Eating healthy can raise questions such as, "Are crayons a fruit or a vegetable?" and "How many steaks does a growing baby need?" Answer culinary questions with today's deal: for $2, you get a slush with two mix-ins at Kelvin Natural Slush Co. (a $4.50 value). Operating as a mobile street vendor, Kelvin's big blue truck docks in the Flatiron District (5th Avenue and 22nd Street) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from noon to 8:30 p.m. The rest of the week, the truck's location can be pinpointed by calling the Slush Phone or online through its Twitter handle.
A free-spirited operation, Kelvin provides all proximate pedestrians with fresh, all-natural, certified Kosher slushes worthy of a lap around the tongue. At each leg of its rolling journey, the truck stays stocked with flavorful bases such as spicy ginger, tangy citrus, and green and black tea, all of which can be paired with real fruit puree mix-ins ranging from pear, to pink guava, to white peach, to caramelized pineapple. Depending on the season or the horoscope of Kelvin's driver, creations can also veer into oncoming lanes of lusciousness with such selections as mint, basil, or ice cream to make your slush a float.
Because Kelvin Natural Slush Co. was born as a traveling taste-sensation, the excitement of encountering the big blue street-whale is but the beginning of an indulgent, yet healthy experience. Track the truck during your next urban safari or stop by its mainstay in the Flatiron District—either way, Kelvin and crew will be pleased to greet, sweet slush in hand, high-five hand in the air, and confident nod of encouragement in your direction.
The Street Vendor Project recently named Kelvin the Best Dessert in the sixth annual Vendy Awards. Kelvin has gotten a lot of great media attention, and the New York Post included it in its NYC's Best Icy Desserts feature. Yelpers give it an average of 4.5 stars:
- This drink was very refreshing on a warm Summer night. And it tasted very light and natural that I would not feel guilty drinking them every day. – Sandy C., Yelp
- Although summer is very nearly out the door, in the car, and on her vacation, I still feel that I will still be making my way to Kelvin come colder weather. – Jenn L., Yelp
