7-Eleven, Mondelez Offering Free Sour Patch Watermelon Slurpee

DALLAS — 7-Eleven Inc. is offering a free Sour Patch Watermelon-flavored Slurpee drink on July 25, which it has declared Sour Patch Kids Day. The convenience-store retailer is celebrating with a free medium Slurpee drink offer activated with the purchase of any Sour Patch Kids candy or Stride Sour Patch Kids gum and scan of 7-Eleven’s mobile app available at participating stores all day.

After downloading the 7-Eleven app, customers will automatically receive the offer via a coupon in the “Scan & Save” section of the 7-Eleven app.

“I am thrilled to partner with 7-Eleven on Sour Patch Kids Day to bring two fun brands together–Sour Patch Kids and Slurpee–with one great day-long offer. We hope fans will love it and join the fun with the Sour Patch Kids Slurpee Selfie Challenge #SPKSlurpeeSelfie,” said Tim Jones, vice president of convenience at Mondelez International, which makes Sour Patch Kids candy.

To spread the word on social media, the Sour Patch Kids Slurpee Selfie Challenge campaign encourages fans to post selfies of themselves on social media using the hashtag, #SPKSlurpeeSelfie, including Slurpee drinks and Sour Patch Kids candy.

The two treats also make an appearance in Summer Forever, a digital movie musical starring singer/songwriter Megan Nicole.

“Both Slurpee drinks and Sour Patch Kids candy are fun treats, and the new Watermelon Slurpee is already a big hit, both in stores and on social media,” said Laura Gordon, 7-Eleven vice president of marketing and brand innovation. “Sour Patch Kids Day offers another chance after 7-Eleven Day to get a free Slurpee drink this summer. The selfie challenge and Summer Forever digital movie give us an opportunity to spread the summer fun to even more people.”
