Recent experiments using Walmart’s Great Value ice cream sandwich bars show that, even after 12 hours of hanging out in the sun, the snack will not melt away like it should. Christie Watson, of Cincinnati, was first to report this incident when she accidentally forgot her ice cream on her porch only to return the next day and find it looking like the one on the box.
“I thought that’s quite weird,” Watson reports to WCPO 9. “So I looked at the box, and it doesn’t say artificial ice cream. It says ice cream.” If there is an additive it is not likely that they would put it in the front of the box.
Although ice cream isn’t exactly breaking news, whatever they’re putting in your snacks could very well become front page worthy.
WCPO 9 contacted Walmart which released the following statement to the news organization:
Ice cream melts based on the ingredients including cream. Ice cream with more cream will generally melt at a slower rate, which is the case with our Great Value ice cream sandwiches.
Soon after Walmart makes a further comment saying “Our sandwiches contain less, and are more affordable”
Contains less of what? Their earlier statement blames more cream causes the snack to stay frozen but now they’re claiming the sandwiches contain less?
Clearly something is not being admitted so you be the judge.
