The food we eat has changed more in the past few decades that at any point in human history, and one mother was reminded of that fact loud in clear recently in Cincinnati after discovering one of her son’s ice cream sandwiches that had been left outside.
Christie Watson of Western Hills, Ohio found the Wal-Mart brand confection outside on an 80-degree day and was stunned to find out that it had not melted much at all despite being left out on her patio in the heat.
She left a second sandwich out overnight and got the same result, she told WPCO-Cincinnati TV.
In total, the ice cream sandwich had been left out 12 hours without melting, she said.
Watson said she looked at the box and noticed that it didn’t say that it was artificial ice cream, but the ingredients list confirmed that it had plenty of questionable artificial ingredients inside, as well as genetically modified ingredients like high fructose corn syrup (which is often used to extend shelf life and of course as a sweetener), soybean oil and more.
Wal-Mart responded to the report, which can be seen below, by saying that their ice cream contains less buttermilk, causing the results.
But the mother says she misses the good old days when ice cream was real and actually melted in the sun like you would expect.
Is there something really wrong with Wal-Mart ice cream sandwiches, and what happens when other brands are put to the test? Check out the video below for more:
