Debunking China's melt-proof ice cream

Reporters from Japan went to China to investigate the alleged invention of ice cream that doesn't melt.

The infamous treat made by Nestle China and known simply as 'Banana' can be found at most shops around the country. Filming his efforts on camera, one journalist purchased the bright yellow treat and left it sitting in the sun for three hours. The lolly is comprised of a vanilla ice cream core surrounded by a thick gelatinous substance.

Despite being left in the heat for so long the lolly surprisingly showed no signs of melting. Believing that food boffins had indeed created the impossible the journalist set about tucking in only to find that while the outside was intact, the inside was now a mess of melted liquid ice cream.

Back to the drawing board guys.

"Has science finally come through for us? Has someone finally found a way to make ice cream that won't melt, no matter the heat?."

This reminds me of those icecream/popsicle things that are like a Magnum/insert various chocolate coated icecream on a stick, but instead of cocolate it has a layer of fruit sorbet or something. But, yeah the jelly layer sounds ALOT less appitizing than fruit sorbet.

I thought they would wait for someone else to perfect it then just reproduce it cheaper.

Isn't Nestle China technically a Swiss company? And if someone made a gummi bear filled with vanilla ice cream I'd probably be willing to try it. Not sure what he difference is here. It's even marketed as a product to peel and eat like a banana, making eating the outside completely voluntary.

I'd love to see people's reactions to this is if an American company produced and marketed it in America. I strongly suspect that alot of the people complaining about how bad an idea it is, and how it's likely full of plastics would suddenly adopt a much more sympathetic stance.
