    Slurpee 'Stache Straws for Summer

    What's better than an ice cold Slurpee on a hot Texas summer day?

    A Slurpee in a mason jar with a mustache straw, of course!

    Yep, Dallas-based company 7-Eleven has rolled out a new way to sip on your Slurpee!

    The mustache straws are 99 cents and come in four styles and colors.

    “People in our office have unofficially named the four mustache styles,” said Laura Gordon, 7-Eleven vice president of brand innovation and marketing. “The British, the handlebar, the Hogan after wrestler Hulk Hogan, and the Swanson, as in Ron Swanson, a character on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” sit-com series played by Nick Offerman. I think it will be interesting to see which mustaches sell best. Of course, people can buy all four to match their Slurpee moods or if they want to slurp incognito.”

    The new refillable Mason Jar Mugs are $2.99 each. The retro-like plastic cups have screw-top lids, reusable straws (sans 'stache) and come in four colors -- green, blue, pink or orange.
