Hametz foods' shelf life

Pessah is over, the weather is warming up, so we bought ice cream and ice cream cones.   
On the box of the cones is a sticker to let us know that it was made after Pessah 5772, as well as the manufacturing date: April 15, and the Best Before date: March 25th next year.   "March 25?" we wondered.  Unusual to see shelf life not measured in even weeks or months.   But not in Israel.  The best before date of post-Pessah hametz is, of course, Erev Pessah next year.
