A viral video sparked concern of people leaving their Nestlé drumsticks out and question the treat not melting. 

A viral video has since gained over 11 million views since publication of someone claiming to leave their drumstick cone out for nearly 24 hours. 

In the video the user said, “I was eating it, but I will not eat it any longer, I will not eat these again.”

Another user also expressed similar concerns leaving her ice cream cone out too.

In her post she captioned the video, “I need answers.”

The Brandon Gonez Show contacted an integrative nutritionist named Dora Chan and she explained that it’s not entirely clear what goes into the treat.

“According to Nestle Canada, it appears that their Classic Vanilla Drumstick is made with: Milk and modified milk ingredients, sugar, palm and soybean oils, a variety of emulsifiers and stabilizers (mono- and diglycerides, soy lecithin, cellulose gum, carob bean gum, carrageenan), and added colour and flavours.”

“The emulsifiers and stabilizers are put in there to enhance the texture, creaminess, and stability of the ice cream and likely the reason the ice cream doesn’t appear to “melt” in the video. The frozen milk is melted, but keeps its ice cream appearance due to these chemicals,” she added.

Chan also confirmed that it is safe to eat Drumsticks or similar ice creams in small amounts.

The Brandon Gonez Show contacted Nestlé Canada, but did not receive a response before publication. 

In addition, Chan said food additives are regulated in Canada under the Food and Drug Regulations and are considered safe.
