I want a Buzz Cola-Flavored Squishee and a Pink Donut


DALLAS – Over the weekend, 7-Eleven Inc. turned a dozen stores into Kwik-E-Marts, the fictional convenience stores of “The Simpsons” fame, in the latest example of marketers making life imitate art.

Those stores and most of the 6,000-plus other 7-Elevens in North America will sell items that until now existed only on television: Buzz Cola, KrustyO’s cereal and Squishees, the slushy drink knockoff of Slurpees.

The U.S. locations where a 7-Eleven store was transformed into a Kwik-E-Mart are New York City; Chicago; Dallas; Denver; Burbank, Calif.; Los Angeles; Henderson, Nev.; Orlando, Fla.; Mountain View, Calif.; Seattle; and Bladensburg, Md.

    Right. After all the site is named after a way to go to Burger King and actually get a decent burger out of them. Its no surprise it would also note something interesting being done by 7-11.

    I agree. It’s an interesting bit of news that IS food-related. Plus, you know, who doesn’t want a big bowl of Krusty-Os?

    Do they sell Skittlebrau? If not, can I get a 6 of Duff and some Skittles?
    What about Flintstones chewable Morphine?

    I stopped into my local 7-11 for a quick drink, and saw those pink donuts. The pinkest donuts I have ever seen! I’d have a hard time eating something that color.
