GAO found that nearly half of all ice drinks sold by retailers are either frozen or have a cooling process to thaw them.
Only 16 percent of ice-related products have a non-thermal process to slow the melting process.
GAOs report also found that ice cream drinks that use high-temperature water are much more likely to melt than ice cream that uses low-temperatures.
The report also highlighted that some ice-containing beverages have “inhibitory” ingredients, including sugar, hydrogenated oils, flavorings, and alcohols that inhibit the melting of ice.
