Slushtopia Slushie Mixes by Blender Boyz

High Quality concentrated (5+1) premium slush mixes by Slushtopia (Blender Boyz). 

In 1970, Cincinnatian Will Radcliff was at a Chicago trade show when he made a culinary discovery: a slush machine. The machine, which was manufactured by Stoelting and had been on the market for decades, didn’t have a name or any marketing materials. But Radcliff, who had already found success as a peanut salesman, saw an opportunity. “I saw there was nothing being done to make it take off,” Radcliff said in 1998. “There was no magic, as I say.”

One evening, Radcliff enlisted the help of his mother and sister to brainstorm some names for his would-be slushy drink. Over a six-pack of beer, they wrote down a handful of possibilities on a brown paper bag and came up with the idea for Slush Puppie, which would feature a cartoon dog as their mascot and logo. Shortly thereafter, Radcliff invested all the money he had (a sum total of $970) and founded the company.

Though other iced beverages such as ICEE already existed, Slush Puppie was different because it was a non-carbonated drink created with flavored syrups and water that are mixed together in a machine and then frozen.

Radcliff’s flavored ice pellets beverage gambit took off and by 1999 sales had escalated to $25 million a year—that’s a lot of slush! An astute businessman, he eventually parlayed his idea into a global phenomenon; Slush Puppies have found their way into 62 nations, including parts of Africa and Europe, via 650,000 machines. “If it ain’t fun, to hell with it,” was one of Radcliff’s favorite aphorisms, though he admitted to the Cincinnati Enquirer in 1998 that, “It doesn’t always work that way all the time, but that’s what we shoot for.”
