Our Italian Ice cans are made of cardboard and are assembled by hand at our manufacturing plant in Iselin, New Jersey.
Not only are our cans biodegradable (GREEN), they also will increase your bottom line over Italian ice in plastic cans. Here is why-
Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice is FLASH FROZEN in our freezer immediately after being made. The frozen air from the FLASH FREEZER actually permeates the surface of the cardboard can causing it to freeze faster. Plastic cans, on the other hand, do not not have any air permeation and therefore freeze slower than cardboard cans. This causes the Italian Ice to separate from the flavoring and leaves a gooey, syrupy unusable 2-3 inches of product at the bottom of the plastic can.
A couple of inches doesn’t sound like a lot of wasted product so I thought I would demonstrate to you how much this is actually costing you.
Each inch of Italian Ice = 6.5 servings (3 scoops per serving)
2 inches of gooey, syrupy unusable Italian Ice on the bottom of a plastic Italian Ice can equals 13 wasted servings.
Those 13 wasted servings out of a plastic can x $2/serving = $26.00
Those 13 wasted servings out of a plastic can x $3/serving = $39.00
You then would have to add $39 to whatever you are paying for your Italian Ice in plastic cans and that is the true cost of your Italian Ice.
