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.

If you feel inclined to give this experiment a try, let us know what you find in the comments below.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
