Everything You Need to Know About Packaged Ice

You can’t beat the convenience of packaged ice. But not all packaged ice is created equal.

But It’s Just Ice, Why Should I Care Who I Buy Ice From?

We know what you’re thinking…ice is just frozen water, so what’s the big deal? Why should I care what bagged ice I buy? Here’s the difference: Apple Ice is International Packaged Ice Association (IPIA) certified. That means that we produce quality bagged ice and ice cube products that meet rigorous sanitation standards required by IPIA. Here’s how IPIA explains it: “Packaged Ice is a Food product and if not produced and handled to strict sanitation standards, it can become contaminated with harmful pathogens that could make one sick.” From backyard barbecues, to camping trips and birthday parties, having pure, high-quality packaged ice to keep your drinks cold and maintain your food at a safe and ideal temperature is a must.

3 Benefits of Apple Ice Bagged Ice Here are a few of the benefits our packaged ice products:

  • It’s Convenient You can only make so many ice cubes yourself! Don’t waste your time filling and refilling ice cube tray after ice cube tray. Save time and aggravation by picking up a few bags of our packaged ice.

  • Better Taste We only use naturally purified water that results in crystal clear cubes. Making ice cubes from the water from your faucet just doesn’t have the same taste. Plus, it can result in cloudy ice cubes.

  • We Offer a Variety of Bagged Ice Products Our bagged ice comes in different sizes and shapes for whatever your needs are. Crushed ice, cubed ice, sticks, balls, blocks or custom cubes….we can do it all.
