Tips

  • How long does frozen whipped dessert topping last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep whipped dessert topping frozen at all times.
  • Properly stored, frozen whipped dessert topping will maintain best quality for about 6 months in the freezer, although it will usually remain safe to eat after that.
  • Is frozen whipped dessert topping safe to eat after the expiration date on the package? Yes, if properly stored - commercially frozen whipped dessert topping will typically carry a “Best By," "Best if Used By," “Best Before”, or "Best When Used By" date but this is not a safety date, it is the manufacturer's estimate of how long the frozen whipped dessert topping will remain at peak quality.
  • How long will frozen whipped dessert topping remain safe to eat? Frozen whipped dessert topping that has been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely, as long as it has been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
  • How to tell if frozen whipped dessert topping is no longer good? If dry spots or discoloration have developed on the frozen whipped dessert topping, freezer burn has begun to set in - this will not make the whipped dessert topping unsafe to eat, but it will harm the texture and taste.
