Re: Hi! Newbie here with a question if anyone is using Sno Shack

Hello David, welcome to the forum. Sounds like you have a good location and plan. Next would be to find the right product. Sno Shack is a known company but they mainly sell sno cones.

Re: Needing an opinion

Re: Honey bees

I agree with Bruce. We already have little bees as there is already, killing more wouldn't do any good. The fans could work or putting a screen over the syrups. Nature is something we all have to deal with especially during the summer months! In Hawaii we don't have as much bees but we got tons of i...

Re: WHAT ABOUT STRAWS AND CUPS?

With all the new eco rules and regulations, we have been promoting paper cups as well. Now we all know paper cups tend to be bland which is why we designed our "Ocean Cups" for our clients to have them stand out from standard single color cups. As for the terrible single use straws, we been recommen...

Re: About 99Designs

Thats what we did with some of our vans. We sent the graphic to a wrap shop to get it wrapped. It was really expensive. A simple wrap for a Chevy Express van cost over 1,000 and that is only using a few colors.

Re: How to Cook Tapioca Pearls

We use to carry this item. You can usually find it online, however make sure they are fresh. The tapioca balls are easy to make but have a very short shelf life

Re: New Hatsuyuki HC-8E shaving metal pieces

Metal shaving could be a bad bearing. You would need to take apart the machine and replace it, that will usually fix it.

Re: Shelf Life

Concentrates normally last one to two years in room temperature. In general, they do not spoil like syrup does but they do lose color and flavor over time.

Re: Does anyone use Coffee Creamer for their "cream"?

I believe you could but the taste might not be the same if you use something like half and half. I would use evaporated milk if condensed milk doesnt work. You can also use milk powder as well.
