Depending on where you are when you read this, we are somewhere in the world on July 11th. Thus, a certain chain of convenience stores sharing digital similarities offers a free, unconditional Slurpee. It is one of the last good things that we have left in this brooding hell landscape. So thank you, 7-Eleven, for a little taste of salvation.
But did you know that a good thing could be an even better thing? These Slurpee machines put power in your hands, not behind the counter or with a cashier. So grab the democratic power of high fructose iced corn syrup and make your Slurpee even more delicious with Go out methods approved by staff.
100% Coke (with Coca-Cola soda)
I have already expressed my love on this site here, but I will die on Coke Slurpee Hill, which is one of the best drinks of all time (alcohol free division). While this is largely nostalgia: we offered to equip Coke Slurpees after a baseball training, but the sensation of Coca-Cola iced, to this day, provides a lot of fun.
I have a special technique when it comes to Slurpeeing. On several occasions in my youth, I was despised by the Slurpees who, reaching the bottom, were a mound of tasteless ice. I've never really liked picking up ice cubes with plastic straw. I therefore took the habit of first filling the Slurpee cup with two inches of Coca-Cola Classic soda. then by adding the Slurpee Coke to the top. This ensures that when I reach the bottom, I will have sparkling soda, not hard ice. [Kevin Pang]
75% coke and 25% berries
I grew up at a distance of 0.2 miles from a 7-Eleven (just Google Map). Once my brother and I were old enough to navigate a parking lot, we were often given a dollar a piece and were told to leave for Slurpees, giving my parents a 10-minute break. In front of such proximity, we became connoisseurs of the Slurpee machine, superimposing creations, lamenting the time when the Coca-Cola option was still too liquid. My favorite ratio to date is a 3: 1 blend of Coca-Cola and any proposed berry option. Whether it is wild cherry or blue raspberry, this does not have much importance because their taste is pretty much the same. Do not just mix Coca-Cola with Pina Colada, whatever you do. [Kate Bernot]
All wild cherries, all the time
Wild cherry is for me the only acceptable flavor of Slurpee. I've always been a fan of cherry snow cones … well, let's be honest here, cherry snow cone syrup. It evokes honest memories, Freeze Pops, and it's close to the Dairy Queen Cherry Dip, an understated dessert in my opinion.
I may be in the minority, but I do not have the love for frozen cocktails. For me, it takes the worst of the Coke flavor, which has a taste of metal burn, and amplifies it. If you are going to have an ice cold drink, you might as well choose a sweet and exhilarating drink. The flavor of coca is so average! [A.E. Dwyer]
