I drink a lot of water.
Slushy is basically flavoured sugar and crushed ice
That brain freeze effect is nice on a real hot summer day, you know when it's 45-50C outside and you are literally a water faucet and dripping from the 80-99% humidity -
It's crazy the amount of artificial CRAP there is on the market, millions of different products, now synthetic flavours is the trend - people like that stuff, and the big food scam - foods trying to make you less guilty by writing big bold letters, "now 50% less sugar" - well sure, 50% less sugar, but it's still 5000% more sugar than you should eat in one day
Even the so-called freshly squeezed orange juice or any juice is not natural - all juices are non natural, they boil the real ting and it goes through a process to remove oxygen, and flavour, all of it, and it sits in vats for a year or two, then they add the fruit flavour profile packets back in . So what people are drinking is flavoured stagnant water that sat in a vat for 2 years and not FRESHLY squeezed OJ - BUT the good news is, 1) It tastes better than the freshly squeezed OJ, and 2) The flavour packets are made from the natural orange, probably peel.
OR you buy products and it says "Made with actual fruits" - but if you read the fine print, it's actually 1% real fruit 99% artificial. BUT you feel GOOD about the fact you are getting SOME real fruits
Some people make their own healthy slushies at home - with real fruits and stevia, but the commercial ones you get in a fast food chain or store are basically food colouring mixed with corn syrup, fructose and sugar
