Cubed ice is the ice form most commonly associated with beverages, soft drinks and cocktails. Cubed ice comes in three distinct shapes- Half, Full and Regular. Half diced ice fits inside of cups really well. More ice inside of a cup means less soda, juice, tea, lemonade, (ie. beverage product). This means greater savings for restaurant owners and food service establishments. Half diced ice does the job of cooling down the beverage product while still being a small enough ice size for customers to chew on. Regular and Full Diced Ice take a longer time to melt. Regular is slightly larger than full but both have the same shape. They are very popular in bars where the focus is on cooling alcohol but not watering it down. These ice sizes are nice for presentations and for display purposes and are also very functional. They are the preferred ice sizes for people looking to fill up coolers. They are also the preferred ice size for businesses that bag and sell ice for retail.
