Kelvin's Slush: "Kicking Slurpee's Ass Since 2009"

Posted: Updated:

"Ultimately, I hope our customers have a great experience. I hope it cools them down. I hope it reminds them of their youth. And, most of all, I hope they avoid brain freeze..."

Meet Alex Rein, the founder and CEO of Kelvin's Natural Slush Co., an adult-friendly frozen slush company founded two years ago in New York City. According to Alex, his slushes are far better than anything you can get at a local convenient store, featuring base flavors and pureed fruit mix-ins designed for mature taste buds. Basically, a pretty compelling reason to relive your childhood without the embarrassment of holding an actual 7-11 Slurpee cup. And in the heat of summer, there's nothing more refreshing than these beautifully layered, icy drinks.

Enjoy Alex's fun story! To locate the slush truck, you can follow them on Twitter, or visit them at one of their upcoming events in New York City.

Thanks so much for watching food. curated.! Happy drinking!
