TULSA, Oklahoma -

The birthplace of the Icee is just up the road in Coffeyville, Kansas.

The Chamber of Commerce, a litter over 70 miles away from Tulsa, just got a brand new machine last month, after two and a half years of convincing the Icee folks.

"We need an Icee machine, it's our history," says Samantha Kudrick.

Well, the story is — and it's right on the wall next to the machine — Omar Knedlik's drink dispenser broke down, so he put some Coca-Colas in the freezer.

When he served them, they had a slushy consistency.

Folks loved them.

So he went to work creating the machine that would become Icee.

The chamber is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
