      1. I haven't seen a Slush Puppy machine in ages. It did exist in NYC back in the late 80s, early 90s for sure. Not sure if it's still around.

        1. do some mr. softee's sell these?

          1. The only Slush Puppies I used to have were at Dresen's in East Hampton in the 80s. Large round ice crystals, right? Some of the Clearview Cinemas in Manhattan have Icees. Though, might I suggest you check out Quickly on Grand, just east of Bowery? It's an Asian slush drink chain which is quite good. Nothing like the texture of a SP, but lots of flavors, very tasty.
