Brain freeze

It's been hot in Vancouver this week—32 degrees Celsius on our back porch most afternoons. One thing I regret as a diabetic is that I can't have a Slurpee—and it's unlikely a diet version will come anytime soon. The main reason slush drinks stay semi-liquid is their high sugar content. Trying to make one with sugar-free pop syrup just leads to a big flavoured chunk of undrinkable ice. (I've tried.)

UPDATE: The diet Slurpee has existed for some months now—as Google would have told me if I'd just looked. But I've never seen one in Canada. Perhaps I can find one next time I travel to the States. Thanks, Fazal.
