7-Eleven’s Healthy Food Options

7-Eleven Bowery Slurpee LiteBreaking news in the East Village: 7-Eleven’s “healthy food options” have arrived at the Bowery 7-Eleven. What are they you ask? Salads? Vegetarian food? Vegan options? No. Lite Slurpees with goofy names like Slurpee Lite Sugar Free Sprite and Slurpee Fanta Oddball Orange. Lite Slurpees – much like Diet Doritos – are an oxymoron. Once again it’s nothing but junk food from 7-Eleven.

Checking in with 7-Eleven on the Bowery

7-Eleven on the BoweryNow that’s a window display! Is this an example of the attractive new stores 7-Eleven spokesperson Margaret Chabris has been carrying on about in the press? Let’s have a look, shall we? Two empty cups, two lonely bananas and two shrink-wrapped bagels baking in the hot afternoon sun. Mmm! And only $2!  But first you’ll have to step over the garbage on the floor to get to this bargain breakfast!

Good work 7-Eleven!
