How long will sugared fresh fruit stay good in the freezer?

I partially cleared out my freezer recently, and found three containers of strawberries from 2006. These were good organic strawberries, hand-picked with my son, promptly rinsed, sliced, sugared and frozen.

I've never tried keeping anything that long in the freezer before (BTW mine is a fridge/freezer combo, not a stand-alone deep freeze). If it were meat or prepackaged food I'd toss it without a second thought, but I'm reluctant to discard such deliciousness unless it's really necessary..

Think the berries are still OK?
