I have always loved getting a slushy from a local shop and it always tasted the same every time I went. Exciting colored shaved ice that tasted so amazing I wanted more and more. The Wish Factory is making wishes come true with their Icee Slushy Maker! It comes in the box completely put together, just add the cup, ice and grind. How simple is that? I had my husband do the first set of slushies and they turned out just as I pictured them to. Of course, when I went to make a slushy it was difficult and wouldn’t cooperate for me. Then again my husband lost the directions and I had no directions on how to do it. He finally helped me out and it was incredibly easy.
Grinding the ice can be difficult as it does get stuck together and won’t work. You have to take the top off again after a while to push the ice around so it unsticks. Finding the clasp to hook the lid back on is hard to see so of course it took me a few minutes to actually put the machine back together. After a few more minutes I finally had enough ice to pour the slushy mix over it (which is combined with slushy powder and two tablespoons of water). The ice melted pretty quick under the liquid so I had to grind more ice over it. Mix it. Then grind more ice. It took quite a while to make one cup of shaved ice but the results were delicious! It actually tasted like a delicious slushy I would get at the store. Not to mention my daughter loves it. She wanted to sit out on the porch and eat her yummy cup full of Icee slushy!
Icee, despite being difficult every once in a while, really is a fun machine for little slushies. I will be making a slushy every week as a treat for the family. It also comes with cute little cups and spoons too! Who doesn’t want a slushy machine in their own house? No more going to the store for a slushy!
