When you think of Nordstrom, you probably think of its amazing shoe department, fabulous clothing and accessories — but probably not slushie machines. But, low and behold, the retailer now sells an ICEE Slushie Making Machine — and customers are curious. In fact, more than 1,000 people seem to be looking at the machine at any given time.

But, it’s no mystery why: ICEEs are incredible.

You probably remember ICEE machines from movie theaters and sports games — you know, normal events in pre-COVID-19 times. But now, you can make your own ICEE slushies at home. You can finally mix the red and blue flavors together, and there’s no one stopping you.

The countertop-sized machine is great for small gatherings and outdoor parties. Simply mix water, ice and your favorite ICEE flavoring syrup and let it blend. The syrups are sold separately, but you can purchase a set of blue raspberry and cherry for $18 at Nordstrom, too. The machine makes one half gallon of slushies at a time, which is about four 8-ounce servings.

Needless to say, reviewers are mixed one this one. Some customers complain that it doesn’t make enough at a time for a party while others say they prefer to use a blender. But keep in mind, this is a novelty item. Sure, you probably don’t need it, but it is very fun to have.

You can get yourself an ICEE Slushie Making Machine for $115 at Nordstrom today and start making slushies ASAP. Get it for summer pool parties, barbecues and, well, just because it’s awesome.
