Imagine a world where ice cream doesn’t melt? Some might find this to be an incredible dream. Others however might be a bit more suspicious and even worried about what they are putting into their mouths. That’s exactly what happened to one family in Australia. It’s a story that got a lot of attention on social media over the past couple of days. Froyo Gelato Supplies decided to dig a little deeper into this story and find out what’s going on.
The Invincible Ice Cream Sandwich
As we mentioned this story takes place in Australia. The story is a rather simple one. A grandmother dropped an ice cream sandwich in her yard. Instead of cleaning up her mess she instead figured that Mother Nature would take care of her problem and melt her worries and ice cream sandwich away. The grandmother was shocked to learn that after a couple of days her ice cream sandwich refused to melt. But this sweet ol’ granny isn’t the first to notice this problem. A mother in Cincinnati also experienced the same situation when she found her Walmart ice cream sandwich un-melted after it was left outside for over 12 hours. So what could possibly be causing this ice cream to stay intact? According to the ice cream makers the answer is cream.
“Ice cream with more cream will generally melt at a slower rate” replied the spokesperson. According to Snopes some companies also use guar gum and other ingredients to prevent freezer burn and slow down how quickly products melt. This makes sense when you think about it. Have you ever purchased a snow cone at a local ice cream parlor? As soon as you go outside with it, it begins to melt right away. Now think about the last time you ate a cone that came out of a box at your local grocery store. It doesn’t melt nearly as much.
Ice Cream Science
Perhaps someday melted ice cream will be a thing of the past. Did you know that Japanese scientists are working to create such a solution? It’s due to a strawberry extract which stops the water and oil found in frozen desserts from separating so quickly (Click Here To Learn More). A Japanese journalist who reported on the original story and tried the ice cream confirmed that the ice cream held its original shape after five minutes in the warm sun and still tasted cool.
So what do you think about this ice cream that refused to melt? Are you concerned about how ice cream is being made? Or perhaps you simply want a great tasting treat and don’t want to be concerned about such things. Regardless of your feelings we believe that anyone with an ice cream in hand is a winner.
