7-Eleven Makes Election-Themed Coffee Cups

Why wear your politicial affiliation on your sleeve when you can wear it on your 7-Eleven coffee-cup sleeve? The newest campaign from 7-Eleven lets you vote early, by picking between an Obama- or Romney-themed cup.

Fast Company reports that the election-themed coffee cups will be at selected locations, where a cup choice can be an official endorsement. What's even crazier? On its website, 7-Eleven is tracking how many Obama and Romney cups are sold and showing the percentages "won." So far, President Obama is leading 58 percent to Mitt Romney's 42 percent — could 7-Eleven accurately predict the next president? We guess so: the 2008 7-Eleven campaign predicted Obama's win.

Be sure to mark Sept. 28 on the calendar to get a free cup of coffee from 7-Eleven, political affiliations aside. We'll be watching people's coffee cups now.

The national infatuation with all things skinny has finally come to this: Slurpee Lite.

The brain-freezing drink best known for its weird colors, wild tastes and wacky name now wants to also be known for at least one redeeming feature: fewer calories.

In an unlikely national platform pegged for summer but rolling out this week, 7-Eleven, the nation's largest convenience chain, will announce a low-cal line of Slurpees. While 7-Eleven has sold low-cal, saccharin-based Slurpees regionally, this is the 45-year-old drink's first national, low-calorie line — and this one's made with Splenda.
