How Much Ice Do I Need?

You’re planning a party. Everything is set and ready to go, and now you realize that you’re out of Ice. You could rush to the Self-Service Ice Kiosk to stock up on Ditto Ice before guests arrive.


How do you decide how many bags of Ice are needed to chill as well as serve your guests?

The last thing you want is to run out of Ice.

Here is our step-by-step advice when buying Ice for any special event in your life:

  • Consider your guest count. We recommend planning between 1 and 2 pounds of Ice per person, based on the type of event and your purpose behind using Ice.

  • Next, the type of event you’re hosting matters. BBQ, Tailgating, and Wedding events require more Ditto Ice than a simple House party.

  • Answer this - how do you plan to consume your Ice – chilling cans and bottles, or chilling as well as serving the drinks with Ice.

  • Last but not least, don’t cool or open everything at once. Once you chill the beverages, don’t bring them back to room temperature. So, unless you have a great place to store leftover drinks after your special event, be considerate of just how much Ice is used before guests arrive.

Next time you’re planning a party or special event, Don't Forget the Ice, Call Ditto Ice for Delivery!
