Want some ice cream? =o)


An ice cream sandwich is left out in the sun for over an hour and doesn't melt.

They probably don't melt because they have polysorbates and glycerides in them.

These ingredients are designed to hold particles in an emulsified state.. That is, a homogeneous mix that remains stable.


You might ask, "how the heck does he know this?".. Well, I'm no chemist but I've done a lot of work in the biodiesel industry where we turn vegetable oils and animal fats into diesel fuel.
Along the way, I picked up a rudimentary understanding of the chemistry behind glycerine molecules and how various industries use them. (I can make great home made soap!)...

Want my advice about foods?
1. Eat nothing that contains anything "hydrogenated" in the ingredients list... You would do less damage to your body smoking a cigarette than eating hydrogenated anything.
2. Eat nothing that contains High Fructose Corn Syrup....
3. Eat nothing that contains artificial anything in the ingredients list.

Ya gotta love YouTube.....

It's the internet, it has to be true.

Look at the shadows. I would have expected the shadows to move a lot more than they did.

Move the video cursor...look at the shadow of the table...then jump to the end and compare....also notice the ice cream sandwich is not looking nearly as firm as it was...lot of bulging going on...and why did the remove the 'reference' ice cream?

And...if you were to chill those sandwich's down with dry ice....it would take a lot more time for them to melt.

Someone has an agenda.

I hear them talking about this on NPR the other morning. When asked about it, a Wallmart spokesman said something like " our ice cream is extra creamy, and cream takes longer to melt"

The reporter went on to talk about the preservatives in the ice cream that could be slowing melting.

Chemistry is an amazing thing. Whether this particular video is true or not (you could always spend 2 dollars and prove it yourself), I have no doubt it's possible. And not every modification we make to food is the end of the world. It's cheap junk food. You know it's not great for you, but it has very little to do with the fact that they found a way to make it not melt. There are plenty of "natural" ways you could mix ice cream with something that doesn't melt and create a similar effect if you really wanted to. It just wouldn't be sold at WalMart for 1.99.

I noticed when I've melted chocolate chips in the microwave that they don't lose their shape either, until they are stirred. It was either the Tollhouse brand or Ghirardelli - maybe both.

The guy should have tested some name brand ice cream sandwiches along side the WalMart brand. That way it wouldn't look like he's trying to slam Wmart, which he may or may not be doing. It would have made sense to do it that way.

Mountain House makes freeze-dried ice cream sandwiches that don't need any refrigeration. I bought one at a sporting goods store, but haven't had the nerve to try it yet. Then there are the ice cream dots that you can find at a carnival. They look like little foam dots. Haven't tried those yet either.

Real dippin dots is made flash freezing Ice cream mix in liquid nitrogen.
The product then has to be stored at -40c...

Needless to say you wont find a grocery store with freezers that good. Also if you do see them in a small display freezer, they arent like the real thing from an actual Dippin Dots shop.
