Call the distributor in your state and see where they locally distribute our product and/or if they are open to the public so you can directly buy from them.

DO YOU HOST GROUP TOURS OF THE FACTORY?

We are open Monday-Friday 7AM to 5PM, so please stop by!

 
SINCE YOUR ICES ARE NOW STORED IN PLASTIC CONTAINERS ARE THEY BPA FREE?

Yes, they are BPA Free. The cups are approved by the FDA and are safe to use in the food industry.

 
WHY DOES THAT SUGARY FORMATION OCCUR ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CUP?

The sugary formation on the bottom of the cup is what many claim to be the best accident to happen to ices! The sugary formation occurs when there is an elapse of time from the moment the ices are put into their cups to the moment they are packaged and sent into the freezers. We had thought to freeze our ices quicker to eliminate the sugary formation but most of our consumers enjoyed it so much, they have asked us to make an entire cup filled with just the sugary formation.

 
HOW LONG CAN MARINOS ITALIAN ICE LAST IN THE FREEZER?

It can last up to two years from the day it is made if it has been stored properly.

 
WHICH FLAVOR IS THE HARDEST TO MAKE?

Rainbow! Rainbow is the hardest to make because first the three flavors that make up rainbow; blue gelati, cherry, and lemon, are made separately; then stored in large containers. When the rainbow cups are in place, the three large containers at the same time have to squirt the same amount of ice into the cup in order to achieve a well balance of the three flavors. Once the rainbow ice is in the cup it has to be instantly frozen on the spot to ensure the flavors do not begin to blend together!


HOW MUCH ICE DO YOU PRODUCE IN A YEAR?

40 Million Ices a year! We produce 200 cups a minute which translate to 40, 6pack boxes a minute. However, we have the capability to purpose up to 600 cups a minute if necessary.

 
WHAT IS YOUR MOST POPULAR FLAVOR?

Cherry!
