Slurpee Maker

The term slurpee refers to a frozen beverage which is sold at various 24/7 convenience stores across the world. Slurpees sold in the United States are carbonated while slurpees sold in Canada are non-carbonated. The slurpee was originally invented when sodas were frozen as a way to make them colder. The beverage turned into an icy beverage which was strikingly similar to a slushy. The result of this was the creation of slurpees which are often based on flavors of soda.

Slurpees are made with a slurpee maker. This is a machine which consists of various dispensers for the slurpee to be served. Each dispenser will serve a different flavor but this can be customized by the store that is using the slurpee maker. The slurpee maker will maintain the necessary temperature to provide a slurpee in the condition that it is most enjoyed. Older slurpee machines required the temperature to maintain at 28 degrees to keep the necessary texture and consistency. Also, there is a tank within the slurpee maker which combines the water, flavored syrup, and any other ingredients into the slurpee before it is dispensed from the machine.

The store owner has the ability to decide where exactly the slurpee maker is in the store and whether it is a self-serve machine or not. Most models of slurpee makers are now designed to be effective for self-serve use and can be placed anywhere in the store. The self-serve option allows customers to mix up the flavors that they want in their slurpee and is also more convenient for the store owner and cashiers as well.

Many people think that slurpees and slushies are the exact same thing but they are not. Slurpees are frozen carbonated beverages. Slushies are frozen non-carbonated beverages. In Canada, slurpee products are non-carbonated. While they may be marketed as slurpees, they are really slushies. Surprisingly, many people do not realize the major difference between the two.
