Christie Watson told the Cincinnati news station WCPO that her son left a Walmart ice cream sandwich outside for 12 hours. Despite it being 80 degrees, the ice cream sandwich never fully melted.

"I thought it quite weird so I looked at the box and it doesn't say artificial ice cream," Watson told WCPO. "So I thought to myself, what am I feeding my children?"

The news station decided to conduct an ice cream melting experiment. A Walmart Great Value ice cream sandwich, a Klondike Bar ice cream sandwich and a cup of Haagen-Dazs were all left out in the sun for 30 minutes. The Walmart sandwich melted the least, while the Klondike sandwich was about two-thirds melted, and the Haagen-Dazs ice cream melted completely.

At what point - with the increasing addition of 'stabilisers', etc - does ice cream stop being ice cream and become 'ice cream substitute'?

I watched something on TV, I think it was 'watchdog' where they investigated supermarket ice cream. One brand, called 'soft scoop' was a mix of stabilisers flavourings etc, and AIR... the air literally doubles its size, but...they cannot call it 'ice cream' because it isn't...its just 'Soft Scoop',

My personal advice (and this is from an old person with good blood pressure/cholesterol levels) don't eat any of this artificial "food". It's not really food, it's bad (really bad) for you. Don't  go near it...ever. Obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, cancer, inflammatory disease of the bowels....enough said.

To all you Walmart Shoppers out there. If Walmart can sell you synthetic ice-cream and save a few cents, they will do it. This is a mutli-billion dollar monster that knowingly sells products made from under-age kids being forced into labor. So, if you think they give two ****s about feeding your kid chemically engineered ice-cream, they don't.

Yeh I read that too before posting. When the original Italians mixed egg yolks with milk, cream and sugar and froze it, that to me is ice cream. Not as described by toast in post #5

Yes, the foam is a bunch of tiny bubbles that will hold their form until you pop them.

The ice cream sandwich in question will definitely yield easily if you press down on it while a frozen one won't yield so easily.

Some states require the term "soft serve" while others don't. In a frozen food product, they can label it ice cream if it contains a certain percentage of milk fat. It's not just Walmart - it's every store that sells these kinds of ice cream sandwiches.

Pretty much all the "ice cream" at fast food stores - including Dairy Queen et al. is actually this foam stuff and is made from powder and water added to and mixed in the "ice cream" making machine that dispenses it.

I don't buy anything that is made from milk fat if it says no fat.  I don't eat cheese that sits on a shelf instead of in the fridge.  Such as ice cream, fat free cream fat free pudding.

I am a Mormon.  If I don't use Mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other Mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the Mormon faith. Thanks for caring and if you don't peace be with you.

All ice cream has air incorporated into it, it's called overrun. Most ice cream has an overrun of 100% meaning that the air makes up 50 % of the ice cream volume. If a lower amount of air is applied, the resulting ice cream will be dense and heavy, if a higher amount is used the texture will be lighter and creamier.

Also all ice creams have stabilizers. Egg yolks were used in the past and are still used today, but now we use others as well, the only difference from egg yolks is that they increase shelf life. People just don't understand the chemistry behind what is happening, they hear a weird name and freak out thinking they eating something bad without even knowing what it is.
