Brace yourselves Big Red fans, the vanilla flavored red soda gets a twist this summer and it’s pretty cool. Frozen actually, as in a new Big Red Slurpee flavor at 7-Eleven stores.
“Slurpee and Big Red both epitomize originality and fun, and pairing the two puts an exciting twist on a classic summer staple,” says Thomas Oh, senior vice president of Marketing at Big Red, Inc. “We’re very excited 7-Eleven chose Big Red to represent Texas for their regional flavor launch because Big Red and Slurpee are celebrated for their sweet taste and summertime fun.”
Unfortunately I wasn’t aware of this new flavor on July 11th, or the official Free Slurpee Day (get it… 7/11), but I did make it over to a store to try this unique South Texas flavor. And, yeah, it tastes just like an airy, frozen Big Red.
No word if there’s a forthcoming barbacoa flavored Slurpee.
