Cappuccino Meets Slurpee in 7-Eleven(R) Canada's Newest Fat-Free Summer Drink
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - (CCNMatthews - June 12, 2007) - Just in time for summer, 7-Eleven in Canada has created a non-dairy, fat-free and cholesterol-free, cappuccino flavoured Slurpee. Slurpuccino is now available at all 463 stores across Canada for those wanting their favourite frozen cappuccino drink without all the fat.
7-Eleven's new beverage has 150 calories per 12 ounce serving. Most frozen cappuccino drinks from other vendors have between 190 and 300 calories. Slurpuccino also has no fat whereas competing frozen cappuccinos do.
7-Eleven's innovative Slurpuccino contains coffee extracts but has minimal caffeine. With 3.45 milligrams per 12 ounce serving, Slurpuccino has less caffeine than a Coke Slurpee and far less than an average cup of coffee.
"We wanted to create a fat and cholesterol free, icy cappuccino drink that would be a fun and tasty alternative for people who love coffee and Slurpees," says Brad Beaton, product manager for 7-Eleven Canada. "Slurpuccino is a refreshing frozen cappuccino drink."
