NEWS: Mutant Berry Slurpee Sounds Significantly Less Bad Ass Than The Wolverine Movie It’s Promoting

Earlier this week, 7-Eleven introduced the Mutant Berry Slurpee to promote the release of the upcoming movie — X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Its flavor has been billed as Hawaiian Punch Berry Limeade Blast.

Along with the special Slurpee flavor, you can get 3D cups featuring either Wolverine, Sabretooth or Gambit, if you’re willing to pick up the largest Slurpee size and consume more sugar than any normal human should or you’re a mutant with the ability to turn the sugar you consumed into ice, fire or harmless butterflies.

The high fructose corn syrup sweetened beverage contains no caffeine and, despite its name, contains NO BERRIES. According to the ingredients list, it contains apples, pear passionfruit, pineapple and peach juices from concentrate, along with papaya and apricot purees.

An 8-ounce serving of Mutant Berry Slurpee contains 120 calories, 0 grams of fat, 40 milligrams of sodium, 28 grams of carbohydrates, 27 grams of sugar and 0 grams of protein. It will be available throughout the summer months.

  1. Hugh Jackman is so freaking hot! I wonder if he would let me slurp the slurpee off of his abs. Wolverines! Oh wait…wrong movie. I don’t care, he is still freaking hot!

  2. Who the hell names this drinks?? Seriously how can they even get away with the name when no traces of any type of berries in it?

  3. i can’t mess w/ these diabetes flavored ice joints – i’m a dr pepper man, man. but seriously, yesterday a work print version of this film was leaked on the internet.

  4. angry bob lumps superheroes in with vampires, wizards, and other popular culture things that escape him. What happened to good old fashioned angry people beating each other up with fists and 2x4s?

    Also, that dude seriously needs to trim his fingernails.

  5. The only way in hell I’d ever drink that is if by drinking it Wolverine would literally come off of the Slurpee cup and make sweet love to me in my high fructose corn syrup haze.

  6. Hmmm the flavor seems a bit dubious, not sure If I can support the berry flavor…but hey it least it will have discipline, I like wolverine, I just again have to wonder if I can stand drinking it, as it has HFCS and usually that means that the slurpee will be to sweet to be balanced.

  7. I think Angry Bob might be right on the money here, Wolverine needs a manicure badly still… As with most comic book flicks it does indeed deserve it’s own special slurpee flavor at 7-11…

  8. @govtdrone: If given the option between me slurping up the Slurpee off of his abs and you doing it, I’m pretty sure he would choose you.

    @amanda: I’m surprised it doesn’t have the word “blast” or “freeze” in it, like a lot of Slurpee flavors.

    @yr momz: I heard it wasn’t a complete version.

    @Heidi: It should be pink or pastel green.

    @daily comic book covers: The money is what makes selling out taste so good.

    @angry bob: Society has changed, so the movies have to change. I remember when I used to get beat up with fists. Nowadays kids get shot. Sad.

    @JamieSusan: If you drink HFCS with heroin, I’m pretty sure that could happen.

    @Villain was born like this…: Slurpee = extremely sweet

    @Vik the Viper: I wonder how one would manicure those things since they are indestructible.
