There is no doubt. Ice cream or – even better – gelato, thanks to its amazing artisan soul, is the most beloved dessert of all. According to ExportUSA, 90% of Americans in the United States are enthusiastic consumers of ice cream. This is not a seasonal trend. A whopping 70% of Americans eat ice cream all year long. Many considerations affect ice cream sales, and one is certainly quality. Ask any ice cream manufacturer and the answer to what it takes to be competitive on the market is not just following the latest trends in products, but also relying on the right ice cream making machines to produce deliciousness. Teknoice offers a full range of ice cream making machines that can be fully customized, providing that “extra” edge to stand out from the crowd. 

One thing is sure: with the right equipment, ice cream makers can create ice cream that will never get out of fashion. In fact, they are even setting new trends by adding new health-conscious choices to timeless and everlasting preferred flavors, such as vanilla (#1 in the USA) and, no surprise here, chocolate. 

After all, everyone in the world loves ice cream, and the industry enjoys a vast market. In the United States in particular, the ice cream industry plays a significant role in American life and society. A product consumed by the average American in quantities of more than 23 lbs. a year takes on the part of certainty in life. However, boring never cut it for anyone. Thus, innovation in the world of ice cream-making is a must. Americans love new ice cream flavors to come around at least seasonally, and novelty products that enter the market attract attention every time. 

Therefore, whether American consumers buy ice cream at the supermarket or gelato at a small artisan shop, what counts is the product quality and vision. This is true especially for ice cream on a stick to enjoy alone or share with family and friends. Bringing joy to kids and adults alike, ice cream on a stick is the embodiment of fun thanks to the creative combinations of flavors, unique shapes (which may also feature the shapes of characters dear to children), coatings, swirls, and sweet cores of delicious ingredients. Who can resist such delights? 

Following trends, however, is of paramount importance to be successful in the market. Therefore, any company, new or established, that operates in this industry needs a production line that meets exactly the needs of its products and that can produce ice cream as envisioned. To meet these needs, Teknoice has developed an entire ice cream stick production line that can be fully customized to give shape – literally – to any ice cream on a stick your company has in mind. 

All ice cream on a stick manufacturing equipment by Teknoice can be adapted and personalized to the smallest detail, including layout, so you do not need to worry about space. 

Ice Cream on a Stick and the limitless options of imagination

Ice cream on a stick can take endless possible shapes and feature limitless flavors, coatings, and details. Spiral ice cream, anyone? How about a slice of ice cream cake on a stick? Or why not indulge in that crunchy coating with delicious nuts? Of course, sorbets, frozen yogurt, and ice cream made with innovative types of milk, such as almond milk, rice milk, and coconut milk, to name just a few, are all the rage too.

In a recent survey, Ibis World reported that ice cream makers had seen a 40% increase in demand for premium ice cream and 15% for sorbets. This is also valid for ice cream on a stick that can incorporate another popular ingredient: fruit, such as strawberries.

Expressing one’s vision and producing creative products that match the market demand requires the right equipment. For this reason, Teknoice has designed ice cream on a stick manufacturing equipment that is customizable to meet the requirements of each customer. Teknoice loves to reiterate that not one piece of its ice cream on a stick manufacturing equipment is the same. Talk about freedom of customization…
