Just because you may be stuck inside this summer doesn’t mean you can’t still have one of the ultimate hot-weather treats. Online retailer Firebox is selling a home Slush Puppie Machine that will turn your favorite juices and more into a frozen treat that’s just like the ones you bought at the gas station on long road trips as a kid. And it’s less than $50!

This Slush Puppie Machine isn’t much larger than your regular countertop blender and will easily sit atop your counter in the kitchen or on an outdoor table by the pool, perhaps. That way, you won’t have to reach far to create an icy treat to sip on in the heat!

According to the product description, all you will need are ice, table salt and a liquid — juice, syrup or vodka (for the adults out there), for example — to create a delicious slushie treat.

The Slush Puppie Machine retails for $48.99, and considering how much use you’ll probably get out of this thing during the summer months, it just might be worth every penny. Plus, it’s colorful and has the iconic Slush Puppie dog right on the label.

Based on the reviews at Firebox, which are all perfect so far, people seem to love how quickly and evenly this machine whips up ice for delicious slushies.

“Fantastic machine. Very easy to use and it makes great-tasting slushes very quickly,” one buyer wrote.

Another reviewer joked that the treats are great, but you may not remember them the next day, depending on which ingredients you use. “It’s good with vodka I think, I don’t remember much, it spins,” the succinct review reads.

If you’re looking to get one for yourself, Firebox is sold out at the moment but expects to have more in stock on June 2, 2020.

Firebox isn’t the only retailer carrying kitchen gadgets that will help keep you cool this summer, either. You can also find slushie machines and snow cone makers online through Amazon.

The Nostalgia Vintage Snow Cone Maker is sure to hit the spot. It gets ice to the right consistency to shape perfectly molded snow cones. It’s available for about $40 on Amazon:

There’s also this Margaritaville Bahamas Frozen Concoction Maker with a No-Brainer Mixer, which is far from your average blender. It will shave and blend ice to create the perfect consistency for pitchers of frozen margaritas, daiquiris and more this summer.

It’s available from several sellers, starting at $236, on Amazon:

Once you’ve picked out a machine that will help you make slushies all summer long, you’ll have to test out recipes for wine slushies, frozen blue lemonade vodka slushies, Coke slushies, and so much more.

Or better yet, why not try them all?!
