Soft serve ice cream machines love the holiday season as much as shoppers love hitting the mall on Black Friday. While it may be true that the warmest months of the year typically cause customers to migrate towards restaurants and ice cream shops that offer soft serve ice cream machines, the holidays may be the second busiest time of year for soft serve.
This can be attributed to several reasons including the following:
Shopping malls often feature frozen yogurt shops, ice cream shops and restaurants that offer soft serve ice cream machines. Each year in the United States, the day after Thanksgiving is typically the busiest shopping day of the year. The busy shopping season continues through the first week of January – which means there many weeks in which shoppers are out and about at all times of the day. And we all know what happens when people shop all day during the holiday season! They get very hungry. Just as shoppers are willing to spend money on gifts of all shapes and sizes, they are also willing to spend money on food and refreshments. If there is a soft serve ice cream machine in sight, shoppers are happy to take a break and purchase a treat.
The holiday season includes holiday meals. Many people that host a Thanksgiving feast at their house want to figure out ways to make the meal and dessert preparation easier. This is where soft serve ice cream machines come into play. Nothing is easier than asking someone to visit the local frozen yogurt or ice cream shop to pick up a container of ice cream that came from a soft serve ice cream machine. The cold treat can easily be served with apple or pumpkin pie!
People tend to gain weight during the holiday season. As hard as many people try to restrict their eating during the holiday season, it can be difficult to resist all of the candy, chocolate and other delicious treats that are often readily available. To help offset the massive amount of calories people eat during holiday meals, soft serve is often the dessert of choice. Soft serve ice cream machines can produce frozen yogurt and soft serve that is lower in calories than traditional hard-packed ice cream.
Soft serve ice cream machines are a favorite all year long. But during the holiday season, they can be especially popular – especially if they are filled with flavors that are synonymous with the holidays. For example, Simply Swirled Seriously Fun Frozen Yogurt offers the following flavors at this time of year: Chocolate Mint, Egg Nog, Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough, Spiced Apple Pie, Old Fashioned Candy Cane and Pumpkin Pie.
