Does ice cream have an expiration date?

I don't really eat ice cream that much, but I have this stuff called 'Cherry Cheesecake' made by Stroh's thats been in the freezer for awhile like a year or less....any clues??

  • Due to the temperature at which ice cream is stored, it won't spoil from microbial growth - but age can play havoc with the quality. Highly stabilized ice creams can dehydrate and turn gummy. Frost free freezers can cause lactose crystals to form, making it undesirable to eat. Open containers can pick up freezer flavors. Ice cream doesn't get any better with age and most refrigerator freezers aren't meant for long term ice cream storage.

  • It will have an expiration date, but if it's been really frozen solid, it will be fine. I'd eat it!
