Slurpees!

I'm probably one of few americans who isn't really familiar with Slurpees.  I grew up in a town without 7-11, so I guess this makes sense.

I only had my first Slurpee a year ago, when I was on a liquids diet for medical reasons, and wasn't that impressed (although, I was so sick of only drinking things at that point, that I think I wouldn't have liked anything ...).  That was the only Slurpee I ever had.  This past week was July 11, and 7-11 was giving out Slurpees to celebrate.  I was tempted to check it out, but it seemed like too much effort for something I didn't really care about.  But today, as I was walking through Union Square, the 7-11 cart was out with free Slurpees!  So, I got to try my 2nd and 3rd Slurpees ever.  Unfortunately, it felt like winter outside, so a nice refreshing icy drink wasn't exactly what I wanted ... but I could imagine enjoying one of these on a hot summer day, if we ever got those!
Slurpee Lite™ Fanta Sugar-free Mango.
This had a good mango flavor, and wasn't fake tasting even though it was sugar free.  I really liked the fizz to it.  Carbonated sweet ice is pretty good! [ I loved the ice-ness, but found the flavor seriously lacking. ]
Coca-Cola Classic Slurpee.
This really just was a frozen Coke.  I again found the carbonation to be pretty fun, but meh, just a Coke.
