At this point the trailer is torn apart. I will be starting work early in the spring/later winter when it warms up a little (I live in Canada). I will post photos as progression takes place!

I'm building a shave ice trailer!

I had my first summer selling shave ice with very decent success. I went to events and set up at a local beach with a tent, table, and small flat trailer to tow it all. (primitive though, and a LOT of work to pack and unpack every day) Now I am taking it to the next level and buying a Boler style si...

Re: Making Ice Blocks

Hi Diane

We use a Snowizard freezer which has metal moulds that freeze 9 blocks in about 12 hours. Our ice typically comes out milky/clear. It is filtered water from our town. What is your trick to having clear ice? Would love to hear new ideas :)

Re: Urgent: Help with HTK benzoate please!!

Hi, sorry for the late response but we didn't get your email. We use to ship our preservatives in liquid form however it was just all water weight which wastes money on shipping and it also causes leakage so we changed all the preservative to powder form where you can just mix it yourself. The inst...

I ordered 1 gallon of Sodium benzoate and 1 gallon of citric acid from HTK (shaveicesupplies.com) and the info on the website says its in liquid form already, but they were shipped to me as a dry powder , and all the ratios are for liquid only. I cannot find any water ratios on how to mix this dry s...

Re: Getting Custom Labels made?

Turns out we bought some "water resistant durable" labels from Avery Labels, my partner did up some nice designs on her computer and then we had them laser printed at a UPS store. They turned out really really great. We use glass bottles and our syrups are on a table in front of customers ...

Re: Getting Custom Labels made?

We checked out a few local places and so far no success. What's your contacts information, just so we can get a rough idea of what he's all about?

Re: Clumpy Ice technique

Hi all, At ~ 4:40 into this video, the person mentions generating 'clumpy ice' as an intentional technique. I couldn't find anything googling on it. Does anyone know how you do it and when it would be desired? Certain syrups or something? I.e. both the pros and cons? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Re: Getting Custom Labels made?

Just find a local graphic design/sign company that has the ability to print on vinyl. I have a contact who does mine and is excellent if you want his info. He is fast, a great communicator, and can do anything you need. He is in Indiana, but shipping on some labels will be minimal. Sure if he has a...

Getting Custom Labels made?

Hey guys. Trying to figure out a place to get custom labels made but so far not having much luck. Best bet we were thinking was buying custom bumper stickers and slapping them on the bottles. Does anyone have any good ideas? We need something waterproof and durable with all the handling. Another mem...
