You can get Icees at lots of places these days as well as similar drinks at Sonic and other eateries. However, something about these particular slushies just makes them phenomenal. Is it the hefty price tag? High quality machines? I have no clue. All I know is that these taste exceptionally good and much better than standard service station Icees. The Cherry and Green Apple in particular come to mind as being all kinds of absolute, juicy wonderful.
