Why does Ben & Jerry's become frozen as ice?

Caleb | Oct 14, 2012 03:14 PM


I was wondering, why is B&J as hard as ice whenever I take it out of the freezer? It's frustrating because I end up having to wait a while before I could scoop any ice cream because it feels like a lump of ice.

Some of the cheaper ice creams I used to buy tend to usually stay soft (not too soft though).

Is this because the B&J ice creams have less air content? And is there a way to store it so that it doesn't freeze up like this?
