Because yesterday's news about alcohol-infused ice cream had to be countered with this.

It's ice cream...but it takes up to an hour to melt.

A reporter spent 5 minutes in the sun with one of these delicious abominations and it didn't melt at all. Another shot their hair dryer at it for five minutes and got the same result.

It's called Kanazawa Ice. Of course, they're currently only available in Japan.

But here's my question: why would you even NEED ice cream that doesn't melt normally?! Doesn't everyone violently devour their ice cream cones in under a minute?

Asking for a friend...
