Have Fun Selecting the Color and Flavor of Your Shaved Ice Concentrate
Other than flavor, one of the main things that people associate Hawaiian shaved ice with is bright colors. The refreshing and sweet summer treat is typically adorned with one or more bright, primary hues at a time, creating an energetic and happy mood.
At Real Hawaiian Ice, we love all the bright colors of syrup that you can use on snow cones and shaved ice. Obviously they taste great, but as a bonus they look fun and summery. To take things to the next level, some people try out several flavors and colors at once to create a multi-colored, rainbow work of art. The possibilities when mixing shaved ice syrup are almost limitless.
But have you ever stopped to consider what creates these icy works of art? The ice alone is white/clear and a concentrated syrup is poured atop to make the iconic shave ice dessert what it is.
There are two different methods of having shaved ice syrups. First, there are ready-to-use syrups, which already have preservatives and sugar or corn syrup in them. That means that as soon as you pop open the container, you are ready to pour the liquid substance over your freshly shaved ice and enjoy.
The second options is to use a flavored shaved ice concentrate, which has to be mixed with water, sugar and preservatives to produce syrups flavors for use.
If you’re the owner of a shaved ice business, or you produce shaved ice at high volume, you may be looking for some ways to save money and cut costs. In that case, shaved ice concentrate is a good solution if you are willing to put in a little extra effort.
Using shaved ice flavor concentrate requires a bit more preparation, but it has some key advantages over ready-to-use syrups. For one, mixing concentrate is a more economical way to purchase flavors, you can spend less and cut costs by 50%-60% just by mixing them yourself.
At Real Hawaiian Ice, our shaved ice concentrate flavors comes from an authentic, gourmet Hawaiian recipe.
