When we were asked if we would like to review a slushy maker I know I was the most excited person in the house. I remember begging my mum on hot sunny days for a slushy on the walk home from school, in-fact I would say that they become a slight addiction, so I was very intrigued with the prospect of being able to make them easily at home.
I eagerly awaited the postman and was very excited when this box arrived.
What’s In The Box
You are provided with one slushy maker, one lid, a spoonstraw and an instruction sheet. I was impressed with the inclusion of the spoonstraw as I remember that eating the slushy off of the straw, rather than drinking it, was the best part.
The slushy maker is made of a rubber cup that has a freezable lining inside, this can easily be removed from washing. It is easy to assemble with the rings that hold it all in place.
The slushy maker is placed in the freezer, it is recommended that this is done for 4 – 6 hours but we did this overnight.
When you are ready for your frozen treat, you simply pour in your favourite CHILLED drink and SQUEEZE!
Within minutes your slushy is ready.

Our Verdict I love this, I made it with coke as that is the flavour I always picked growing up, and with one taste I was transported back to my youth. It tasted just as I remember them and after Ethan got used to how cold the slushy was he also quite enjoyed it. Darren tried an orange one and he highly recommends it, he wants to try one made with pink milk next. I think that this product would have saved my mum quite a bit of cash and her ears from my begging if this was available to buy when I was younger. I can imagine this being used as an after school treat on hot sunny days in many households.
The CHILLFACTOR Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker is from Character Options and it has a RRP of £12.99.
