We all remember those big Slush Puppy tanks, churning out blue and red ice; and surely we all remember staring up at said machines with our own, puppy-dog eyes, begging mum for a taste of the sweet, cool, nectar - “oh, pleeeeasseeee mum, just one more!” Yes, yes, we’ve grown up since those days, we don’t need Slush Puppies anymore - but as we know better than anyone, there’s a BIG difference between needing and wanting - and there are few things in life we want more than to be able to make Slush Puppies at home. That’s right - in celebration of the Pup’s 50th, the official brand has brought out a range of Slush Puppie making cups, syrups (including four, brand new flavours), and even those churning machines - this is what dreams are made of!
Blue Raspberry, Red Cherry and Green Apple were the staples of childhood; now its time to welcome to the gang a new line-up of flavours: Lime, Tropical, Purple Grape, and Cream Soda. What do they taste like? Well, that would be telling (but yes, they are as heavenly as they sound). Grab a bottle of syrup - either individually, or in gift sets of two or four - and a Slush Puppie Making Cup, whack the magical concoction into the freezer and, voila, your very own homemade Slush Puppie, on tap!
Feeling fancy? Splash out on the original machine and set it a-whirring through the long, summer days. The perfect gift for grown-up-kids, we’ve all got that certain someone in our lives who would go bananas for one of these - question is, once you’ve invested, can you really bear to part with the miraculous, childhood relic…? (don’t worry, we won’t tell if you do decide to keep if for yourself).
Still want to reminisce? Have read of Garin Pirnia’s ‘A Brief History of the Slush Puppie’ - we’re sure you’ll be surprised by some of the factoids in there, including the Slush Puppie’s low calorie count! We’ll be slurping away guilt-free, from here on out.
