These days, gourmet food trucks all are the rage. In fact, one can find just about any type of cuisine on a truck. The one thing lacking from the food truck scene, however, is fine beverages. Well, until now.
A former lawyer in Manhattan has set his eyes on the mobile slushie industry. Named after the Kelvin scale (science geeks unite!), Kelvin Natural Slush Co. hit the streets of NYC this month, offering a more sophisticated version of a childhood favorite — the slushie.
“Q: Are all your Kelvin employees really trained ninjas who have traded in their ninja masks and killer ways for a life of peace, safety and slushies?
A: Yes. This is absolutely true.”
Kelvin slushies are prepared with only all natural ingredients and all natural cane sugar — without any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. The slushies are also made with pure filtered water. Each custom-made icy beverage starts with one of three slush flavors, with which customers are given the option to mix in real fruit purée or ice cream.
Some even suggest spiking the slushies with booze. And that’s when the real party starts. For more information on Kelvin Slush and for truck location updates, visit Kelvin on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
