Icees were always special treats for me growing up. If you behaved well, it was a surprise at the end of a shopping trip. When I was told about the EZ-2 Make Icee Instant Slushy Machine, I was quite excited.

Serious Tested: When we were finally ready to make our ICEE, we got everything out and followed the directions. We just had to add some ice, salt and water to various compartments. I was worried about salt getting into the slushie mix, but it ended up being a very good seal.
Once we were done with the shaking (about three minutes) I gave it to #1 to give it a try. She was really excited that she created something and when right in with a spoon. It wasn’t really the typical consistency of an ICEE. It was more like a sorbet. She ate a couple bites and was finished, so I gave it a try.
It was a little to sweet for me (and I like sweet).
It’s a bummer that it only comes with enough for three. And, you probably don’t even get a 1/4 cup worth of slushie when you are done.
I am most excited about the device itself. I’m pretty sure we will use it this summer for an ice cream-like recipe that I have. And, I won’t have to worry about salt getting into it!
My opinions are my honest, and thoughtful views and were not influenced by any source. I was not compensated monetarily for this review and giveaway. I received an ICEE instant slushy maker to facilitate my review.
