Originating in Texas in 1927, 7-Eleven was the world’s first convenience store. Today, 7-Eleven has over 60,000 stores around the world and continues to be a beloved destination for road trip pit stops, beer runs, emergency medical supplies, and 24-hour snacks.
As the first of its kind, 7-Eleven spawned a long list of original ideas that have become the hallmark of modern living. 7- Eleven spawned the first to-go coffee cups. They also invented the self-serve soda fountain that you can now use to create the fizzy concoction of your choice.
Perhaps the most iconic 7-Eleven invention is the Slurpee, an icy, slushie, and sinfully sweet drink that you slurp through a special straw with its characteristic spooned end.
The Slurpee is so popular that various other popular food, entertainment, and retail establishments have followed suit. Burger King, Target, and most movie theaters offer their version of Slurpees.
Nevertheless, 7-Eleven’s Slurpee reigns supreme and offers the most varied selection of flavors, from Cola to fruit. Read on as I delve into the best 7-Eleven Slurpee flavors to try on your next convenient store run.
Check out the most popular slurpee flavors and 7-Eleven for your next cold treat!
If you’re wondering what a blue raspberry tastes like, your guess is as good as ours.
Regardless, this super sweet, slightly fruity, and electric blue beverage is a fan favorite.
It’s a cross between forest berries and the blue crush Powerade flavor with that characteristic slushie, ice-cold, and smooth texture that’ll get you hooked.
Everyone will know you chose blue raspberry by the bright blue tongue and teeth you’ll surely have upon finishing a cup.
It’s certainly the gift that keeps on giving! While kids might brandish blue mouths as a sign of their good fortune in special snack endeavors, adults might want to buy a travel-sized toothbrushing kit along with their Slurpee purchase.
We can all agree that the most classic choice in both the soda fountain and Slurpee realm is Coca-Cola.
Just as it’s the world’s favorite and biggest-selling soft drink, so too is Coca-Cola’s widespread appeal as the best Slurpee flavor.
Coke’s uniquely refreshing flavor is perfect on its own, but as we’ve seen with the variations of coke flavors out there, it also tastes amazing combined with other popular flavors.
I love spicing up this classic Slurpee by filling the cup halfway with coca-cola and halfway with wild cherry for a delicious cherry coke Slurpee.
When 7-Eleven first came out with the Slurpee, the original flavors were Coca-Cola and Wild Cherry.
The two remain 7-Eleven’s most sought-after flavor staples. Wild Cherry offers the perfect balance of sweet and tangy with a fizzy, soda-like finish.
It’s the most distinct flavor on the list and the perfect pairing for Coca-Cola or Lemonade Slurpee mixes.
Originally just “cherry,” 7-Eleven changed the name to Wild Cherry, which aptly describes its famous zingy tang that goes so well with its slightly carbonated liquid.
It’s an addictive taste and mouth sensation that you can’t stop slurping. Watch out for those pesky brain freezes!
Even if it’s the dead of winter, you can still evoke the image of yourself lounging on a sunny beach, sipping tropical-flavored beverages out of hollowed-out coconuts.
You can get into a tropical state of mind with 7-Eleven’s exotic Pina Colada Slurpee.
The combination of sweet, tangy pineapple and creamy, nutty coconut makes this luxurious flavor worth a try.
The creamy flavor of the coconut pairs perfectly with the velvety ice texture. It may be lacking the rum to make it a cocktail, but the high sugar content is just as intoxicating.
You’ll still enter a tropical stupor as an adult while your kids bounce off the walls!
Black Cherry Pepsi
Instead of having to combine Slurpee flavors for complexity, the Black Cherry Pepsi offers a complete package of the classic cola and cherry duo.
Unlike wild cherry, the Black Cherry Pepsi offers a more classic, rich cherry flavor without the tang. The cola flavor is also somewhat more subtle than Coca-Cola.
Pepsi and Coke may be longstanding rivals, so perhaps you should take the Pepsi challenge on this Slurpee to decide for yourself.
There’s a good chance Black Cherry Pepsi Slurpee will become your go-to beverage if you like a well-balanced, less carbonated, yet delicately flavored cherry-cola flavor.
While 7-Eleven is Dallas-born, Dr. Pepper originated just a few hours south in the Texas town of Waco.
Therefore, this delectable slushie concoction is pure Texas pride and joy. In my opinion, Dr. Pepper delivers one of the most interesting soft drink flavors on the market.
It manages to neutralize an almost overpowering sweetness with a miraculous, secret 23-flavor potion.
So if you are a Dr. Pepper fan like me or simply intrigued by its popularity, this Slurpee is the cream of the crop.
The slushie texture and high ice content blend perfectly with the bold flavor and high carbonation. It’s the perfect beverage.
The only beverage more refreshing than an ice-cold lemonade is an ice-cold lemonade Slurpee.
This bright and sunny refreshment will cheer you up even on the gloomiest of days with its vibrant citrus tartness countered by a healthy dose of sugar.
7-Eleven uses real lemons to create their lemonade Slurpee mixture, and they often come out with seasonal lemonade specials like grapefruit or pomegranate lemonade.
Still, this pure and simple lemonade Slurpee is as wholesome and delicious as a homemade lemonade stand.
It tastes just as good with salty snacks as it does with a sleeve of your favorite cookies.
If you grew up in the ‘90s, you’re probably familiar with Mountain Dew’s infamous allure.
Its radioactive neon green color is as ominous and exciting as its unique taste with a sugar content that will fuel all-night study benders and rowdy adolescent sleepovers.
So whenever I need to power through the night while sipping something delicious, the Mountain Dew Slurpee lives up to its legendary reputation.
It’s even better than drinking it in soda form as the icy texture makes it more palatable and ensures that you pace yourself. Whether you slurp it fast or slow, you’re still in for a wild ride!
