Ice cream sandwiches don't melt anymore

Obviously there is an evil conspiracy afoot.

A mom of two young children is wondering: What's in ice cream sandwiches these days?

Christie Watson's kids love eating ice cream. But one recent morning, she saw an uneaten ice cream sandwich sitting on her patio table. When she looked closer, she couldn't believe what she was seeing.

"I noticed that my son had left his ice cream sandwich outside," she said, "and I was wondering 'why is there still ice cream in there?'"

The Walmart Great Value sandwich had barely melted 12 hours later....even though it was an 80 degree morning.

"I thought that's quite weird," she said. "So I looked at the box, and it doesn't say artificial ice cream. It says ice cream."

...

Watson says she grabbed a second sandwich and left that out overnight, and ended up with the same result.

"Monday I came out and looked at it," she said, "and there was still ice cream there. So I thought to myself: what am I feeding to my children?"
Garbage, basically. Try some nice GMO fruits and vegetables.

It's how they keep the price down. Why do you want to deny poor American children the right to enjoy ice cream? WHY DO YOU HATE AMERICA'S CHILDREN???

ive actually sort of noticed how the cheap shit is basically like a cold goo versus a frozen cream, the goo just gets a bit less solid when it gets warmer

Growing up in South Memphis, we had a little corner soft serve shack called "Freezeway". Freezeway made you fresh ice cream sandwiches taking scalloped edge round chocolate cookies, pouring soft serve on them, then mashing it down with a second cookie.

Used to get the same thing from an ice cream stand near the city pool. Dad used to send us down to buy bags of 'em in the summer, and take a note to the grocer's on your way back for a pack of Camels.

I remember "no drip Good Humor" from long long ago.

Whatever other garbage may be in the ice cream sandwich, the one that explains the subject line is -- gelatine.

And it will melt if you get the whole thing warm enough.

You'll laugh, but I had to google it to see what "ice cream sandwicches" were. Best approximation, meringue (with ice cream inside):

And gelatin… you'll never know what rotten pieces of dead animals were used to make that. Yumm… :(

Ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate cookies.

Some hipsters ice cream joint near me tried it baking brownies, then flattening them and layer real ice cream between those.
