Aussie Mary Salter recently called out Coles Ice Cream Sandwiches on Facebook after she discovered its 'ice cream' doesn't melt, like, ever.
When Salter's grandson left half an ice cream sandwich on the grass, she left it there assuming animals or insects would have at it or, you know, it'd melt. But according to Salter's Facebook post:
"After four days in [78-degree] heat on cement it has not melted and nothing has volunteered to eat it," she wrote.
Coles replied to Mary via Facebook private message, telling her:
"Our ice cream sandwiches make use of very simple, commonly-used food techniques that help slow the melting process, and allows you to consume it without it falling apart in your hands. These techniques include adding thickener to the cream, creating a honeycomb-like structure which helps to slow the melting process. When the product starts to melt and liquid evaporates, you are left with what appears as foam."
And here's what the ice cream sandwich looked like untouched for three days:
