Summer is when the sunglasses and sunscreen come out – and ice consumption doubles. Having the right type of ice for customer’s favorite drinks will keep them coming back for more. Manitowoc Ice offers two types of chewable ice for beverages – nugget and crushed, while Manitowoc’s flake ice keeps fruit and salad presentations looking fresh and desirable.
Chewable Nugget Ice
Manitowoc Ice offers two types of chewable nugget ice – regular and tubular. Regular nugget ice has a softer, chewable texture but is hard enough to be dispensed without hand scooping. Small pieces range from 3/8” to ½” in width and length. Tubular nugget ice also has a soft, chewable texture with good cooling properties. Cylindrical shaped nugget with 5/8” diameter and about 1” in length. It is ideal for dispensing applications, reducing the potential for congealing ice and minimizing drink dilution.
