7-Eleven Goes Yellow

Posted on July 19, 2007 Under Food

7-Eleven just announced the conversion of all "participating stores" to be temporary Kwik-E-Marts (or at least they did on the radio"¦I have yet to track down a news release). The lucky girl I am, I happen to live near one of the original 12 Kwik-E-Marts for the Simpsons Movie promotion. The San Francisco area store is actually in Mountain View, near nothing except the Google Campus, and I think it's time for a low-down on what not to miss and what to skip.

My favorite offering has to be the Blue Woo Hoo! Vanilla Squishee, a concoction that tastes like vanilla frosting"¦on ice. While I chose to have a pure Squishee, the thought of having one with the standard coke and cherry Slurpee mix is mind-boggling. While it’s awesome to see the KrustyO's, I recommend skipping them"¦unless you really want the box or would love to pay close to $4 for generic Fruit Loops. The Kwik-E-Marts are doing very well — not that surprising, really — so even if you're not looking for a sugar rush, go check them out. You can find the list of participating stores here.
