Did You Know-Ice Cream
Have you ever taken Ice Cream out of your freezer, that was already opened, and find it covered in ice crystals?
The reason ice crystals form is as simple as air between the lid and the ice cream.
How do you keep your Ice Cream from forming ice crystals?
Simply smooth out the top of the Ice Cream then place a piece of waxed paper on top. Rub the waxed paper against the Ice Cream and put the top of the carton back on, it’s that simple.

Thanks for the tip.
And here, once again I have to type in my name, email address, website and log into WP after just doing so and clicking remember me yesterday grrr!!!!!
Have you contacted WP yet? I know there are sites I have always had to do that to also and the remember me button never works. I always assumed it was a button they added but I haven’t added anything different to my site.
I did put the question forth today to the WP forum. That’s the option of help I could find.
I hope my site isn’t that tedious.
I’ve been responding to WP’s questions, tried everything they suggested, and still no solution found 🙁
That’s too bad, so sorry!
Things now work better, from time to time, then yesterday, I posted a comment on a blog and WP set up the comment as if it was posted by an anonymous person. I have no idea what causes such technical issues in WP but a blog I read yesterday referenced how many people leave WP due to all the technical issues. I guess we should celebrate the times things do work here 🙂 I appreciate the WP community so will stay with it.
Oh! Now I know why! Will def try it thanks so much for sharing this knowledge.
You are welcome Tammy❣️
Love you D!!! 😘 haha
Right back at ya Tammy! 💕
Thank you Chif ❤️
Wow, that’s really good advice! I had no idea about why the crystals formed. I will definitely be putting some wax paper on top of my ice cream tub.
Thank you for stopping by Pooja! 💕
My pleasure! ☺️
I will be trying this little trick! Thanks, Diane!
Ice cream is too expensive and delicious to let it go bad. You’re welcome Karla!

It is isn’t it and so simple❣️
Thank you Sheree! 💕
Thanks for this awesome tip! Yes I’ve been craving the last bit of ice cream (that I remembered being in the freezer from a couple weeks ago) and ICK – it is shriveled and covered in ice crystals!
Not any more! You’re welcome Tierney💕
I had no idea that you could prevent it! Thanks for sharing 🥰
You are very welcome💕
Interesting tip, Diane.
How is vanilla bean different from vanilla in taste?
It has more vanilla taste but I love any vanilla ice cream. Lol
One of those simple solutions most of us didn’t think of … as my daughter would say, “>duh<" 😉
Haha It works! ❣️
Loved the tip. Will try for sure. Thank you.
Thank you Nancy💕
Ha..never lasts this long for this problem to happen to us!
Now that the grandkids aren’t here half the week ours has been lasting much longer. Lol
Nice tip. 🌝
Glad you like it Suni ❣️
Great trick, Diane. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for the reblog Yernasia❣️
The thing is … our ice-cream disappear so quickly, it doesn’t get time to have ice crystals on top!! But thanks Diane, I will remember for in case …
You and a lot of other people 😂
Yes, the dreaded ice crystals – I did not know that Diane. And how do you keep bread from getting that sometimes icky taste and smell from being in the freezer. I used to buy bagels when they were BOGO and put the second one in the freezer – I ate them, but they had a funny taste.
I put mine in a plastic storage bag and then a freezer bag. But still, they won’t keep for a long time.
Yes, that’s what I do too, but they often get that strange taste to them. This is the rustic-type bread … maybe that’s why?
Could be, I keep my daily bread in the refrigerator and it lasts well past the use by date. Maybe try that?
I have actually had Pepperidge Farm and Brownberry last two, almost three weeks past the due date in the fridge. I used to buy bagels for Winter and freeze them. My canary and I shared one every day – this was so I didn’t have to go shopping in the Winter. But they always had a funny smell. They toasted up fine and no funny taste, but the smell could turn you off. I would take one out of the freezer every morning and let it defrost. After I lost Buddy, I switched to crackers.
I had no idea. Thanks, Diane.
Usually ice cream doesn’t last long enough, in most houses, to form the ice crystals. You’re welcome Janet.
Thanks so much for that tip. I always didn’t like having the ice cream again once the ice crystals formed on top.
You’re welcome and yes it is nasty with ice crystals.
Mine doesn’t last long, but I will try this regardless. Thanks for the tip, Diane.
You’re very welcome Carla 💕
Ummm… My ice cream doesn’t last long enough to form ice crystals. I have seen them on top of ice cream in “other peoples” freezer. I don’t remember when, or who’s freezer, but it “was” chocolate. I say “was” because I probably ate it.
Hahaha you’re hilarious!
Thanks for tip, we shall try this!
You’re welcome, it works!
