You Can Now Buy Your Own Slush Puppie Machine To Keep You Cool In The Heatwave

You Can Now Buy Your Own Slush Puppie Machine To Keep You Cool In The Heatwave

When you were younger, you knew it was a good day when your parents bought you a Slush Puppie.

The delicious, icy nectar drink would leave us bouncing off the walls and would be the perfect accompaniment to a mid-summer day as your mum dragged you around a shopping centre.

Remember that refreshing feeling?! Well you don't have to anymore, as you can now buy your very own Slush Puppie machine off Amazon.

Sure, in normal life we might struggle to rationalise buying a slushy maker as an adult, but we're in a pandemic, and normal rules do not apply anymore.

Plus, did you know there's a heatwave coming up this week? It would be rude not to.

The nostalgic piece of kit - by the original flavoured ice drink brand - also comes with blue raspberry and red cherry syrup depending on whether you prefer a lurid blue or red tongue. Ah, memories...

You'll also get branded Slush Puppie straws and cups, so you'll be transported back a 90s shopping centre or cinema in an instant.

To use it, you simply add ice into the top of the machine, add your syrup (or both if you're a maverick for a funky purple concoction) and let it do the rest of the work.

The Slush Puppie Slushie Machine Set costs £49.99 on Amazon with free delivery.

If you're more of a do-it-yourself kind of person, we've also learnt about a way to make your own Tango Ice Blasts (AKA the modern day Slush Puppie equivalent) at home.

Posted by @caughtsnackin - the king of indulgent lockdown cooks - on TikTok, the recipe requires just a few ice lollies, some food colouring, some Tango and a blender.

You can read about how to make them here or watch the video.

Either way, we'll be drinking slushies all summer long...
