How Much Syrup Should Be Used on Shaved Ice Cups?

One of the most common mistakes shaved ice business owners make is using too much syrup. This not only reduces your profit margin, but it often makes the shaved ice too sweet. At, we tell owners that you want customers to eat the shaved ice with a spoon, not drink it with a straw. The more syrup you apply does not mean your shaved ice will taste better. Unflavored ice or white spots in your shaved ice cup is okay. Yes, white spots without flavor showing on them is OKAY. If you give the ice around 15 to 30 seconds, the syrup will soak into the ice throughout the cup. The chart below will give you a good guideline for the proper amount of syrup to use for each size cup.
