Pour nearly any beverage into the Slush Mug's GlacierCore to turn it into a Slushee.

The secret is in the patented Glaciercore

The Slush Mug actually consists of two parts: the Glaciercore and the Plastic Mug.  The secret to creating perfect Slushees rests within the Glaciercore. Simply freeze the core, pour your beverage into it, and presto-change-o, you've got a Slushee. 

A super-freezing and non-toxic refrigerant is permanently sealed inside the Glaciercore. This makes it possible for the Glaciercore to freeze your beverage to super-frosty Slushee-making temperatures. In fact, the Glaciercore cools your drink to 34ºF (and at the same time crystallizes the ingredients in your beverage) without watering it down.

The Glaciercore is designed to fit in most freezer doors.

The Slush Mug is incredibly easy to use.  Just freeze the Glaciercore, pour in your beverage, and wait about 6 minutes (stirring occasionally) until your Slushee is ready to eat.  It's basically a hand-held Slush maker!

You can now enjoy a refreshing Slushee, made from your favorite non-diet beverage, at any time. Relaxing on the couch? Have a Slushee.  Hanging out by the pool? Have a Slushee. Reading about your favorite Slushee-making product on your favorite website? Have a Slushee.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: So, can I make a Mountain Dew Slushee?

Answer: Yes. As long as the beverage isn't diet, it should make a great Slushee.  Here's a short list of some of our favorite Slushees:

Question: How long will the Slushee last?

Answer: The Glaciercore will keep your Slushee in that perfectly slushed state for up to two hours.

Question: Does the Glaciercore ever go bad?

Answer: No. However, if something should happen, the manufacturer backs the Slush Mug with a lifetime warranty.

Question: How does it work?

Answer: The patented non-toxic refrigerant sealed inside the Glaciercore lowers the temperature of the beverage to 34ºF.  At this temperature, the ingredients in the drink crystallize and turn the drink into a Slushee.  Unlike ice, the Slush Mug won't water down your drink.

Question: Why couldn't I just add a bunch of ice to my drink and blend it?

Answer: Because that's not a Slushee.  That would be more like a snow cone, but not as good.  The Glaciercore cools down the drink and causes the crystalization (Slushee effect) without watering down your drink.

Question: How long does it take to freeze the Glaciercore?

Answer: That depends on the temperature of your freezer, but it normally takes about six hours.  If you're worried about not being able to make enough Slushees to satisfy your cravings, buy two!  Or, after you create each Slushee, pour the contents into a bowl and toss the Glaciercore back into the freezer.  If you've only had it out of the freezer for a few minutes, it shouldn't take long to re-freeze the core.

Question: Is the Slush Mug dishwasher safe?

Answer: Maybe. It's best to hand wash the Glaciercore as some new dishwashers reach such high temperatures that they may deform the core.

Question: So, is the Slush Mug a slush maker, slushy maker, slushie maker, slushee maker, or icee maker?

Answer: All of the above! Whether your spell it slushy, slushie, or slushee, the Slush Mug is going to make one and it's going to taste darn good.

Question: Where can I buy the Slush Mug?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: why no diet sodas?
A: Because diet sodas do not slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I make beer slushie with this?
A: We've heard mixed reports of it working with low-alcohol content beers, but generally speaking we would have to say no.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Not that we're aware of. Why on earth would you want a vinegar slushie?
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you slush lesters food drinks?
A: Sure! You can slush any drink that contains sugar, including sodas.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens when you put the glacier core in the freezer for to long?
A: Nothing. In fact, we recommend storing the Glacier Core in the freezer all the time so that it's always ready to go when you want to make a slushy.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I only get back spasms after eating cold things too fast, and the video did not advertise this point. Will I only receive brain freezes with the Slush Mug, or can it provide my usual form of pain?
A: We're not your doctor, so we can't answer that for you. Sorry!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can it freeze energy drinks?
A: The Slush Mug can slush pretty much drink as long as it contains sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I melt a bit of the worlds largest gummy worm and make it into a slushed. Of I by the way you guys are awesome
A: The gummy would solidify before it would slush, so no.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If you put something like melted ice cream in it would it turn into slush?
A: A bit, but wouldn't just regular ice cream be better?
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Couldn't you just put a random drink in a cup, put it in the freezer and stir every once and a while ?
A: It would need to be in constant motion, in which case it would just be a slushy machine. So to answer your question, no, that wouldn't work because you'd have to be stirring it for several hours as opposed to several minutes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you need the mug to make the slushie?
A: Only if you have some other sort of slushy making device. You can't just put a drink in the freezer and expect it to slush on its own.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is the consistency thin enough so that one may use a straw to drink it, or is a spoon pretty much required.
A: It depends on what you're slushing, but for most drinks a straw would suffice. It would just have to be a slightly wider than usual straw and not those cheap thin ones.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I also make a slushee from a chocolate drink?
A: Sure! We mention milk a couple times on the page when talking about drinks that can be slushed.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you add a sports drink to the slush mug?
A: Yes, as long as it contains sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: We've heard mixed reports of it working with low-alcohol content beers, but generally speaking we would have to say no.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it disgusting when a coffee become slush?
A: Not at all. Surely you've heard of iced coffee and frappucinos before.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Well can i leave it outside because there is -9 to -15 F would it breake the slush mug because my freezer isnt that cold its only like -5 F
A: Absolutely. -15F isn't cold enough to damage the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What about water with sugar?
A: Yes, as long as the liquid you put in the mug has sugar in it, it will work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So I froze it once and then ate the slushie, then I tried to do it again right after I made the first one (without putting it back in the freezer) and it didn't work! Could you yell me what went wrong?
A: You would need to refreeze the core to make another slushie. The core needs to be completely frozen solid to work properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long can the slush mug last at room temperature? Like leaving it out at that temperature?
A: Are you asking how long it will stay cold enough to continue slushing drinks? Maybe about 10 minutes or so. It depends on how warm the room you're making them in is.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much is the max amount of liquid I can add to the glacier core without it overflowing?
A: It's not really important, honestly. If you fill the GlacierCore above the fill line, it might not be able to slush at all.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: It said 6 hours in the freezer. Can I leave it in the freezer up to 8 hours or more?
A: Yes. In fact, we have been recommending that for years because it doesn't make sense to completely thaw it out when you're not using it. By leaving it in the freezer it's always ready to go!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you make multiple slushies with one freeze?
A: If you're fast, you might be able to make a second slush in a single sitting.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I drop the glacier core, will it break/crack easily?
A: Not necessarily but it is possible. You should do your best to avoid dropping the Glacier Core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why Not Lester Food Soda Slurpee?
A: Oh, but you can!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long will it freeze before it melts?
A: That really depends on how warm the air around it is, so there's no meaningful answer I can give you.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it still work if its-6°f?
A: Yes but it may not work as well. The recommend temperature is -10F.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I turn my Chocolate Milk into a slushy?
A: You sure can!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does milk slushie taste good babe?
A: Ever had a milkshake? It's a lot like that.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I would hate to burst your bubble but in order to get the way you had it on the video you would have to wait ten or more minutes and you advertise 6 minutes
A: How well the Slush Mug works depends entirely on how cold your freezer is. If it's not cold enough, you're right, it can take that long.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I am way to curious. who exactly answers all the burning questions?
A: That would the Rick the Omniscient.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with Lester's Food Sodas? Like bacon for example?
A: Yep! Any drink that contains sugar will slush, including Lester's Fixin's.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can i make a slushie with a milkshake or hot chocolate?
A: A milkshake is already frozen, so no. You also cannot slush hot drinks for obvious reasons.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much slushee does it make?
A: Twelve ounces.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much sugar must I add to 12oz. of water for it to make a slush?
A: We're not really sure. Start with a tablespoon and work your way up!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much grams of sugar do you need to make it slush and how cold do you need your freezer?
A: A can of soda, which is 12 ounces, usually has about 39 grams of sugar in it. That seems like a pretty good amount to start experimenting with. Your freezer must be at least -10F.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How can the mug turn the liquids into slushees? What is the principle?
A: Sugary liquids, when frozen, crystallize.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you ship to canada?
A: Yes, we ship internationally.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What should I do after pouring the juice
A: Stir it!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it have a cap or something?
A: Nope. A cap would just get in the way of you enjoying your slush!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does the plastic contain BPA?
A: No. The Slush Mug is completely BPA/phthalate free.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Hold on a second, White Russian Slushee, Seriously?
A: Seriously. Just make sure to add the alcohol after you've slushed the half and half.

A: Absolutely! The GlacierCore can withstand hundreds of trips through the freezer.

Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Not exactly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Let me put this in as simple of terms as I can... Is it legit?
A: Yes, the SlushMug is absolutely legitimate. It's parents, Mr. and Mrs. SlushMug, were married before its conception and remain so to this day.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why does the drink have to have sugar in it to work?
A: The main reason why diet sodas will not slush is because artificial sweeteners do not crystallize properly when frozen.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: will it still be able to make a slushi if its not quite solid it says its supost to be solid but i dont think my freezers goes cold enough...
A: If it's not cold enough then your Slush Mug will not make a proper slushy. Your freezer MUST be set to at least -10F.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: One time I bought a different version of the slush mug, and it didnt work at all. How do I know this will work as well?
A: Because we don't need to prey on people's insomnia to get them to buy it. Imitators you see on late night TV are just that: imitations.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: when you buy something like in Mexico, ¿Does the shipping cost is dollars or in our money?
A: All prices are listed in US dollars, including the shipping cost. When you place your order, the bank will automatically convert the currency into dollars.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Diet sodas, alcoholic drinks, and so on. We actually cover a lot of that on the product page.

A: A little bit of masochism is required to work at Vat19.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: You'd only have to wait for six hours if you let the Glacier Core return to room temperature.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I use redbull?
A: Although we haven't tried it ourselves, we have had customers who tried it and said it worked well.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is the coke (coca-cola) slushee tasty? Or it get's mostly water?
A: It tastes great! I'm not sure how it'd be mostly water since you're not adding ice.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How high am I supposed to fill it? I have one and its doesn't go as high as yours does in the video.
A: Only fill it to the fill line. When you stir it, stir upwards so that it "fluffs" the slushed drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: if I put sugar into beer or none sugary drinks would it work?
A: Why not just buy a sweetened drink in the first place? As for adding it to beer, not only would it probably not work well, but it also wouldn't taste very good either.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: what happen if you combine the Jelly Belly soda and the Slush mug?
A: One heck of a delicious slushy!
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: No. The refrigerant is perfectly safe and completely non toxic.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Plastic and a liquid refrigerant. The manufacturer does not disclose exactly what is in the refrigerant but it is completely non-toxic.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Alcohol will not slush, nor will drinks that do not contain sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I put sauce on it and make it a slush?
A: Technically the mug will have already made a slush since you can only use sweetened drinks like soda, but sure, you can add more syrup if you want.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does this compare to that "Squeezy Freezy" thing on television?
A: Infinitely better. Any other questions?
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens if you put artificially flavored drinks in?
A: It wouldn't make any difference at all. Most sodas are themselves artificially flavored. Artificially SWEETENED drinks, however, will not slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can the glaciercore over freeze?
A: No. I'm not really sure how something can be more frozen than frozen.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much tax would it cause to ship to Malaysia ?
A: I'm sorry, but we have no way to anticipate what sort of duties or taxes your local government will apply to your order.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I put the slushie in the freeze for a bit will it turn into a Snow Cone?
A: No. A snow cone is shaved ice with flavored syrup poured over it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Um slurpies taste amazing do you think this taste better or the same amazing flavor of a slurpie :)
A: Your slushee going to taste like whatever you put in it. Whether or not it tastes better than your favorite Slurpee is entirely under your control, not the mug's.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: You said water won't work. What if I mixed something with sugar in it with the water first, then poured it in, then would it work?
A: That would be sugar water, not just water, so the answer is yes. Any drink that has a fair amount of sugar in it will slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What's the point in this, when you can just freeze a drink in a freezer-safe container then stir it to crush it a little?
A: I'm a little surprised that this question is as common as it is. Your method would require waiting for the soda to freeze, which would take a few hours. The slush mug would ALREADY be frozen since you're supposed to keep it in the freezer. This means that you would only have to wait a few minutes for the mug to slush your drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How did you make the slush slush all the way to the top? Mine only goes to the fill line.
A: Stir upwards. Slushed liquid very easily "piles" upon itself.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How come the drink isnt filled to the fil line in the pictures? its kind - of missleading.
A: They were. When liquid freezes it expands, and since it can't expand horizontally it can only go vertically.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is the slush mug BPA-free ?and phthalate-free?
A: Yes. The Slush Mug is completely BPA/phthalate free.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does the slush mug make the beverage feel like jello?
A: No, it makes it feel like a slushy. Imagine crushed ice.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is this suitable for vegans? Like the material its made of?
A: The Glacier Mug is made of plastic, so I would assume so.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can i use the connectible strawz product to drinkt the slush?
A: I don't see why not!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I wrap my core with plastic wrap because my freezer contains lots of raw stuff like meat and i dont want the freezer scent to get in the mug.
A: Sure, just make sure it's separate from the mug. The Glacier Core forms a very tight fit in the mug and the additional plastic might cause it to get stuck. Alternatively, you can throw the whole Slush Mug into a freezer bag.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If you only want a little bit of a slush like maybe half of the mug, will it still slush?
A: Maybe, however it works best when filled to the fill line.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: When you are not using the Slush Mug can you keep the GlaicerCore in the freezer?
A: Yes. In fact, we have been recommending that for years because it doesn't make sense to completely thaw it out when you're not using it. By leaving it in the freezer it's always ready to go!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with energy drinks?
A: If they have sugar in them, then yes!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you put tea or coffee while theyre hot in it or do you have to let them cool down first?
A: If you were to pour hot coffee into a cup that was made of ice, what do you think would happen first: the coffee would freeze or the ice cup would melt?No, it is not possible to slush hot drinks.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you give guys give freebies to fans?
A: Only if they pay us.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I make a slush with the orange juice which u make at home with only oranges ?
A: I don't see why not. You'd need a lot of oranges, though.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long is it reusable for?
A: The Slush Mug will, for all intents and purposes, last indefinitely.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Its not instant if you have to put it in the fridge for 6 hours. What if I want more than one cup of slush.
A: When you want ice cubes, do you make a whole new tray or do you make them ahead of time? Simply leave the GlacierCore in the freezer and it will always be ready to go. No one expects you to completely thaw it out and start over again each time you want a slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I bought a slush mug:) When it arrives do i have to pay tax? I bought everything including shipping for $19.68 will it only tax the slush mug( 9.99) or will it tax the total?
A: There's no sales tax, but if you had it shipped outside of the United States there may be additional taxes applied by your local customs agency.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: My apple juice is about 23g-27g of sugar, will it create a slush?
A: There is definitely enough sugar in pure apple juice to get a slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What kind of spoon do we use? Metal or plastic spoons?
A: Whichever you prefer.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work with sweet tea?
A: Theoretically it should. Any non-alcoholic drink that is made with sugar should slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I eat it without a spoon?
A: I don't see why you wouldn't be able to unless you have sensitive teeth or something.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I've had my slush mug for quite some time now and I'm fed up with slushing fizzy drinks. Do you recommend any other drinks I could slush? Would energy drinks like powerade be any good??
A: Maybe! Feel free to experiment with any sweetened drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I added milk and parts of Oreos would it make cookies and cream ice cream?
A: No. Too bad making ice cream isn't that simple.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I use water or flavor water?
A: No. Your drink absolutely must have sugar in it. Without sugar your drink will NOT slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I use Welches Grape Juice in the slush mug?
A: That may work. Grape juice can be sweet. Just make sure it contains sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: This is an awesome product!Can I use any juice product for this Slushee Mug?
A: You can use anything you like as long as it contains natural sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I have a homemade cocktail without any alcohol, but with sugar and pour it in the slush mug will it actualy work?
A: Possibly! The only requirement for a drink to slush is that it has to contain sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why can't I just buy a pop, put it in the freezer for 3 and a half hours, take it out then shake it. That makes an instant slushie too.
A: Not only is three and a half hours not instant, but putting a soda in the freezer would likely cause it to explode.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What I have to do to order from your page to get it in Greece?
A: Simply click the "Add to Cart" button and follow the checkout procedure. Don't forget to change the destination country to Greece when filling out your address.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: i know not to use diet cola, but if I use another fizzy drink like fanta or lemonade, will i get a fizzy slushee or will i get a slushee the same taste but flat?
A: There's not really a lot of gray area to work with. Either a drink will slush (as a result of containing sugar) or it will not. As for the carbonation, yes it's possible for it to retain some of it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you make a lemonade slush using the slush mug?
A: If you've included an appropriate amount of sugar, yes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I make a Ribena slushee???
A: If it has a fair amount of natural sugar in it, then yes!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: You guy are the best Store EVER SO will u ever make a REAL store??? like physical
A: Probably not, but I can't say that for sure. Physical retail stores are extremely expensive to maintain.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can't we just freeze the drink in ice cubes, then blend it to get a slushee?
A: That would take a lot longer than 6 minutes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work on beer?
A: We've heard mixed reports of it working with low-alcohol content beers, but generally speaking we would have to say no.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would you fill your choice of beverage all the way to the top or is there a line you have to fill it to?
A: The Glacier Core has a fill line that you need to fill to. Going over it will prevent your drink from slushing properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it hard to get the core out the outside part when done using it?
A: It's a tight fit but I wouldn't say it's difficult by any means.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can't we just put an unopened bottle of soda in a freezer for a few hours then pour it into a cup for a free slushie?
A: How is that free? You're still buying the soda, and worse, you have to wait a few hours. Oh, and it'll probably explode. But, if you leave the Glacier Core in the freezer all the time it will always be ready to go.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it possible to drink just from the plastic mug? I thought this due to it's 'incomprehensible' shape.
A: It's possible but it's not easy or practical since it has an inward facing lip.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What if I put the glaciercore on the freezer for months? Will it break somehow or become brittle?
A: No. In fact, we recommend keeping your Glacier Core in the freezer all the time so that it's always ready to be used.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is the glacier core reuse-able? like.... if we are done with one slushee... we can make more with the same glacier core. I just bought it and i didnt want it to be a one-time use. :)
A: If you're fast, you might be able to make a second slush in a single sitting. The Glacier Cores themselves will last indefinitely.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it similar to the slushee magic?
A: Not at all. The key difference is that our product actually works.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Could I buy a slush and melt it and make it into a new slush using this?
A: Theoretically, but I can't imagine why you'd want to undertake such a bizarre and inefficient task.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can i use any juice?
A: As long as it is naturally sweetened and contains an appropriate amount of sugar, yes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it possible that the slush mug may not work?
A: Only if you use it incorrectly!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you drink normal drinks in just the plastic mug?
A: You could but it wouldn't be very comfortable or easy to drink from.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does this require some special powder?
A: Not at all. It only requires a sweetened drink and a freezer!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I melt ice cream into a liquid then slush it?P.S i just bought it and i'm super excited!
A: Sure. That's essentially what a milkshake is.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you take me to the employees page? Please!
A: Here you go. For future reference, you can get there by clicking the "Meet the Crew" link at the bottom of the page.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why don't diet sodas work in the slush mug
A: The main reason why diet sodas will not slush is because artificial sweeteners do not crystallize properly when frozen.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: would this work with magic milkstraws? (don't say why would you do that! i meant if you put in milk) and that leads me to another question would this work with milk?
A: Maybe? I think the slushy would have a hard time getting past the flavor beads in the Magic Milk Straw. Yes, milk can be slushed.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will you ever make more colors?
A: Possibly, but right now there are no plans for more colors.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does the freezing effect eventually wear off?
A: Not as long as you keep putting the Glacier Core back in the freezer.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I bought this and apparently this only works on cold drinks cause the first time i used it it was with a warm drink and it didnt work the second with a cold drink and it worked. Is this normal ?
A: Yes, actually it is. Obviously it's going to take more energy to bring a warm drink down to freezing than a drink that is already cold.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you have to stir in order to make the slush in the slush mug?
A: Stirring and scraping the inside of the Slush Mug is crucial to the slushing process.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why does the drink I use have to contain sugar?
A: Because drinks that have been naturally sweetened do not freeze the same as artificial or unsweetened drinks.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will nesquik chocolate milk mix/Hershey's chocolate syrup work with milk in the slush mug?
A: Possibly. Why not order a mug and find out!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would it work with home-made ice tea? (My mom makes the best ice tea in the world! :D)
A: If that tea has sugar in it, then yes. A good rule of thumb when figuring out if a drink will slush or not is to ask yourself if the drink has a fair amount of natural sugar in it. If the answer is yes, then it will very likely slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What is your favorite fruit?
A: Apples. No doubt about it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I tried something like this before. It was called Sushie Magic and it didn't work at all and was crap only adding in small ice crystals. Can you ganetee 100% this works?
A: Yes. Slushie Magic is a vastly inferior product and not at all like the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How do you make the slushee go to the top? I have this, and it slushes, but the slushee stays at the fill line. Help!
A: Make sure you stir upwards. Slushed drinks are semi-solid, so the ice crystals will stack on top of one another.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would it slush faster if you put the mug back in the freezer with the liquid inside?
A: Not really. The stirring is what makes the drink slush up, which you can't do if the Slush Mug is in the freezer.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you freeze the Glacier Core for as long as you want to make a slushy any time? And is it difficult to remove the Glacier Core when you have finished your slushy?
A: We actually recommend leaving the Glacier Core in the freezer all the time so it can always be ready to be used. The Glacier Core fits tightly into the Slush Mug, but it's not too difficult to free.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I were to blend ice cream with milk and chocolate and then pour it into the slush mug, would it turn it to slush?
A: Maybe! Why not order one and find out? That sounds delicious.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What is the height and diameter in inches?
A: The plastic mug by itself is 5" tall with a 3.75" diameter (not including the handle). The Glaciercore is 6" tall with a 3.5" diameter at its widest part.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: i love u guys and i especially like your slush mug and giant gummy bear on a stick!
A: Thanks! We greatly appreciate your support!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would it be good to put whisky stones in it to make the effect of how long it stays cool longer?
A: Whiskey Stones would not have any measurable effect on the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will they ever make one with a lid?
A: Probably not since a lid isn't really necessary.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much will this cost n the uk and were do i check???
A: Currency exchange rates change daily, so you can check Google for those figures. When you place an order the correct amount will automatically be debited from your account.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would champagne slush?
A: Probably not since alcohol has a much lower freezing temperature than soda.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If can you use iced tea? and if I left something in it overnight, what exactly would happen? Would it free to the core?
A: If you leave the Glacier Core out for too long it will eventually return to room temperature. Iced tea will work so long as it is sweetened.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would Monster energy drink work?
A: We haven't tested it, but judging by the large amount of sugar in Monster Energy Drink, we're pretty confident that it will slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it possible to drink it through a strawz (cross promo)?
A: We think it is easier to eat your slush with a spoon, but you could use Strawz. The more complicated the design, the more effort it'll take to suck up a slush through it!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would alcoholic beverages be too resistant to freezing to be made into slushies?
A: It depends on the amount of alcohol, but yes, it can impede the slushing process.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you leave the mug in with the Glaciercore when you put it in the freezer?
A: Yes, you can leave the entire mug and core in the freezer if you like.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: in the picture above you see slush all the way to the top of the cup but it has a fill line and it doesnt work if its past the fill line does it??
A: Liquids expand as they freeze. Since the slush cannot expand outwards, it expands upwards!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If i leave the glaciercore in the fridge for more than 6 hours, will the drink slush up faster?
A: Not necessarily. If your Fridge is -10F, the Glacier Core is not going to get any colder than -10F even if it's in there longer than 6 hours.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: my slush mug does fizzy drinks/soda a lot quicker than something like orange juice is this normal?
A: The carbonation probably has a lot to do with that since the fizz "fluffs" the soda, so to speak.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How many servings does each make? (Or how long they last)
A: If you're fast, you might be able to make a second slush in a single sitting. The Glacier Cores themselves will last indefinitely.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: how many glaciercore inserts do you get ?
A: Each Slush Mug contains one Glacier Core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would the Slush Mug slush flavoured water? Specifically Volvic Strawberry flavoured Water. In the ingredients section is says 95% water and 4.8% sugar. Thanks for reading and hopefully answering! :)
A: Maybe? The only way to know for sure it to try it yourself.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: My freezer is -5 degrees. When I slushed my soda, it only went to the line, but in the video yours went to the top! Can you tell me how you did it so I know I'm not doing anything wrong? Please answer.
A: Some drinks may slush a little better than others. Just keep experimenting!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If you had the chance, would you make a store?
A: Maybe? Hard to say.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I put milk in, would it make a milkshake, or just the normal awesome slush.
A: Slushed milk is sort of like a milkshake but not exactly the same.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I leave it in the freezer when I'm not using it so I can pretty much make one any time?
A: Yes, absolutely!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will this work with Arizona teas?
A: Only if they have sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I buy an extra glacier core insert by itself?
A: Sorry, but we do not sell the Glacier Core separately.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does vat19 make this or not?
A: We're a retailer, not a manufacturer.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is the Slush Mug (not the glacier core) dishwasher safe?
A: We recommend hand washing for the entire product. Dish washing machines can get ridiculously hot, so anything made of plastic could melt or warp.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How come in the video there was slushy up to the top, but when I made it, it was just a bit over the line. Did you guys pour more in, or added more slushy? Please answer, thanks.
A: Some drinks simply slush better than others. The more you stir and the colder your mug is, the more "slush" will rise to the top.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How heavy is the slush mug? Thanks.
A: The Slush Mug weighs 1 pound.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If this does not work will I be able to return it for a refund because I really want it but i don't want to waste any money for something that does not work.
A: We wouldn't be able to get away with a product that doesn't work, but with that being said you can review our return policy here.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much does it cost to post to Northern Ireland?
A: International shipping prices will vary depending on the method of shipping you choose at checkout.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with Vodka my friend wants to know?
A: Vodka doesn't freeze, so no.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If you dipped the Glaciercore in liquid Nitrogen, how long would it take to freeze then?(I have access to large quantities.)
A: If you have large quantities of liquid nitrogen then you probably know that dipping plastics in it will cause the plastic to become brittle. We do not suggest trying this.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: is there a review section for this product because if there was i would say it relay works and and that its allot better than the ad.
A: We don't have a review section yet, but this will do for now. Thanks for ordering!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: is the slush mug halal?
A: It's a plastic cup, so you don't have to worry about eating it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So if you wanted to have another slushie out of the Slush Mug right after you finished a full cup,you would have to wait 6 hours?
A: You could make a second slushee if you quickly make the first one and then pour it out and immediately make the next one. Remember, the core needs to be frozen solid to work properly. It shouldn't take 6 hours to bring it back to freezing since its already cold.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can you mix drinks to make a mixed slushy?
A: As long as both drinks have sugar, sure!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does this really work? My dad thinks it's too good to be true.

Q: Will new colours be coming out?
A: There are no plans for additional colors at this time. Sorry!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it honestly work? I don't think you guys would sell something that doesn't, but I saw a home-video testing something like it, and it didn't work very well.
A: The Slush Mug has been one of our most popular products for years and it works every bit as well as the video describes. Luckily, we're in a position to deny products that don't work well.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work for ice cream?
A: No, the Slush Mug cannot be used to make ice cream.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it BPA free?
A: Yes. The Slush Mug is completely BPA free.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: does it work with mio
A: I sincerely doubt it. Drinks need to have a fair amount of sugar in them to slush properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: does it work with soda stream soda?
A: Here's a quick guide to being able to tell if a drink will work in the slush mug: Does it have sugar/corn syrup? If yes, then it will will work. I don't know what stream soda is, but if it has sugar in it, then yes, it will slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: does this work with sodas that use corn syrup and not sugar? I wonder since it says it doesn't work with diet sodas.
A: Yes, as corn syrup is a natural sugar. Most diet sodas use artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame, in lieu of sugar or corn syrup.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: how come you don't show your self making the slushy? how do we know its not fake?
A: Because that would be illegal and dishonest. Besides, did you not watch the video? If that doesn't convince you, look up any one of numerous reviews on YouTube.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So is there different sizes?
A: The Slush Mug is only available in one size.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: OK, I really wants this, but is it a rip-off, like all those others I have tried?
A: This is the real deal. See, we aren't the manufacturer, so we have no incentive to lie about how well a product works. If a product is no good, we simply refuse sell it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How high should I fill my drink in the Slush Mug? I see that you guys filled yours almost to the top.
A: There's a fill line which is about an inch and a half from the rim of the Glacier Core. Going beyond that line might not allow the drink to slush properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What if you added sugar to an artificially sweetened drink, would that work?
A: Maybe, but it would also sort of defeat the point of an artificially sweetened drink (AKA diet drink).
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I put water or cereals with milk in the Slush Mug?
A: You can, but they won't slush very well (if at all).
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I make chocolate milk will it slush just like any other flavor
A: Yes, milk will slush up. Chocolate milk should slush up even better due to the additional sugar from the syrup.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does the slush mug work with energy drinks like gatorade or powerade?
A: Gatorade might not have enough sugar in it. The Slush Mug only works with naturally sweetened drinks.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Once you freeze the glaciercore, how long will it stay cold enough for the slush mug to still work ?
A: It depends on how warm your house is, obviously, but it should stay cold enough for the 6 or so minutes required to make a slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How does the glacier core make the slushee?
A: The patented non-toxic refrigerant sealed inside the Glaciercore lowers the temperature of the beverage to 34ºF. At this temperature, the ingredients in the drink crystallize and turn the drink into a Slushee. Unlike ice, the Slush Mug won't water down your drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I found the wait and stir method to be lacking, so I just put the drink into the glacier core and freeze it again for 10 minutes. Will this method make the slushie lack in flavor, or damage the glacier core?
A: Not at all. You may also want to make sure that your freezer is set to -10F.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I saw you used one of those frapp. in a bottle from starbucks. Do those really work?
A: They do! They're loaded with sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is high fructose corn syrup required? Or will pure cane sugar soda work as well?
A: Pure cane sugar should work as well.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it possible that putting the core into the freezer below the suggested temperature of 23C would cause any harm to the product or affect it's ability to slushify surgered drinks?
A: They'll likely slush a lot more quickly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How would wash the slush so that it does not get damaged
A: By hand with a little soap and water.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I use it twice before putting it back in the freezer for another six hours?
A: If you're fast you might be able to make a second slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: would lemonada from metro work?i bought it and just wonderin
A: Does it have sugar? If so then it should work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can the glacier core break if kept in the freezer too long?
A: No. In fact, we recommend keeping the Glacier Core in the freezer so that it's always ready to go.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: In the slush mug video it seems when you were putting in the Glacier core it took a bit of work my question is how hard is it to take out of the mug?
A: Not very. It's a snug fit, but it's not so tight as to be a problem removing the Glacier Core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you ship to the U.K.?
A: We do!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Approximately how long will the slushee last for without melting, and how long will it take for the liquid to turn into the actual slushee?
A: That depends on how warm or cold it is where you are.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: At the end of the page it says "available in several colors" then shows four colors. i thoughts several meant 7???
A: Several has never meant seven, otherwise people would just say seven. It simply means any small number of three or more.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How did you guys get your slushies to be very slushed like the ones on this page?
A: Exactly as it's shown. The stirring is absolutely essential to the slushing process.

Q: Is it kosher or vegan?
A: It's a cup. Whether or not it's kosher or vegan depends entirely on what you put in it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with juice powders?
A: It's worth a shot. Just make sure that said powders contain a lot of sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would the slushie taste watery?
A: Not at all. Having non-watered down slushies is pretty much the whole point of the slush mug.

A: Yes, we will be happy to ship to you even if you're English.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: We have many drinks with sucralose (sugar with the carbs removed); will the Slush Mug work?
A: We haven't had the opportunity to try it, so I'm afraid I can't say for sure. We can only guarantee that drinks with natural sugar or corn syrup will work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would it work with Coke Zero or is that counted as diet soda?
A: Coke Zero is artificially sweetened, so no, it will not work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I mixed in sugar to a diet soda would it work? What happens if I try to use a diet soda?
A: I can't say for sure. Wouldn't that be completely defeating the point of a diet soda?

Q: What do you think some of the the best drinks are?
A: Slushed Mt. Dew seems to be the office favorite. It's hard to top that!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you slushify Fuse? It has a thicker consistency than most drinks.
A: We haven't tried it. Having natural sugar is the key to slushing.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: It's 5.5" tall and 6" wide (including the handle).
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What is the minimum required temperature to freeze the core in Celsius and Fahrenheit?
A: Your freezer must be at least -10F.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can the outer plastic mug also be used to hold beverages while the Glaciercore is in the freezer?
A: The outer "mug" doesn't make a very good mug, actually. It's more of a holder specifically for the glacier core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is there a way this can be a weapon to annihilate Justin Bieber? If it could happen, I think it could be by far the BEST advertisement to kill J.B. with one of these.
A: Yeah, it's called not buying his albums.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can the slush turn in to ice ????????
A: Slush basically is ice. If you were to put it back in the freezer I'm sure it would definitely harden.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I used blue gatorade in the slushee mug and it turned out quite nicely, only slightly icey. I have a question though, is there anything you can do with the core, other than make slushees?
A: That's pretty much all it was designed to do. I suppose you could make a planter out of it, but who would want to do that?
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do these things melt when in impact with hot weather?
A: No, but excessively hot water may cause the plastic to deform.

A: As long as the drink contains sugar, you can make a slush out of just about any drink you like.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you slush an alcoholic beverage?
A: Alcohol lowers the freezing temperature of any liquid considerably. Because of this, alcoholic drinks cannot be reliably slushed with the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Hello!So I am assuming you know the new Pepsi Next. I was wondering if the Slush Mug would turn this into Slush. The bottles say it has 30% less sugar in them.Thanks!

Q: how long does it last?
A: With proper care the GlacierCore will last indefinitely.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can the plastic mug you put the glaciercore in be used without the core as a regular mug?
A: Not really. The "mug" is less a real mug and more of a holder for the GlacierCore.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can't you just freeze the drink you want in the freezer and then just blend it?
A: If you've ever tried freezing something with sugar or corn syrup you'll find that all it really does is make a big sticky mess.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can i freeze it with ice cubes?
A: Putting the Glaciercore in ice cubes might not get the core frozen solid. The core needs to be completely frozen to work properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can i leave the core in the freezer for more than 6 hours?
A: Yes. In fact, we recommend leaving the Glacier Core in the freezer at all times so it's always ready to go.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is this dish washer safe?
A: Maybe. It's best to hand wash the Glaciercore as some new dishwashers reach such high temperatures that they may deform the core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What would happen if the Glaciercore liquid was consumed?
A: Nothing apart from ruining your Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can the GlacierCore ever ran out of that secret chemical??
A: Nope! The coolant is permanently sealed inside the GlacierCore.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Just a quick question, if I were to add a little bit of sugar to something not deemed sugary enough to be turned into a slushy, would it still have the same effect?
A: It should, but only as long as the sugar is fully dissolved into the drink.

Q: How long can you use it for
A: As many times as you like!
Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: My sister put the slush mug inner core into the dishwasher. Is it still useable? Please answer quickly!
A: Yes, as long as the GlacierCore is not leaking or deformed
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: why does it slush?
A: The patented non-toxic refrigerant sealed inside the Glaciercore lowers the temperature of the beverage to 34ºF. At this temperature, the ingredients in the drink crystallize and turn the drink into a Slushee. Unlike ice, the Slush Mug won't water down your drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I am confused. Can you put regular ice cream from a bowl into the slushe maker?
A: No. You need to add sweetened drinks, like juice or cola.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why can't you put artificially sweetened drinks in it?
A: Because the artificial sweetener prevents the drink from freezing properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: My apologies if this has been asked before, but what is the minimum or ideal amount of sugar a drink should contain so it can slush properly with the Slush Mug?
A: A can of soda, which is 12 ounces, usually has about 39 grams of sugar in it. That seems like a pretty good amount to start experimenting with.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What if I accidentally froze both parts, not just the glacier core?
A: Nothing. The mug would simply be a little cold to the touch.

Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: Dear,Vat 19 I've been pondering if the slushie stays slush for 2 whole hours could i make a another one?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you freeze flat drinks such as chilled cappucinos, ice teas, etc? Im really interested in buying one but I wanna know if im getting my money's worth
A: Sugar is what is essential to slushing, not carbonation. If a drink has sugar in it, odds are that it will slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: The soda slushee will still taste like a delicious soda. It does not make the soda taste flat.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: The slush mug has a lifetime warranty, so what happens if I have a slush mug and it gets messed up, how do I get it replaced? Also why can't you use diet soda?
A: The Slush Mug has a lifetime warranty against defects, not if you happen to damage it. Diet sodas contain artificial sweeteners which do not freeze the same as regular sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: We freeze the core for the required amount of time, stir accordingly with a permitted beverage (OJ), and only the bottom gets that slush feel. We repeated this with different stir speeds, but the results don't change. Why?

A: We don't have plans for one at this time.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I were sincerely attached to slushing a diet drink, could I add a small amount of sugar to the beverage first and make a successful slushie?
A: That would not only defeat the purpose of a diet soda, but simply adding sugar doesn't necessarily mean that it will work either. You'd need to add a significant amount of sugar and make sure that it's been properly absorbed by the drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you wash the glaciercore with hot water?
A: You may use hot water just as long as the water isn't so hot that it warps the plastic.

Q: how come my glacier just goes in easily in the mug? in the video, tons of ice comes off and it needs a bit of strengh to put it in? my one like with no pressure it just goes in, no ice coming off, is that a problem?
A: It's not a problem. That "ice" was simply condensation.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why does the drink need natural sugar to slush?
A: Because drinks that have been naturally sweetened do not freeze the same as artificial or unsweetened drinks.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I make a slushee and I don't finish it can I store it away in the freezer until later?
A: You can, but it will just turn into a solid block eventually.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If you make a slushee in about 15 minutes, and pop it back in the freezer for about two hours will it be cold enough to make a new one?
A: Theoretically you shouldn't need to freeze the GlacierCore for the full time if you pop it right back into the freezer. As long as the core is solid, you should be good to go.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I bought the slush mug but when I try to make slush it keeps freezing too much and it's hard to eat it when it has been in the cup for too long but it is too cold to be eaten any faster. What to do?
A: As long as you keep stirring the drink it will not freeze entirely. Ideally you will want sizable pieces of frozen drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it possible to make chocolate milk slush?
A: Yep! It's a lot tastier than you'd think.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Couldn't you guys freeze soda into ice cubes and crush them down in a blender?
A: Not really. If you've ever frozen a soda, you'll find that the corn syrup tends to be squished out of the ice since it doesn't freeze. What you'll have then is a cold, syrupy mess. Even if it DID work you'd still have to wait several hours just for it to freeze.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you leave the glacier core out and use it as a regular mug?
A: You could drink out of the shell/mug, but it wouldn't be easy as the rim is not like a normal mug or glass - it has a flat ledge on it to support the Glaciercore.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you re-use the glacier-core more than once?
A: Absolutely. You can re-freeze the GlacierCore as many times as you like.

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long would it take to make a tea slushee, as it starts off hot (as opposed to a coke sitting in the fridge)?
A: It's impossible to slush hot drinks in the Slush Mug. The hot drink would thaw the Glacier Core.

A: We don't have any plans for new colors right now, but we'll definitely keep this one in mind!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it dishwasher safe?
A: Maybe. It's best to hand wash the Glaciercore as some new dishwashers reach such high temperatures that they may deform the core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What would be an ideal way of using the slush like a stirring style of some sort?
A: Stir n' scrape. As you stir the drink, make sure to scrape the inside of the GlacierCore to ensure that the entire drink can come into contact with it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it OK if I leave the Glaciercore in the freezer for over 6 hours or even a day or more? Will the slushee still be awesome?
A: It may not affect your slushy, but leaving your GlacierCore in the freezer at all times ensures that it is always ready to go when you want a slushy.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: is it possible to make ice cream with the slushie mug?
A: Not really, but adding milk makes a drink that is pretty similar to a milkshake!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you drink the slushies from a straw or do you have to use a spoon?
A: Spoon, straw, or heck, pour it straight into your mouth. Just watch out for brain freeze!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why can't we use diet slushees?
A: Because the artificial sweetener prevents the drink from freezing properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much longer will it last then the average slush from a shop or cafe?
A: Probably about the same, though the GlacierCore might keep the slush colder longer.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What if I fill it above the line?
A: It might not slush up properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does limonade work? If so, do I use store brand (like the powder or already made). Or could I just use it homemade?
A: If has sugar in it, then yes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Till what line do I fill the juice/soda to? I got mine yesterday and I see a line. I'm pretty sure that's the line for me to fill it up to. Am I correct? And it won't go all the way to the top. Should I be concerned?
A: Yes, the thin line you see on the inside of the Glaciercore (near the top of the core) is the fill line. You should fill only to the fill line, not to the top of the core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Curious question about tea. I know you've answered as long as tea has sugar in it, it's fine to slush. But what if you use an alternative natural sweetener such as honey or agave nectar. Will it slush? Or do you need the refined sugar?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How come it does not work on diet sodas? That's the only thing my mom buys. PS, can you use sparkling water?
A: Diet sodas do not contain the natural sugar that is needed to crystallize properly. If the sparkling water contains natural sugar, then it should slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why won't diet sodas turn into slush?
A: Natural sugar is needed to slush properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work like this : The more you stir, the more solid it gets? Or does it just do it on it's own no matter how much you stir?
A: You should scrape the sides and stir every few minutes. You don't want to stir it constantly and you don't want to just leave it sitting there either.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Which color of the Slush Mug do you recommend?
A: I like them all, but Blue is the most popular.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If you put snow cone syrup in the mug, wouldn't that just make an awesomer version of a snow cone? Less watered down and all?
A: Probably not. Snow cones are simply cups of shaved ice with flavored syrup on them. A slushy is actually a type of frozen drink.

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: if I melted my worlds largest gummy worm and put it in the mug, will it slush, or will it just turn into a cup of gummy

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I looked up the details of the dishwasher I have. Apparently, it can reach a maximum temperature of 75 C. Would it be safe to put the mug in there?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I keep the glaciercore in the freezer for more then 6 hour (or a few days),what will happen?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: In the video when jamie was putting the glaciercore inside the slush mug it was i tight fit. I purchased one and it fits like a glove even after I froze it. Is there something wrong?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you make a slushie, eat it within 5-10 minutes then straight away pour more drink into the core and slush up again without freezing?Is this possible?Works really well with pepsi by the way!
A: If you're quick, you might be able to get a second slush out of the Slush Mug. Still, even if you have to refreeze the Glacier Core, it shouldn't take the full 6 hours to refreeze if it is still pretty cold.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: 12 ounces, which is .35 liters.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What is this sorcery?!?!?!!?(as in how does it work)
A: The patented non-toxic refrigerant sealed inside the Glaciercore lowers the temperature of the beverage to 34ºF. At this temperature, the ingredients in the drink crystallize and turn the drink into a Slushee. Unlike ice, the Slush Mug won't water down your drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: The only natural sweetener I can think of is sugar. What if someone has diabetes and needs to keep their sugar at a minimum? Are there any no- to low-sugar drinks that work nicely for the Slush Mug?

Q: I made a Monster Slushie, and then i made a redbull one with vodka,it didnt work for redbull with vodka Why?
A: Because vodka has an incredibly low freezing temperature, much lower than what can be reached with a conventional freezer. This makes it un-slushable.

Q: I live in Hawaii, and since this is still the US, will it be free shipping if I bought something that is 99 dollars and more? Like Hawaii is far and it is an island, so wouldn't it be more expensive? Does the slushie taste like ones we buy at stores?
A: Yes, we offer free shipping to Hawaii on orders $99+. The taste depends on what kind of slushie you are referring to. It isn't as airy as a Slurpee from 7-11, but it is not as hard as frozen sno cones or Italian ice cups.

Q: Are you positive that it really works? Because I know the slushy magic people are lying, and thats a piece of pure garbage.
A: We couldn't agree more. The Slush Mug definitely works and does not need a late night commercial filled with frolicking urchins to help sell.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I use the slush mug wit stawz?
A: We think it is easier to eat your slush with a spoon, but you could use Strawz. The more complicated the design, the more effort it'll take to suck up a slush through it!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it be the same if the drink is hot?
A: Hot drinks such as coffee and hot chocolate cannot be slushed.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: My freezer is -10 degrees Celsius. How long does it take to freeze enough to use the glaciercore for slushies?
A: It should take about 6 hours, but your freezer should be set to -23C (-10F) to ensure a thoroughly frozen Glacier Core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is there enything you can do to still have diet soda (coca cola light) and make it into a slushie?
A: Apart from adding sugar, which would completely defeat the point of a diet soda, there is nothing you can do to make a diet slushy with the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work if I use smirnoff ice which is 4% alcohol? :)
A: I can't say for sure, since we don't have any to test with. Generally speaking, alcoholic drinks do not slush very well.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is this better than the Slushy magic? I bought that and i was very disappointed. For it makes little amount of slushee. I am hoping to buy this, Its very cheap, I got the slushy magic for 20.00, and this is 10.00!
A: It's infinitely better. Like I've said before, the Slush Mug does not require any shaking, which makes slushing sodas a lot less messy.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will you guys ever put these commercials on tv?
A: Probably not. Television ads are expensive and nobody watches them anymore anyway.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it dishwasher safe?
A: Maybe. It's best to hand wash the Glaciercore as some new dishwashers reach such high temperatures that they may deform the core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is this like slushee magic or is it better how does it work?
A: It's infinitely better. Unlike the Slushee Magic, the Slush Mug does not require any shaking.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: if i buy 7 of these, drink out of all of them with strawz, while eating a giant Oreo cake while watching Ambient Water DVD: The Ultimate Video Aquarium. on a scale of 1 to 10 how awesome would that be? P.S. do you ship to Jupiter?
A: Numbers don't go high enough to calculate how awesome that would be!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What will happen if i put my gummy worm on a cold surface?
A: Putting the WLGW in the Slush Mug wouldn't accomplish much, but if you were to put it in the freezer it would certainly freeze.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I put it in the freezer with the liquid in for easy making?
A: That will simply result in your drink freezing entirely.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work better or differently with "throwback" soda that uses only real sugar?
A: Not at all. Natural sugar and high fructose corn syrup freeze pretty much exactly the same way.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How did you get it all the way to the top and all over flowing in the commercial if there's a fill line?
A: Because liquid expands as it freezes, making it move up the inside of the Glacier Core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: My sweetener of choice is Stevia. a plant with small green leaves said to be 300 times sweeter than sugar. I buy pure stevia in bulk powder form. There is no other "booster" sweetner added. Will the Slush Mug work?
A: Neither Vat19 nor the manufacturer have tried to make a slushie using Stevia, so we can't say how that would work out.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Blue and purple are my 2 favorite colors. Should I get a slush mug in blue or purple?
A: I'd go with blue. Blue is a very appropriate color for cold drinks.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What if my slush mug, didn't ship to me after 20 days? I used Economy Int'l method. (I miss my mug!)
A: Sometimes international shipments can take a little longer than expected due to heavy volume at your local customs office.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it OK to drink hot drinks like tea out of the original mug?
A: The mug itself is not meant to be drank from. We'd recommend using a different container for your hot drinks.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would it be safe to write my name on the glacier core with a permanent marker? I just ordered one and plan to leave it in my school freezer. If so, do you reckon it would easily rub off the surface? Thanks!
A: A permanent marker like a Sharpie should be fine. I don't think it will harm your Slush Mug in the slightest.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What the hell, I swear this is magic. It never stops working? NEVER?
A: Not as long as you don't break it. Since there are no moving parts or ingredients prone to expiring, the Slush Mug will last indefinitely.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How did you get it to slush over the glacier core top (fill line) like that?
A: Liquids expand when they freeze, which would account for the "overflowing" appearance.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Could i use this to make a Mocha Frappe?
A: As long as you use sugar there are plenty of coffee-based iced drinks that can be made with the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it available in Saudi Arabia?
A: Yes, we do offer shipping to Saudi Arabia as well as over 70 different countries worldwide.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: THANK YOU SOOO MUCH FOR THIS PRODUCT!! you guys are the best website EVER!!!!
A: It's our pleasure! Thank you for ordering!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I mix a diet soda with a regular sweetened drink, could it slush like normal, worse, or not even at all?
A: Probably not very well if at all. Mixing an unsweetened drink with a sweetened one sort of defeats the purpose of using an unsweetened drink in the first place.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much should I fill it up to so it won't overflow?
A: You should fill the Slush Mug to the fill line on the inside of the Glacier Core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Wait you can use regular soda and not diet? Why?
A: Diet sodas and other artificially sweetened drinks will not slush because the artificial sweetener does not freeze the same way as natural sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: did you know that vat19 is the coolest and most awesome place ever?
A: I may have heard a rumor or two similar to that. Thanks!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can you use just the plastic mug as a mug if youre waiting for your glaciercore to freeze?
A: Not really. The mug is really more of a holder for the Glacier Core and not really meant to be drank out of.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will this last forever? I mean, can I reuse and reuse it if I never break it?
A: There is no definitely lifespan for the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can we put diet soda but with more sugar?
A: We haven't tried but I believe that would be defeating the purpose of a diet soda in the first place. Don't forget also that diet sodas are sweetened, simply with a chemical rather than a sugar. I do not know how well one can add sugar to that mix.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Sorry if this question may sound dumb, but if you were to put sugar water in the slush mug, would it turn into a slushee?
A: It may be possible, but the sugar would need to be completely dissolved into the water. I can't imagine it would taste very good anyways.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you send to Europe too??
A: We certainly do! You can view a complete list of countries we offer shipping to here.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: This sounds mad, but, my brother likes eating frozen egg can you put eggs in the slush mug?
A: We honestly haven't tried slushing eggs, so I'm afraid I can't help you there.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Could it do a water slushee?
A: A water slushee wouldn't work because you need sugar for it to slush properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: My freezer only goes to -6 degrees, will it still work?
A: That should still work, though you might need to let your Slush Mug freeze for a little longer.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much soda are you supposed to put in the Slush Mug?
A: There is a fill-line inside the mug that you should fill to.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What is the glaciercore made of?
A: Plastic and a liquid refrigerant. The manufacturer does not disclose exactly what is in the refrigerant but it is completely non-toxic.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I use melted gummy/gummi Bears?
A: No. By the time the gummy was cool enough to be slushed it would simply re-solidify.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I'd like to prank my friend into a tabasco/hot sauce slushie, is there a way for me to add sugar into a hot sauce so it would slushify the "drink"?
A: It may be possible, but I think the smell of tobasco would be a dead giveaway.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I have a slush maker called AUSSIE ICE and well it works like crap! Will your product be more reliable?
A: We've tried several different slushy-making devices over the years and none of them have been as reliable as the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I have 2 glaciercores but only 1 mug Is it possible to order a separate mug by itself?
A: Sorry, but we are unable to sell the mugs separately.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you put the liquid in the glacier core and then freeze it together
A: Yes, but that won't make a slushy. You'll just have a solid block of whatever drink you put in there.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I have an American Express pre-paid gift card and I really want to buy an amazing Slush Mug with it! Would you accept a pre-paid card or only bank Debit/Credit cards?
A: Yes, we accept pre-paid cards!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If you have an unsweeted drink, can you put some sugar in it for it to slush?
A: It's possible if the sugar is completely dissolved into the drink, but it may be easier to simply get a drink that is already sweetened.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What are the vat19 staffs' favorite slushie combinations?
A: They're too numerous to list, but we're pretty big fans of the famous Mt. Dew Slushie!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Wouldn't I also like make the ice outta the same drink and put it in the ice and drink in the blender and make a slushee/Icee and eat it?
A: That doesn't always work. With sweet tea, for example, the sugar tends to separate from the tea which leaves you with slightly gooey ice cubes. Besides, you'd still need to wait several hours for the drink to freeze in the first place.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it safe to put the Slush Mug together with other stuff in the freezer or does it need to be separately kept?
A: It's perfectly safe to keep your Slush Mug stored in the freezer with all the rest of your frozen foods.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you use any drink in the slush mug?
A: Yes as long as the drink has sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can i just leave the whole thing inside the freezer coz it looks very hard to push the white thing in or do i have to leave the container out and put the white thing inside the freezer?
A: It's not necessary but you certainly can. The GlacierCore isn't terribly difficult to fit into the mug, but it does require a little bit of effort.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If it cracks or breaks or has any sort of leakage, while I'm drinking my slushee, will I die if it mix with the super-freezing refrigerant with out my knowledge? How safe is this product?
A: No. The refrigerant in the GlacierCore is completely non-toxic and the GlacierCore itself is very durable. A mini-marshmallow probably presents more immediate danger than the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you have to wash the plastic mug?
A: It's certainly a good idea. Soda and juice residue can get pretty disgusting if not cleaned out.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How is it possible to slush coffee? As far as i know coffee doesn't contain any sugar.
A: Not naturally, but coffee can be sweetened with sugar. If your coffee has been sweetened (and appropriately chilled) it can be slushed with the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: how long exactly do u have to stir is to much hardwork?
A: I wouldn't say it's hard work at all. You just have to stir/scrape the inside of the GlacierCore every once in a while for about 6 minutes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: if you are trying to make a non-sweetened drink slushable with sugar,is it possible to add to much sugar?
A: It could be. It is possible for you to add so much sugar that the drink cannot contain all of it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is green tea ok?
A: Yes, as long as it has been sweetened with sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: why can't we put diet soda? If we do, will it taste bad?
A: Nothing happens, and that is the problem. Artificial sweeteners do not freeze the same way as drinks which are naturally sweetened with sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is the plastic BPA free?
A: LDPE plastic is used in the Glaciercore. It is BPA-free and safe.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does the slush mug work with Energy drinks? such as Monster, Red Bull etc.? and what about Organic energy drinks as well?
A: As long as the energy drink has sugar in it, which those do, the SlushMug will work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is dishwasher safe?
A: Yes, the Slush Mug is completely dishwasher safe.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does this have any chemicals?
A: There are absolutely no harmful chemicals in the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you put water in it and let it freeze and then pour in your beverage or do you not put in water when you freeze it?
A: There is no need to add water. Simply store the GlacierCore in the freezer and then add your sweetened drink of choice once it's completely frozen.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What if I freeze more than 6 hours? Will it break or something?
A: Nope! In fact, we recommend keeping the GlacierCore in the freezer all the time so it's ready to go when you want a slushed drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I've never tried a slushee before. What does it taste like? Does it only sell in the US? I've never heard of it in Singapore-or is it the Slurpee that replaces 'slushee' in Singapore?
A: We do offer shipping to Singapore. A slushee is basically a frozen drink that can be eaten with a straw or a spoon. The closest thing I can compare it to is shaved ice, though shaved ice is usually made by flavoring ice with a syrup.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long will it take until it turns back into a liquid?
A: That depends on how hot or cold it is where the slushee is being stored, so it's difficult to say how long it will take. At room temperature, you should have plenty of time to enjoy the whole thing without it melting.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it possible to slush water if you add sugar to the water?
A: It may be possible, but the sugar would need to be completely dissolved into the water. I can't imagine it would taste very good anyways.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would you ever use this yourself?be honest? :D
A: We've used the Slush Mug here at the office dozens of times! There's no better way to break up the day than with a couple slushy breaks.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: #1 how long does it live? #2 can you put water in it??!
A: With proper care and use, the Slush Mug should last indefinitely. Water alone will not slush, as sugar is necessary for a drink to be properly slushed.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: does the slush mug really work or is it like the one from the commercial
A: Definitely. Unlike late-night imitators, the Slush Mug actually works exactly as advertised.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: In the 70's, they had these in green. Will that be available ever?
A: We do not have plans for a green Slush Mug at this time, but we'll definitely consider it as a possible future color!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you freeze beer ?
A: We've heard mixed reports of it working with low-alcohol content beers, but generally speaking we would have to say no.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Tea Slushies?
A: Tea slushies are a delicious possibility as long as your tea has sugar in it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would the refrigerant explode if exposed to air?
A: No, not that there's any way to expose the refrigerant to air without breaking the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is this a rip off of does it really work cause i don't want to wast the money for it?
A: The Slush Mug works wonderfully. If it was a piece of junk, we wouldn't bother carrying it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: if i were to use a sweetened alcoholic drink such as Bailey's irish creme would it work, or will it be just like any other alcoholic drink and not work? thanks love you guys! ^.^
A: Alcohol lowers the freezing temperature of any liquid considerably. Because of this, alcoholic drinks cannot be reliably slushed with the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do call the drink Soda or Pop?
A: Soda for sure. We know a lot of people who call it "Pop" and every time it still sounds strange.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can rose syrup turn into slush?
A: Probably not on its own, but maybe when added to another drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you have one in green or orange?
A: Sorry, but we do not. Right now the only colors we have are Red, Blue, Purple, and Teal.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So the freezing refrigerant is sealed indise the glacier core for life?
A: Yes. There is no way for the refrigerant to escape the GlacierCore short of actually breaking it open.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: There are three guys who made vat19, and i think their names are jon, joe, and jamie. is this correct? Also all the other extras in your videos what relationship do y'all have with them?
A: Jamie is the founder of Vat19. The rest of us do everything from making videos to taking orders to working in the warehouse.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will anything happen to my Slush Mug if I "over-freeze" the glacier core? Say, leaving it in the freezer over night?
A: Nothing at all. In fact, we recommend keeping the GlacierCore in the freezer at all times so it can always be ready to go.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Hey Vat 19, I froze my insert for 12 hrs and tried mountain dew throwback (real sugar) and it did not work...is it the drink or the insert? Thanks.
A: It could be the freezer. Assuming you're stirring the drink properly, if you freezer isn't set to -10 Fahrenheit, it may take longer for the Glacier Core to become cold enough, if it all.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can it be frozen on its side or will all the freezing liquid settle on one side?
A: It's recommended that the Slush Mug be frozen in an upright position.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: When do you plan to show up on tv?
A: As awesome as it would be to land a spot on television, we do not have any plans for tv ads at this time.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If my slush has melted, can i put the glaciercore in the freezer to reslush it?
A: Only if the GlacierCore is still frozen. If you're eating it directly from the GlacierCore it shouldn't melt too quickly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can you use icecream????
A: We haven't tested the Slush Mug with ice cream, but as long as the GlacierCore remains frozen your ice cream should do well. Ice cream will remain ice cream, however.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work with wine or beer?
A: The alcohol content of wine will prevent proper slushing. As for beer, we've heard mixed reports of it working with low-alcohol content beers, but generally speaking we would have to say no.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: if you drink the slushie would it stay cold enough to add more pop
A: If you're quick, you might be able to get a second slush out of the Slush Mug. Still, even if you have to refreeze the Glacier Core, it shouldn't take the full 6 hours to refreeze if it is still pretty cold.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Im wondering if it is difficult to push the ice core into the mug holder?
A: It's a tight fit, but I wouldn't say that it's at all difficult.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How many glacier cores do you get with this slush mug?
A: Each mug includes one (1) GlacierCore.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why is stirring essential to the slushie? and what happens if you dont?
A: Stirring ensures that all of the drink can come into contact with the GlacierCore. If you don't stir it, you'll just have a thin layer of slush around the edge and liquid in the center.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does this have any chemicals that could harm someone over a period of time?
A: None whatsoever. The Slush Mug is perfectly safe and completely non-toxic.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will you guys sell this mug to the Glee people so they can slush their fellow classmates?
A: That's a pretty good idea! Product placement like that sure would be nice!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can i use the magic milk straws to drink my slushie insted of eating it?
A: Magic Milk Straws really only work with liquids. The beads would prevent any solids or ice chunks from passing through.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I were to leave the Glaciercore outside after 6 hours of refrigerating,how long will it last cold enough to make drinks into a Slushee outside?
A: Not terribly long. You should add a drink to Slush Mug pretty much right out of the freezer.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Um, would milk be kind of gross? Like too creamy and chunky?
A: You mean like a milkshake? Not at all.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it better to add cold or warm drinks when you make a slushy ?
A: Cold, already refrigerated drinks work best.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it safe to wash it with warm water and soap after use?
A: Yes, it is safe to clean the Slush Mug immediately after use.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If i buy 2 slush mugs, and put the 2 frozen glaciercores in say a large bowl, just fitting the 2 cores, is it possible to have a bowl full of slush?
A: The GlacierCores don't really work that way. The drink you're slushing needs to be inside the GlacierCore and occasional stirring is essential.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: When you finally finish your drink in the slush mug and the core is still cold, is it possible to put the drink inside again, and it will still freeze and turn it into slush?
A: If you're quick, you might be able to get a second slush out of the Slush Mug. Still, even if you have to refreeze the Glacier Core, it shouldn't take the full 6 hours to refreeze if it is still pretty cold.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: DANGER! DANGER! THREAT DETECTED! THREAT IDENTIFIED AS SLUSHY MAGIC! HOW DO YOU RESPOND CAPTAIN?
A: Set thrusters to maximum ambivalence. Initial scans of Slushy Magic confirm it is not a threat to the Slush Mug Empire.

Q: can coffee turn into slushees?
A: If the coffee is sweetened and chilled, you would be perfectly able to make a coffee slushy.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long until it will melt?
A: It depends on the ambient temperature where you're eating it, but you should have plenty of time to finish your slushee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with Caprisun?
A: While Capri Sun does have sugar, it's about 1/3 the amount as soda, so it might not slush as quickly or as well.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens if you use diet soda?
A: Nothing happens, and that is the problem. Artificial sweeteners do not freeze the same way as drinks which are naturally sweetened with sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: It has natural sugar so could i put apple sauce in it? its that drinkable natural knid. Or would it be too thick?
A: Apple sauce is already kind of slushy to begin with, though I guess it's worth a shot.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What is a White Russian? Milk with alcohol?
A: A White Russian (my favorite, by the way) is made with Kahlua, vodka, cream and ice. You can use milk instead of cream, but it's not nearly as good.

Q: Where are these products getting shipped from?
A: All of the products we sell are shipped from our warehouse in St. Louis, MO.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why won't the slushee mug work with anything that doesnt contain sucrose?
A: Because the addition of sugar causes liquids to freeze differently and more quickly than those without it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: WHY SHOULD I NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT? HMmmm? :D
A: Because you're saving your money to buy two of them.

A: It's a snug fit but I wouldn't say it's very difficult.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is there different between like the "texture" of the slushee from the convenient store slushee? Like harder, colder, softer? Also, can you mix flavors?
A: Sure you can mix flavors. As for the texture, I would say that it's the same as what you'd get at the store since it's made basically the same way.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you ship to Canada?
A: Yes, we ship to Canada. All of the countries we offer shipping to can be found here.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why can't you put in diet drinks?
A: Diet sodas and other artificially sweetened drinks will not slush because the artificial sweetener does not freeze the same way as natural sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with lemonade?
A: Only if your lemonade is naturally sweetened with sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What would happen if I left the glacier core in the freezer for more than 6 hours?
A: Nothing at all. In fact, we recommend keeping the GlacierCore in the freezer at all times so it can always be ready to go.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: We are in winter as you you know ,so ive been keeping the GlacierCore out of the freezer will it go bad??
A: Not at all. You may store your GlacierCore either in the freezer or in the cupboard. There is no need to keep it cold all the time.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What the difference between slushymagic and the slushmug?
A: They're two entirely different products, for one. Also, Slushy Magic does not work very well with sodas, but the Slush Mug will.

A: We've had mixed reports of beer slushies. If the beer has a relatively low alcohol content it might work, but we cannot guarantee it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So could i just use the mug?
A: Not for making slushies. The mug really just acts as an insulator as well as a way to hold it.

Q: Sooo if you added sugar to a non-sugar drink it would make a slushie still??
A: Only if the sugar is completely dissolved into the drink and if enough sugar has been added.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How does it work?
A: The patented non-toxic refrigerant sealed inside the Glaciercore lowers the temperature of the beverage to 34ºF. At this temperature, the ingredients in the drink crystallize and turn the drink into a Slushee. Unlike ice, the Slush Mug won't water down your drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: Is there anything else the slush mug can't slush and why can't it slush diet soda?
A: Only drinks that are naturally sweetened with sugar will slush. Diet sodas and other artificially sweetened drinks will not slush because the artificial sweetener does not freeze the same way as natural sugar. Also, any drinks with relatively high alcohol contents will not slush due to their very low freezing point.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Sadly no, since aluminum contains no natural sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: It won't keep your slushy cold longer, but it will keep you from needing to wait a full 6 hours any time you want a slushy. We generally recommend keeping it in the freezer at all times so the Slush Mug will always be ready to go.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens when you put diet soda in it?
A: Nothing happens, and that is the problem. Artificial sweeteners do not freeze the same way as drinks which are naturally sweetened with sugar.

A: Sorry, but it's a closely guarded secret of the manufacturer.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: From what I've read, it's the sugar that is responsible for the slushie. So, /technically/, it would work if I used water with dissolved sugar, right? And why doesn't it work with alcoholic drinks?
A: It's possible but it'd probably be pretty gross. Alcohol drastically lowers the freezing temperature of a drink, which is why it cannot be slushed.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you put things like 7-up in there?
A: Sure! Any sweetened soft-drink would be perfect for use with the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. is there something wrong? it works with soda and orange juice but not lemonaid (with real sugar) and sometimes it doesnt work with anything at all
A: Drinks usually require quite a lot of sugar to slush properly, which is why sodas work so well. Instant lemonade usually works much better than natural lemonade that has been sweetened.

Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What if my freezer is 20 degrees farenheight will it still freeze in 6 hours?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can it slush milk and is there any other thing besides diet soda that it can't slush?
A: Milk will slush, as will virtually any drink that is naturally sweetened, however the Slush Mug cannot slush drinks with high alcohol contents. We've heard of people being able to make beer slushies, though we cannot guarantee it will work with all beers.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: Will it still work even though I haven't freezed it for about 5 months?
A: Absolutely! There is no real "lifespan" for the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: By freezing the Glaciercore then putting a drink in just make it really cold. How does it make it like a slushie.
A: It all has to do with sugar. When sweetened drinks near their freezing point, they begin to crystallize in such a way that keeps them from becoming a consistent solid. By stirring and scraping the drink as it freezes, you're essentially creating lots of crystals.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I have a problem. I haven't put my slush mug into the freezer for a LONG time. Will it still work, or is it going to give me salmonella poisoning?
A: The Slush Mug will not poison you. As long as the interior is clean, there is no reason why you couldn't use it after leaving it out for a long time.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I use the mug with diet soda just to keep the soda cold?
A: As a coozie, probably not. If you just want to keep it chilled, I suppose it would work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Sorry for another question, but if you slushify a soda, will it retain its carbonation?
A: The soda slushee will still taste like a delicious soda. It does not make the soda taste flat. However, the consistency of the slushee will not be as light and airy as an Icee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What would happen to a diet soda if u put it in the slush mug like what would it do?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: is it dishwasher safe? and if I leave it in the freezer for longer than 6 hours like 10 or 24 will it crack or break

A: If you're quick, you might be able to get a second slush out of the Slush Mug. Still, even if you have to refreeze the Glacier Core, it shouldn't take the full 6 hours to refreeze if it is still pretty cold.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: Can it work with milk?
A: Yes, the Slush Mug works with milk.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it hard to take out the glaciercore? When you put it in, it looked difficult so won't taking it out be harder?
A: It requires a little bit of strength, but I wouldn't say it is particularly hard or difficult to remove the Glacier Core.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I am really scared to buy it because I'm afraid it won't work... do you have any online proof??
A: The proof, really, is in the video. Believe me, we wouldn't be able to stay in business very long if we sold products that don't work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would snapple lemon ice tea (non diet) work with the slush mug. I love them and I want to try making a slushie out of it.
A: As long as the drink is naturally sweetened with sugar, it will work in the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why is the sugar so important?
A: Because without sugar the drink will not crystallize properly while being frozen.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What drink do you use so it tastes just like a real slushee?
A: You could probably use any variety of naturally sweetened fruit juices to get that authentic Slushee flavor.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I use Dr Pepper in the thingy.
A: Yes, as long as it isn't diet.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you make a slushee with Kool Aid?
A: Absolutely, as long as you've used sugar to make your Kool Aid.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it make the drink very much like a slushie or just a little ice in the drink?
A: It's exactly like a slushy. In fact, it uses the same principle as the giant slushy machines at convenience stores (just not automatic).
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I am planning to buy this as a gift for someone else in a different state than I am in. Is there any way that I can ship this to that person?
A: Yes, we are able to ship to an address which is different from the billing address.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So, say I put an artificial sweetener in some water? Will it slush?
A: No, only naturally sweetened drinks will work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Okay now I know this is nasty.... and Im pretty sure its going to be yes... but do you think it will work with pickle juice?
A: Pickle juice does not contain much sugar and probably will not slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do the different colors vary the times they need to freeze to make a slushy?I know I have to freeze the core but do I also have to freeze the plastic mug in order to make the slushy?And about how many mins of stirring does it take to make the slushy?
A: The color of the mug has no affect on the freezing time of the GlacierCore. It generally takes about 6 minutes of occasional stirring to make a slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you slush milk then drink the milk-slush with the magic milk straws? I haven't bought either yet, but it sounds kinda good.
A: You sure can! That actually sounds pretty delicious, if you ask me.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I've heard dat companies sell your stuff, passing it off as their own-well, on a commercial, I saw Air Swimmers for someone elses company. Explain plz.
A: We're a retailer, not a manufacturer. It's entirely likely that you might see some of the same products we carry elsewhere, just like how you might see the same item from Wal-Mart at Best Buy.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it possible to slush warm honey water?
A: Cold drinks work best. If the honey is properly mixed into the water, and the sugar content is high enough, it should work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long does the glacier core last? Because when I was tring to make a slush it wouldn't turn to ice and I wasn't using a diet soda. What should I do?
A: The Glacier Core should last indefinitely. Make sure that you are stirring and scraping the sides of the Glacier Core when making your slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I'm having a hard time removing the glaciercore, would it be okay for me to run it under warm - hot water for a little while to help remove it easier.
A: A little warm water would be perfectly fine.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will Sprite work?
A: As long as it isn't diet, nearly any soda will work. Yes, that includes Sprite.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work with italian cream sodas?
A: An Italian Cream Soda would probably work, depending on the recipe and whether or not the drink is naturally sweetened.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How do I know if it is cold enough to make one?
A: If you've left your Slush Mug in the freezer overnight, it will almost certainly be cold enough. We generally recommend letting it freeze for about 6 hours before making a slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can this slush wine?
A: The alcohol content of wine will prevent proper slushing.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you use Dr Pepper?
A: Dr. Pepper is a perfect choice to use with the SlushMug!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you pour tomato juice for a tomato slush mug flavor? It's pretty gross but can you?
A: I'm not sure if tomatos have enough naturally occurring sugar to slush, but I suppose it's worth a shot!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you use the cup to hold your own drink like milk in the plastic cup so you get more then one use out of it? P.S. vat 19 is my favorite website!!
A: You can, but it doesn't make a terribly good drinking mug. It's really best used for making slushies.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work with ice tea?
A: As long as the ice tea is naturally sweetened, we don't see why not!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: This...is...AWESOME. Anyway, I placed my order, but i'm wondering, what kind of box does it come in? I've heard that slush mugs don't come in a box.
A: We package them in small boxes for shipment, but SlushMugs do not have their own designer box.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you refill it right after you finish or do you have to freeze it again?
A: If you're quick, you might be able to get a second slush out of the Slush Mug. Still, even if you have to refreeze the Glacier Core, it shouldn't take the full 6 hours to refreeze if it is still pretty cold.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: The "super coolant" in the glacier core is only half way filled, Is this normal or should I order a replacement?
A: This is normal. When freezing, the coolant will expand into the empty space.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I know that the drink you put in needs to have "natural sugar" in it to slush properly. But can it have high fructose corn syrup as most sodas have?
A: High fructose corn syrup is derived from a type of natural sugar, so yes, drinks such as Pepsi and Coca-Cola will work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How did you get the slush to pile up over the rim of the cup like in the picture?
A: Liquids expand when they freeze, which would account for the "overflowing" appearance.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I filled my slush mug watermelon juice made form fresh squeezed water melons but the slush mug wont make it into a slushy like in the picture. Why is this?
A: There are two possible reasons. The first is that there wasn't a sufficient amount of sugar remaining in the juice of watermelon to create a slush. The other is that the Slush Mug was improperly frozen or stirred. Make sure that you scrape the sides of the Glacier Core when slushing a drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much of a can of soda would this hold (in rough percentage)?
A: Both the Slush Mug and an average can of soda will hold about 12 ounces, but because of the way a slush expands as it freezes, we would recommend only using about 3/4s of a can at first.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: 3 questions.Q1: Why can't you use diet soda?Q2: Do you ship to the uk?Q3: Not being a killjoy, but can't you just freeze your favourite drink then blend it?p.s i <3 vat 19 x
A: Diet sodas don't work because sugar is essential to the slushing process and diet sodas possess none. Yes, we do offer shipping to the UK. Freezing a drink and blending it doesn't always work, especially with syrup based sodas. When frozen, the syrup tends to separate from the carbonated water which just makes a gooey mess.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I mix diet soda with sugar would it slush then?
A: It might, but that would sort of defeat the point of a diet soda. The main reason why diet sodas will not slush is because artificial sweeteners do not freeze properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will a drink that says "Naturally and Artificially flavored" work?
A: As long as it contains sugar, artificially flavored drinks will work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would anything happen if I left the glaicore in freezer more than 6 hours? For example 1 month
A: Not at all. In fact, we recommend storing the GlacierCore in the freezer so that you can make a Slushie any time you want.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long do I have to stir it?
A: When making your slushie, you need to scrape the sides of the core and stir it every 2 minutes or so.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I want to make a tea slushie does the tea have to be cold or can it be hot?
A: The tea must be cold. Using hot tea will only thaw the GlacierCore.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What would happen if I blended a pickle, add some sugar, then put it in the Slush Mug?
A: I'm not entirely sure that would work, but it sounds pretty interesting.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: This may sound silly but can I make a purple slush in a red cup or a blue slush in a purple cup? I love vat19 ordering in a couple of days woohooo:D
A: The color of the cup has no affect on the color of the slush. The slush will be the same color as the drink it is made out of.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much drink should I put in?
A: As much as you like, but be careful not to overfill it. When the drink begins to slush up, there will be a bit of expansion.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens if I microwave it?
A: Microwaving your Slush Mug could very well ruin it and possibly your microwave. There is no need to microwave it, so we strongly caution you against it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will you ever make an industrial sized one?
A: Sorry, but we do not have plans for a larger version of the Slush Mug at this time.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What would happen if I put a cake in the slush mug?
A: You would have a very chilly piece of cake.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I'm getting a b-day present for a friend what do you think I should get the slush mug or strawz?
A: That's a difficult choice. The Slush Mug might not get a lot of use when it's really cold out, but Strawz are great all year long!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Couldn't you just use frozen blocks of the juice instead of ice cubes?
A: Sometimes. Because of the sugar content of fruit juices and sodas, they don't tend to really freeze into solid cubes very well. Besides, in even less time you could simply make a slushed drink in the SlushMug!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What if I used water with sugar?
A: It's definitely worth a shot! A can of soda, which is 12 ounces, usually has about 39 grams of sugar in it. That seems like a pretty good amount to start experimenting with.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work if you tried to use a normal plastic cup and a coffee mug?
A: Sorry, but that would not work. The GlacierCore is integral to the SlushMug and cannot be duplicated by simply combining two regular cups.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why does the drink have to have sugar in order to crystalize?
A: Because sugar crystallizes in a very particular way when being frozen. The crystalline structure of the molecules in artificial sweeteners are too tight, and therefore form a really hard ice rather than a full-bodied slush consistency.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: When I added the glacier core, part of the mug itself got all frosty. Is that normal?
A: That is perfectly normal. What you're seeing is likely a little bit of frozen condensation from the GlacierCore scraping off on to the mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is the reason diet drinks don't work because they have artificial sweeteners or because they have no sugar?
A: Both. Artificial sweeteners do not crystallize like sugar when being frozen, and sugar is essential for a drink to slush up.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I have the slush mug and i love it!Thanks Vat19!!!!
A: Awesome! We're glad you like it!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you keep the glaicercore in the freezer the whole night.
A: Yes. Leaving your Slush Mug in the freezer will not harm the mug or the Glacier Core. In fact, we recommend that you leave your Slush Mug in the freezer so that it will always be ready to go when you want a slushed drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would milk or just plain tea work?
A: Milk would work, but the tea would have to be sweetened.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How do you take the glacier core out of the cup after using it?
A: The GlacierCore can be pulled out. It can be a snug fit though, so you may have to put some muscle into it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: As I hear in the video, I couldn't use diet drinks, but could you make a slushie with Coke Zero?
A: Coke Zero is a diet soda. It uses an artificial sweetener.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What are some combos I can use? I have the slush mug but I lost the combo sheet.
A: Luckily for you, we have the sheet available on our site right here!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens if you left it in for less than 6 hours, wil it still slush?
A: 6 hours is the recommended time to completely freeze your GlacierCore. Not all freezers are the same though, and some may be able to freeze it in under 6 hours.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I put orange juice and cocolate milk in it?
A: Sure! Those both sound pretty tasty, actually!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: When I pour my soda into the frozen slush mug, do I have to then put the slush mug into the freezer?
A: You're supposed to put the GlacierCore in the freezer first and then add the drink after the core has frozen.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: You showed an orange slushee mug in the comercial did you ever sell one like that?
A: Sorry, but the Slush Mug is only available in red, blue and purple.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I use the Slush Mug every month, but if I put it in the freezer every month will it break?
A: Leaving your Slush Mug in the freezer will not harm the mug or the Glacier Core. In fact, we recommend that you leave your Slush Mug in the freezer so that it will always be ready to go when you want a slushed drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with Kool-aid?
A: Yes, the Slush Mug will work perfectly with Kool-aid!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it slush pancake mix?
A: We haven't tried that, but you should definitely order one and give it a shot!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can the slush mug make a starbucks frapuccino slushie
A: As long as your drink is naturally sweetened and not hot, you should have no problem making a Slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Question: So, can I make a Mountain Dew Slushee?
A: Absolutely! Mountain Dew Slushees are one of our favorites.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I put ice cream (regular unmelted) in it in the morning how long will it stay like that? And will it stay like normal ice cream, slush or, melt?
A: We haven't tested the Slush Mug with ice cream, but as long as the GlacierCore remains frozen your ice cream should do well. Ice cream will remain ice cream, however.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with milk? XDbtw, you guise are rawrsomely awesome.
A: Thanks! Yes, the Slush Mug works with milk.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: We're happy to hear it! Thank you for the wonderful feedback!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would i get the same effect if I put the glacier core in a different cup?
A: The cup was designed to hold the GlacierCore perfectly. It may still slush, but we can't guarantee the GlacierCore will fit as snugly in another cup.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is this sold in stores?
A: We're not sure of any other stores that carry the SlushMug, but we would be happy to sell you one right here at Vat19.com!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens if you put a diet drink in? Will it still slush or will it stay a complete liquid?
A: Diet drinks will not slush because artificial sweeteners do not crystallize the same way sugar does when being frozen.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work with homemade lemon or lime juice?
A: Juice should work, but you might want to add a little sugar to your juice to better facilitate the slushing process.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much sugar would it take for pure/filtered water to crystallize? (Yeah, I don't like meh drinks healthy. xP)
A: It depends on the size of the glass. A can of soda, which is 12 ounces, usually has about 39 grams of sugar in it. That seems like a pretty good amount to start experimenting with.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does club soda even have natural sugar?
A: Club soda has no sugar in it, so slushing it is not possible.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with tonic water?
A: Tonic water is unsweetened and has no sugar, so it cannot be slushed with the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why can it not be artificially sweetned?
A: Artificial sweeteners do not crystallize the same way as natural sugar when being frozen. It is this crystallization that is essential to the slushing process.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How far up do I fill it with soda?
A: You should be able to fit just about an entire can of soda (12 oz).
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Mine doesnt turn out the one in the video theres only a little ice but its all watery
A: Make sure that your drink is sweetened with natural sugar. You will also want to scrape the sides of the GlacierCore occasionally to allow the rest of the liquid to come into contact with the GlacierCore.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why doesn't it work with diet soda?
A: Diet sodas use artificial sweeteners which do not crystallize when frozen the same way that sugar does. It is this crystallization that is necessary for slushing to take place.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: After the Glaciercore is frozen, how many cups of slushies can you make?
A: Probably two. You can make one, pour it into a different cup, and then quickly make another one. You have to act quick because the Glaciercore needs to be completely frozen solid to work properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I slush water?
A: Sorry, but plain water will not slush. Sugar is required in your drink for it to slush properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you make more than one slushie when you take it out of the freezer?
A: You could probably make two slushies if you pour one into another glass and quickly make another. After that, the GlacierCore probably wouldn't be cold enough.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Let me get the straight. I have to freeze the Glaciercore for 6 hours?!
A: Yes, but once the GlacierCore is frozen you can make a slushed drink in about 6 minutes. Just put the GlacierCore in the freezer the night before and you'll be ready to go!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it come with a lid?
A: No, it doesn't come with a lid. It doesn't really need one, to be honest.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: For sports, can I use Gatorade to slush on hot dayss?
A: Yes, Gatorade will slush due to the amount of sugar it contains.

A: We are not aware of other retailers who carry the SlushMug, but you can always buy them right here at Vat19.com!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens if I put honey in it.
A: It would probably make it even more delicious!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Let me guess you use saltwater inside the Glaciercore to make it ''super cold''?
A: It's a good guess, but it's actually a bit more complicated than that. The GlacierCore actually does freeze and does not just become "super cold".
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I love my slush mug I use it all the time. Will it work if I just put water in it and then apply snow cone syrup?
A: A liquid requires sugar to properly slush, so normal water will not work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it a one slushee type of thing or can you make several slushies as long as you have it??
A: The Slush Mug is reusable. Just wash it out, refreeze it, and start again!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I just leave it in my freezer and use it when ever i want to use it or do I have to store it elsewhere when I'd leave it in my freezer for like days/weeks?
A: It is perfectly safe to store your Slush Mug in the freezer so it can be ready for slushing.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does the Slush Mug work with Monster Engergy Drink? Yes I'm using the green one (normal) so its not diet or anything.
A: We haven't tested it, but judging by the large amount of sugar in Monster Energy Drink, we're pretty confident that it will slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work with a drink with other natural sweeteners such as honey or stevia?
A: The SlushMug has not been tested with stevia, but honey may work. You will want to make sure the honey is completely dissolved into the drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So would it work with with cordial?
A: Cordials will work, given their high sugar content.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I just bought this and I cant wait for it to come in the mail! I've been telling myself I'd buy something from here forever and now I finally did 8). I bought some spitballs too those look awesome! yay!

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can we use this with hot chocolate, to make a chocolate slushee? You know, like after the heat wears off?
A: No, hot chocolate will not work if it is still hot. It will need to be chilled before you attempt to slush it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: why does the slush mug not work with diet soda?
A: Artificial sugar does not crystallize and slush like natural sugar does.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Yes, we think that will help keep your smoothie cold.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: what will happen if you do put diet drinks in the slush mug?
A: The drink will not slush up very well.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How come the GlaicerCore doesn't make the liquid turn watery?
A: Because ice (which will eventually start to melt and water down the drink) is not added to your beverage. The core freezes your beverage enough to make it slushy.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: in the video, i saw tiny chunks of ice fly out when you put it in the mug. is this supposed to happen?
A: That was just some frost on the outside of the Glaciercore getting scrapped off as it was pushed down into the plastic outer shell. It's OK!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: how many glacier cores do you get with each mug?
A: You get one Glaciercore.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long will it take to freeze the Glaciercore after you have used it at least once?
A: It depends on how much it thawed out after that first use. The core needs to be chilled long enough so that it is completely frozen.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with Canada Dry (Which is Ginger Ale)?
A: We have not tried this particular beverage, but as long as it contains natural sugar it should slush up.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can you use apple sauce
A: Apple sauce is already pretty slushy.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: After you put it in to the freezer how long does it take for it to become slush?
A: You do not want to freeze the drink and the GlacierCore at the same time. It takes about 6 hours to initially freeze the GlacierCore, but once it is frozen you can add your sweetened drink of choice and you should have your slush in about 6 minutes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do caffeine free drinks like orange crush work because we have been having a little trouble with but we might not have the core frozen long enough?
A: As long as they're naturally sweetened, it should work. Make sure you scrape the slushing drink away from the GlacierCore so that the unslushed liquid can reach the GlacierCore.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will this work with flavored iced tea (Raspberry, peach, lemon)? This is going to be my first purchase.
A: Sounds delicious! The Slush Mug will work just fine as long as your flavored teas are naturally sweetened with sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Could you smush up fruit like watermelon and make a slushy or would you have to have sugar added to make it work?
A: Yes you can, as watermelon has sugar naturally present in it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is there a way to check every once in a while if the GlacierCore is frozen solid?
A: The GlacierCore should remain frozen for quite a while at room temperature, but once you have a liquid in the Slush Mug it makes removing the core a little difficult. Just make sure that it is completely frozen before each use and you should be fine!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If you were to not be using your slush mug because its winter so you leave the glacier core out of the freezer for a month or so will it still freeze back and make a delicious slushy when you want one?
A: Yes, the GlacierCore will refreeze even if it hasn't been frozen in a long time.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I know there is nothing wrong with the core but it didn't take 6 hours to completely freeze my core... it took 1 day!!! Is it because of the temperature of the day?
A: Outside temperature shouldn't have too much of an affect on your freezer, but you may want to check your freezer's manual settings to make sure it is cold enough.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Could this work with Arizona Green Tea?
A: It should. Arizona Green Tea has a pretty decent amount of sugar in it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: There are some parts of the Glaciercore that aren't hard. Is this normal?
A: It sounds like the GlacierCore might not be freezing completely. You should try either leaving the GlacierCore in the freezer longer or adjusting your freezer setting.

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: would a mountain dew slushee taste awesome? also if you live in the uk when you purchase the slush mug does ita convert into pounds instead of dollars automatticcaly?
A: Awesome wouldn't begin to describe it! To answer your other question, we do not automatically convert currencies on the site. You can, however, hop on Google and get a quick currency exchange rate. Just enter "$9.95 in pounds" into Google and you should have your answer!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Cant you just use diet soda and then add sugar to the mix ;P
A: That probably wouldn't work as well if the sugar isn't completely dissolved. Besides, if you're going to just add sugar anyways, you might as well just use a regular soda!
Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What does it taste like if you put milk or chocolate milk in it? Also, why can't you use diet sodas?

Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: does it work with club soda?
A: We have not tried to make a club soda slushee, but as long as it contains natural sugar it should slush up.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So if you put juice in this and you don't eat it and it melts, will it taste the same as the original juice? And then out of curiosity why doesn't diet anything work?
A: It should taste the same, but we haven't tried that - we eat slushies when they're slushie! Artificial sugar doesn't crystallize like real sugar does.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it clean when you get it?
A: It is clean in the sense that it is unused, but you should wash it before using it.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Yes, that should work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will the soda slushees stay carbonated, like a slurpee? Can you drink it from a straw?

Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: I got this last week and it's awesome. The glacier core definitely has to be frozen solid otherwise it won't slush. (I was impatient and didn't wait long enough when I first got it baha.) This is totally worth buying, especially for the summer!
A: Definitely! Glad you're enjoying it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it have to be six hours until it turns into a slushee?
A: The Glaciercore needs to be frozen solid before you can attempt to make a slushie. Usually this takes 6 hours in the freezer (sometimes longer, sometimes shorter). Once the Glaciercore is frozen and you pour in your drink, it only takes 6-8 minutes to make your slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: will it work if i put chicken noodle soup in it??

Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Yep, you sure can. As long as the drink contains natural sugar it should slush up nicely.

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens if you leave it in the freezer for more than 6 hours?
A: It'll be fine. You can keep it stored in the freezer; there is no limit to how long it can remain in the freezer.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Yep, you sure can. It would turn out delicious - a chocolate milk slushie!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: when it's finished freezing, can i put it in a different container?
A: You can certainly pour the slushee in a different container after you make it. The shell is sized to perfectly hold the core, but if you have a different container that holds the core nicely you could use that.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: are you serious when you said no diet soda?
A: Yes. Diet soda does not slush up very well.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will the Plastic Mug keep things warm and hot too?
A: The plastic outer shell is not insulated and is not intended for hot beverages.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why can't you make diet soda slush is?
A: Because diet sodas do not contain natural sugar, and natural sugar is what makes a good slushee. Artificial sweeteners result in icy shards rather than good slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How full should you fill the cup if you want the slushy to fill the whole cup?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: is it hard to put the glacier core in the mug after being frozen since i am 11 on my moms account think this is a good idea but am afraid i cant use it

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I made a milk slushie, could I use the magic milk straws?
A: I don't think the Magic Milk Straws would work very well if the milk was slushed up. It would be very very difficult to sip.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: WUT IF U ADD SUGER TO WATER?!?!?!?!?!?! sry for caps
A: We haven't tried making a slushee with just sugar water, but we think it could work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What do you do exactly to make it the slushi perfect?
A: Always use drinks that have natural sugar. Make sure the core is frozen solid. Pour in your drink and stir occasionally (not constantly). Let the slush form around the outer edge of the core and then scrape it down and stir so the rest of the drink can slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: When I make a Slushie with this, it usually forms a hard ice around the outside and still just juice or soda. I can crush up the ice along the side with a grapefruit spoon and it gets kind of slushie, but is there any way I can avoid this?
A: When making your slushie, you need to scrape the sides of the core and stir it every 2-3 minutes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can you make a slushy with propel zero?
A: We have not tried that. Keep in mind that beverages with natural sugar content slush up the best. Diet drinks with artificial sugar do not slush up very well.

A: No, the Slush Mug does not have a lid.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will any condensation form on the slush mug?
A: Any condensation that would form on the outside of the Glaciercore would be caught by the mug's outer shell (the colored part with the handle). There's some space between the core and the shell, so condensation shouldn't form on the shell.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: can I freeze the glaciercore for more the 6 hours?? oh yeah if a have milk and turn it to a slush can i use magic milk straws

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: i have the slush mug, and i just had a lemonade slushie... what will happen if ice is in the soda? will anything bad happen?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How come I froze my glacier core for 10+ hours, and when I pour in my beverage it won't turn to slush?
A: The temperature of your freezer matters as well. The freezer needs to be cold enough to freeze the core completely solid. If the core is rock hard and your beverage has natural sugar and you're still having issues, please contact us so we can look up your order and assist you further.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Of course!
Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: How does the glaciercore work? I wanted to know cause I like Science.
A: Sorry, the manufacturer does not disclose the Glaciercore's secret.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Could this work with strawz? and btw i saw your warehouse is in st louis if your office is there can i have a tour?

Q: Do you add water in the glacier core, or all you have to do is put a beverage and the glacier core turns it into a slushee . Also my mom is going to buy one for each of my 3 cousins will they fight if they each get a different color?
A: You do not need to add anything to the Glaciercore; you simply put the core in the freezer. Once it is frozen solid, you add your beverage. Hopefully they won't fight about the color - they should be happy just to have such an awesome slushee mug!
Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: What is the difference between regular soda and diet soda regarding the Slush Mug? Regular soda does have artificial sweeteners, doesn't it?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What are the dimensions of the plastic mug and the glaciercore?

Q: What is the consistency of the milk slushes? Is it a slush consistency or more of milkshake consistency?
A: It is more like a slush rather than smooth and creamy like a milkshake. Stirring more frequently will make it smoother.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will this work with beverages with artificial sweeteners in it?
A: It can, but it won't give you the best slushee possible. Artificially sweetened beverages make a hard ice rather than a soft, full-bodied slush consistency.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you drink the slushy through a straw?
A: You could, but it wouldn't suck up as easily as liquid. We prefer a spoon.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How many times you can use the glacier core before u need to re-freeze it again? and plus, I am buying the Tyvek wallet and the rubiks cube clock. Thanks guys!!

Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: what would happen if I put a totally melted convenience store slushy in here? would it be reincarnated as a cold slushy?
A: We think so! Keep in mind it does not make the consistency of a Slurpee, which is much more fluffy and airy than a slushee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does the orientation of the Glacier Core inside of the freezer matter? E.g. standing upright, on it's side, upside down etc.
A: It is best for it to stand upright so the refrigerant freezes the entire bottom of the core. If you freeze the core on its side, part of the the core will not have the frozen fluid in it.

Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: couldnt i just freeze my drink in a normal cup and then put in in a blender to make it a slushy? it seems cheaper if you already have a blender.
A: Maybe, but then you're dirtying more dishes, and it's a pain to clean out a blender. Plus, it's not as fun.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: after you freeze it for 6 hrs. and you you use it can you use it again while its still cold to make another slushie? or do you have to freeze it again????
A: You can make another slushie if you do it immediately. The core needs to be frozen solid to work properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I ordered one! But I still have to ask to make sure--does this work on Mountain Dew? Because I love Mountain Dew and would be very sad if it didn't work on Mountain Dew.

A: Because those are the colors that we are able to buy them in! The manufacturer does not make the Slush Mug in green, yellow, or black.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long will it take to make 8 slushies for 8 people?
A: We haven't tried to make 8 slushies in a row, so we aren't sure. You could make 2 in a row without refreezing the core, but you'd probably need to refreeze it after that. If you need to make that many at the same time, we suggest buying several Slush Mugs.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can the slush mug freeze outside in the snow during the winter and how long would it take?
A: We haven't tried to freeze the Glaciercore outside. How long it would take would depend on how cold it is outside.

Q: I have a slush mug from the 70's and still use it. I keep the core in the mug while in the freezer. Is there a reason that in this newer version the core stays in the freezer separately?
A: We consulted the manufacturer, and as far as they know the directions have never called for putting the entire mug in the freezer, but it wont take away from the slushing effect. The core is removable so it can fit on the freezer door and take up as little space as possible.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will you please write a rap about the slush mug? just typing it out here will work. I'm sure you all, being as creative as you are, could come up with one.
A: Slush Mug, Slush Mug, you make my slushee icy cold. You might be from the 70's but you don't seem old. I gotta have sugar to make a slushee right, keep my core in the freezer 8 hours overnight.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I found a gas station that sells slushies in a large size for cheaper than this. I also don't have to buy drinks and have to wait 6 hours and then another 6 minutes to make one. I also love using the machine why should i buy this?
A: Because you only have to buy the Slush Mug once. You have to buy the slushies at the gas station over and over again, therefore spending more money in the end.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If i keep the core in the freezer for say, over night. will it be any different than for 6 hours?
A: If the core gets completely frozen within 6 hours there would not be a difference if you froze it longer. The core needs to be rock-hard frozen to work properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you mix drinks in it?
A: You can mix drinks in the Slush Mug by stirring them, but it will not mix drinks on its own like a blender.

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work on zero calorie drinks like coke or sprite zero?
A: We don't have either of those drinks here to test, but if they do not contain natural sugar then they won't slush up like a regular soda would.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: if u finish the the slushee before the 2 hours is up, can u make another one right after
A: If you want to make 2 slushees without refreezing the Glaciercore, you would need to make one slush, dump it out into a different cup or bowl, and then immediately make the second slushee while the core is still completely frozen.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why diet soda is not good to put there? If I put diet soda , What will happen?Can I put Sprite?
A: Beverages with natural sugar content work best, which diet soda does not have. Diet soda would not slush up as well as a regular soda. Yes, you can use Sprite.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: what are some recipes for the slush mug
A: A bunch of yummy recipes are included with the mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does how fast the drink slushes based on its sugar content? So, would a drink with more sugar slush faster than one with less sugar? How much sugar should the drink have to slush properly?
A: No, more sugar won't make it slush faster. The sugar content makes it a smoother slushy (that you can easily eat with a spoon) rather than being hard and icy.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can i use gatorade in my slushy?
A: Although we have not personally tried it, it should work.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: You could, but it would be awkward because the mug has a ledge for the Glaciercore to sit on.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does the reason that artificial sweeteners wont slush have something to go with the colligative properties of aqueous solutions and how stoichiometrically high molar concentrations of solute depress the freezing temperature?

Q: After you took the core out of the frezer, what was the shavings comming out of the core?

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How tall is the glaciercore? And would I be able to freeze it on its side? Thanks!
A: The Glaciercore is about 6 inches tall. If you freeze the core on its side, part of the the core will not have the frozen fluid in it. We haven't tried it, but we think it might not slush up quite as quickly.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: Can you use Mountain Dew?
A: Yep. Sodas with natural sugar work great.

Q: In the video, it says you can transform ALMOST any beverage into a slushie. Are diet beverages the only drinks you can't turn into a slushie with the Slush Mug, or are there others?
A: If a drink contains natural sugar, then it should slush up nicely. Diet drinks do not slush up very well and water does not slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I just bought a slush mug recently and i was worried whether the mug will not work if i didn't use it for more than 2 months? It is unused and new, but i would also like to know whether if a used mug will work too after storing for 2 months.

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you like make a slushie 2 times without re-freezing the core?
A: If you quickly make one slushee, dump it out into a different cup, and then quickly make another one it should work. The Glaciercore needs to be completely frozen solid to work properly, so you can't wait very long between slushees.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can i have it for free?
A: Nope. No freebies.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you only get the one core per mug? Wouldn't it be a better idea to sell two centres per mug that way one is freezing while you enjoy a nice slush and so you don't have to wait another 6 hrs?
A: The Slush Mug consists of one core and one shell.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does a order come with a spoon? And will water start to form outside the mug after a period of time?
A: No, a spoon is not included. Any condensation that would form on the outside of the white Glaciercore would be caught by the mug's outer shell (the colored part with the handle). There's a bit of space between the core and the shell, so condensation shouldn't form on the shell and it'll prevent your hands from freezing.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with blood? Would it be a great gift for a vampire?
A: Yuck! We've definitely never tried to make a blood slushee nor would we want to.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it break if you drop it? Will the slushee stick onto the cup when it is overchilled?
A: The Slush Mug is durable but we won't say it is unbreakable. The slush starts to form on the sides of the Glaciercore, so you should stir it occasionally (while scraping the sides) to get a nice consistency.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What about Diet drinks?
A: Diet drinks will not slush up properly since they do not contain natural sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: After I pour in my drink of choice and then mix it up to the right consistency and pour out then put it back in the freezer and repeat process every say 5 to 10 minutes would I be able to drink slushees all day long

Q: Is the plastic toxic? And does the two thing break easily?
A: The Slush Mug is non-toxic. With normal use, both pieces of the Slush Mug would not break easily.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I'm really cold now. That was a terrible idea outside while it's raining.
A: Yep, slushees are cold!
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Yes, that recipe is included. 6 oz skim milk, 2 oz orange juice, and 1/8 tsp vanilla extract. Yum!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: would it work with Gatorade or any other sports drink?
A: If the drink has natural sugar in it, then it should slush. We personally have not tried using Gatorade, but customers have told us it works.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Who would you recommend this product for when looking at age range,and is it really as fun as it seems; a yummy slushee made in 6 minutes, I want to get one for my daughter on her birthday who is turning 12 and very active would it be good for her?
A: The Slush Mug really is as fun and yummy as it seems! It's a great gift for people of all ages (including a 12-year-old) since it is so easy to use and there are so many different types of slushees you can make.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you reuse it?
A: Yes, you can reuse the Slush Mug over and over again. Of course, you'll have to refreeze the Glaciercore periodically.

Q: does it work with gatorade? (it has natural and artificial.)
A: It should work. We haven't tried it though.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Your product description says that the plastic mug is insulated but a previous BQ said it was not; clarification, please? I'm simply wondering if drinking out of the mug itself is feasible and food-safe.
A: The white Glaciercore does not touch the sides of the outer shell (the part with the handle that is either red, blue, or purple) so this prevents your hands from getting cold as you enjoy your slushee and the heat from your hands doesn't warm up the core. You could drink out of the shell/mug, but it wouldn't be easy as the rim is not like a normal mug or glass - it has a flat ledge on it to support the Glaciercore.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Are slush mug slushes splenderifious?
A: If "splenderifious" is like "splendiferous" but even better, then yes.

A: Holy cow, I'm not sure I want to find out!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you use coffee in the Slush Mug? And how come you cant use diet soda; what other drinks can you not put in it?
A: Yes, you can use coffee but you would need to add sugar or cream to it and should let the coffee cool down first. Diet soda does not have the natural sugar content required to make a full-bodied slushie. Aside from beverages made with artificial sweeteners, those with no sugar content, and water, just about any other drink should work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you put yogurt in this and make "frozen yogurt"
A: The manufacturer said that yogurt will slush up, but we haven't tried it ourselves so we haven't seen the results first-hand.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: We have not tried this ourselves, but our manufacturer said that yogurt will make a slushee.

A: Nope, it is meant to be in the freezer!
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Nope. You simply lift the white Glaciercore out of the outer piece with the handle. Check out our video to see how easy it is!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will Gatorade work to make a good slushee?
A: We haven't tried it, but it should work since Gatorade has sugar in it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens with hot chocolate?
A: If you wanted to use hot chocolate, you should allow it to cool down before pouring it into the Slush Mug. Or you could just use chocolate milk!

A: No. We're fast, but not that fast.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work with just plain old water?
A: Plain water doesn't have a natural sugar content, so it would just freeze up. It would not have the soft consistency of a slushee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why do people beat a dead horse with the diet drink thing? Nooooo diet drinks don't work! LOL
A: I think people just want to make absolutely sure. Plus, it's possible that not everyone has time to read the BQ. That's alright, we don't mind answering.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What if I put soup in it...
A: Then I guess you would have icy soup, which sounds pretty gross.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: My sister-in-law who lives with us is pregnant and sick with a fever. Can I put water in this and make sure she drinks it soon, so as it EXTRA cold. Because when i was observing the slushifying process, it took a little while for the slush to form.
A: Some slush will start to form right away, so she can eat the slush as it forms. A full slush takes about 5-7 minutes to form.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it always the same person answering these questions? Because if it is, then I commend you for your good grammar.
A: Thank you. There are two people answering the questions, and then a third who proofs them before they go live.

A: Sorry, we don't have any plans to sell a green Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: why wouldn't i just freeze the soda/beverage in an ice cube tray, and then blend it?
A: You could do that, but using the Slush Mug is much easier. No ice or blender is needed and it is really fast!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: the Slush Mug can make Redbull slushee?
A: Although we haven't tried it ourselves, we have had customers who tried it and said it worked well.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: what happens if i leave the glaciercore in the frezer longer than 6 hours
A: Nothing. You can leave the Glaciercore in the freezer 24/7. That way you'll always have it ready for a slushee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: is there a way to be able to sell this stuff kind of like but way better than avon?

A: Sunkist slushies are awesome! Making it quickly at home makes it even more awesome!

Q: Would this help me in killing zombies?
A: You could throw slushee at them to startle them and cause a distraction, but we don't think it would kill them.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: do you have to freeze the slush mug
A: You do not need to freeze the outer mug (the part with the handle). The removable white Glaciercore needs to be frozen solid.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I pour all my pain, sadness and sorrow into the Slush Mug, will it make a slushee out of it?
A: We doubt that your pain, sadness, and sorrow are naturally sweetened, so no.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I've noticed some other people asking if energy drinks work,so i tested it myself. I tried red bull, and while it looked like pee, it slushed nicely and was quite enjoyable. slush mug ftw!
A: Thanks for letting us all know!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Isn't the refrigerant under a lot of pressure and therefore somewhat dangerous? BTW does it come with danger instructions? I dont think refrigerant like fire...
A: The Glaciercore's contents will not catch fire and are not under pressure; it's simply sealed shut so it doesn't leak and cannot be opened.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I accidentally got brain freeze, how do i fix this problem?
A: Some ways to alleviate brain freeze are pinching the top of your nose, drinking a warm beverage, massaging the back of your neck, or pressing your tongue (or thumb) to the roof of your mouth.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you create the slushie and toss the whole thing back into the freezer to create a more frozen italian ice concoction?
A: You could make a slush and then put it in the freezer so it gets even harder. The manufacturer recommends pouring the slush out of the Slush Mug. You'd have to check on it so that it doesn't freeze solid like a popsicle though.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Ew coffee? YOU CAN SLUSH COFFEE? AWSOME!!!!!
A: Yep, you can make a coffee slushie. (at home while avoiding the Starbucks hipsters)
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What if I put in sugary water? would that slush up because theres sugar in it?
A: If the sugar content was high enough it would make a bland, but full-bodied slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: why dosent it work with diet drinks?
A: Diet drinks don't have the natural sugar content needed to create a soft, full-bodied slushie. Diet drinks make hard, icy slushies.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: so can you only use the Glaciercore once?
A: No, the Glaciercore can be refrozen and used over and over again.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I love you
A: Ditto.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: coffee slush... sounds disgustingis it?
A: A black coffee slush probably wouldn't work so well because there's no sugar in it. We made a frappuccino slush and, well, I thought it was delish. Others didn't like it so much.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you make slushies from lemonade? I'm so excited cuz I'm getting this in TOMORROW!! :D

Q: Can I slusheefy yogurt?
A: Although we have not personally tried this, the manufacturer informed us that yogurt will slush up.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: would hot drinks like tea work?
A: We have not tested the Slush Mug with a hot beverage. You should use a chilled or room temperature beverage for optimum slushing.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can you make snow if you put water into the slush mug?
A: No, it would simply freeze since water does not contain sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: do you guys use it yourself?
A: Yep. We love slushees!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Would a chocolate milk slushy taste good? Just out of curiosity, would an iced tea slushy taste good? What about apple juice? Sorry for these questions, but this thing seems way too good to be true!
A: Those would all make delicious slushies!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does water work? You said no diet beverages but what about water?
A: Water won't really slush well. It'll freeze, but it will be more like icy shards rather than soft slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: could i keep the Glaciercore in the freezer all the time and just take it out whenever i want to use it (like once a week)? or would that damage it or make it crack?
A: Yes, you can keep the Glaciercore stored in the freezer so it is always ready when you want a slushee. It is intended to be frozen!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you have a slush mug recipe booklet on sale?
A: Although we do not have a recipe booklet for sale, the included instruction sheet contains a 10 slush recipes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is this your favorite product?
A: It is too difficult to choose just one, but the Slush Mug is among my favorites! I can't resist a quick, easy, and inexpensive slushee!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: what if you melt your favorite ice cream and then pour it into the slush mug? will be like a milkshake?
A: We have not tried this, but the manufacturer said ice cream mix will work in the Slush Mug (with more frequent stirring), so we don't see why melted ice cream wouldn't work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can the outer core also be used as a mug to serve hot coffee or tea?
A: The plastic outer shell (the colored part with the attached handle) is not insulated and is not suitable for hot beverages. Additionally, the rim has a lip on it to hold the white Glaciercore in place which would make it difficult to drink out of.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I add more sugar to my cola myself, will it slushee-fy faster? And can you keep the core in the freezer for more than 6 hours? And also if I put a diet somthing in it, it is easy to clean out?
A: We haven't tried adding more sugar to a soda, so we aren't sure about that one. Yes, you can keep the core in the freezer for more than 6 hours, which is the minimum number of hours it should be frozen. If the core gets sticky, fill it with warm water and soap and let it sit for a while. Keep in mind that diet soda or artificially sweetened beverages do not slush as well as naturally sweetened ones.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work with milk? Cause I love milk...
A: Yes, you can make a milk slushee. That's a pretty fun way to get your calcium!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: In the picture, why is it that the blue one appears more slender than the red? Is it just camera angle, or are they actually like that?
A: All Slush Mugs are the exact same size and shape. The mugs were photographed at slightly different angles.

Q: will you trade me 3 mars bars for a slush cup ?
A: Ooh, tempting. But no.

Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can you make a slushe with green tea
A: If the green tea contains natural sugar or you add sugar to the tea, then it should make a slushee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What would happen, if, say, the GlacierCore's plastic casing were to break and release the chemicals? I know that it's non-toxic, but wouldn't it contaminate the drink in some way? Taste or otherwise?
A: The non-toxic contents of the Glaciercore will make your drink taste bad, which is done intentionally to make you aware of a leak.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will you answer this?
A: Yes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Don't you guys get tired of answering the same questions over and over again?

Q: Can I make a coca-cola slush with it?
A: You sure can and it is delicious!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I was wondering, could this turn any home made beverages into a slushee? Could it also turn any non-diet beverages into a slushee?
A: As long as the beverage is naturally sweetened, it should make a slushee.

Q: im from england but i REALY want a slushie mug so how can i pay?
A: You can pay with a credit card or through PayPal.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So if I put the glacier core in the freezer for 6 hours, is it only a one time thing?
A: You can refreeze the Glaciercore over and over again. If you quickly pour out one slushee and pour in more of the beverage, you could get more than one slushee out of a single freezing. Also, it isn't going to take 6 hours to refreeze after you make a few slushees. In fact, it may only take 20-30 minutes to refreeze in order to make another batch.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: why do we have to wait 6 hours for the white thingy to freeze ps BRAIN FREEZE AHHH IT HURTS
A: The Glaciercore needs to be completely frozen to make an awesome slushee in just minutes. Just keep it in your freezer and whenever you have a slushee craving you'll be able to make one quickly!

Q: Im seriously craving one of these things. So im going to buy one in a few days! :D

Q: Can you make a pee slush or a poop slush
A: That's disgusting.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens if you do use diet? will it explode?
A: No, it won't explode. It just won't slush as nicely. It'll be more like hard ice crystals rather than a soft slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does apple juice work?
A: Yep, apple juice will work. Fruit juices can take longer to slush up than soda because they have a lower sugar content.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Could this be used to reconstitute a melted slushee?
A: If you have a melted slushee, it should slush up once you pour it into the completely frozen Glaciercore.

Q: BRAAAAAIIIIINN FREEEEZZZZZZEEEE
A: Ow.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: will i become a fat nerd if i buy 20 of these?
A: Buying Slush Mugs will not make you fat or a nerd. However, if you ate 20 slushees every single day, you might get fat. We don't think eating slushees is nerdy at all - it's awesome.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: will it work with milk? [I LOVE MILK SOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!]
A: Yes, you can make a milk (or even better, chocolate milk!) slushees.

Q: Wow! This thing brings sexy back!
A: Oh yes, it does indeed.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is it possible to make a slushie, eat it in 10 minutes, and make another right after? Just redo the process?
A: If you want to make multiple slushees without refreezing the core, make the first slushee and pour it out into a different cup. Then immediately pour another beverage into the Slush Mug (the Glaciercore should still be freezing cold) and make the second slushee. The second slushee might not slush up as quickly or as well as the first one.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Are you good at COD6??
A: Unfortunately we are much too busy here at Vat19.com to brush up on our Call of Duty skills.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: ok, so am I supposed to put the whole thing in my freezer for six hours, THEN it will make the slushie in 6ish minutes? Or did I understand wrong?
A: You only need to freeze the white Glaciercore. The outer shell does not need to go in the freezer. The core needs to be completely frozen (which typically takes about 6 hours) to make a good slushie in mere minutes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will this work with a nice red wine?
A: The alcohol in the wine prevents it from slushing. You can make alcoholic slushees though - for example, you can make a slushee from a margarita mix and then add the alcohol to the slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why do people ask the exact same question as the person 4 questions above them?
A: There are a lot of Burning Questions for people to read through if they are looking for an answer. We completely understand if they want to save a little time and fire their question to us.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: when you have added the drink do you just leave it for a bit.
A: It's best to stir the drink occasionally to speed up the slushing process.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: In your opinion, which color is better?
A: Blue is slightly more popular, but all colors provide the same awesome results.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What was the weirdest flavor you tested with the slush mug?
A: Some people hated the frappuccino slushee I made, but I thought it was delicious!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: hi just wondering do you need to stir beverage with a plastic or metal spoon or is there no difference, i remember having one as a child and it came with a plastic colour coded spoon
A: You can use any kind of spoon you like! You could even use the front-loader spoon from our Constructive Eating Utensil Set (wink, wink).
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is there possible way to make the slushee last for more than 2 hours?
A: Once the core is frozen solid, it is as frozen as it will get. Unfortunately we aren't able to break the laws of physics to extend a slushee's lifespan.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why doesnt it work with diet sodas?
A: Diet sodas do not contain natural sugars, which are necessary for creating a soft and full-bodied slush. Water alone, or water with artificial sweeteners (i.e. diet soda), will freeze too tightly in the Slush Mug, and you'll end up with something much more icy, rather than slushy.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is the slush mug made of phalate free plastic?
A: The Slush Mug does not contain phthalates.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: would it work the same if i remove the refrigerant and make my own inclosure like a sealed bucket to make more slush? and the last six digits of your # is my birthday. lol.
A: Cool about our phone number and your birthday! But not cool about removing the refrigerant from the Slush Mug Glaciercore. Please do not pierce or intentionally break the Glaciercore in order to remove the refrigerant. It's non-toxic, but it would be messy and just not good.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does the Slush Mug work by using a supercooling-like process.
A: The Glaciercore is what makes the Slush Mug work so well. It contains a super-freezing and non-toxic refrigerant. Once frozen, this refrigerant is able to magically turn your drink into a delicious slushee!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I had one of these when I was a kid. I am ...say over 40 now. I would suggest having two so you don't have to wait to have another, you can rotate them in the freezer!

Q: This sounds just like my ice cream maker (except that mixes itself) If I wanted, could I use this to make little servings of ice cream, just like the big one?
A: We haven't tried it ourselves, but the manufacturer said ice cream mix will work in the Slush Mug. You just have to stir it more often to make it smooth.
Was this question useful? Yes No

Q: When you say coffee slushee, do you mean pouring in coffee, or pouring in the ready-made frappaccino glass bottles from Starbucks? Frappaccino slushee sounds good:)
A: We tried it with one of the Starbuck's bottled Frappuccinos and it worked well. You can use regular coffee, but you'll need to let it cool first and add cream and sugar. The more cream you add, the better the slushee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: When using soda to make a slushee, do you lose the carbonated taste? i.e. like the taste of a good icee?
A: The soda slushee will still taste like a delicious soda. It does not make the soda taste flat. However, the consistency of the slushee will not be as light and airy as an Icee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I am buying this as a gift. Does it come with some kind of instructions on how to use it?
A: Yes, there is an instruction sheet that also includes some delicious slushee recipes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I make another slushee if I made one and I still want more or do I have to freeze the glaciercore before making another one?
A: If you make a slushee in the Slush Mug, dump that one out into another cup, and then immediately pour another drink into the still-freezing-cold Slush Mug, it will still make another slushee. It might not slush up as quickly or as much as the first one though.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: The slush mug works on sunny D and koolaid. But, it doesn't work on soda. I tried everything but it still doesn't work. Why?
A: Are you using diet soda? Diet drinks do not work well in the Slush Mug because they don't contain sugar, and sugar is what helps create a full-bodied slushee. We've used the Slush Mug with root beer and coca cola with awesome results.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you use a straw to drink the slush or do you have to use a spoon?
A: A big straw may work, but for us a spoon works best.

Q: My mom & I are 1 a day coke "Icee" addicts, are the consistencies similar? Also, I've never had brain freeze, never. Could YOU, the slushie 'xpert, please explain to me what it feels like? Best! -Ti
A: An Icee is more airy than a slush. We're confident that if you love Coke Icees that you'll also love Coke slushees. Brain freeze feels like a brief, sharp, and intense pain in your brain. It's not a good feeling, so you're lucky that you've never felt it!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is a LARGER version of the Slush mug available?Can I use lemonade in it?
A: We do not have a larger Slush Mug. Yes, you can use lemonade to make a lemonade slushee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: You know the syrup they use to make sno cones? Will it work with that if I mix it with water before putting it in the mug?
A: Snow Cone syrup works well with the Slush Mug. You need to use 25% syrup for a smooth slush. The best and fastest slush time is when you use Seltzer water with the snow cone syrup. The bubbles help speed up the slushing.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you use Strawz to drink it? Or do you have to let it melt a bit?
A: Drinking your slushee with a straw is possible, but we'd rather use a spoon. To making using a straw easier, you could let it melt a little.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will I like this thing? If I make a pee slushee, will you think less of me?
A: You won't just like the Slush Mug, you'll love it! I don't want to think of you making a pee slushee at all!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can we in norway use it?
A: Yes, you can use the Slush Mug anywhere! As long as you freeze the Glaciercore and use a naturally sweetened beverage, you should get a delicious slushee.

Q: Could I make Snapple Ice Tea or Nestle Ice Tea into slushi using this mug?
A: If those beverages are naturally sweetened (contain natural sugar), then they will work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is there anything cooler than the Slush Mug? In the entire world?
A: Delicious slushees in just a few minutes is pretty hard to beat, but the World's Largest Gummy Bear does give it a run for its money.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can this work on rice water? Or tamarind water?
A: Sorry, neither Vat19 nor the manufacturer have tested these types of water with the Slush Mug. Keep in mind that the beverage needs to be naturally sweetened to work properly.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with monster energy drinks???
A: We have not tried to make a slushee with Monster, so we can't say for sure how it would turn out.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you make an alcoholic Slushee with the Slush mug?
A: Oh yes! You can make alcoholic slushees including Margaritas, Pina Coladas, and White Russians.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you use frozen drinks (like lemonade/limeade in a can)? And if so, how?? Thanks
A: If you make juices from concentrate (frozen in a can) they should work just fine. You would just need to make the juice and pour it into the Slush Mug. We don't think using the solid "chunk" of juice concentrate would work very well!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is this stuff safe? will there be any contamination with the drink?
A: Yes, the Slush Mug and the Glaciercore are safe and non-toxic. The Glaciercore's contents are sealed so they do not mix with the drink.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is there any known cure for brain freeze? I have a VERY LOW pain tolerance. Also, I love my brain.
A: There are a few ways that can help get rid of brain freeze: pinch the top part of your nose, drink something warm, massage the back of your neck, or press your tongue (or thumb) to the roof of your mouth for about a minute. You could also try to avoid getting brain freeze in the first place by eating slowly and trying not to let the slushee touch the roof of your mouth.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: The Slush Mug reminds me of an ice-less ice cream machine, those machines don't make ice cream well but make great frozen yogurt. Does it seem like this might be the case for the Slush Mug?
A: The Slush Mug makes great slushees! It is not going to make an airy Slurpee or Icee-like consistency though.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I put white milk it it, would it be like vanilla ice cream?
A: No. Ice cream isn't made out of just milk, so you'd end up with a milk slushee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: It should come with a recipe book!
A: It does! The Slush Mug comes with a small pamphlet that gives a few suggested recipes like Orange Creamsicle and Mocha Ice. YUM!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What if I bought one of your World's Largest Gummy Bear and put some of it in the Slush Mug?
A: You'd end up with a really hard, really cold piece of the World's Largest Gummy Bear.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Did the guy in the video really get brain freeze?
A: Of course! We're all about "method acting" here at Vat19.com.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I put my taco in it would it create a taco slushy?
A: Is it a liquid taco?
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Could God use this product to make a slushie so awesome that he, himself, could not drink it?
A: That would we awesome if God would endorse the Slush Mug! We think God could drink any slushie he wanted to.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: The Slush Mug is only available in this 12-ounce size.
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: Say what?
Was this question useful? Yes No

A: We certainly can. Please click on the green "Calculate Shipping" button near the top of the page to find out your shipping costs and delivery time.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can I buy more then one core?
A: We do not sell the Glaciercore separately.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I understand that artificial sweeteners won't work, but what about natural ones like Stevia? Could this be substituted for sugar in something like lemonade to make a lower-calorie slushie?
A: Neither Vat19 nor the manufacturer have tried to make a slushie using Stevia, so we can't say how that would work out.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is this product good for the environment?
A: All components of the Slush Mug are recyclable. The refrigerant inside the Glaciercore is non-toxic and will not harm the environment or humans.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Where do you find all these amazing and unique products?!!
A: We bust out our Nancy Drew glasses and search all over for the coolest stuff. Lucky for you, we make it all available right here at Vat19.com!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Wow! Six minutes, that's fast! Can I make my protein drink into a slushie?
A: We haven't tried to make a slushie with a protein drink, but if it contains real sugar, then we think it should work.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I put a cup of coke in the freezer, it will freeze solid into a block of ice. Why is it that the slush mug will turn it into slush instead?
A: The Slush Mug crystallizes sugar rather than freezing it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: that was a stupid idea!!!!!!!!!!!!
A: The Slush Mug is a stupid idea? No way! Homemade slushees in mere minutes without any hassle or mess is a fantastic idea.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: what is the "super freezing refrigerant" inside the glacier core?
A: The freezing refrigerant inside of the Glaciercore is made of a secret formula (which the manufacturer does not disclose) that is patented.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What happens if you stick your finger up against the Glaciercore and hold it there?
A: It would get extremely cold and if your finger was wet, it could freeze to it. Why would you want to do that anyway?
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I just wanted to say that I thought it was really nice of you guys to answer everybody's questions !!! Also, thanks for all of the information on the Slush Mug...it was very helpful :)
A: You're welcome! We're glad all of this Slush Mug information helped you out!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Could I put ice cream mix in this and make soft serve?
A: Although we have not tried it here at Vat19, the manufacturer says ice cream mix works quite well, but it must be stirred more often to make it smooth.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you buy the slushie mug anywhere for a lower price?
A: We have not seen The Original Slush Mug available at a lower price. We hope you'll become a Vat19 customer!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long to you need to put the glacior core in the freezer?
A: On average, it takes about six hours to initially freeze the Glaciercore. But, this process can be sped up or slowed depending on the temperature of your freezer. You just want to make sure that it's frozen solid.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What is inside the Glaciercore?
A: The Glaciercore of the Slush Mug contains a super-freezing and non-toxic refrigerant.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: how do u make it
A: Making a slush with The Slush Mug is super easy! Freeze the Glaciercore, pour in your drink, give it a few stirs, and devour!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Neat concept. I don't see a lid, however. Does it come with one?
A: No, the Original Slush Mug does not come with a lid.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work with liquor? Like say I wanna make a slushy margarita (with tequila) or pina colada (with rum)....?
A: Yes, the Slush Mug can be used with liquor.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: why do you keep trying to confuse people by saying a regular soda is not artificially sweetened? does coke count as an artificially sweetened drink? YES. High fructose corn syrup. do your homework.
A: You've just unleashed our inner scientist, so watch out! High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is indeed a natural sweetener. It's simply a combination of fructose (sugar found in fruits) and glucose (a naturally occurring monosaccharide). HFCS is not to be confused with artificial sweeteners such as saccharin. In fact, "sugar" (derived from sugar cane or sugar beets) is a 50-50 combo of fructose and glucose whereas HFCS is simply either 42% fructose / 58% glucose or 55% fructose / 45% glucose. HFCS is made from yellow dent corn whereas saccharin is made from methyl anthranilate. So, you still think HFCS is artificial? Piece of advice: Next time you start pointing your finger, do YOUR homework unless you want to get served ;).
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why won't it work with diet soda...is their anything I can do
A: You probably could use a diet soda in the Slush Mug, but be warned that it will not yield great results. The slush will be much more hard and icy, rather than the soft, full-bodied slush you would get using a naturally sweetened drink. For some reason, it's the sugar that yields a great slushee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: is it possible to make a tea slushee with the slush mug?
A: We don't see why not. A sweet tea with lotsa sugar would be delish.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: can u put lemonade in it
A: Of course! As long as it's naturally sweetened lemonade, it would make an amazingly refreshing slush, perfect for a hot summer day.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: i watched the video and why not use diet soda?
A: Diet soda does not have the sugar content required for making a slushee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you ever get annoyed answering the question about why you can't use artificially sweetened beverages when the question has already been answered in the product description?
A: No, we just want to make sure our customers are always well-informed about the product they are purchasing.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: my mom said it wont work... if it doesnt can i send it back?
A: Yes, the Slush Mug has a lifetime guarantee. We also want to mention that we have never had a Slush Mug fail (so long as the drink being used had a high enough natural sugar content).
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How come you cannot use diet soda or sugar free products?
A: Sugar-free drinks do not yield the optimal soft and full-bodied slush that naturally sweetened drinks do. They make more of a hard, icy slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will the Banana Bunker save my bananas from turning to slush in this!! I need to know if this is banana safe!!
A: The banana will not turn into a slush. The Slush Mug cannot make a slush out of a solid piece of fruit. It's not a blender!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: is the inside core made of toxic material, so that if it were to crack or get smashed, i should be learey of the chemicals?
A: The refrigerant inside the Glaciercore is non-toxic, so no worries!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I'm on a weight loss program and I used things like crystal light. I understand that you can't use anything with artificial sweetners (why is that?), but can I freeze water and stir the powder?
A: Natural sugar is what makes the slushie soft and full-bodied. Water alone, or water with artificial sweeteners, will freeze too tightly in the Slush Mug, and you'll end up with something much more icy, rather than slushy.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: what will happen if i pee in the mug???
A: You will have a nasty, pee filled Slush Mug! No, we have not tried to make a pee slushee.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I want to make low-sugar lemonade slush. If I combine Splenda and sugar for sweetness, what's the minimum actual sugar amount necessary for high-quality slush?
A: The sugar quantity depends on what you're trying to Slush. It would be a trial and error to find out what makes a Splenda and sugar lemonade into a good slushie. The manufacturer recommends starting with 5% sugar.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I have a slush mug and I love it! I actually got it 4 years ago, but it still works like new. I've given about 5 to my friends. It's really neat!
A: We're glad to hear you love the Slush Mug!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If you break it open, is the stuff inside toxic?
A: No, the refrigerant inside of the Glaciercore is non-toxic.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you make a slushie with just water so its kinda like snow?
A: Not really. Drinks with sugar content yield the most full-bodied slushees in the Slush Mug. Plain water would tighten up too much and become just icy. If you want snow, though, check out our Insta-Snow. You can create realistic-looking "snow" in just seconds!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How well would a martini slush work?
A: We haven't tried it, so we can't say for sure, but we think it would work. If you try it out, let us know how it goes!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: what would happen if a pet or animal were to accidentally crawl inside while the glacier core is cold? becuase i have LOTS of hamsters crawling about the place and jeff is usually very wild
A: We hate to say it, but it might freeze to death or drown. Don't let Jeff or any other animal crawl into your Slush Mug. Dead animal slushee wouldn't taste good.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Anyone wanting a sugar free slushie MIGHT try stirring in a spoon or two of the soluble fibers, like Benefiber. I haven't tried it, but thickeners like guar gum will mimic the body that sugar has.
A: We haven't tried this either, but thanks for passing along a suggestion to our customers!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: how about fresh fruit that has been pureed, either with splenda, stevia added or just its own natural juices? Will it make those into a slushie as well?
A: Yes, slushees can be made with pureed fruit. We've also been told that mixing fruit puree with carbonated water works great.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Does it work better if I store my soda's in the fridge before using them in my Slush Mug?
A: Your soda does not have to be cold, but a cold soda will make a slushee a little faster than a room temperature soda.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Hello, Can i buy this product from out the netherlands ??, I hope so. Best wishes, Angie
A: We're not aware of a place in the Netherlands that carries the Slush Mug, but we can certainly ship one to you!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I mix the ingredients for a smoothie into the blender, then into the Slush Mug, would I get a nice cold smoothie/slushy?
A: Sure! As long as your smoothie has some sugar in its ingredients, it should slush quite nicely.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will it work with alocholic mixes?
A: Absolutely! The best mixes would be with higher sugar content, like daiquiris or pina coladas.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: does coke count as an artificially sweetened drink?
A: No. A regular Coke will make a delicious slush! A diet Coke, on the other hand, will not be as successful.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: I am so hurt! Why won't the Slush Mug work with artificially sweetened drinks? I am a diabetic and couldn't wait until you got more in stock, now I am crushed...
A: Sorry, artificially sweetened drinks just don't have the sugar content required to make a slushee. These kinds of drinks will result in hard ice rather than a full-bodied slush.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If you wanted to make a coffee or tea slushee, you'd have to add sugar for it to freeze properly?
A: You would have to add milk or sugar to it.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Do you have a bulk rate? I'd like to buy one for my whole soccer team!
A: We do offer bulk order discounts. For details, please call us at 1-800-476-1991.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So it takes about 6 hrs to freeze the core & you get only one mugful of slush. Why wouldn't you simply stick a bucket of juice in the freezer for a few hours & then just stir that up?
A: The core stays frozen for a long time, so you could easily make more than one mugful of slush per slushing session. Also, after the GlacierCore is frozen, it's not going to take long to refreeze it after you've made a few Slushees. Basically, the six hour freezing is a one-time thing. The Slush Mug makes soft, ready-to-devour slushees, and that's something you wouldn't really get from a frozen bucket of juice.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why do you actually answer every Insane,crazy,question that people ask?
A: Because you just never know when someone is serious about their question, even the insane and crazy ones.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So, what if I just want some plain, slushy...water? The slush mug should work with just good ol' h2o, right?
A: Water will freeze too tightly and will not form a slush. The drink needs to have sugar content.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Ha, this is brilliant do you answer every inane question that people ask?
A: Yes, we answer practically every question our customers ask.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: does it work on soup?
A: It would depend on the soup. For example, a tomato or cream soup should work since milk-based products work well in the Slush Mug. However, we don't know why you'd want cold, slushy soup!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If I were to use an energy drink like Red Bull or Monster, would the ginseng and other things that give the drink that kick still be intact if I used the energy drink in The Slush Mug?
A: The Slush Mug will not alter the ingredients of the drink. However, we have not tested the Slush Mug with an energy drink, so we don't know how slushy it will get.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is this product as Kick-butt as it seems to be?
A: Oh, it is even MORE Kick-Butt than it seems! If you buy one, you can see for yourself.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will this be made available in the UK anytime soon?
A: We're not sure of a brick-and-mortar store in the UK that carries the Original Slush Mug, but we do ship worldwide, so we can certainly get one to you!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: So wait... The Glaciercore holds 12 oz.. Yet a 12 oz can of soda won't fit? doubleyou..tee..eff..
A: The GlacierCore holds 12 ounces of liquid. However, it can't physically house a soda or beer can. So, while the liquid contents of a 12 oz can of soda or beer will fit inside the GlacierCore, the can itself will not. Basically, the GlacierCore is a little thinner and a little taller than a standard soda can.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can it work with chocolate milk , to make something like ice cream?
A: You could make a slushee with chocolate milk, but it would not be the same consistency as ice cream. We made one with Frappuccino and it was delicious!
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will regular consumption of slushees wreak havoc on one's teeth?
A: Slushees won't be any worse for your teeth than the beverage itself. If you don't brush your teeth, then yes, all of that sugar will not be good for your teeth.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: why won't it work with artificially sweetened beverages? Why couldn't I make a slushee out of my fave Crystal light? please explain
A: Drinks made with artificial sweeteners don't have the sugar content needed to make a great slushee. The crystalline structure of the molecules in artificial sweeteners are too tight, and therefore form a really hard ice rather than a full-bodied slush consistency.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: why does it work on mt Dew but not as well on ginger ale and fruit juices? it took like an hour before it was slushy when i used cranberry apple juice.
A: Fruit juices will take longer (although it doesn't take anywhere near an hour!) than sodas because they have a lower sugar content. Rest assured that juices will definitely make slushess in the Slush Mug.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: What type of plastic is used to make the Slush Mug Glacier core? (is it BPA free)?
A: LDPE plastic is used in the Glaciercore. It is BPA-free.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: WILL THE SLUSH MUG WORK IF I USE SPLENDA? I AM DIABETIC
A: We have not tried to make slushies with Splenda since it is not recommended. However, the manufacturer said people have made slushies with beverages that contain Splenda but that the result is not as consistent as it is with other beverages.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: HiDo you ship these to the UK or do you have an outlet here ?
A: We do not have an outlet in the UK, but we do ship worldwide, so we can certainly get a Slush Mug to you.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Is this the same Slush Mug I used as a child in the 70's?
A: Yep, The Original Slush Mug is still going strong.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: If we cannot use diet soda, that means I can't use crystal light in this huh? :(
A: The manufacturer does not recommend using artificially sweetened drinks in the Slush Mug because they do not yield the ultimate slush. It is not as soft and full-bodied as a slush made with naturally sweetened drinks. You could certainly try to make a Crystal Light slush, but we cannot guarantee that you'll have the best results.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How long do you have to stir?
A: After you pour your beverage into the Slush Mug's frozen Glaciercore, you'll want to stir it every 2-3 minutes until you reach the desired slush consistency. For us, this took about 6 minutes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A: Is this outburst from excitement or fear? It should be from excitement, because the Slush Mug is crazy awesome.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can you drink it with a straw?
A: You could use a straw, although we prefer using a spoon. The Slush Mug makes really good frozen slushies, not watery ones.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Why does it have to be a "non-diet" beverage?
A: For some reason, artificially sweetened beverages do not slush as well as naturally sweetened ones. If you're looking to avoid high sugar content, you can try coffee or chocolate milk slushees.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Can I make a slushee out of booze?
A: Yes.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: How much liquid does the mug (with glaciercore) hold?
A: The Glaciercore has a capacity of 12 ounces.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: Will a 12oz soda/beer can fit inside the Glaciercore?
A: No, a standard 12oz soda can will not fit inside of the Glaciercore. The can is just a little bit too big.
Was this question useful? Yes No
Q: why wont it work with artifically falvored stuff?
A: Drinks with artificial sweeteners do not yield the same soft, full-bodied slush that you'd get with a naturally-sweetened drink. This doesn't mean you have to use a drink with high sugar content such as soda. You can also try chocolate milk or coffee slushees!
Was this question useful? Yes No
