Love Slurpee, but hate driving to the 7-11 where all the neighborhood hoodlums gather? Until they let you order Slurpees from the internet and deliver right to your door, you know you’re stuck having to do that every time you get a hankering for a tall cup of those slushy beverages. That is, until this 7-Eleven Home Slurpee Maker came along.
A mini-slushy machine, it lets you make a proper Slurpee right from the comfort of your home. Just throw ice, fruit juice, soda (diet sodas won’t work though — artificial sweeteners don’t blend well), salt, flavorings and whatever other ingredient you want, then turn the crank on top to begin dispensing.
We’re not exactly sure how the 7-Eleven Slurpee Maker works but from the images, it looks like you’ll have to turn the crank to get the slushy action going (the website doesn’t say otherwise). Chances are, this plugs into a wall outlet and does the slushing automatically, with the crank serving as control for the dispenser, which should make a lot more sense.
Even if you’re not a big Slurpee fan, this thing should be the perfect device for making slushy cocktails. I mean, would you rather spend the night sipping on another rum and coke mix when you can be enjoying alcohol brainfreeze with a slushy rum and coke?
The 7-Eleven Slurpee Maker is available from Thinkgeek, priced at $49.99. Set comes with plastic cups, straws and a coupon for a free Slurpee at 7-Eleven. Seriously.
