freezing dates; 5 spice tofu for sweet recipes

Is it okay to freeze dried pitted dates? I mean, will it mess with the texture or make them go all gross when thawed? Also, how well do they sub in for granulated or liquid sweeteners (in non-raw recipes)?

Also, I found Chinese 5 spice tofu at my grocery store. It's yummy stuff, though the spices in it (cinnamon, cloves, anise, ginger, and something else) aren't things I'd have thought to put in savory dishes. Has anyone tried using it as an egg replacer in desserts? First thing that comes to mind is a favorite pumpkin pie recipe...
