Slushie drinks are my favorite and also is a super huge favorite of the kids. Whenever they get the chance they love to get them. Usually we see the “slushy man” when we go to the park and we all get different combinations. 

My personal favorite is coconut and strawberry! There are so many different combinations but we love those. It’s such a NYC staple.
