7-Eleven Killed The Hipster: You Can Get Slurpees In Mason Jars With Mustache Straws
7-Eleven has jumped on the hipster bandwagon (a buck short, a day late) by offering a new vessel for your Slurpees: plastic mason jar mugs accompanied with mustache straws.
Drinking out a Big Gulp cup is so last year. For 99 cents, you can get one of the mustache straws or for $2.99 the plastic mason jars that they describe as "retro-like cups" (because retro = instant cool) that come in four different bright colors.
"It was only a matter of time," according to a 7-Eleven press release.
It gets better—mustachioed greats like Hulk Hogan and Ron Swanson may have inspired 7-Eleven to launch this idea. “People in our office have unofficially named the four mustache styles,” said Laura Gordon, 7-Eleven vice president of brand innovation and marketing. "The British, the handlebar, the Hogan after wrestler Hulk Hogan, and the Swanson, as in Ron Swanson, a character on NBC’s 'Parks and Recreation' sit-com series played by Nick Offerman."
The folks at 7-Eleven told LAist that most locations throughout the nation will carry these mugs this summer. And it looks like some folks are already enjoying them:
