It’s that time of the year to think about sunnier days.

Whether that’s serving scoops at events, or perhaps branching out to make the most of brighter, longer days by adding iced snacks to your product line.

Here’s some tips and trends on branding, colours, presentation, flavours & ingredients that we’ve spotted for the coming season – but first, some reasons to profit from frozen snacks if you don’t already:

They All Scream For … Reasons to Serve Ice Cream

( … as if you needed any)

  1. Colorful – people buy with their eyes. (Or the eyes of their children!)
  2. Popular – nearly everyone loves ice cream!
  3. Low Cost of Entry – it’s easy and affordable to setup or add to your current business – especially if you already sell chilled drinks and snacks.
  4. Positive – because it’s associated with good times. Ice cream is great for your brand image, especially if served in a sustainable cup.

Premium Look & Textures

Á la carte toppings and floral-style rolled ice cream trimmings, indulgent ingredients and flavours add to the progression of the artisanal movement. High-end sorbets and shave ice trends continue.

Brûlée and dry ice can still be seen at the cutting edge parlours.
