Cosner’s Ice is made with bottle quality water where as your refrigerator ice is made directly from the tap. Average refrigerator ice carries a cloudy appearance and may have a foul aftertaste. Cosner’s Ice nuggets are crystal clear and have no aftertaste. You can test this yourself by leaving a few ice cubes in a glass to melt. When they melt, taste the water and compare it to that of Cosner’s; the difference is clear!

While there is no scientific answer to this question, there are some general guidelines for figuring out how much ice you’ll need. If you’re having a ‘non cocktail’ event, cooling food and beverages, 2 pounds per person is a good amount. If you’re having a ‘cocktail’ event, cooling alcoholic beverages, mixing ice in drinks, 5 pounds per person is a good amount. These amounts are general guidelines and are not based on any scientific formula.
You can also use our Ice Calculatorto find out how much you will need for your event.
