Italian Ice – What’s in a name?

Within the United States: in Philadelphia it’s called Italian Water Ice, in New York it's Italian Ice, in Alabama it's Greek Ice, in Massachusetts it's Slush, in fancy restaurants it's sorbet, in Amusement Parks it's Frozen Lemonade (even if its a different flavor).
There are 3 Tiers of Italian Ice:
1- Basic recipe PLUS fresh fruit.  Just throw frozen fruit into your batch machine with your other ingredients. You may also need to add an additional flavoring agent depending on the type of fruit used.
2 - Basic recipe using a Flavor Base. Bases provide more stability in the consistency of the final product, and are great for hard-to-produce flavors like the popular Mango.   
3 - Basic recipe using only an Extract or flavor Concentrate. Extracts are usually reserved for fruit flavors like Watermelon or Honey Dew, artificial flavors like Cotton Candy or Bubble Gum & Natural flavors like Mint or Basil.
Business Tip:  Different regions and countries demand different flavors. Know your customers before you turn on your batch freezers!
