China’s ice cream world just got a brain freeze! Zhongxuegao, a premium ice cream company, stirred up social media with its ice cream that won’t melt even in scorching heat. Someone posted pics of it next to a thermometer at 31°C, and guess what? It didn’t melt! People even tried open flames on it, but no luck. Zhongxuegao explained they use a ‘viscosity-enhancing agent’ but couldn’t chill the skepticism.

Questions about safety arose, with one person asking, “Is it safe to eat something that stops ice cream from melting?” Zhongxuegao’s high prices didn’t help. While they’re known for quality, their rep took a chilly hit. Who knew ice cream could be such a hot topic?
