A Tale of Two Slurpees

On a recent quest for a tasty, cold Slurpee, something odd was discovered. While almost every single 7-Eleven I’d been to featured both Coke and cherry flavors, this one offered… Pepsi and blue raspberry!

I’m not a big fan of the cola-flavored Slurpee in the first place, but the cherry one? It’s pretty much a necessary thing when it comes to Slurpee enjoyment. I was faced with a dilemma: venture on to another 7-Eleven (surely not that far away) or just suck it up and enjoy another flavor? For last night’s purposes, I did the latter and tried a Mountain Dew slurpee. (It was fine, but the melted product looked even more suspicious than regular Mountain Dew does.)

But now I’m all curious about the Coke/Pepsi distribution. Is it 50/50? Does it depend on boring things like demographics and neighborhoods? Or does 7-Eleven just like to mess with our heads? -pm

The best was the Surge Slurpee. Guaranteed to keep you up all night.

Not sure Paul. I know the the stores carry both products, but Coke has always been the one that makes it into slurpee form.
MY fav. slurpee fav's growing up were orange, cherry, and lemon-lime.
