"I bought this for my daughter but have to say I feel like the bloke from the secret lemonade drinker advert (only over 40s will sadly know what I'm on about) constantly find myself making drinks late at night from bubblegum flavour to blue raspberry. One tip is look around on google for syrup suppliers who offer 330ml samples for about £3. They also offer 5 litres for about £10, so work out what you like then buy the big one. They claim a ratio of 1 to 6, I say it's more like 1 to 10 of the syrup and still tastes good. Some syrups contain a large amount of fruit juice so choose carefully. The slush machine itself is fantastic, does what it says on the tin. Always leave 1 inch at the top free where you fill the ice otherwise it spill into the juice and I can confirm salt flavoured blue raspberry is not something I can recommend. Very easy to clean and looks cool too. Go on and treat yourself :-)"

"I came across this slush machine on another site(!) and wanted it straight away! I was given an ice maker as a Xmas gift, and so decided my gift to myself was gonna be this. Three happy kids!
drinkstuff was the cheapest online - and as I have used the site before I had no hesitation in ordering.
The machine works just as described, although with a family of five, it isn't quite big enough for everyone to have a slush in one go.
The drinks HAVE to be quite sugary, or the ice just builds up on the outside of the canister. It's trial and error, but it's good fun having a go. Lemonade and coke work pretty well, and I also got some slush syrup - quite expensive, but just like the drinks bought from a van or cafe!
On the plus side it looks great and matches my red kitchen!!
If you are a big kid like me, and you like slush it's definitely worth a bash!
Energy drinks and tonic slush great for adding the alcohol to!"

"Ordered the slushi maker, delivered before stated. Wrapped for Xmas for my daughter. Xmas day opened and her face lit up. Excellent product, does what it says on the tin. I wasn't sure of the slush syrup I purchased, and after sending an email to drinkstuff with a very speedy reply, and very helpful, put my mind at rest. The machine works wonderfully, makes perfect shop slushi in no time, brilliant, all our thanks to a top company. I will be using again and recommend you to all I know. Thanks again."
