Happy free Slurpee day! Mom waited in line for about 20 minutes to get hers. She chose the red, which was probably cherry but labeled as raspberry. :) It looked like this, only with a lid and in a green cup instead of purple:
The other options were blue raspberry, sugar free mango lemonade, and Coca-Cola.
In my opinion, Slurpees are better than slushies and snow cones. Slushies and snow cones have bigger chunks of ice, which means you end up sucking up most of the flavoring right away in the liquid and are then left with fairly bland slush.
Slurpees are really good. You know what I think is even better? Glaciers! Around here, they are what we call it when slushies and soft serve vanilla ice cream are combined. I'm partial to the blue raspberry ones, since it looks like water and icebergs. I wonder if anyone's ever put vanilla ice cream in their Slurpee? Hmm, I may have to try that some day.
I want to know why it is that Coca-Cola and cherry are the standard flavors for freezy drinks. Those are both fine, but it seems to me that blue raspberry is generally more popular than either of those.
