Customer questions about this product

What is the difference between an italian ice, a slushy, and a snow cone?
An italian ice, also known as a water ice, is very smooth and its flavoring is mixed into the ice before or during freezing. A slushy, also known as an Icee or granita, typically comes in icy liquid form, and the flavor is added before the freezing process.

For a crunchier product, snow cones use larger, shaved ice, that is generally flavored at the point of sale.
Do I need to keep this product refrigerated? Or refrigerate after opening?
