I think regular tubs of Ben and Jerry's and similar will expire or get all crystalized after a few months.  But a box of neapolitan?  That should last several decades.

Expire? Are they holding shipments in warehouses for months?

That sh*t just goes. I mean, yeah, store brands might push it because people only buy store brands for kids or office parties, but the bigger names have their fan base. Waddling and happy.

JFC someone got paid money to write those words.

Way back in the day I was a Master Food Preserver volunteer for the Ag Extension Service. We got a whole bunch of information on how long food lasts in frost-free freezers, chest freezers, and for different temperatures. The rule of thumb was that ice cream would last 9-12 months. The absolutely predictable question that everyone asked was "Who keeps ice cream around for a year?"

I kept some around because here, Blue Bell costs nearly $8/container most of the time but they have coupons or promos every so often where it's like 2/$7.

Well, I was eating healthier and running to get in shape for a basketball tournament, so I would still buy the ice cream when it went on sale for AFTER the tournament. I had probably 8 half-gallon tubs and went through them pretty quickly when the tournament was over.

But even that was just, like, 6 months, max.

"You'd think the freezer is some kind of fountain of youth that'd keep food edible forever, right?" You'd think Food & Wine would have decent writers.

How about you write about your opinions and what facts you have, and keep it at that. It's not your place to tell me what I think.
