Um, when you eat that you're basically eating chocolate flavored wax.

Seriously, look it up.

I'm still going to eat it, though

No you are not, it is due to the coconut and sunflower oil

The "shell" effect in Magic Shell is due to the presence of coconut oil and sunflower oil, both of which contain high amounts of saturated fat, and sugar which produces a chocolate mixture which is solid at higher temperatures than would otherwise be the case with normal ice cream topping. Contrary to what many people believe, paraffin wax is not an ingredient of Magic Shell.

THANKS, WIKIPEDIA

One time at my house there was a bottle of this, and it was apparently a year old or so.
When I poured it at my ice cream, it came as clear smudge. So yes, wax.

Just did some research. So many different answers. Some say that it is paraffin wax, and different things about it (okay for consumption or not). Some other sources say that it is just thought to be and is actually just coconut oil with some other stuff. Hard to tell though, sources all so much unclear.

-and yes, still going to eat the **** out of it either way.

You must be **** at research.  Directly from the smuckers website: SUGAR, SUNFLOWER OIL, COCONUT OIL, COCOA, CHOCOLATE, CONTAINS 2% OR LESS OF: COCOA PROCESSED WITH ALKALI, SOY LECITHIN, MILK, SALT, VANILLA.

Also it's not like we have organizations across the world ensuring that products marketed as food are safe to eat or not.

Not all used ingredients/chemicals are listed. In fact a lot of the time only a fraction of them are.

Took that into account. According to this

www.chow.com/food-news/54102/how-does-magic-shell-ice-cream-topping-work/

It's not listed, but is used. I read everything before choosing only one source to go on. Not everything is truthful, so there is always the chance of someone being wrong. I simply didn't want to jump to conclusions on one source. I respect your opinion of my researching skills based on results. Thank you for your input.

Good research, bud!

I looked on the back of a bottle once and it said something-"wax". I don't know, maybe one of us needs to get a bottle of it.

Could also be the same wax that Hersey uses for M&M's

Well, my point about the wax remains the same
