BIG Beverage News!

It’s 7-Eleven Day (a.k.a., July 11th)! That means you can get a free small “Slurpee” TODAY if you stop by a participating 7-Eleven between 11:00am and 7:00pm. Just don’t confuse this with “Bring Your Own Cup Day” when you can bring ANY container in and fill it up (that happens in November around Black Friday). In OTHER beverage news . . . Starbucks is now selling its new “Tie-Dye Frappuccino.” It’s only for a limited time, while supplies last, and it’s supposed to be tropical fruit-flavored, with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles on top. Reviews are mixed, some say it tastes like banana candy, while others say it tastes like that white stick you get with a pack of Fun Dip. And apparently baristas aren’t thrilled about the new “Tie-Dye Frappuccino” because it’s a huge pain to make, and glitter gets everywhere.
