What is it?
A strange marriage between 7-Eleven and the Cap’n to say the least – Crunch Berries Slurpee.
How is it?
I was skeptical, but this really hit the mark. They managed to “slurpitize” Cap’n Crunch Berries.
It was especially good for the first few sips while the ice was still crystallized. You get the classic Crunch Berries taste up front, but also a starchy cereal flavor. This is basically “Oops! All Berries” in Slurpee form, but I contend there is a hint of the corn cereal pieces in there as well that brought a nice dry finish to early sips.
While I’m pretty positive there’s no lactose element, they somehow managed to mimic a milky vanilla creaminess. It’s somehow both creamy and icy, but in no way like ice cream – if that makes sense. Just nod your head.
Those flavors paired with the fluffy slush reminded me a bit of cotton candy.
Is there anything else I need to know?
You probably need to be a fan of Crunch Berries to enjoy this. While I figured this was a berry-flavored frozen drink that they just slapped a familiar name on, it honestly tastes like full-blown Cap’n Crunch cereal.
It may be shocking to taste these flavors at this temperature, but I really dug it.
I would recommend getting a small because it’s best fresh from the machine. Once the ice melted, it became a slurry of pure syrup.
This is an ambitious partnership. I imagine it may be polarizing as it is definitely strange to taste cereal in frozen form, but I’d say give it a go. It won’t be around forever, and Slurpees cost a buck and change.
Some 7-Eleven stores are also selling exclusive Cap’n Crunch Slurpee T-shirts, and I won’t lie, I’m pretty mad I didn’t get one.
Oh, and be forewarned, you’re gonna have a blue tongue.
