May not melt, but how’s its temperature retention?


#3

If you pump enough emulsifiers into your ice cream bars, you will find they hold together splendidly – they not only hold their shape, but they are basically insulating foam which keeps the temperatures steady.

The only caveat: your customers really like eating foam.

Ice cream that doesn’t melt?


#5

With a name like BIOTHERAPY DEVELOPMENT RESEARCH CENTER COMPANY it simply must be good.


#6

Other (dubious) reports suggested they were deformed mutant fruits from around Fukushima.


#7

Perfect when combined with coffee that doesn’t pour.


#8

You can’t go wrong with some delicious polyphenols from Mr. Toyoda.

Oh, the expression on the ice-cream bear with a stick up its arse - the perfect blend of discomfort, indignity, and slow dawning horror that it cannot escape even by melting.

" polyphenol liquid extracted from strawberries…"

Natural, then. All right. For a while, the “don’t melt” part made me think the ice cream was something from Monsanto or Union Carbide.

Hemlock is “natural”. So is belladonna ^^’. If you wanna get really picky, it’s difficult to consider almost anything found in this universe truly “unnatural”, although the man-made transuranics (“synthetic radioactive elements”) probably qualify; I doubt if we’re gonna find any unununium (AKA “roentgenium”) anywhere out there, much less the really exotic stuff…

Oh sure, non-melting ice cream from Japan is all whimsical and shit, but when Walmart ice cream sandwiches don’t melt it’s creepy…

I remember buying a carton of ice cream from the frozen foods section of a French grocery store, and the uneaten portion maintained its shape but changed into a gross foam as a liquid trickled away from it.

Even fully frozen it was pretty bad. Find a gelato stand instead.

I figure that since the polyphenol liquid obtained was natural too and came from a natural source (I think we can agree that strawberries are natural :slight_smile:) and was not created by us…


#14

None of which have ever been known in Japan anyway.
