    Maybe it is the chemistry nerd in me but I don't know why everyone was surprised at that video. What do you expect to happen when you boil sugar? Totally expected result when I saw that video.

    I drink coke as well and I know it ain't good for you but in moderation who gives a hell really. If you are drinking 2 liters a day then maybe you may have to get some help. Everything in this world causes cancer and will kill you if you do something in excess.

    LOL # everything gives you cancer. So true. In fact I am convinced that one day we will discover that plastic has been poisoning us all and is responsible for modern health problems. Kinda like how the lead pipes that the Romans used poisoned them.

    I agree with you- moderation is indeed key. That being said, I don't think that we should use that to ignore the fact that companies would put benzene into food if it could somehow net them a profit. We have to stay vigilant and not let these guys keep coming up with harmful "food" because "everything gives us cancer". If we do, then we will end up with Soylent Green.

    Wal-mart, Wal-mart, why... Wal-mart owns Great Value and I am surprised and shocked. I always try to encourage my friends to give Wal-mart a chance, but fake ice cream is a low blow. Similar to Mc Donald's burgers that won't get moldy, just hard, rock hard.

    I quickly lose appetite when I see videos like these. There was one particular video where a guy digs up a month old cheeseburger from his trash bin. There was no mold or sign of decay. It's a great experiment to see how much additives, preservative and other mysterious things that are added to the food we purchase.

    So it has greater proportions of cream is it..? and more than that,they have added corn syrup, guar gum, carob bean gum and cellulose gum,to help the ice cream retain its shape..It really is great value ice cream..Any hints on the cost..?

    That's pretty damn disgusting, Ice cream these days and other foods is hardly the original thing, companies just add all these chemicals and sorts to make it taste more, I want natural ice cream damn it! D:

    I'm not surprised with what I saw, most foods are laced with harmful preservatives so that it won't spoil that soon at the cost of harming the consumer's body. I wonder if that ice cream sandwich will be pulled out of the market or not after that video was released.

    That is really crazy that the ice cream wouldn't melt. There has to be something in it to keep it from melting. Can you imagine the kind of chemicals must be in it to keep the ice cream from melting? There is no way I would eat something like that. Besides, I like my ice cream to be melted because I like when it's soft.
