We all love a good tub of ice cream. Whether you're recovering from a breakup, binge-watching your favorite Netflix show, or simply fancy a sweet treat, ice cream is one of the first things that we reach for to meet our sugary needs.
But, it seems like one woman may have just ruined this for everyone after a video has surfaced of her licking a tub of ice cream, putting it back into the supermarket freezer.
Well, she seems to have landed herself in some serious trouble after the ice cream brand in question has spoken out about the issue, and let's just say, they aren't happy.
Oh, and, of course, numerous grossed-out viewers have been responding to the video, and they're suitably disgusted.
Read on to see exactly what the woman did and what may happen to her now (spoiler alert - she could face quite the hefty punishment).
If you're a fellow ice cream fanatic, you may have heard of Blue Bell.Founded in 1907, the Texas-based creamery has become widely popular with fans.
It's now sold in several supermarkets across the states.
But, when one woman came across the Bluebell ice cream section in her supermarket, she did something, well, gross...

In a clip posted to Twitter, the young woman can be seen licking a tub of the frozen dessert.But it gets even worse... she puts the ice cream back in the freezer, while an off-camera voice can be heard saying "lick it" followed by "put it back, put it back." It seems like she got some friendly encouragement to pull the stunt.
The specific ice cream flavor in question?Blue Bell's limited edition Tin Roof flavor: vanilla ice cream with a chocolate fudge swirl and roasted peanuts dipped in dark chocolate. We knew you wanted to know.
The disgusting video went viral online.
