Have you seen the weather? It’s going to get hot and when it does, the retro Slush Puppie Slushie Maker will be your best pal.
At least, it will if you like the idea of fruity ice and bright colours, as well as a distinctly retro way of keeping your body temperature down.
In fact, the machine looks about as 80s as it comes, complete with bold colours and cheesy logo. Mind you, if that’s the route you are going down, it’s pretty much what you want.
As for that machine, it does pretty much what you expect it to, just as long as you read the instructions before use. Basically, you add the syrup and water, along with ice to ‘slush’ it up. It’s not quick and isn’t quiet – but this isn’t an industrial maker, it’s a home one. Allow for that – and the time to make it – and you can have Slush Puppie drinks all summer.
Plenty of syrup flavours to choose from and you can buy the retro cups if you want an authentic drinking experience, although sadly not the original slush mug as far as I can see. But if it’s just the machine you want, that retails for £47.48. Packs with bottles of syrup included are also available online.
