*NEW* Assorted Coca-Cola® Slushies – $6.00
For the Flower & Garden festival, you have the option of Coca-Cola, Wild Cherry, Orange Cream, or Piña Colada flavored slushies. You can also then pick from candy pebbles (much like Nerds candy), gummy blossoms, gummy butterflies, and assorted fruit slices.
Pina Colada Fanta Slush – $6.00
There are infinite combinations of options at Cool Wash for their Flower & Garden slushies, but we wanted to come try the Piña Colada based slush. When you order the slush, you take your receipt to the CM and then they customize your slush as you want. You can mix the flavors and add as many toppings for the same price.
We went with the piña colada since it’s the only flavor they’ve never done before, well, they have orange creme and wild cherry this year and in past years have had “orange” and “cherry” but we assume it’s basically the same. We topped it with a bright red butterfly that we thought popped with the yellow tinted Fanta.
As we ordered piña colada, the Cast Member let us know that they didn’t think it tasted much like pina colada and was more of a lime/lemon profile. This was spot on. It doesn’t taste anything like piña colada. We were trying to convince ourselves there was a hint of pineapple or coconut in there, but it tastes like lime. Almost Sprite-like, but a stronger flavor.
There are infinite combos, but we added butterflies, flowers, and fruit slices. All the gummy pieces are high quality. They’re soft and chewy and of course, aesthetically pleasing. With all of the various colors present in the slush itself, we couldn’t help ourselves but take pictures of it next to the various gardens around the area.
But, if you spend your time taking too many pictures, the gummies float to the bottom of the funnel-shaped cup. We thought the slush was good, but if you were looking for piña colada flavor, you will not find it here. We honestly thought it tasted more like an icy lime Dole Whip with a somewhat sour twist from the gummies. Overall, it did the job and cooled us off on this hot spring day!
