    Wow, I haven't seen Slush Puppies in years. If you don't find them, 7-11 makes a good Slurpee.

      There used to be a Slush Puppy machine in Chiefland, FL at the gas station with the (church's?) chicken counter, across the street from the Taco Bell...which has chili cheese burritos if you have a hankering for the elusive, rare taco bell item.

        If you ever find yourself in the Miami aread, the Bird Bowl on 92 avenue has 3 slush puppy machines. I have no idea if they're good but they do have the machines there.

        Oh man, I haven't had a slush puppy in FOREVER! I remember getting them at the Texaco station. If Bird Bowl really does have them I'll have to pay them a visit.

          Ah yes, I remember Slush Puppies as the alternative to the 7-11 Slurpee from my childhood days in Ft. Laud. Can't help you now, but thanks for the blast from the past.

            Lil' Champ convenience stores used to have them (headquartered in Orlando, so says a very quick Google search). Maybe stop in and check if you drive past one of those.

            I used to get the blue one because it grossed people out the most ;)
