As a kid I always used to love slush drinks and now my son loves them as well. Now the weather is starting to get a bit warmer it is nice to have a cold drink when when it gets a little hot. I was recently sent the ChillFactor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker to try out. This is an easy to use slushy maker that does not use batteries and even kids can use. I was delighted but I was not at all sure that it would actually work.
Inside the box is a squeeze cup with a lid and a straw that also acts as a spoon. This one is a nice green colour but it also available in red, blue and yellow. The outside cup is made from a very soft plastic that is very squishy.
The lid unscrews easily and inside there is a plastic liner. This is filled with some sort of liquid. The idea is that the cup is placed inside the freezer for four to six hours until the inside liner is frozen.
Once it is frozen you then pour your chosen drink into the slushy maker. The drink needs to be cool before you pour it in so I chilled a jug of orange in the fridge. The orange is then poured into the slushy maker, the lid screwed on and the cup is squeezed. Amazingly it really did work, as the cup is squeezed you can see the ice forming and you end up with a cup full of slush.
We were really impressed at the result and it was so easy to use. My son loved making his own slush and tried a number of different drinks which all worked well. The cup is really easy to clean as well, you can unscrew the top and the inner lining comes out allowing it to be washed thoroughly.
