Snow Cone Simple Syrup is commonly called or referred to as Sugar Water. Ralph's SnoBall Supply uses 100% pure cane sugar in all of its syrup products. Our Shaved Ice Simple Syrup Recipe is blended in the tradition of Hawaiian and New Orleans style shaved ice flavor base. It has a 6 Month shelf life and it does not require refrigeration. Opening the bottle does not shorten the shelf life. Because it is made with pure cane sugar, It makes excellent snow cone syrup. However, it can be used to sweeten iced tea and other beverages. Actually it is the prefered sweetener for cold beverages because unlike sugar, it mixes easily with cold liquids and it does not crystalize as readily as granulated sugar.
