Family Review: The Slush Puppie Machine from Firebox

Review: The Slush Puppie Machine from Firebox


- Advertisement -

As a kid I used to love Slush Puppies, and now you can get a machine of your very own – so here is our review.

This is how Firebox describe it:

“The brightly coloured tongues, the powerful brain freeze, the intoxicating sugar high. Slush Puppies were the sh*t, and now you can make them in the comfort of your own home!

New and improved but still replete with all the authentic retro finishings of the original; this legendary countertop machine will let you churn out fruit Slush Puppies, iced coffees or frozen cocktails to your heart’s content.

Simply load up the drum with ice, table salt (don’t worry, you can’t taste it) and your juice or syrup of choice – then watch in wonder as it pumps out cool slushie delights.”

What’s in the box?

The box contains the Slush Puppie machine, a manual, 4 cups and straws and all the bits to make the machine work.

Final Thoughts

Many, many years ago, back in the 1980’s, Slush Puppies were all the rage. You would use your pocket money, or sometimes your school lunch money to get one, and they were delicious!

Now you can get your very own Slush Puppie machine and have as many drinks as you want!

The machine is really easy to set up – just take it out of the box, plug it in, put the ice in the top, decide how you want the ice crushed up and turn the machine on. The crushed ice will come out the bottom into the jug and then when you are ready you pour the ice into a cup (you get 4 cups and straws supplied if you want that totally authentic feeling).

You’ll also need to buy some syrup if want that true authentic Slush Puppie experience. Firebox sell Cherry and Blue Raspberry but there are also other flavours, including my favourite Cola!

So pour the syrup into the cup (most likely more than you would have got in the cup in the 80’s – it always felt like they never gave you enough) and then drink away! They taste just as good now as they did then.

The Slush Puppie Machine from Firebox is a must have addition to your kitchen, especially if you were like me who drunk them in the 80’s. Great for a hot day, or a cold day – let’s be honest, we drank them all year round! What flavour was your favourite? I’m off for another drink.

The Slush Puppie Machine from Firebox is available now priced £39.99.
