Background information Edit
Slusho was a reference to J.J. Abrams' previous project Alias. It also played a heavy role in the viral marketing for Cloverfield, (from which Tagruato was also carried over), and appeared in a few other universes. In its original conception, it was a flavored frozen drink produced by a subsidiary of Tagruato, and spelled "Slusho!" (with exclamation mark).
