On a hot day like this there is nothing better than a freezer drawer full of freeze pops. I'd go as far as to say they're actually better than lollies and choc ices.

I agree, but not all ice pops are created equal. I am in love with these things, they have a texture closer to firm slush than ice and are fantastic.

Not only are they better than ice lollies, but they are hangover kryptonite; they flee before them.

Still got a few polaretti in the freezer from last year, but time to lay in a few crates of the adorable bastards.
Although Amazon are now listing Polaretti for girls. What the fuck?
(Still shilling for Polaretti, though, until someone finds a better ice pop.)

I was nearly out in shorts the other day, but I looked at myself in the mirror before leaving the house and realised the whole outfit made me look like the autistic, female, love interest from a noughties mumblecore film so I chickened out and changed into trousers.

Ice pops are fantastic, but I've always been a slush man at heart. I've long considered buying a commercial slush machine for home. You can get a used one for about five hundred quid, but I'm already conscious of being a bit of a man child, I think that might push me over the edge.

I don't agree those long thin ice pops (is that what they're called?) are better than ice cream. I've never enjoyed the texture of literal ice. Indeed when you refreeze ice cream it gets those ice crystals all over it and that really impairs the quality, for me.

The bigger Ice lollies like that Fruit Pastilles one I can tolerate. Maybe they are frozen better, or something.

If you ask me, slush is far more effective at cooling off than any ice pop out there.

So much so that I drove 300 miles to buy this the other day. Not bad for £120. The left side is not working currently but it looks like it just needs a thermistor.

I accept this is a mental purchase, but they usually go for seven times that price so how could I resist?

Working out the ideal margarita recipe for it will be my next project.

I have, and it did work, I had some people round recently and it was about a 50/50 split on impressed to horrified at the slush machine in my dusty garage.

I tried a homemade mix, and it was delicious and sort of slushified, but really with these machines, only abominations of science will perform to a professional standard, without importing weird chemicals for your own batches anyway. I worried that the tequila would have to be added outside of the machine due to the much lower freezing point, but it worked flawlessly inside the machine.

I'm convinced with enough time and patience I could concoct a homemade mix with fresh limes and so on that would actually work as a stable slush mix, but it's high strength margaritas out of a slush machine, after one and a half cups nobody is tasting it anymore anyway.

I'm not sure how you fucked it up, I bought my ex a £50 novelty slushie machine for christmas one time, like not a good one, the novelty ones from Argos, and all we did with it was make vodka slush. Works fine.

Nevermind, I misread it as though you were saying it wasn't good enough and you have to invest in fancy ingredients. When the objective is getting pissed in a novelty manner, I don't think it has to be top notch.

However, one highlight was when we did that thing where you put a big bag of skittles in vodka so all the fruit flavour steeps into it, and then made slushies out of that. I'd certainly recommend it.

It's a running joke at work that I never wear a coat and only drink cold drinks. I am the Ice King and I will drink slush deep into winter. And as >>14558 points out, once the sun really starts to cook the earth in the coming years, you will all be lining up to trade your women and ammunition for a tall cool plastic cup of blue raspberry.

Also the heat generated by the twin compressors when it's running is borderline uncomfortable, I'm sure left on long enough it'll heat my garage up entirely so I can have a tropical winter.

I've always wondered why frozen carbonated beverages have never taken off in this country - apart from Tango Ice Blast, it seems to be unobtanium. I'd jerry-rig my own machine, but pressure vessels give me the fear.

Last year I remember buying a pack of jubbly style things from homebargains, except what I didn't realise at the time they were sugar-free. They were the most vile tasting things I ever tasted, it was like a mix of fake raspberry flavour, saccharine and burnt plastic.
