5 scoops of ice cream, 5 flavors

One thing people can say they have in common, is playing with food. We are all serious about what we intake and that should not be messed with. Well, a young woman was recorded licking ice cream out of a pint of Blue Bell and placing it back into the store freezer that she got it from.

The video went viral and has been viewed over 10 million times in two days. Blue Bell Creameries said it is” monitoring the situation” and cooperating with law enforcement. Food tampering is considered a felony and the woman in the video could face up to 10 years in prison and fines. Social media is calling for this woman’s arrest because anybody could have bought the ice cream that she licked and put back into the freezer.

Many question why the ice cream does not have a seal, to avoid future incidents like this from happening. Blue Bell stated that “During production, our half gallons are flipped upside down and sent to a hardening room where the ice cream freezes to the lid, creating a natural seal”. That’s quite understandable and we hope the woman in the video gets the help she needs.
