Slushies.
You gotta love them. Shaved flavoured ice. Brian freeze. What's not to love?

I would like to see a slushie machine taken to the next level.
One compartment makes the slushie as per usual, but an other compartment creates shaved frozen CO2 at a rate to equal say one fifth of the rest of the confection as flavour is added.

This will keep the slushie colder for far longer than it currently stays frozen.
There would be a vapour trail spilling from your cup... maybe even geyser-ing out the straw.
Brain freezes would become even more intense!

Sublushie!

You know you want one.

       This will end up as a carbonated drink.

       The use of dry ice would allow the freezing of water-ice with a significant ethanol content, so [+].

       I just want 2.5 cents every time one is sold.
I was going to go for 5 cents, but that would greedy.
  

       Wait, why must you freeze Brian? Did he request freezing before death until a cure could be found for his boredom?

       Ice in your drinks, 8th? And you a proper Englishman?

       //why must you freeze Brian? //   

       Doh!   

       I'm leaving it...
...for prosperitousnicity...
  

       Sorry Brian's of the world. My minds made up. You'll all just have to pick another name if you don't like it.   

       Nope, too late. No amount of bribery would suffice to make me change my mind...   

       ...but should any Brian so choose to attempt plying me with obscene amounts of cash to do so I can be reached through clues on my profile page.   

       Not that I would 'ever' even on the off chance consider such a proposition, but I like to leave my options open...   

       ...you know?   

       You 'do' so...   

       ...friggin liars.   

       // Ice in your drinks, 8th? //   

       No; [2fries] idea is for an edible semi-solid, not a liquid beverage. We are suggesting that a wider market can be accessed by having an alcoholic* version of the product.   

       *either "a product containing alcohol" or "a product attractive to alcoholics"; both options are acceptable.

       [2fries] You're not thinking big!, 0.5 a cent.

       “...edible semi-solid, not a liquid beverage...” -8th of 7, Aug 17 2020   

       Good point. Calibration is tricky though. 80-proof spirits start to freeze around -10 Fahrenheit, and higher ABV has to get even colder. But anything under -4 can burn your tongue. So you have to let your Balkan 176 Sublushie melt a bit before it’s safe to slurp.

       // Calibration is tricky though. //   

       Did we say it would be easy ? No, we didn't. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, shirley ?   

       Useful safety tip: if it's a really hot day, no matter how uncomfortable, we strongly advise against getting a plastic cup of orange drink from the vending machine, grasping it in a pair of tongs while holding a screwdriver blade down the centre, lowering it into a container of liquid nitrogen, bringing it out, peeling off the now-brittle plastic, and licking it.   

       Oh, how we laughed, right up until the ambulance came to take him to the hospital ...

       Wow, this makes my brain and teeth seize up just thinking about it. + I'll have a cherry one, please.

       Of course not, you silly budgierigar - that's not how you make a liquid nitrogen cocktail or ice cream (link).   

       (and a moment of quiet contemplation for the recently departed MB/PhD - who would have had much to contribute on this topic)

       [+] cola, green tea, decent lemonade... all carbonated and minimally - if at all - sweetened.
