1. Who founded ICEE? Top
The idea for ICEE began in the late 1950’s when Omar Knedlik, the owner of a Dairy Queen in Coffeyville, Kansas placed some soda pop bottles into a freezer. He pulled the bottles out of the freezer and discovered a cool new frozen product. He served the new concoction to some customers and they absolutely loved it!

7.Why doesn't ICEE make a sugarfree/diet ICEE? Top
Diet or sugar-free ICEE’s are currently not available. Sugar actually plays two roles in the production of ICEE. First, it helps make ICEE taste great and second, it acts as a “freezing control.” Without the exact amount of sugar, ICEE would freeze up too hard and would not dispense from the machine to your cup. A lot of research is being conducted to make a sugar free ICEE, but so far, no sugar substitutes have been found that carry the same freezing properties as real sugar.
