In 1970, Will Radcliff - from Cincinatti - was at a Chicago trade show when he made a culinary discovery: a slush machine. Radcliff enlisted the help of his mother and sister to brainstorm some names for his would-be slushy drink. They came up with the idea for Slush Puppie, which would feature a cartoon dog as their mascot and logo. Shortly thereafter, Radcliff invested all the money he had (a sum total of $970) and founded the company. When Slush Puppie started there were only four flavours: cherry, grape, orange, and lemon-lime.
