Do Walmart’s Ice Cream Sandwiches Still NOT Melt?

Walmart's Great Value Ice Cream Sandwiches
CJ/TSM Utica

It’s National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. So we decided to put the old “Walmart Ice Cream Sandwiches Won’t Melt” theory to the test.

Several years ago, it was discovered that the Walmart Real Value brand ice cream sandwiches take a really long time to melt, even when left out in the heat and the sun for hours. According to Snopes.com, a Cincinnati TV station conducted the now famous “melting test” in July 2014, which first showed this phenomenon. At that time a Walmart representative claimed it was because of the brand’s higher cream content. Snopes.com also noted that Consumer Reports suggested other FDA approved chemical stabilizers were being added to slow down melting.

We discovered that in less than an hour this ice cream sandwich was almost completely melted. Why was that? Take another look at the label – “Low Fat… Artificially Flavored… No Sugar Added”. We’re not scientists but we’re guessing that might have something to do with why our test failed. Anyway, these ice cream sandwiches might be just the ticket for diabetics. While they’re still frozen that is.
