Slush Puppies

Does anyone know where to get Slush Puppies in the Bay area? I used to get them at Fred's Food Mart (now Happy's Food Mart) in Sunnyvale until a couple of years ago. More recently I was getting them at a liquor store on Lincoln Avenue in Alameda. In both cases the machine broke down and the owner decided not to repair it because the cost was prohibitively expensive and the machine would have to go to Ohio.

Any ideas? Icees and their ilk are much drier and won't cut it. I've been doing without, thinking I'll forget about 'em, but the pup won't let me go. I imagine the little turning cup on top of the machine. Btw, they also make Thelma's Lemonade. Not my favorite flavor, but the texture's the same so it'll do in a pinch.

East bay would be great, but I get around a lot so if I know other locations I can plan to swing by when I'm in the neighborhood. Thanks!

      Thanks! I'll check it out when I go to Hayward Saturday.

        Just thought I'd update that the gas station is boarded up and appears to be undergoing renovation. I didn't get a chance to go there before the construction. I'll drop by when it re-opens. If they are modernizing it chances are the Slush Puppie machine will be gone.They are slowly disappearing in the area, hence my search.

      2. I would like one too, I am in San Mateo. Anyone know of any on the peninsula?
