If the weather the past few days has been any indication of how hot this summer is going to get, a Slush Puppie can be just the thing to cool you down. Kids and adults alike enjoy a Slush Puppie with its amazing flavor and texture. A Slush Puppie has two major components, the base and the flavoring. A Slush Puppies is made by throwing water in to a Slush Puppie machine and then adding the Slush Puppie mix which is then frozen. This creates a mixture resulting in pellets of ice in a sweet liquid.

In 1970, Will Radcliff, a Cincinnatian, was at a Chicago trade show when he discovered a slush machine which was manufactured by Stoelting and had been on the market for decades. It didn’t have a name or any marketing materials but Radcliff saw an opportunity. Over a six-pack of beer, Radcliff enlisted the help of his mother and sister to brainstorm some names for his would-be slushy drink. They wrote down a handful of possible names and came up with the idea for Slush Puppie, which would feature a cartoon dog as their mascot and logo.

Through other iced beverages such as ICEE already existed, Slush Puppie was different because it was a non-carbonated drink created with flavored mix and water that are mixed together in a machine and the frozen. Radcliff’s flavored ice pellets beverage gambit took off and by 1999 sales had escalated to $25 million a year. When Radcliff started the Slush Puppie enterprise, only four flavors were offered: cherry, grape, orange, and lemon-lime.
