ICEE Facts

  1. The ICEE Company began as ICEE of Los Angeles in 1967.
  2. Over the next two decades, the company expanded in the western United States and eventually became ICEE USA
  3. The ICEE company was acquired by J&J Snack Foods in 1987.
  4. The ICEE Company sells approximately 500 million ICEE drinks each year – enough to fill 141 Olympic-size swimming pools.
  5. ICEE’s first flavor ever was Cola.
  6. Carbonation makes ICEE fluffy. The mixture of syrup, water and CO2 gets combined and frozen in a chamber within the equipment. Then the equipment makes and dispenses the product.
  7. Diet or sugar-free ICEE’s are currently not available. Sugar actually plays two roles in the production of ICEE. First, it helps make ICEE taste great and second, it acts as a “freezing control.” Without the exact amount of sugar, ICEE would freeze up too hard and would not dispense from the machine to your cup.
