According to Wal-Mart’s website, the ice cream sandwiches contain milk, cream, buttermilk, sugar, whey, and corn syrup.
It also contains “1 percent or less of mono-and diglycerides, vanilla extract, guar gum, calcium sulfate, carob bean gum, cellulose gum, carrageenan, artificial flavor, and annatto for color.”
WCPO conducted an experiment of their own, leaving out a third Walmart sandwich alongside a Klondike bar and a pint of Haagen Dazs ice cream. The Haagen Dazs ice cream — which contains only cream, milk, sugar, eggs and vanilla, and no gums — melted fastest. The Klondike bar melted, too.
As you might expect, the Wal-Mart sandwich melted slower than all of them.
So what do you think of this? Do you buy Wal-Mart’s explanation that it’s simply all the cream that prevents their ice cream sandwiches from melting, or are you grossed out by all of the additives in their sandwiches?
