Frequently Asked Syrup Questions
I'm a researcher. Before I dive into anything, I ask a lot of questions and make sure I clearly understand the answers. Likewise, many of our customers do the same thing. Below I've listed some of our most frequently asked questions about shaved ice and snow cone syrups. Do you have questions about syrups that I haven't answered here? Just give me a call at 1-800-742-8334 and I'll be glad to help you out!

What is the difference between ready-to-use syrups and flavor concentrates? Our ready-to-use syrups require no special mixing. We ship you the syrup and all you do is shake and serve. Flavor concentrates require you to mix the syrup yourself. Simply purchase the desired flavor concentrates, add simple syrup and preservatives and you are ready to go.

Does your syrup need to be refrigerated? To maximize shelf life, we suggest storing our syrups and concentrates at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.
