Thank you for the question. Ice cream melts
because over half of it is water, which melts at
32 degrees Fahrenheit. Ice cream also contains
other ingredients, such as fat and sugar, which
lower the melting point, but just by a few
degrees. A typical freezer stays around 0 degrees,
and a refrigerator around 40 degrees, which is why
ice cream will stay frozen in the freezer and melt
in the refrigerator.
