Trip-Planning KBIS 2011 - Scotsman Ice Systems

If you've ever lived in the South, been to a Sonic Drive-In or a Parker's Convenience Store, you know what Chewy Ice is.

Some folks call it "nugget ice":

I have fond memories of this type of ice(it's made from water frozen in a refrigerated cylinder, then pushed through holes by an auger). It was the ice from my elementary school and church fellowship hall. I guess I just assumed that every one's school and church had the same ice we did!

Sonic Drive-In was an early adopter of Scotsman Ice machines and it's easily one of the best parts of a Cherry Limeade.

Word is Scotsman Ice will show a residential "chewy ice" machine at KBIS. Naturally, I'll be there. They better have samples. A 15" Brilliance Nugget Ice Machine will easily be one of the highlights of the show for me- can't wait to figure out how I can have one of these gems at home!

Scotsman Ice Systems will be at booth C4222. Remember, if they have sample of that ice... I won't be too far away. 


  1. Nick, you have to get me information about this one! I will sell my youngest daughter to get one of these! Well, not really, but you understand! I buy Sonic ice by the bag and keep it at my place. We buy it for family gatherings... my mother and aunt both loved it. So don't forget to get extra literature at this one!

  2. HA! I'll get all the info you could imagine, Brenda.

    Keep your kid, though... ;-)

  3. Hoping you have super much fun!!
