LUFKIN, Texas — Authorities in Texas are working to identify a woman who licked the inside of an ice cream tub before putting it back on a grocery shelf.

Viral video of the woman shows her licking a half-gallon of Blue Bell “Tin Roof” ice cream in a Lufkin, Texas, Walmart store around 11 p.m. on June 28, according to police.
