S/F Mango Slurpee Nationwide
Fri Jun 29, 2012 11:26 amFood.com Groupie
There are approximately 80 calories in 16 ounces of a sugar free cherry apple Slurpee. There are close to 200 milligrams of sodium as well.
7-Eleven's Crystal Lite Slurpee nutritional information; Serving Size: 22oz.; Calories: 90, Total Fat: 0g, Carbs: 21g, Protein: 0g, no information available for a sugar free 24 oz Slurpee.
Different 7-11's have different Slurpee flavors depending on the day. Some options are: Coca Cola, Root Beer, Goji Berry Cherry, Invincible Orange, Mountain Dew, Blackberry Lime, Dr. Pepper, Crystal Light Peach Mango, Banana, Blue Raspberry, Orange, Kiwi Strawberry, and Pina Colada.
S/F Mango Slurpee has 20 calories/8 oz
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.
The move comes at a time when companies have been marketing everything from "Spam Lite" to "skinny cocktails" aimed at calorie-conscious consumers. "You have to wonder what would happen to the obesity epidemic if light products tasted better," says Lynn Dornblaser, new products guru at research firm Mintel.
Slurpee Lite will target females in their 20s with this tagline: "All flavor. No sugar." An 8-ounce Slurpee Lite Fanta Sugar-Free Mango has 20 calories vs. 66 calories in an 8-ounce Fanta Wild Cherry Slurpee drink, the best-selling conventional Slurpee.
It's all about juicing sales. "We talked to a group who said they would drink Slurpees more often if we take out the sugar and reduce the calories," says Laura Gordon, vice president of brand innovation. To get folks familiar with the line, 7-Eleven will offer free 7.11-ounce Slurpees on "SlurpFree Day" May 23. Lite Mango (and other flavors) will be available, but not two sugar-free flavors due this summer: strawberry banana and cherry limeade.
One nutritionist is unimpressed. "Now it's just a different kind of junk food," says Neal Barnard, adjunct associate professor of medicine at George Washington University. "This should not be mistaken as any kind of corporate responsibility. They're just trying to sell you the same stuff in a different package."
The overriding problem with most light foods and drinks: lousy taste.
Still, 80% of U.S. consumers say they're interested in low-calorie, low-fat or low-sugar foods. But 43% say the biggest challenge to dieting is the taste of diet foods, reports Mintel.
7-Eleven insists it's nailed low-cal taste. But Barnard warns: "Slurpee had zero nutritional value then, and it has zero nutritional value now."
