Three days after Blue Bell vowed to solve the mystery of the woman caught licking ice cream before returning the carton to a grocery store freezer, company officials have announced an important development in the case. No, they haven't identified the woman; but they have identified the carton of ice cream -- and removed it from the store.
Blue Bell officials say they've determined the incident occurred at a Walmart in Lufkin, Texas, and the ice cream in question was Tin Roof. "Based on security footage, the location and the inspection of the carton, we believe we may have recovered the half gallon that was tampered with," the company said in a statement released Wednesday.
Earlier this week, a video showing an unidentified woman running her tongue through the contents of the open carton went viral. It wasn't clear where the video had been taken.
