Mother says son’s ice cream sandwich didn’t melt after 12 hours in the heat – Glenn puts the claim to the test

On Thursday, TheBlaze published an interesting report about an ice cream sandwich that seemingly could not melt. A Cincinnati mother claimed she left a Walmart-brand ice cream sandwich in her backyard over night, and she awoke the next morning to discover it had not melted. On radio this morning – in the name of science – Glenn, Pat, and Stu decided it was time for a little science experiment.

“We also have a science experiment today that we’d like to do because a mother was ‘shocked’… that her ice cream sandwich didn’t melt 12 hours in the hot sun,” Glenn explained. “She said these are Walmart ice cream sandwiches, and they don’t actually melt in the sun.”

The story got picked up by the local ABC affiliate WCPO-TV, who spoke to Christie Watson about what she experienced with the ice cream sandwiches.

“I thought that’s quite weird,” Watson told WCPO. “So I looked at the box, and it doesn’t say artificial ice cream. It says ice cream.”

Watson said she decided to try the experiment again – setting out another sandwich from the same box over night. She claims to have gotten the same result: The ice cream barely melted.

As TheBlaze reported, WCPO did its own experiment with different brands of ice cream. They discovered:

– The Haagen-Dazs melted quickly into a puddle.
– The Klondike sandwich melted to a fair extent.
– The Walmart sandwich, though it melted a bit, remained the most solid in appearance, and still looked like a sandwich.

Furthermore, the station took a look at what ingredients make up the ice cream sandwiches:

– Walmart’s ingredient list includes corn syrup, guar gum, and cellulose gum.
– Unilever’s Klondike Bars’s ingredient list is very similar to Walmart’s, with similar gums added.
– Haagen-Dazs contains just cream, milk, sugar, and eggs, and vanilla, but no corn syrup or gums of any type.

Needless to say, there are a lot of variables at play in this situation. But Glenn, Pat, and Stu decided there is no better test than the blazing Texas sun. They tried the experiment this morning with three different types of ice cream sandwiches – two from Walmart and one from Blue Bunny. It took just minutes for all three to turn into soup.

According to the Siri on Stu’s iPhone, the temperature in Dallas was 77 degrees. In direct sunlight, those sandwiches melted almost instantly.

“If you look at that, that’s a fake story,” Glenn said. “I don’t know how the TV station in Cincinnati [did it].”

“It didn’t last one hour outside,” Pat added.

      One was reading the fat free ingredients while the other (Stu) was reading the regular (full fat) ingredients. Notice how Stu’s list read “Milk, Cream, etc” while the other (Jeff’s?) list started out with “fat free milk”?

        Ice Cream sandwiches will completely melt within 30 min.
        No disputing that. Definitely do not believe the story.

        And there are no other “dishonest” things in the media outside of melting ice cream? Yeah….. Beck is HARD HITTING these days….
        Maybe he should stick to exposing his own lies of perpetuating child endangerment, Child Rape, and Child slavery in the guise of “mercy”…..
        What did this story REALLY ACCOMPLISH?? About as much as feeding the children without doing something to stop the problem of children coming across the border openly….

          Either way Mike I have a feeling you’d be against Glenn Beck. He quickly & easily disproved the Unions-backed hoax story; So you whine about something else. Surprise.

          The Anti-GMO crowd is now f***ing with our food supply. They attack GMO crops (pest resistant, providing more food, ect;) in a bizarre attempt to send us back to the 19th century food-wise. We’re not going back — at least not those of us with an IQ over 80. You go ahead and starve to death trying to grown your own food during the next drought/unseasonably cool temperatures. Rest of us will be over at the grocery store buying food.

  • Marjorie Elaine Peirce

    Does no one see the error in the story? Headlines: Ice Cream Sandwich Didn’t Melt After 12 Hours In The HEAT. Then TWICE in the story, it says the Mother left the sandwich Outside AT NIGHT!!! Ok, so what were the night time temps? What type of container was the ‘sandwich’ put into? Was there any wind, and was it a hot/warm wind or a cool wind? All of these play a huge factor into how fast any ice cream sandwich will melt. Glenn put his out directly in the sun. Huge difference over ‘NIGHT’. The other question is: What was the “Sandwich” made from? You shared what was in the Ice Cream, but not the Sandwich portion. So, this is like comparing apples to oranges. They are not the same. And do I believe the original story was a fake…. yes.

    • Anonymous

      Ok, I have no idea if this was real or fake, I will say however, just because it may have been left ‘overnight’ does NOT mean it wasn’t hot as hell. I live in the upper Midwest, and during the summer, some of the nights are damn near as hot as the daytime, when the dew points are up in the upper 60’s and 70’s. Here, it wouldn’t matter what kind of container it was in, unless it was a freezer, on some of these nights. Hell, sometimes I feel like I’M melting…LOL

        Pamndev, I do hear and understand what you are saying. Although I have spent most of my life in Oregon, I was born in Maryland and made several visits to grandparents there. In July!!! ha ha I was just basically saying that there was a couple of errors in the story its self and that not all of the factors had been revealed. Actually, we are the silly ones for even wasting our time on the story… with so much going on in the world there is most certainly better things to read and talk about than ice cream melting. ha ha Oh well…. something stupid once in awhile is good for our souls. :-)

      • Dee Conner

        I live in the same area as the woman on the news and share the same weather. This past week we had near record lows in the mid 50’s, 1 or 2 degrees from being a record. The light wind also playing part in this experiment also would need to be taken into consideration. I can see it not melting right away although 12 hours would a bit far fetched. It’s been mild with cool nights, not so sure ice cream would last that long.

      • Whispers Magic

        I live in AZ and our LOWS at night are 90+.

    • SC

      Pretty sure anything above 32 would melt within 12 hours…I did learn that much in Science (it was my least favorite subject).

      • NotAScientist

        I believe that 32 is the melting point of water, not everything. Anything you add to the water will effect its melting point. For example salt water freezes at a much lower temp, i.e. the ocean…

        • Stupid

          Water doesn’t melt….

          • Shawn Ravish

            Water melts… when it is in its sold state. What we call melting is just our term for when something reaches the temp at which it changes from a solid to a liquid. The next change would be to a gas, (what we call boiling) even after water boils, it is still water…

          • John M. Ocasio-Parra

            Water in solid state change to liquid, then to vapor, at 212 * F, not at 32, You guys need to go back to school if you believed that water change state at 32 *F.

            You need to go back to school if you think that ice isn’t water.

            It does if it is frozen. Even though we cal it ice, it is still just water in its solid state.

            Ice cream can have a melting/freezing temperature much lower due to the sugar and fat content.

      It has been rather chilly in Ohio for a summer… that could also be a factor in this situation

    • Nana Rominger

      analyze the “melt factor”. I have had children leave ice cream in bowls sitting in the sink overnight. It often looks like warm pudding the next morning and won’t pour down the sink, there must be running water to push the gelatinous mess down the drain.

  • John Djdaddyco Cohagen

    I tried the same experiment, but I kept eating the ice cream sandwiches after just a couple of minutes. So, I have no idea if the story is real or not.

        Reported temperatures are taken in the shade, not in direct sunlight.

        Direct sunlight will melt frozen things faster.

  • Raven

    the ones I eat are melting as soon as I open them up. But Blue Bunny is the best!

    • Thunder Lizard

      Ditto, I found Blue Bunny holds up quite well whereas the Wal Mart brand tends to soft quicker once its out of the freezer.

      • Anonymous

        Depends on the amt. of butter fat ingredient — i.e. the calorie count.
        A lower calorie count will melt faster.

  • Gankin

    I had the same thing happen with the cups of sherbet, all of it had not been eaten and I placed the cup in the sink… Next morning it was still in solid form, it did not melt… Didn’t buy anymore of that.

  • Felicity Ann Charles

    I’m in Florida and none of the sandwiches will make it home if I do not bring a cooler with ice! I usually just go to the dollar tree and give them to the kids right after paying for them.

          Yeah because god has been real mean to us “esaurites” over the last several thousand years. Meanwhile “israelites” as you are calling yourself suffer endlessly, live in poverty, and even when left to their/your own devices suffer endless drug & disease epidemics. Maybe god just hates “israelites”? Maybe he’s trying to hint you should change your ways. What does god have to do — turn you all into pillars of salt — for you to get the message?

    Here’s my theory – if you put ice cream in a frostless freezer for a few weeks, the outer edges get gummy and stiff as they repeatedly melt and refreeze, releasing the interior mositure. I’ll bet those ice cream sandwiches in the original story had been through that process and didn’t melt into a goopy mess because of it.

      Agreed. And if it were left in the wrapper, it may have not collapsed and this is what she is describing. It’s still a long way from being frozen.

  • beckster

    Here’s my thought. I believe that it is more than likely it is a stir up against WalMart. I try almost anything in the store brands. Most are really good. Why? Most store brands of anything are made by large corporations. If the ingredient list was close to the other two they tested (the news anchors testings) then they all should have melted about the same. I am sure all brands try to stop quick melting to some degree, just so you can get it home in 90+ degree weather without it melting. I, on the other hand, have pulled ice cream out of my home freezer that is about 8 degrees below freezing and have found it to be soft. How can that be? Most be manufactured to be soft enough for quick serving. I am just saying. Just my observation from being a consumer for many years and a mom to 5 ice cream loving kids or maybe 6 if you count my husband. :)

    Never tried it with an ice cream sandwich, but I had the same thing to happen with a nutty butty. It had ice crystal on it when I took it out of the freezer so I put it on the kitchen table in a bowl of scraps. 12 hours later, it was still in the same shape / consistency. No melting at all (except for the ice crystals). It was a name brand nutty butty – not a store brand.

    • Michael Sands

      And it was 72 – 78 degrees in the house. The next morning I took it outside and do not know if it melted at that point.

  • Shirley Ujest

    Just finished reading current posts; my stomach hurts from laughing. How do we get off the subject so quickly?!! Focus! My take: it’s the additives, stupid. Almost everything we Americans consume from the standard supermarkets – are GMO foods, have lots of yucky additives, unnecessary sugar or salt, bleached out or removed goodness – all for the sake of SALE$. Food and Drug Administration, Monsanto, Pharmaceutical companies, the AMA – golly, everybody’s making money and Americans (who should be the healthiest people on earth) are fat and dying. I’m an addicted fatty, so the point is for myself as well – we all need to wake up. If it’s got ingredients you can’t pronounce or which seem like they don’t need to be there (e.g. guar gum…) Don’t buy it. Don’t eat it. If my be cheaper now – but kill you faster, or at least make you not as healthy as you could be. Read your labels – get rid of the junk. Try to eat fresh, organic, maybe even gluten free (that wheat is not the same stuff we grew 50 years ago). Ice cream sandwiches that don’t melt (and I don’t care where you are) – are scary. Butter may have natural fat, but ants won’t touch a stick of margarine left on a picnic table…what’s wrong with this picture? We’ve added, whipped, infused, enhanced, and CHANGED good food into junk – and it could be the reason we have cancers and so many other diseases (that aren’t being cured, just treated.) We’ve depleted soils; could be we need natural vitamin and mineral supplements that aren’t in the foods we eat. Just sayin’! GBY.

      Gar Gum will enable the whipped cream (or fat free milk) to hold its volume. Nothing wrong with that.

      I would just love for anyone to explain to me the reason we are all alive and live longer than any other time in history with all the supposed poisons we ingest on a daily basis. Interesting side note, when BHT (Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT)) went into common use stomach cancer rates plummeted.

      Shirley your dumb. He just showed the story is made up and you continue defend a made up science fair story by a soccer mom. What’s worse than ignorant morons who make up a story? Ignorant morons who continue to spread it.

    Once our family and good friends of ours rented a cabin in Big Bear, the other wife/mom and I went out to the store to buy food for the week and she picked up cheese slices from the dollar store for cheeseburgers. Those things did not melt…the oil kind of separated from ‘product’ but that cheese did not melt. It grossed me out so bad and made me thankful I don’t like cheeseburgers.

    I have a better one than this, my daughter has an ice cream sandwich that has not melted in 2 years and was subject to min. 68 degrees all year in her play kitchen!

  • TheDoctorWhoCuresCancer

    The tests that were done show how easy it is to not replicate an experiment.

    Putting the icecream in the sun is not the same as leaving it overnight.

    I had a watermelon from there that was like keeping its shape when I was eating it like maybe a foam rubber type texture and it lasted for a month sitting there out of the refer and finally I threw it out and it is in the back yard still not rotting .it is a gmo for sure .

    • Anonymous

      Yes. I prefer watermelons that rot within hours of buying them at the store. None of these “lasting-longer-than-several-days” watermelons for me. I also prefer my food to rot before I get it home — that’s how I know it’s fresh.

    Its called stabilizer people. Heavily stabilized (gelatinized) and whipped milk. Know what it is you are eating BEFORE you look like an idiot to the professionals (i.e. boiling Coca Cola and freaking out at the consistency) when you get up on t.v. “GAHHHH its not real food!” You Paid $2 for a box of 20 of those effers, what the eff do you think they were!?!?

    While you can see some melting in the Walmart brand, it still looks like a slab of ice cream. It also looks less than white.

    did you happen to notice which one – if any – had any insect on it ? if the insects and animals won’t eat it – we shouldn’t either – it’s not REAL food – it’s all processed drap

    • Anonymous

      Great. This one prefers insects on her food — lecturing me on what I should eat. I prefer the insect-free yogurt, thanks.

    Finally, a topic Beck’s qualified to report on. Higher concentrations of cellulose and guar gum makes for a firmer “icecream” sandwich in higher temperatures. Excellent work.

    Wasnt It Left Out Overnight, Not During The Day?

  • Callie

    Me and my husband had an ice cream sandwich fall out in our trunk when we found it it was still in the same shape and had not melted and we live in Arizona. We were disgusted and I don’t buy that crap anymore. Her findings were legit!!

  • crags

    Now I want one

  • Stephanie Weaver

    This is why America has so much food. It’s because most of it is processed crap. Even the foods that are supposed to be healthy were probably originally created in some lab, then mass produced. Oh you wanna eat yogurt as part of your healthy diet? Sure! (mixes some powders and some liquid stuffs together along with some food paint (food coloring)) Here you go, fresh and healthy strawberry yogurt! Just read another article about the 12 year old mcdonalds hamburger myth. They tested it with other hamburgers including a home ground one. They all had the same result of no decomposing. MAYBE Cause all the BEEF is mostly NOT BEEF or the Cows are genetically altered. We’re not even eating real food most of the time anymore. After reading all this, I think I’m going to be kucfing sick.

      You prefer your beef to go rancid quickly? Yogurt lasting more than a week is making you throw up? And since when is a sterile environment (lab) a bad thing? You want your food processed in a compost heap?

      I’m not sure what your problem is.

      • Pamela Brock

        Her problem is that the food industry is so greedy that it ……….what’s the point? If you don’t KNOW how beef is produced in this country, what hope is there that other head-in-the-sand types will EVER ACT when our country is being dismantled piece by piece? Our desire to ignore what we are being fed is PROOF that we can be easily overcome by our enemies…….. we don’t want anything to change if it means we might have to work harder or be smarter………or THINK! btw, beef IS processed in a composed heap

      • ken.

        do you prefer to have your food poisoned with dangerous chemicals?

      • Stephanie Weaver

        Pretty sure I didn’t say I want to eat food processed in a compost heap but okey-dokey then.

    • Anonymous

      Where are they getting their beef?! Based on the amount of
      food that I have to throw out (mostly uneaten left-overs) because of
      decomposition, we apparently shop at very different places.

    Don’t eat dry ice. I drank some beers that I put outside this last winter. I had a few sips and they froze up. We can’t sense cold as well as we do heat.
