After they were tipped off that a Walmart ice cream sandwich left out overnight didn’t melt, a Cincinnati news station set out to investigate. They put the question to food scientists, and the answer (not surprisingly) was the amount of stabilisers used in ice cream was so high it kept it’s shape even in high temperatures. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Center for Science in the Public Interest, the stabilisers cellulose gum and guar gum are both categorised as safe for consumption.

It’s hard work being a sumo wrestler. The amount of food alone is a daunting task. Meet world sumo champion Byamba Ulambayar – who consumes 10,000 calories a day to keep his 6-foot-1 360 pound frame. The video follows Byamba as he makes chankonabe – a stew with fish broth, meat, tofu, eggs and vegetables. The Mongolian born athlete, who moved to Japan as a child, explains that his enormous diet is still about nutrition. “If you want to be a sumo wrestler you have to be able to practice, you know? And then after that the body is going to be tired, right? And then it has to eat healthy and take a lot of portions,” he said.

Watch as Sam Pepper walked up to various patrons of a pizza shop, explaining that he was hungry and would like a slice of their food.
