Are your flavors ready-to-use?

 

All of our flavored syrups come ready-to-use. You do not need to add sugar or water to the syrup. Simply open the bottle, pour and enjoy.  If you are looking for concentrates please visit our sister website at www.1-800-Shaved-Ice.com.  This is a website dedicated to commercial shaved ice machines, concentrates and other business equipment.

What are the difference between ready-to-use syrups and flavor concentrates?

 

With ready-to-use syrups, no mixing or additives are required.  All you have to do is open the bottle of syrup, pour and enjoy.  Concentrates are for mixing your own syrup at home and are primarily only used in shaved ice or snow cone businesses.  When using concentrates, you first make your own simple syrup at home using sugar, water and preservatives.  Next, concentrate is added to flavor the syrup.  If you are looking for concentrates please visit our sister website at www.1-800-Shaved-Ice.com.  This is a website dedicated to commercial shaved ice machines, concentrates and other business equipment.

What is a bottle pourer and why do I need it?

 

A bottle pourer is plastic pouring device that fits in the end of our quart long neck bottles.  The bottle pourer helps to control the flow of syrup as you pour.  Without a bottle pourer it can be difficult to add syrup to a cup of shaved ice.

What size containers are available for your syrups?

 

We sell our ready-to-use syrup in plastic quart bottle, plastic gallon jugs and in 5 gallon pails.

Do you sell smaller bottles of syrup?

 

The smallest size bottle that we sell is a quart.  We have found that we can produce  quarts at much cheaper prices per ounce than we can smaller bottles.

What is the Homemade Ice Cream Kit?

 

Our Homemade Ice Cream kit comes with a quart of our "Secret Homemade Ice Cream Mix" along with a can of evaporated milk.  Once the Homemade Ice Cream Mix and evaporated milk is combined, the flavor will have a creamy vanilla type taste.  The mixed flavor gives shaved ice a smooth creamy texture that resembles the old fashioned style of homemade ice cream.   Instructions on combine the ingredients are included. 

 

Once the mix and evaporated milk is combined, the flavor must be refrigerated and will keep for 5 to 7 days.

Does your syrup need to be refrigerated? What is the best way to store syrups?

 

To maximize shelf life, we suggest storing our syrups and concentrates at room temperature out of direct sunlight.  The concentrates do not have to be refrigerated.  However, refrigerating the syrups will increase the shelf life of the syrups by a few months.

Do you sell syrup pumps for quarts and gallons?

 

We stock pumps for our gallon jugs only.  At this time we do not stock pumps for our quart bottles.

What is the shelf life for your ready-to-use syrups?

 

Our ready-to-use syrups have a 2-year shelf life beginning on the bottling day. However, because we can't bottle the syrups on a per order basis, we guarantee a minimum of 12-months of shelf life upon recieving your syrup. Please refer to the USE BY date on the lower right hand corner of your label. To maximize shelf life, we suggest storing syrups at room temperature out of direct sunlight. The syrups do not have to be refrigerated, however, if you choose to refrigerate, the shelf life may be extended by a few months.

How many servings do you get out of each quart or gallon?

 

The amount of syrup used per serving will vary depending on the size of the serving, the texture of the ice and the setting of the ice shaver blade.  Coarser ice will take less syrup as fluffy ice.    It will take around 1 to 2 ounces of syrup to flavor 1 eight ounce serving of shaved ice produce by our machines.  Thus, you should be able flavor around 20 to 25 servings per bottle.  You should be able to get around 80 servings out of one gallon.
