FAQs

What makes Frosty Fruit slushy healthy?
Frosty Fruit is made from 100% fruit juice and has no added sugar.

What kind of sugar does Frosty Fruit contain?
The sugar is fructose, which is the sweetest tasting of all the natural sugars.  Fructose is found in fruits and honey.  Fructose is known as the fruit sugar.  It also has been referred to as levulose. Fructose is 1.5x times as sweet as sucrose.  The fructose in Frosty Fruit comes from de-ionized apple and grape juice concentrate.  In effect our product contains essentially the same total sugar and sugar type as an equal amount of fresh or frozen apple or grape juice.

How do you make Frosty Fruit slushy?
Frosty Fruit comes packaged in concentrate form in 1/2 gallon bottles. Pour the concentrate into the mixing container that we provide and fill the rest of the container with water. Finally, pour the mix into the slushy machine, turn on the power and mixing auger and set the machine to freeze. It will be ready to enjoy in approximately one hour.

How difficult is it to set up and maintain the slushy machine?
Machine setup is very simple, instructions are included with initial delivery and can also be downloaded here.  The slushy machine only requires a standard electrical wall outlet/plug and does NOT require a water line.

Where do most schools sell Frosty Fruit slushies?
Most schools sell slushies either in their cafeteria, in the school store, in the concession stand, and during special events.

We keep running out of product before each student has a chance to purchase one. How can we prevent this?
Make a batch of frozen product first thing in the morning in the machine.  Drain that batch of frozen product into the mixing containers and set aside in the walk in cooler/freezer.  You can do this several times before your meal period begins if you start early.  The product will stay frozen in the walkin cooler long enough to replenish during the upcoming meal period.  Right before lunch,  begin serving drinks into the cups from the frozen product in the mixing containers.  Once you have emptied the mixing containers, begin to serve from the machine like you are currently doing.
