God Does Exist

Slush Puppie, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

Holy cow, the gas station at 15th and U has Slush Puppies. I haven't had one of the years in years. I thought for sure they went out of business. They are the gold standard of sugary frozen drinks. Slush puppie would be to Slurpie as Chateau Neuf de Pape would be to Mad Dog. (Ed note: I am assuming Chateau Neuf de Pape is good wine because it is from a Beastie Boys song.) Point is Slush Puppies are damn good and I can't believe they still exist. I highly recommend Blue Raspberry.

FYI, it is Ch√Ęteauneuf-du-Pape.

[sniff] Thanks for that bit of info - I haven't had a Slush Puppie in years, perhaps decades since I last saw a "High's" store.

I saw that someone down Sherman had thrown a Slush Puppie cup on the ground. Imagine my mixed emotions of anger for the litter and hope that Slush Puppies still exist.

Bless you, sir, for posting the location. Blue Rasberry is my fav, too. I don't know that I've ever even tried the other flavors.

I'd like to go up and get one, but, ironically, it's too hot to be out there.

Oh, High's... I've seen a couple out in the boonies (somewhere near Ellicott City, maybe?) in the last few years, but I don't know if they're still around. I do miss them. But I vote cherry on the Slush Puppies.

Arthur's Grocery on 11th and Lamont has a Slushy machine as well.
