Do you know the difference between cheap ice cream and expensive ice cream?

Queenie Tan, a finance expert from Sydney, told TikTok the shocking reason why some ice creams are more expensive than others, and it turns out it all comes down to looks.

Tan went viral on the social media platform after picking up two types of ice cream from her local supermarket, one cheap and one more experience and scooping it into a bowl before weighing it.

The TikToker noted that the cheaper two-liter tub of vanilla ice cream weighed 885g while the 457-milliliter tub – the most expensive tub – weighed 391g. Tan said the cheapest product was 44% ice cream with a total of 56% air.

But the hook came when she revealed the most expensive product was 86% ice cream and only 14% air.

Tan told viewers, “Cheap ice cream was 10 times cheaper than expensive ice cream per litre, so it’s still cheaper even with air!! But it’s just interesting to consider.”

“Just FYI (FYI) these numbers are approximate as I don’t have a lab to measure everything 100%! I just thought it was interesting to see the difference between one ice cream and another .”

The clip has since gone viral on TikTok with over 2.9 million views and over 1,000 comments.

One person said, “Are you saying I can eat more cheap stuff because it’s lighter?” Tan replied, “Haha you boo. Just check the ingredients as some may have fillers too!”

Another said, “Why are people surprised that expensive products are better than cheap products?”, and one user commented, “I kinda like the lightness of cheap products.”

One user commented, “mind blowing” and another added, “There is also another report – ice cream” to which Tan replied, “Yes, very true. So much to consider! More expensive ice cream has usually more fat/cream.”
