Walmart Ice Cream Sandwich Melt Test: By now you have probably seen the video of the Great Value ice cream sandwich that never melted. One of our followers asked us to try it out.
This all came about several weeks back when a young boy from Cincinnati accidentally left a Walmart Great Value ice cream sandwich outside. His mother found it 12 hours later and was shocked to find that even on an 80-degree day, the ice cream hadn’t melted.
Dan Collins of KIKN 100.5 in Sioux Falls heard about the non-melting Walmart Ice Cream Sandwich and put it to the test. Watch the video below.
With the sun shining bright we thought today would be a great day. We actually bought 2 kinds: Great Value and Kemps. We gave the test just a little under two hours.
From the other reviews that we have read, it didn’t come as a suprise that the Kemps melted first. According to the FDA, it’s safe to eat ice cream with corn syrup and those “gums.” We personally wouldn’t recommend eating after letting it sit out in the sun for a few hours.
