I've owned a snow cone stand for a little over three years now. The shelf-life of syrups can vary greatly. I use a powdered concentrate flavor and add sugar and water to mix my flavors. Some factors that can add to the length of shelf life of the syrup are:

1. How old is the flavor powder?

2. Are you using quality sugar?

3. Are you storing it in an airtight container?

4. Is the flavor sitting in direct sunlight?

I have had flavors last for up to 6 months before going bad and as little as one month. Flavors may last longer than 6 months. If they expire before a couple of months, there was likely a problem with the flavoring or sugar to begin with. You should always check flavors for odd smell or taste before using them and don't be afraid to pour them out if something is wrong.

How to Distinguish an Ice Shaver From a Snow Cone Maker?

The most commonly asked question by most individuals is: are and ice shaver and snow cone maker the same? Yes. Ice shavers and snow cone makers are machines to produce ice products, topped with flavored syrup and normally served in a cup. However, ice shavers and snow cone makers differ in terms of ice products and price. To distinguish these two machines, follow the below steps: ❖ Try to see the final product of each machine. Ice shavers usually produce ice that is fine, fluffy and light. Ice shavers’ ice is sometimes called Hawaiian ice or snowballs. Ice shavers use cube ice or block ice to produce snowballs. On the other hand, the ice produced by snow cone makers is coarse and chunky. Snow cones’ products are also more granular in texture. ❖ Try to notice how the syrup flows into the ice. The ice produced by an ice shaver makes the syrup stick on it, whereas the ice product of snow cone makers makes syrup flow down directly to the bottom, creating the coldest and refreshing drink, along with a chilly snack. ❖ See how much ice product they can produce. Ice shavers can shave up to 500 pounds of ice every hour, whereas 40 pounds of cube ice can produce 120 six-ounce snow cone cups using a snow cone maker. ❖ See if there is a storage area. Snow cone makers usually have removable ice cube compartment that is designed for easy cleaning. Unlike snow cones, ice shavers do not have a storage area. Its product is dispensed directly into the cup. ❖ Check the machinery and the price of the two icemakers. Ice shavers tend to be large, heavy and complex. They function and operate differently from snow cone makers, due to the fact that snow cone makers are easy to operate, lighter and less complex. In addition, snow cone makers are much cheaper compared with ice shavers. Before you buy an icemaker, choose the right machinery that you think suits your need.
