So my entire family including myself loves to eat/drink slushy drinks quite regularly and before just a few weeks ago any time we got a craving for our favorite slushy drink we had to make a trip to our local gas station and get one that way but to be quite honest their selections were quite slim we got the option to choose from cola flavored and cherry flavored slush drinks, but don’t get me wrong I love my cola slushy drink but there are times I would like to try a different flavor so when I received an e-mail about a new product that allowed you to make your own slushy drinks from your favorite drink, I immediately accepted the review/giveaway opportunity of the Blizzie!
About Blizzie (Taken From Website):
Blizzie Slushy Drink Maker from Blizzie Video on Vimeo.
Blizzie Freezer Products LLC has officially released Blizzie, the instant slushy maker. This new product is safe, quick and easy to use for all ages. All you have to do is drop the non-toxic Blizzie freezer cubes into the Blizzie cup, fill with your favorite drink, shake it up and in just minutes your drink will turn into a tasty slushie. The Blizzie comes with the 1 cup, 3 reusable freezer cubes (saltwater solution), and a straw that also serves as a spoon. Once you make your first Blizzie and are ready for another, all you have to do is rinse the cubes in warm water and place them back in the freezer. Once frozen, you are ready for your next round.
Blizzie works with juices, sodas, energy drinks and much more. One Blizzie fan even said that it works great with red wine, which proves its versatility for all ages.
Blizzie has been using local flea markets and mall kiosks to build a buzz amongst fans. You can currently catch Blizzie monthly at the Pasadena Flea Market and weekly at the Orange County Swap Meet. Blizzie Freezer Products plans to expand to more kiosks and increase online sales of the product in the upcoming months. You can purchase your Blizzie online at MyBlizzie.com and be sure to keep in touch on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
I was sent a Blizzie from Blizzie Freezer Products LLC to review and it arrived super quickly and I have to admit after reading about all the awesome things that you can use in the Blizzie I was quite excited to get started making our own slushy drinks, so I immediately put them in the freezer so we could get started. The Blizzie works wonderful with different fruit juices, sodas, energy drinks, chocolate milk and just about any other drink you can think of! My little “Bug” and I decided we were going to test the Blizzie out on Chocolate Milk for him and Strawberry Milk for me, of course we had to make his Chocolate Milk slushy first but that was ok because I just wanted to see this thing work.
I just couldn’t believe how easy it was to use the Blizzie to make “Bug’s” Chocolate Milk slushy!!! All I had to do was of course clean the shaker and spoon really good then drop the magic freezer cubs into the shaker with “Bug’s” chocolate milk and shake it until it was slushy for him and I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but my little man doesn’t favor milk at all and at times it’s a fight to get him to drink it but now since we have the Blizzie it’s much easier to get him to eat/drink his milk, since it makes it a fun drink for him and not to mention I’m loving how easy it is to make and the clean up afterwards!
Since our first use the Blizzie has been used quite regularly around our house we have experimented with just about everything we can think of from our favorite apple juice to my husband experimenting with his favorite beer, that one I wasn’t to fond of but he seemed to really enjoy it?????? The one thing I love most about or Blizzie is that I can now have my favorite diet drink as a slushy and it helps me stay away from the “non-diet” slushy drinks at the local gas station and I’m loving that I can create a super delicious coffee slushy from my favorite coffee and coffee creamer!! Since receiving the Blizzie we have yet to return to the gas station for our slushy fix….so not only do we get to make our very own special, one of a kind slushy drinks we are saving money….how could it get any better than this???
We love our Blizzie and to be quite honest I wish someone had thought of this a long time ago!!! Not only has it helped up save some money on frequent trips to the gas station for our slushy fix but it’s also allowed us to be creative with us being able to create our own slushy concoctions and not only is it super fun it’s also super delicious!
If you are looking for that special addition to your holiday gift basket or a gift for the college student in your family I really recommend the Blizzie to everyone this holiday season!
