For those who are addicted to Slurpees from 7-Eleven stores and have smartphones, there’s a new app just for you! There’s now a 7-Eleven Slurpee locator app for iPhone and Android that “provides information on the nearest 7-Eleven stores and goes a step further by providing driving directions. Participants can also log which Slurpee flavors they find at each 7-Eleven store for other fans to view through the app,” according to a press release.
That’s a lot of on-the-ground Slurpee intel! I downloaded the app, and it requires you to create a Slurpee Nation account, which seems sort of annoying. (And I already know where the nearest 7-Eleven locations are to Washington City Paper‘s offices.)
“We want to provide fans a convenient way to find their favorite Slurpee drinks, no matter where they are, and easy access to cashing in their Slurpee Nation rewards points,” Laura Gordon, senior brand director for Slurpee, says in the press release.
So, is there a Squishee locator app?
