Iceberg Lettuce is a handy trick to have, whether you are using a Freeze deck, or just want to shut down a zombie for a short time. Iceberg Lettuce can be played to activate Snowdrop's ability, making it stronger, or Winter Squash's ability, instantly destroying any zombie, including huge threats like Zombot 1000 or Wannabe Hero.
This trick is especially good on Tennis Champ, but only when she is played, as her ability goes to waste due to her being frozen that turn. It is useful at preventing Frenzy zombies like Octo Zombie and Smashing Gargantuar from attacking, or Anti-Hero zombies like Mini-Ninja, to give a plant an extra turn to destroy him while the said zombie stays helpless. It is also useful at stalling zombies with high strength or health, such as Zombot 1000.
While this trick is outclassed by Big Chill due to the aforementioned superpower having the additional ability of drawing a card, Big Chill can only be played once per game, in which only Green Shadow and Rose can use it whereas you can play Iceberg Lettuce up to 4 times. Nightcap and Citron also do not have access to Big Chill, making Iceberg Lettuce even more mandatory for a Freeze deck.
While Iceberg Lettuce does not do any damage, it is a cheap trick to Freeze your zombie, which is annoying, and possibly even dangerous, especially if Snowdrop and/or Winter Squash are on the field when it is used. If that zombie is important to you, thaw it by making it do a bonus attack with cards like Lurch for Lunch. If you don't have any, boost its stats for it to survive the attack. But if you can sacrifice that zombie without ruining your strategy, it is usually better to let it be destroyed.
