wait...why aren't there 7-11's?

do they own another convenience store chain and only have 7-11's in some and whatever the other store is in other cities?

 

this is very foreign to me. every two bit hick town around here has a sev

They seem to be regional to some extent. eg, I'm in Nashville, and no 7-11s here. (According to their website, the nearest one is in Missouri! :shock: )

We used to have them all over Houston. One of my fondest memories as a pre-teen was riding my bike to the corner 7-11, buying a Slurpee, and playing video games in their makeshift gamerooms.

 

Then at some point they decided to pull out. The old 7-11 is now a Used tire store.

 

Houston now has mostly Stop 'n Go stores. You can't get a slurpee anywhere, but you can get an Icee, which is very similar. Although I would love to try the Mountain Dew slurpee. That sounds pretty good!

we used to have them in the northeast, but WAWA beat them at their own ball game. :tu: Wawa came to town and offered a full deli, the cheapest gas in town, and sandwiches that rivaled even the best local sandwich shop. :P

Here in Oklahoma City, you can't drive more than a mile or two without driving past a 7-11 store.

 

If those are reusable, I'll pick at least one of them up for myself, and I'll be glad to pick up a set for anyone who wants one, too. Just PM me or something.

In Tulsa you are hard pressed to find anything that isn't a QuickTrip.

Mountain Dew Slurpees are the only ones I get. They're awesome. Every once in a great while I'll get a Coke, if I feel I need a change. One of the 7-11's near me had SoBe Energy Slurpees for a while, which I really liked.

I think they should be reusable. They look like they're pretty good quality from the pictures. I'm hoping they're like the X-Games collector cups that they had recently. Those cost an extra dollar or two, but were really thick plastic.

 

I'd also be happy to pick a set or two up for anyone who doesn't have a 7-11 near them. Just let me know.

While I'm a littler nervous seeing Halo going this mainstream...

 

Yeah, that's the way I feel as well. I was in some game shops yesterday and I saw a bunch of Halo action figures all over the place. Good for Bungie and I hope they make a zillion bucks on all this stuff, but I still feel sad seeing the Disneyfication of what I had considered to be kind of "my" game on "my" system. As an Xbox owner in a PS2 world I've always felt like I was part of a "club" almost, and seeing our "club's" mascot splayed all over a Slurpee cup is a little disorienting. :P

If anyone sees the cups and wants them, make sure to get all three at once and don't put it off. I went to buy another set of them this afternoon and they're already ALL GONE!

 

I went to 3 or 4 other stores in my area, and none of them have any. I'm not sure why I didn't ask if/when they're getting more in, but I'll try to remember to ask them tomorrow.

I checked with a store last week, and the guy had no idea about anything Halo. One thing that troubles me (as much as one can be "troubled" about some silk-screened plastic cups) is that, as far as I know, no 7-11 store here sells "Slurpees"--they're all called "Icees". And maybe they can't put "Icees" into "Slurpee" cups or something.

Anyway, I noticed a thread over at DVD Talk about the cups. Apparently Mountain Dew and 7-11 are doing not only the cup promotion, but also they're giving away Halo 2 t-shirts with a certain number of Mountain Dew purchases. Here's the site:

 

http://www.mountaindew.com/slurpee/halo2/i...243∨=slrp.331

 

(And that link can also be gotten to by going to the Slurpees.com link in the first post--but it just points back to the above URL.)

 

And I wouldn't think that the cups would be in and out of stores that quickly. I mean, this looks to be a fairly big promotion, and the game doesn't even come out for another month. I'm sure we'll see more stores doing this building up through the release and even after that.

A 7-11 that doesn't sell Slurpees? That's just sacrilege!

Yeah, isn't that weird? But I've lived here all 28 years of my life, and have probably gotten several hundred of these things at several dozen different stores, and they've always been "Icys"--never "Slurpees".

 

They've even had commercials during the summer before, complete with annoying "Icy drink" jingle.

 

So, I have no idea what the deal is. It'd be like, in your town, if all the McDonald's sold "Huge Macs" instead of "Big Macs" or something.

 

I just hope that this stupid, "what do we call our frozen ice beverages" thing doesn't mean that I can't get these Halo cups locally. . .
