Shaved Ice Toppings: Marshmallow Cream

Marshmallow cream is a popular topping item in many areas (especially Louisiana and Mississippi), however can be quite frustrating to add to shaved ice. Prices range from 25 to 50 cents per dose. Your cost for a 7 ounce jar is usually $1.50. Larger quantities are available from suppliers if needed (case sales, larger jars).

Our suggestion is to purchase a couple of jars and add it to the list of available toppings. If it starts to sell well and is well received by your customers, then investigate purchasing marshmallow cream in larger quantities in order to lower your cost per serving and increase your profitability.
