Chomp on This: 7-Eleven Introduces Shark Week-Themed Snacks
Planning on hosting a Shark Week viewing party? 7-Eleven has got you covered for snacks. Mashable reports that the convenience store chain has released an exclusive line of shark-themed treats just in time for the Discovery Channel's annual, week-long TV programming block celebrating the fearsome cartilaginous fish.
The goodies, which are already in 7-Eleven’s stores, are part of an eight-week promotion that coincides with Shark Week, which runs this year from June 26 through July 3. The promotion leads up to 7-Eleven Day, a celebration of the Slurpee’s 50th anniversary, held on July 11.
The shark snacks will include a Blue Raspberry-flavored Slurpee, shark-themed donuts, and shark-shaped gummy candies. As for shark swag, you can sip your Slurpee from a Slurpee fish bowl or a Shark Bite Slurpee cup via a (you guessed it) Slurpee shark straw. For those people who only swing by 7-Eleven for a quick cup of Joe, “Stay Hot" shark-themed coffee cups will also be available for purchase.
This year marks Discovery’s 28th annual Shark Week. Last year’s Shark Week averaged a staggering 1.269 million viewers throughout the week. Let’s hope this year’s multitudes of fans enjoy Blue Raspberry!
