7-ELEVEN has offered fans the chance to bring their own, and customers are lining up to fill their own cups with an iconic frozen treat.
Just in time for warmer weather, 7-Eleven Inc. is hosting Bring Your Own Cup Day (BYOCD) on April 29th.
For just $1.99, customers can fill any container they bring with them with a Slurpee of their choice.
You can head to participating 7-Eleven, Speedway, and Stripes stores to fill up and sample the new sugar-free Fanta Dragon Fruit flavor.
Of course, all the classics such as Coca-Cola, cherry and blue raspberry are also included.
“We love when customers enjoy our products in a fun way—especially when it comes to our beloved, iconic Slurpee beverage,” said Ben Boulden, 7-Eleven’s director of proprietary beverages.
“From cowboy boots to goldfish bowls… the more creative the mug, the better.
There are some rules and guidelines that you must follow in order to participate in BYOCD.
First, while quirky things like astronaut helmets and trophies are encouraged, they must be food safe and clean.
The “cup” also must be no larger than 10 inches to fit under the Slurpee dispenser.
And you should make sure your container is watertight to avoid spills.
SLURPIES FOR ON THE GO
If you’d rather avoid the chaos, you can have a Slurpee delivered straight to your door.
7-Eleven is testing self-driving robots that deliver snacks and drinks in Los Angeles.
Creator Serve Robotics announced the partnership in late 2021, but the robots didn’t launch until February of this year.
Delivery fees are $2.99, which is the price of a human driver, but you’ll save money because the robots don’t receive tips.
The delivery droids have drink holders and will slow down on bumpy spots to avoid spilling.
Plus, your food is locked inside, so no one can steal your snacks. Once it arrives, enter a code to retrieve your order.
The robots are reserved for short trips and cannot carry more than 50 pounds.
As you enjoy your Slurpee, reminisce about these discontinued drinks.
