Lychee Slurpees! (More 7-11 love)

I lived off 7-11 when I was in Taiwan. Now this might sound stupid given the culinary options available on the island, but when you realize that this exists... well, I don't seem so foolish anymore huh? Yes I realize they spelled Lychee in a retarded fashion (Litchi? Where in the hell does the 't' come from anyway?), but does it really matter when you can enjoy a cup of liquid ice + fruit syrup? Oh and the best part, the super sized cups were only 25 NT (67 cents). I can't even buy a bottle of water for that. For that, I salute you 7-11 <3.

How does it taste? Yeah, um, about that authentic lychee flavor... maybe it was artificial, but it did taste kind of like the fruit. You could most certainly tell the difference between this, passion fruit, mango, and watermelon (they rotate flavors every month in case you couldn't tell). In all seriousness though, at way under $1, getting this much Slurpee of any flavor is a steal. Did I mention they had a raffle where if you bought 2 or more drinks you could pull for a discount of 11%, 21%, 51% off, all the way up to both costing only 1 NT? That was most definitely part of the reason I drank maybe 50 or 60 this past Summer.

In case you're wondering, additional flavors I got to try... citrus soda, 黑松 sarsparilla, and pina colada (on top of all the fruit ones listed above). An additional note... there will be more 7-11 posts to come, so those of you bitching to me in person about how stupid these posts are... you can suck it I'm sorry.
