Gold Medal Flossugar is made from a special sugar - not too fine, not too coarse. Colors have been "vividized" so that you get a bright color, but color concentrations do not exceed the limits set down by the FDA. It's packed in sealed 3.25 lb. cartons. Simply open the box and pour into the spinner head. No messy mixing, so inventory is easy and more accurate. Each carton makes approximately 60-70 cones and each case makes approximately 360-420 cones. PLEASE INDICATE FLAVOR CHOICE.
