After you watch this video, you may never want to purchase a tub of Blue Bell ice cream ever again. This young woman was caught on video taking the lid off the ice cream before licking it and then putting it back on the shelf in the freezer section. As part of a practical joke that has since gone viral across the internet, the woman is now the subject of a manhunt fronted by ice cream maker Blue Bell themselves.
No one wants to think that someone has already tainted with the food that they are buying at the grocery store. However, this viral video shows that people are twisted enough to lick ice cream tubs and put them back on the shelf. What other bodily fluids are they slathering onto food as a practical joke?
In the video, the young woman takes a 64-ounce tub of Blue Bell Ice Cream out of the freezer, removes the lid, and licks it with gusto. She then puts it back on the shelf where she found it in the hopes that someone would buy the tainted ice cream product with her saliva all over it.
Unfortunately, no one knows exactly where the ice cream was licked. The only people who know where the incident occurred are the woman who did it and the people who were there filming her commit the act.
However, Blue Bell is fighting back. According to WAFB, Blue Bell is working with law enforcement agents to track down the woman who did this. They want to know who would taint their expensive ice cream and try to get away with it.
Was this video an attempt to protest Blue Bell ice cream and others? Because many ice cream manufacturers like Blue Bell try to cut costs by not placing plastic wrap over the top of their products, ice cream gets exposed to pranksters and activists like this young woman who will go to great lengths to prove that ice cream makers need to protect their product.
For example, one Twitter user named Tamie Trouble wrote, “(I love Blue Bell) but look at this height of nastiness from this gal. Please start putting plastic over the ice cream, so we can know if it was tampered with.”
Blue Bell heard this woman’s complaint loud in clear. In an interview with WAFB, a spokesperson from the company said:
“This type of incident will not be tolerated,” Blue Bell told WAFB. “Food safety is a top priority, and we work hard to provide a safe product and maintain the highest level of confidence from our consumers.”
The incident was considered “food tampering” because the woman tainted the product and put it back on the shelf for sale. Because so many people were worried, Blue Bell shared the following message on Twitter:
“(We) want to thank our consumers for alerting us to the recent food tampering incident. We take this issue very seriously and are currently working with the appropriate authorities. For more information, please visit our website.”
