10 Best 7 11 Slurpee Flavors

1. Pina Colada

Aesthetically pleasing to the eye, great for layering, and neither too sweet nor too bland, Pina Colada is the pinnacle of Slurpees. It stands great all on its own, and yet it plays nice with other flavors in a way that a lot of other slurpees don’t. The secret to pina colada? It’s got the exact same synthetic taste as every other “real” pina colada you’ve ever had. Well done.

Lemonade Slurpee

2. Lemonade

The lemonade Slurpee consists of three things. Sugary lemon flavoring, intense carbonation, and intense iciness. What it lacks in mixability with other flavors, it makes up in being the perfect blend of taste and sensation to combat vicious summer heat and mugginess.

Blue Raspberry/Wild Cherry Slurpee

3. Blue Raspberry/Wild Cherry

You know how you always see blue and red ICEEs are the movie theater and think to yourself, “I wish they had Slurpees instead?” Guess what? Slurpees are just 7-Eleven’s licensed branding of the ICEE formula. The red/blue binary is a part of the Slurpee lore, and it makes BR and WC natural choices for the top five flavors. Even through their flavors aren’t technically interchangeable, we treat them like they are because they’re classics. Also, it’s all about those vibrant colors.

Coca-Cola/Dr. Pepper Slurpee

4. Coca-Cola/Dr. Pepper*

Like Blue Raspberry and Wild Cherry, Coke’s a part of that core group of flavors that you know you can fall back on without fail. The taste is distinctive, yet familiar. The color isn’t bold, and it isn’t as mix worthy, but it’s reliable. The one downside is that by the time you get to the end of it, the flavor’s mostly gone and you’ve got tinted snow pooling at the bottom of your cup.
* All of this is true of Dr. Pepper too, but it tastes like Dr. Pepper and not Coke if you’re into that sort of thing.

Kiwi Strawberry Slurpee
7-Eleven

5. Kiwi Strawberry

Kiwi Strawberry is one of those flavors you can’t mess up, regardless of what form it comes in. Soda, “fruit juice,” flavored water, or Slurpee, it’s consistent. That’s both a good and a bad thing. On the one hand, you always know what you’re getting and if you’re in the mood for it, you’re golden. But then there’s nothing daring about going for the KS. Can you actually taste the kiwi? Questionable. Is the Slurpee refreshing? Probably. Is it Wild Cherry. NOPE.

Orange Slurpee

6. Orange

Orange is one of those off flavors that isn’t a one to one translation of what orange soda tastes like. Kel loves orange soda, it’s unclear that he’d love orange Slurpees. The taste is passable, and its mixability is fairly high, but as a standalone, it falls a little short.

Hawaiian Punch Slurpee

7. Hawaiian Punch

Honestly, when was the last time you drank Hawaiian Punch? As a “fruit drink” it can be hit or miss and unless it’s cold, it’s both astringent and saccharine. The Slurpee incarnation of Hawaiian Punch manages to avoid that completely because it’s frozen, but the drink still has an odd flavor palette. Hawaiian Punch works best as a supporting Slurpee, backing up a more leading flavor like Pina Colada.

Banana Slurpee

8. Banana

Artificial banana flavoring is one of those weird accidents of modern food science that you either love or hate. Does it taste like bananas? Not really? Is it a bad taste? Not particularly. The thing about banana Slurpees is that you’ve got to know what you’re getting into beforehand. It’s mouth-filling, heavily sweet, but not entirely offensive to the senses. You might think to add it to pina colada. Do not. It’s that sweet. Try mixing it with Lemonade to cut through the sugar.

Sour Patch Watermelon

9. Sour Patch Watermelon

All Slurpee flavors are opportunities for cross-branding, but there’s something strange about Sour Patch Watermelon. Specifically, Sour Patch Kids are candies and we don’t drink our candy. Say what you will about soda being liquid candy parts, but you’ve never actually drunk a Skittle, have you? If you’re into watermelon flavor and you’re a die-hard Sour Patch Kid fan, try it out but otherwise…nah.

Orange Creme Slurpee

10. Orange Creme

Creamsicles are a known quantity in our universe. They are citrus, they are vanilla, they are sherbet, and they are ice cream. They are not meant to be “lite,” which is to say that they are supposed to be full of sugar and calories and delicious, conflicting flavors. Orange Creme Slurpees, which are billed as being low-calorie Slurpees are none of these things.
The Idea behind a low-calorie Slurpee makes sense. Slurpees are packed with calories unless you’re getting the smallest size possible (8oz), which nobody does. Why not opt for a healthier Slurpee?
Because the taste is all wrong. Orange Creme tastes less like an interpretation of a Creamsicle, and more like a dosage of sugar-free orange cough medicine that’s been cut with tap water. If you’re in 7-Eleven thinking about buying a Slurpee, commit to the cause. Go full sugar, or go home.
