Here’s some interesting soft serve mix trivia for you…
- When given a choice, consumers will choose soft serve mix 7 out of 10 times over hard ice cream.
- While many ice cream products have a fat content of between 10 and 18 percent, soft serve mix fat levels are usually between 3 and 6 percent.
- Aside from the lower fat content and higher temperature than hard ice cream, the main reason soft serve mix is, well, soft, is because it contains a lot more air than traditional ice cream. Called “overrun,” it’s what makes soft serve so fluffy, compared to a “super premium” ice cream which has a very low overrun.
- A typical soft serve mix cone has 35% air (overrun). So, a 4-ounce soft serve mix cone by weight will appear to be about 6 ounces soft serve mix cone by volume.
