Hey Gang! Sheldon here! So I was out and about last night and I ran into my local 7-11 and what did I find? Well Wolverine ready to slice up my Slurpee!!! Below is the Official Slurpee release on a new ad campaign they have going during the new X-Men:Origin’s Wolverine film.

Accompanying the superhero Slurpee cups featuring action-packed graphics of Wolverine, Sabretooth and Gambit is a new, remarkable Slurpee flavor – Mutant Berry. Billed as Hawaiian Punch Berry Limeade Blast, the Dr Pepper-created flavor was one of the top vote-getters in independent taste tests held last summer

Not only will X-Men characters appear at the Slurpee machine, but a Slurpee beverage will make a brief cameo appearance in the upcoming movie. Big super-heroes have big thirsts, and Blob, an X-Men of gargantuan proportions, is seen with a Slurpee beverage colossally bigger than any found in a 7-Eleven store. His likeness, with Slurpee drink firmly in hand, is one of four collectible X-Men characters adorning Slurpee straws in April. Retailing for $1.69, each X-Men Origins: Wolverine Slurpee straw comes with a removable figure and a base on which to display it.

Besides the collectible, lenticular Slurpee cups and character straws, a special Big Gulp cup also has been created for the month-long promotion. Silver in color, the cup is inspired by Wolverine’s indestructible adamantium skeleton featured in the movie as part of the secret Weapon X program.

So there ya go run down to your local 7-11  and drink up all that Mutant Slurpee goodness!!
