Twice the brain freeze: Dual-chamber Slurpee coming to 7-Eleven

You probably thought you left behind the evil genius at the soda fountain when you turned 12 and recognized that though it was fun to push the dispenser, your drink tasted awful. Now 7-Eleven is aiming to rekindle that poor-decision-making part of your adolescent brain.

The dual-chambered Slurpee will be unveiled in June with a cup that is capable of holding two distinct choices that can be combined via a special bifurcated straw only seconds before they hit your tongue.

The two straws enter a valve before the Slurpee combination makes its way to your yap. It appears that you will be able to mix or enjoy one flavor at a time. Gone are the days of layering Slurpees or attempting to find some balance between white cherry and Coca-Cola.

The dual-pronged soda straw is essentially an upgrade to previous cup innovations at 7-Eleven. Several summers ago, the convenience store was selling a drink that had soda on one side and a Slurpee on the other.

Perhaps this will finally put an end to the devastating feud between Blue Raspberry and Mountain Dew. Nothing good can come from a battle between artificial flavors.
