barometers. After 30 minutes, the Wal-Mart ice cream sandwich remained whole, the Klondike bar sorta melted, whereas the Haagen-Daaz turned into a puddle.
While I’m not one of those people who only eat organic/gluten free/healthy type of foods, even I’m a bit creeped out by this On the flip side, knowing that ice cream sandwiches are fake, I’ll probably eat less of it. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll actually hit my weight loss goals now…
