Slushie, Icee or Slurpie? Call them what you like, but everyone loves a frozen drink on a hot summer's day.
The first slushie was 'discovered' by Richard R Slush in the 1950's when he drank orange juice that had been in the freezer. The idea of frozen drinks caught on when a farm boy from Kansas, Omar Knedlik, sold semi-frozen bottles of softdrink in his hamburger shop.They were such a hit that he then spent over 5 years developing the very first Icee machine. The Seven-Eleven stores purchased some of these machines in 1965 and coined the phrase "slurpee".
