This is not cool. Not cool at all. Ice cream maker Blue Bell says it’s looking into a now-viral video of a (childish, nasty, attention seeking) woman licking its ice cream and then placing the container back on shelves at a grocery store.
“This type of incident will not be tolerated,” the company told WAFB, adding that they are working with law enforcement, retail partners and social media platforms to find the sicko who did it.

It’s unclear where the clip was filmed and while obviously people think its a disgusting and dangerous prank, many are also unhappy with Blue Bell’s decision to not provide a protecting seal. They explain 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. The lids are frozen tightly to the carton. Any attempt at opening the product should be noticeable.”
So there are the facts. Maybe a trip to the freezer to check your ice cream would be in order.
