An icy cool treat!
There's nothing more refreshing than a cup of freezing snow, covered in our delicious flavouring. Raspberry, Blue Heaven, Cola, Lime, Tropical Fruit Juice and more!
Thirst-quenching Snow Cones are the perfect refreshment for all special events, especially during those warm summer days, when we supply the coolest cones in town.
Depending on the size of the event, Snow Cones may be available on a Share of Profit basis. Otherwise, we can supply and operate our Snow Cone Stall on a "pay-per-cone" format. You tell us how many Snow Cones are needed on the day, and we'll do the rest - no mess, no fuss!

Snow Cone Requirements
With each hire of the Snow Cone machine, you will need to organise the following:
- One heavy duty power lead
- Access to a single phase power point no more than 25m from the power source, & that is NOT shared with other appliances (the Snow Cone machine draws about 7 amps)
- Portashade or Ezi Up style marquee
- Table & Table cloth
- Bucket of water & cleaning cloth
- Signage - a serving of Fairy Floss normally retails for $3.00
- Cups - smaller the better - plastic or foam are normally cheapest. Paper cones look great though are expensive and leak during summer
- Flavours: we use Tristrams from Trisco Foods - ph (07) 3718 5800. Alternately, Gold Medal Products have a wide range of carnival food supplies. Some Slush cordials are ok, which can be purchased from Coles & Woolworths
- The most popular flavours are Rasberry, Lime, Blue Heaven & Cola (in this order)
- Spoon Straws
- Float & cash box
- Disposable Gloves
- Ice - Party Ice is best. An average fete will go through around 80kgs. Snow Cones sell very well in summer. Not so popular in winter or at evening events.
- Plungers or something to apply the flavour with. I have seen schools use the tops of Popper bottles, or cordial bottles with a small hole drilled in the cap.
- Esky - 2 or more large Eskys required to store the ice
- A clean hammer (in plastic bag?) to help break up the ice
- Volunteers to operate - no experience necessary
