My wife is a Diet Coke fanatic, so I took her with me to test out the new Diet Coke Cherry Slurpee at 7-Eleven.
'7-Eleven' on Serious Eats
See what local flavors are stocking the shelves at 7-Elevens in Singapore.
Shaquille O'Neal already represents Reebok, Icy Hot/Gold Bond, Buick, and Zales. Clearly, cream soda is the next logical step. So we checked out the whole lineup of Soda Shaq AriZona cream sodas from 7-Eleven.
In the overwhelmingly dense shopping mecca of Hong Kong, the store I ended up shopping at most was...7-Eleven. Here's what you'll find inside.
It's hard to resist a Slurpee in the summer time, even if you're not a high school kid hanging around in the 7-Eleven parking lot. I'm drawn to the onomatopoeic name and its natural association with Bart Simpson. But does the world need a diet Slurpee? Just in time for the warm months, 7-Eleven has unleashed Slurpee Lite, a sugar-free frozen beverage with half the calories of your run of the mill Wild Cherry Slurpee. Today I sampled the Slurpee Lite Fanta Sugar-Free Mango, May's signature flavor.

If you live in a more reasonable precinct of the lower 48, you might not call $9 a bargain for a dozen cans of store-label beer, but in Cambridge, where nobody works yet everybody's rich, Game Day Ice Ale is a potential steal.
A distressing number of Cambridge pizzerias close at the ridiculous hour of Before I Want Pizza. Fortunately, what Cambridge lacks in slice options, it makes up for in 7-Elevens, and they've finally started selling pizza!
"While many folks wouldn't touch a gas station hot dog with a ten-foot pole, it inspires a cult-like following for others." Past Weeks' Dogs Slaw DogPuka DogThe Philly ComboTijuana DogsTexas WeinersFlo's Hot Dogs Over the last few weeks we've highlighted some fascinating regional hot dogs. But for most of us, eating a hot dog does not mean traveling halfway across the country to a roadside stand in a half-abandoned coal mining town. This week's dog is a style that many will be familiar with, possibly more so than we'd like to admit. While the object of much ridicule--the term "gas station hot dog" being a common euphemism for anything on the bottom of the culinary barrel--the 24-Hour Dog can be...
